Jack most certainly has a brain though, and always has. He may be emotionally damaged in ways, but he's sharp as a pin in ways other's just don't always understand. Sizemore also isn't cowardly persay, he just doesn't want to kill. He was more than prepared to face Jetstone and die, it was DOING killing that upset him.
But they had those things allllll along.
Also am I the only one who has this odd image of Olive dropping the hippie as she grows out of the 60s and becoming a yuppie on wallstreet all corporate ponytail chopped off? Anyone?
Edit: As for the whole natural counters thing, I would imagine turnamancy would be the best counter to Uncroaked, aside from any kind of healing if that works here on uncroaked. Causing those zombies to skip their turn or get stalled, means the entire stack loses strength for the eventual engagement.
Also I don't think there would ever be a natural counter to decryption unless it was another tool of the titans. I mean if one mancy could counter an entire army without upkeep cost that can feed its own ranks? That would have come up before. Frag. The. Mage.
