I wouldn't call BoP useless.. most of the small Runners (Dante, etc -
even Doc Apoc) will at the very worst stay the same, usually pop up to a
5/x, and, with a bit of luck (or Loaded Dice) pump up to 8/x or higher -
and I'd gladly trade Orion + BoP for Stomper.
The problem with BoP is that it pales in comparison with its 'big
brother' Fireball, and the 2Y difference just doesn't matter in a Mage
deck; that, and most mage decks are sleaze decks, not fighting decks.
I'd rather chance things with a Sleep (and bring along a second, tougher
Runner for when things go down) than *really* chance things with a BoP
Hellblast, of course, has other, better uses :)
But the switch you mentioned seems nice and balanced - but I'd rather an
entirely new card than a reprint from UW.
(Armor/Stamina stuff snipped, as I agree with it)
Beware the man who casts two shadows.
