- Q: How does Vincent Lee interact with Ancestral Knowledge? Vincent Lee adds copies of On the Mend to his deck, which are set aside when each game begins - do they count towards the deckbuilding requirement that the deck must contain at least 10 skills? A: Vincent Lee’s “On the Mend” skills would not count toward the required 10 skills of Ancestral Knowledge.
After one of your card effects heals damage from an investigator or an investigator's Ally asset: Add one of your set-aside On the Mend skills to that investigator's hand.
effect: +1. You may heal 1 damage from an investigator or Ally asset at your location.
Vincent Lee - Back

Vincent Lee is a very active support character. It’s hard to forget he’s in play when he’s handing you a gory skill card every turn. And he has a very easy way to do it: bandages and scrounging. If you can take the damage, and then certain campaigns you absolutely can, he can heal you and give you that +2 buff.
Vincent may be the most “feature complete“ character with one XP. Once he has Jessica Hyde, Dr. Lee becomes Dr. Jekyll. With his Bonesaw, you can take a damage every round, and get on the mend in time for the mythos phase.
Like Carolyn Fern, he has a secret advantage of giving other investigators three bonus XP at the start of a campaign, because “in the thick of it“ goes from penalty to opportunity.
Question, how do his copies of on the mend interact with Ancestral memory?
Do they count as skills in my deck for the 10 skill requirement, or are they like bonded cards?
I assume they cannot be put under ancestral memory?
What makes heal decks more viable now is not cards such as Soul Sanctification but Vincent Lee the investigator's deckbuilding options. Because he can use any cards 0-5 that can heal, he has a wide and versatile library of deckbuilding options that was hitherto unavaiable for any investigator. Runic Axe becomes monstrous with him, and he can be a very effective fighter even as a primary cluever.
