Howard’s card text reads as follows: “Ongoing: Tap this to see the top card of your deck.” Once Howard is played, you can tap or click on him to see what your next card is.
This means if you play Howard on turn one, you will always know what your next card will be throughout the game so long as he survives or doesn’t have his ability taken away by Enchantress.
With his ability, Howard will combo with another recent Series Five entry in Iron Lad. Since Iron Lad can copy the text of your deck’s top card, all of the mystery and RNG of playing him will be taken away by Howard, allowing you to know whether or not it’s worth the play or if you should retreat and save some cubes.
Howard joins Nebula as another recent one-cost card that’s just a solid overall play for one energy, and he will likely fit into numerous different existing meta decks as a result.
