Allie xp1: She rarely can make back her upkeep, prevents you from having original Allie, and is booted at home from completing her job at best.
Benny McGill: Way to low a value to play in deck, even for low value huckster. No influence and draw. I could never fit him into starting crew
Tallulah "Lula" Morgan: Sure she's only 4 for 3 influence, but the value and upkeep keep her out of my decks. Her ability only works if you have taken a 2 upkeep or better deed which your opponent might not have in play. Playing her with The Place just doesn't wow me enough.
Erin Knight: Just too expensive. The GR can be far better spent elsewhere for LD.
Howard Aswell: Only playable in a deck running little to no deeds, starting Memorial Ranch, and grabbing an improvement. I've tried it, and having to few diamonds kills a deck.
Dr. Emanuel Ashbel: Too low value for most gadgeting. Preventing an acing doesn't do enough to help board state, and can fail the pull. Upkeep 2 on a non shooter.
Slade Lighbody: Higher cost and lower value than many of your other better hucksters.
Michael "The Badger" Dodge: Kung fu dude who's ability doesn't go as well when you pull a club. Alright with a nunchucks, but his value keeps him out of many of my builds.
The Fabulous Mister Miss: Never found him/her worth playing.
James Ghetty: Too expensive to use as a Scientist. Ability restricted to too few cards. Much stronger and faster combos available.
Abuelita Espinoza: Just too conditional a trait and upkeep even for her 3 inf. Competes on 8 value with Steven and some other dudes.
Caitlin McCue: Over costed for her stats. Inconsequential trait.
Clyde Owens: He's good, but very very expensive.
Harold Aimslee: Way to expensive to show up in even my deck that was regularly drowning in GR.
