The weight of it was reassuring, the metal warm against her skin.

Idol of Xanatos

This card is the best for Patrice Hathaway and makes her nearly invincible since she always gets "heal" back at 5 cards during upkeep phase. Moreover, this card can help her utilize useless cards in her hand every round.

Also, if you don't want to deal with Watcher from Another Dimension and are happy with 4 cards each round then Idol of Xanatos can be extremely helpful.

You’d have to be in dire straits to be taking that much damage a round. And the moon gem which can be played for zero actions is an even better pick. — MrGoldbee · 1386
@MrGoldbee what moon gem? — suds · 1

Ability : well representation of class. spending hand to do something. You will need quite some tutor power to run this card. which is generally stuffs.

Name : Idolising Thanatos, the god of death. seem quite cultism and to me. but yeah, good variety.

Interpretation : wearing a necklace should not physically tank you anything. Just your blind faith toward Xanatos give you confident to lucky dodge some hit and strong mind enough for some horror. Obsidian Bracelet should be the interpreted same way, just my opinion.

The weight of them was reassuring

best card so far BOOBA AWOOGA

Why do you need tutor power? It is not a card, you need early in a game. And even, if you would, it is an item (searchable with backpack), and it can be brought back from the graveyard, if you run "Short Supply" (Scavenging, Resourceful, Scrounge, ...) You probably mean general card draw to feed it? Which is also a seeker thing, but tutor means, that you are searching for a specific card. — Susumu · 326
oh sorry and thanks for correcting. I might not be familiar with card game vocab enough. that is exactly what I meant. just anyway to get any card on hand. — Pawley · 24
actual practical play : This card makes "fail into damage" more manageable. you can hold commit card and hope for luck more. eg. If you are on some typical test — Pawley · 24
