    Lightbulb Santa Bomb

    So, you know when you go first, and you drop the Spark or Snake? Opponent goes and sacs, but has nothing to play t1. Your t2 you play Bad Santa. You go from 4 cards in hand (counting the Santa) to 6 in hand, and will be getting your next draw. Your opponent, on the other hand, goes from 6 cards to 7 in hand, and misses his next draw. The net result is that you gain three cards, and your oppoent gains 1. You go from 4 to 7, he goes from 6 to 7. - This is the single best scenario for a t2 Santa, as it yields you the best card advantage possible for Bad Santa, as a card. (Unless someone can possibly illustrate a time when Santa gives a higher net card advantage)

    That's a Santa Bomb. And, I just coined it. If you don't like the term, don't use it. But, when I am talking about playing a "t2 Santa Bomb", now everyone will know what I'm talking about without me having to explain the above scenario. Basically it means any time you get max power out of Santa and opponent gains nothing from it. Yeah, a Santa Bomb.

    I think the net result is 2 cards against 0.

    You buy 3 cards, but you spend one to do it and your opponent would end up buying the card in the next turn anyway. But that is only another point of view.

    I always feel a little guilty playing Bad Santa turn 2. I mean, first turn advantage and all, this really seals it. Not that I would let a little guilt get in the way of playing it anyway.

    So essentially, the Bad Santa has its full effect on you, and no effect on your poor opponent. That is, the Santa Bomb reads simply: You draw three cards.
