City of Gugs

All good points. There is no question that Dutch Courage is the more powerful card. The best explanation I can think of, is that Yog-Sothoth has many more Toughness characters than the Syndicate, making a card that grants Gugs an additional Toughness that much stronger, especially since Gugs tend to have printed Toughness to begin with. They also have quite a few good reactions that trigger when wounded.
I could see this making it into a casual deck. It's by no means an upper-tier card, but I wouldn't necessarily say it smacks of poor design, either.
