Reviews

I love the attention to detail in the picture of this card: the bitten-off fingers of the bloodied hand and the fact that the "Five of Pentacles" card is upside down in this picture. I wanted to see the significance behind the choice of this specific card and apparently the standard reading of this card is fairly negative. On the other hand, the reversed reading goes like this:

"The Five of Pentacles reversed indicates an end to difficult times, particularly if you have recently suffered a major financial hit or job loss. You may find new sources of income, a new job, or someone has offered to help you out while you get back on your feet. You may be starting to feel as if life is worth living again and regaining your self-confidence. Finally, you can see a way out of your financial difficulties and your hope is renewed." (Biddy Tarot)

On the side note, I'm using it my Calvin Wright deck (https://arkhamdb.com/deck/view/1053350) and it is a blast, especially when drawn in the opening hand, effectively letting him stay alive a bit longer :)

Yeah this card is fantastic for Calvin and pretty much useless otherwise. It’s hard to justify this in Survivor since they already have Coat/Keepsake. Calvin of course actually gets an increase to his stats essentially. — StyxTBeuford · 12435
are you sure you don't want to take this and Anna Kaslow in Stella for that sweet 10/10 health/sanity :P — Zinjanthropus · 161
@Zinjanthropus Haven't played Stella much yet, but from what I've seen about her I'd rather stick to Granny Orne than Anna Kaslow ;) — red.hexapus · 5

I think this is the worst of all the tarot cards because health and sanity are not relevant if you survive and the survivor class arleady has lots of cheap soaks, like Leather Coat, Cherished Keepsake, Madame Labranche and Peter Sylvestre. At least FFG remains consitent in releasing the weakest cards for the survivor faction, most of the time (and the fact that there's no 4 or 5 XP cards for them).

However for Calvin Wright this card is pretty good, as it increases his max health and sanity. So it's like +1 to all his stats.

Agnes will take this over Four of Cups every time — Adny · 1
Why would she? I'd rather have +1 will as mystic than +1 HP/sanity. Mystic also has Fearless and other sanity healing. — Django · 3498
As any other mystic, yes. But Agnes has already more will than (almost) any other mystic and that +1 sanity lets her use her special ability one more time. And that +1HP helps keep Peter(2) around longer — Adny · 1
Ashcan Pete has better utility out of these because it potentially keeps Duke alive longer, and he can pitch a second copy to ready an asset. Never having dead cards makes two copies fine for him (or if you get that annoying tarot weakness). — The_Wall · 231
I think it’s worth noting that for Wendy, Ashcan, or anyone running Cornered, the second tarot isn’t dead. — Death by Chocolate · 742
@The_Wall Ashcan’s ability doesn’t help with the tarot weakness because you can never choose to discard a Weakness. — Death by Chocolate · 742
@death by chocolate the rules state that you cannot optionally discard a weakness from hand. Once it has been played, I believe you could replace it with another card in that slot. — saintsaturn · 1
I think this is probably the best one just because of the synergy with Wendy, Pete, and Calvin. The first two being able to negate that dead card downside is huge. — housh · 103
If you think FFG releases the weakest cards for Survivor, you simply don't know how to play Survivor effectively. — Tilted Libra · 14
