    Very comprehensive writeup. Well done.

    This card works well with resource denial decks. It’s also commonly used early game because you deprive you opponent with a resource and on their next turn they are forced to resource another card. So in a way you took away their draw. Works in synergy with Cobraskin in a resource denial Baduruu. This card works well when going second.
    This bit I disagree with though. HBM (and resource destruction in general) is ok at best going second. It's very powerful going first.

    Going first, you get to set up on turns 2 and 3 (and even 4) and then you can play your resource destruction on turns 4 or 5 to prevent your opponent from going to 5 resources.

    Going second, you must play resource destruction on turn 3 or 4 to delay your opponent's 5cc plays. You have one less turn to impact the board and this alone can cost you the game if your opponent has a good start.

    My experience with resource denial decks is that they're more prone to FTA than other decks.

    It is a comprehensive article although you should rename it something like Drawing Power - A Brief Analysis of Card Draw. At least readers know what to expect when seeing the title.

    @fou
    regarding HBM, I guess it could go either way whether or not the player has FTA, I just see it better when going second because ideally you would not have to skip a turn to resource not like if u have FTA where u would have to withhold resourcing for one turn in order to get HBM's full potential.

    @crazy don
    I do agree i need a better title in order to grab more reads. Draw! Draw! Draw! Sounds like a rant. I will try to think of a title or maybe use your suggestion. Thanks

    Excellent article.

    It occurred to me that some of the Heroes have a type of pseudo-draw, as well, like Gravebone's raising the dead, the Warriors' Reserved Weapon, etc.
