I think there’s reason to play it over Plastcrete in Anarch as long as you know what you’re getting into. It’s a card that has use in every match-up, either as draw or damage protection, and it can be your meat damage protection when you really really need it, you just need to play differently. It’s definitely worse than Plastcrete, and in a Weyland heavy meta (which O&C might bring) you shouldn’t rely on it exclusively, but in the normal meta where Weyland isn’t omni-present I expect you’ll be able to get by. You trade your silver bullet in for a steel bullet. It’s way worse against Werewolves, but better in other situations.
We’ll see if I eat those words in said fiery, explosive death in the coming weeks. It’s definitely possible.
