One of my favorite times in the evolution of a strategy is when there are just enough cards to build a Deck, but not quite enough to build a fully dedicated Deck that only uses cards from a given theme.

Jar of Avarice is a card that takes words you’re already familiar with and combines them in a new way, and the result does almost exactly what you’d expect it to! It’s actually better than expected.
