And So It Begins in your opening hand, you could always have used Rapid

T4 play CC, build to 10 ('cause you are at 8 when you use the last CC...).
You now have 10 total influence, 7 unspent influence, 2 guys in your inner

with, say, a Crusade deck full of characters or something. But then it also
isn't really much more efficient than the old G'Kar/Build
