Deviki allows you to run Master Skill cards with less risk of creating
a Master jam. Master jams are cool if you happen to be a DJ or guitar
player, but in V:tES should be avoided. With Deviki, you can dump your
skill cards into your ash heap during your discard phase, thus allowing
you to play a more pertinent Master card on your next turn. Deviki taps
- not an action - and retrieves it for Ali Kar. Obviously, she can
fish them out of your library before you even draw them, thus
preventing a jam from ever happening. You will want to try to produce
her early in the game to make her effective, so if you haven't
purchased 3 or 4 boxes of Kindred of Most Wanted, you might try to
trade for an additional copy or two to of this excellent rare ally.
