Pretty good for a flex Amanda. She doesn't lose any tempo from putting it into play and you can put it under her as well for a good boost for those stats. But I think it's true home is definitely in a Joe Diamond deck. It protects his fragile sanity and the 2 stat boosts aren't wasted on him. Just make sure you have a way to tank 1 damage.

Not sure who else might want this. Everyone's favorite speedy block of cheese would enjoy the sanity soak and boost but I can't see him fighting a lot without his bullwhip. Maybe he would benefit more from a little moxie instead of ivory tower theorizing. If you really wanna turn your cluever into a combatant, then this is the card for you! Just remember to bring some acid, occult chants, long lost stones, blood books, terrifyingly intelligent crows, a scary disc, home alone trapmaking skills, and a ghost hunter.

Points for theme as well. Really connects with truly understanding the mythos and learning how to fight it. That is until it bites back.

A surprising number of scenario cards have one-off combat checks, I can see Monterey Jack running this for utility, especially if paired with a monster-killing Mystic. — OrionJA · 1
Sounds indeed great in Joe, in particular after a clean shave. — Susumu · 234

Like all the other lvl 3 composures, cool card. There are 3 reasons you should go for it even if your name is not Joe:

• The intellect passive boost, fast and slotless, always useful

• The resource sink to boost a hard investigation

• The horror soak if you cycle your deck often like Amanda, Harvey or Minh


Maybe a little comment for all the lvl 3 composures:

It is interesting that they are all "WOW" at a first glance before you realise that:

• 1 stat is useful and the other stat is usually the least important stat for that class: for , for , for , for , and anything that is not a Spell for .

This can also be a strength as it gives you a chance to pay your way in, in case you need to pass a Scenario Test of your weaker stat, yes even for that can now break some Locked Doors.

• Secondly, they are often geared to be discarded rapidly by only giving you 1 soak in your weakest point (Horror for , Health for and ).

More of a rules question,really: since the card text does not specifically say that non- direct damage / Horror musst be placed in the card, can you protect it with other soak e.g. an ally?

Is this 200 already?

Yes, that is correct. You are intended to protect this card with other cards with damage and horror soak. — DjMiniboss · 44
