    While not as damaging to the game as Catcher, this card was still pretty ill-advised, since the dominance of discard draw led to a severe skewing of both the first generation and this one towards basic-oriented decks, and to strategies where many of the cards in your deck are expendable or easily used. In terms of power I'd give it about a 9/10, in terms of the value (by which I mean whether it makes the game better or worse in my opinion), I'd give it a 2 or 3.

    Ummmmm we needed catcher. If not for catcher we would have decks that were basically impossible to beat (Blastoise)

    That is one school of thought. Mine is closer to the one described in this post. In my view, cards like Juniper and Catcher limit the game in ways that are unhealthy. While they may make certain cards less powerful, it doesn't mean that their overall contribution to the game was good.

    Juniper has her pluses and minuses.

    1. She gives you a fresh hand and you draw 7 brand new cards.
    2. She might give you a great new hand.

    1. You have to ditch your whole hand when you use her.
    2. She might draw you into a worse hand than you had before.
    3. You might have her as your only supporter or and have another of her or 2, other Supporters or a catcher or 2 in your hand.

    I most certainly cannot give Juniper at 10/10

    She gets about a 7.5/10. She's good, but she's not always good.

    10/10 for her FA Juniper. I have 4 FA Junipers.

    Speaking of Juniper the card... it is simply the best supporter in the game, and has been since BW-on. Sure, you can discard things you don't want to, but you wouldn't use her if it was that bad. There are plenty of times were the discarding aspect is actually helpful, such as getting rid of junk cards, N when you have a large lead, and energies to be recycles through the discard. 7 cards is plenty to complete combo's, and rarely should a deck not be running at least 3 of these if not 4.

    Speaking of the FA specifically... this is a good FA, Juniper looks poppin' and the background is pretty cool. I would say it's the best looking FA supporter. Much better then FA Skyla who looks like she has some serious atrophy going on in her legs.

    Playability: (No / Somewhat / Yes)
