First, I play with a couple of Wanteds in UGE Unlimited as there is a
time and place for directed damage and attacks.

An opponent playing with them, including a Big Bully deck isn't that
big of a threat. Keep in mind, at the most they can only have four
Wanteds in a deck and that's taking a couple of slots form other
useful cards.

Ways to deal with Wanted:
- LoTI
- Wabbit's Foot
- Protective Spirit
- Runners that are special resistant (ie - Ghost Who Walks and Dodger)
- SoC back on one of his runners.
- Remember specials can't be recycled, but the Runners they kill can.
- Wanted only lasts through the first attack

There's others as well, but this is OtToMH.
