XIII • La Mort
Reviews

I like most of the new tarot cards (Ace of Rods being the only exception). Advantages:

  • Provides +1 , which is the most important stat to gather clues and win the game
  • Seeker assets are rather cheap, so 3 ressources should be ok
  • Free to play if in opening hand (mulligan increases your chance of drawing it)
  • Does not conflict with existing assets with the new tarot slot
  • Is not an item, so it's immune to many treacheries that target these

Disadvantages

  • Second copy is a dead card, as players have only one tarot slot and it has no icons to commit
  • Conflicts with other tarot cards, if the investigator has access to more than one faction at level 1+
  • Ability to play this for free may motivate a player to mulligan important cards, like weapon assets

I think its worth acknowledging that while any tarot is a dead card, when running Higher Education, dead cards are fine. — Death by Chocolate · 12

One of the good tarots.

Compared to Dr. Milan Christopher and Alice Luxley costing 4 resources, paying 3 for +1 is very feasible. The fact that the card is worth the cost, even if you dont luck out and get it in the opening hand, that's a good tarot.

You can swap from Dr. Milan Christopher to Death • XIII to leave your ally slot free for other characters, for example Mr. "Rook", Leo De Luca, Beat Cop.

Obviously, you can stack Death • XIII and Dr. Milan Christopher, especially seeing as how Dr. Milan Christopher can pay for Death • XIII. This may or may not be too expensive in many decks, especially flex decks that are supposed to fight and clue even handedly.

Seekers have access to Studious. Two copies of Death hard mulligan'd for with two copies of studious gives you a 71% chance of seeing one in your opening hand. For comparison: 55% without any Studious, 45% with only one Death and both Studious, and just one Death with no Studious has 32% chance of appearing in your opening hand. — StyxTBeuford · 412
