He's less interesting than he should be. The effect (shutting down all Taoist powers) is very strong, something that you can't allow for more than a turn or two without feeling very bad effects. So he must be killed. However, he's easy to kill (2 black), and offers a nice reward (Qi or YY) with no drawback, unlike Black Widow, another 2-black ghost with a nasty effect (even harder to kill due to the effect), but who Curses upon exorcism.

Just noodling around with this, but I think he would have been better if the effect wasn't quite so strong (say, only shuts down the board he's on; since he moves around, it would be a dynamic effect), and to offset that bump up his strength to 3. That would create some interesting tradeoffs and choices about how to handle him. Or leave him at 2 and give him a Curse on exit, and have him shut down the board opposite him (or whatever, just not quite so strong).

As he is, he's just not interesting: kill him ASAP and get your YY.

His resistance could be X Black, where X is the total number of ghosts of his current board's color in play.
