Fey
Reviews

Fey is a natural addition to any deck that runs Blasphemous Covenant and Favor of the Moon. Every time you use Favor of the Moon on a skill test, you gain bonus of +3/+4 (or a +5/+7, if you're committing two copies of Fey) and a resource. And Fey returns to hand even if you fail somehow.

Since you're a probably seeker playing Deep Knowledge, it's almost trivial to always keep a Favor of the Moon in play; by the time you've depleted a Favor, you'd probably have the other one in hand from all your draw. It's the most reliable way to handle The King in Yellow yet and an easy inclusion in any Luke/Gloria/Daisy deploying the cursed spell suite. If you're Amanda Sharpe, you can return Fey to your hand to put it under for a second time. This effect is also amazing in the City of Archives.

Outside of such a combo, Fey is rarely worth the 1xp it takes to purchase the card.

It is neat for Minh! — MrGoldbee · 1061
2xp for two extra copies of unexpected courage that have no restriction on commits sounds pretty amazing to me, I see the curse return effect as a bonus feature not the main event. — Zerogrim · 187
Considering that I usually don't even add Unexpected Courages to decks anymore, I wouldn't pay 2xp more for just 2 more copies, no. — suika · 7644
Really depends on the deck. Silas could recur this with True Survivor, and both Silas and Amanda might appreciate the +3 will to protect themselves. But for the most part I do think this card is very underwhelming. It’s a slightly better UC for 1XP. It’s unlikely to help you substantially more than UC, a 0 XP card that, like suika, I dont take all that often anymore. — StyxTBeuford · 12473
I am curious though if it is a very worthwhile card with Favor of the Moon, but that also feels kind of self defeating since curses -2 to your skill anyway, so you’re more trying to stack against a heavily curses bag with these, and Favor of the Moon and many other cards already do a much more proactive job of that. — StyxTBeuford · 12473

A large 3-icon skill card with no conditions but also no straight buffs, for 1 XP it's a little underwhelming.

2 and 1 means that it's a perfectly good defensive bulwark card, although in most decks you'dd probably rather have a Guts, in-faction you'dd probably rather take Inquiring Mind, and for 1 XP it's supposedly as good as Sharp Vision and Brute Force, but I beg to differ.

Once you add curse tokens to a bag. you up the risk factors in a token pull quite a bit, Fey helps you keep up with the risks a bit, brave the odds more safely and every now and then, you can do some combos.

Namely, Gloria Goldberg, Daisy Walker and Luke Robinson can all dip into a build with the cursed spell trio The Eye of Chaos, Armageddon and Shroud of Shadows. There's also the characters dipping into "Lucky" Penny, Eye of the Djinn and other themed payoff mechanics.

I'm not quite seeing it yet. But plying the waters of a 10- deck with a Fey committed feels a lot safer than not, and playing it over and over into test after test sure is going to help you get through all those self-inflicted penalties.

Pair with Blasphemous Covenant & Favor of the moon. Clean the bag and profit. — MrGoldbee · 1061
