    Anyone running Springer and Sandstorm together? Been playing around with it, had some success. If anyone is running them, I'd love to see your deck lists.

    I never even thought about that. Honestly there was nothing about Sandstorm that interested me

    might have to rethink that

    I ran them together in sealed. The problem is you always want to flip Springer, while Sandstorm also needs to be flipping to target foes.

    Springer needs partners that either need to flip only once or never at all.

    I like the idea. I am sure it will become interesting once we get more Helicopter support cards.

    Shouldn't Conversion Engine fix this problem?

    Maybe. You’ve got to draw it and play it. Until you do you have a problem. Once you have it, you’re golden. I’m also reluctant to rely on items as there is so much item hate in the game.

    It's mainly focused on Weapons and Armor though. Your opponent will tend to hold off on scrapping your Utilities in lieu of wanting to scrap that weapon/armor on your character. Still, you're not wrong to depend soley on a utility to make Springer more effective.

    Hmm, with Treasure Hunt in a Upgrade heavy build one might increase the chance to draw it.

    I think till then one can use Rapid Conversion.

    Yeah. And Showing off. Showing off with a kinetic converter is a god combo for Springer, and best yet it’s all useful on its own.
