This card is a representation of an ongoing problem with Law Dogs dudes and one of the biggest issues with playing the faction: no influence. This card would be absolutely fanctastic, and a serious starter if it had a single influence, but for some reason it doesn't. I view this and Philip Swinford next to each other and both are deputies with one draw for three cost and no upkeep. I would argue that Philip Swinford has a better trait than Janosz Pratt's ability, which is fine since Janosz Pratt has Mad Scientist 1 skill. I view them as equal in this regard. Then, for some reason, Philip Swinford gets 1 influence and Janosz Pratt gets nothing. Starting influence is a big deal and as a 3 value this is a starter in a gadget deck. So what's going on? Why cripple the card by making it a zero influence? For this reason I'm struggling to add this card to a starting posse. End rant.
