There have been some complaints about the locals, but it must be said - some of the effects are hilarious.
Homeworld for example was almost a one turn win for me... Constant playing of 2 power minions that in turn spawned more 2 power minions. Of course, it gave me a discard pile almost entirely made of locals...
I did the same thing, except I was zombies too and reclaimed all my locals back with the one action card!
