So, first up this is a miracle which means it’s pretty much a Law Dogs card for right now. While I haven’t seen the miracle decks making that big of a splash thus far, this seems like exactly the type of card they need – not only does it enable you to fetch a dude when you need them, but it’s giving them the boost of influence, a very powerful add to most dudes. At Jack rank it’s a good fit for any skill deck, letting you make your skill checks most of the time.
As to the downsides: firstly this is a job – one which targets town square. Meaning your opponent will almost assuredly contest your acquisition. The very similar Recruitment Drive doesn’t see much play these days, after all. (However being able to fetch from deck means this is much more powerful than the limited discard pile only) The other down side is that it’s a one shot (barring Whatley Estate) though this is limited in that you’d likely only pull off the job a few times in a game anyway.
In all I would expect this to see play in a Shootin’ Miracle deck should such a thing materialize. For now it’ll likely be waiting for its moment to shine, should it come.
Happy trails, Pardner!
