Okay, let's say you crack your packs, and you only see about 3 or 4 solidly playable Gearsmith cards, one of them being a H07 P3PP3R. Is this one of those times where it is worth throwing in some starting elitism just to take advantage of the pepper, or just let it slide? I often find myself being unreasonably influenced by exploitable cards, and was wondering what people's thoughts on the matter are.
I guess the actual question, without asking in an example, would be, "Is splashing a pack-weak color worth it for a semi-longshot game-winning bomb?"
**Note: The example above was the situation I was in at Winter Sealed, but I did have two Hamsters to couple with the P3PP3R.**
