A man with an eyepatch and a devilish grin strides up to you.
Shady Man:"Hey there, stranger. Interested in advancing science? I can make you stronger than any training or blessing. You're gonna need it if you're one of those heroes with a death wish."
Shady Man:"Whad'ya say?"
The man hands over a dangerous looking syringe filled with a glowing liquid before skulking off into a shadowy alleyway.
Become Test Subject
The man injects you with three unknown substances and pulls out a notepad. As you begin to feel light-headed, he starts to frantically write down notes.
Losing track of time completely, by the time you regain your senses, the shady character has disappeared.
You quaff the mysterious substance. Immediately, you are invigorated and feel your muscle fibers twitch.
If your deck is about losing HP with cards (particularly Ironclad'sRupture deck) or if you are not afraid to pay your HP for more damage (for instance, if your deck can generate a lot of Block to prevent incoming damage, or if you have a steady source of Intangible), consider choosing [Test J.A.X] to obtain J.A.X., since it is a fairly powerful source of Strength that can be used repeatedly.
Mutagenic Strength from [Ingest Mutagens] gives you a heavy buff at the start of combat. Consider choosing this option if:
You can reliably draw multi-hit attack, or multiple cheap attacks, on the first turn
If you rely on setting up on the first turn without much attacking, consider avoiding [Ingest Mutagens] as Mutagenic Strength would become fairly useless.
Transforming cards is best when you have Strikes or other bad cards you would like to remove.
Keep in mind that transforming a Curse will result in another Curse.
This event was named "J.A.X. Dealer", and has the internal name of "Drug Dealer". However, its name was changed to "Augmenter" as its effect expand beyond giving J.A.X., and probably to distance itself from the negative connotation (and possibly censorship) of the word "Dealer".
