I love the tongue in cheek humour that Crypto have shown so far in some of their card designs and think it would be awesome if they continued this, particularly with some 'in joke' cards that reference the kick-starter experience.

(For example 'the lamp' from the star citizen kick-starter)

I propose:

Tablet Support
Rare
Artifact
Handsize is increased to 8
*picture of a guy chiselling numbers on a clay tablet*

--Transforms to legendary when 1,000,000 players are reached--

Tablet Support
Legendary
Artifact
Skip draw step, draw cards until you have 7 at the beginning of every turn


Also a Raid Boss
Troll Raid Boss
Powers:
Every time a player plays a spell, put a 0/1 Troll into play, it cant defend
Troll can Pay2win by sacrificing 20 0/1 Trolls
All trolls have "opposing player may pay (x) convert to a meme and put under your control"

What do you think?
If done right it would certainly make me chuckle without breaking the realism too much..
Any other ideas?

If there were more stretch goals, maybe we'd see these.

Saphire x2

At the start of each turn, each player reveals 3 cards from the top of their deck. Each picks one card from their stack of 3 and passes it to the left. Repeat the process until cards are gone. Put all cards chosen into the choosing players' hand.


I do like this idea, though, even though it's not really funny:)

not a bad idea tho it may be impossible for you to play the cards you get this way

You'll very quickly hit hand size limits this way too. Maybe shuffle them into your deck. Then it would be really interesting when you start getting cards back that you passed over =)

I would rather not ruin the lore of the game with such cards. If there are subtle nods in the flavor text that is one thing, but they are crafting an engaging world and I would like to keep it that way.

I'm sure they could fit that pro player card or idea into the lore:)

As for it's potential effects, shuffling in sounds like a good idea, or as an enter the battlefield effect or something doing it once. Either way, if it was a constant, and the 'drafted' cards went into your deck, you could eventually draft their resources too. Could definitely be fun :)

I'm not too big on lore, but I agree in having as few deviations from the theme of the game as possible. The only real exception to this would be something like Kingdom of Loathing, where the entire point of the game is to be as detached from any one particular theme as possible.

There will be 4th wall breakers, I am sure of it. Somehow, someway, in this completely digital card game where ANY effect is possible, the Fourth Wall will be broken:) So long as it's classy, it's k.

Somewhere in there, Kyle has to trip Cory and leave play forever(Hey, he ran away at a faster speed than Cory, rewarding his temporary bravery with safety from the Bear)

Right! Totally forgot about Cory...How about:

Bear Fight

Cost: 2
Threshold: 1 wild
Chose 2 Troops. Flip a coin. The winner of the coin flip is exhausted. Destroy the losing troop. Put a Wild Bear (2/2 troop with crush) into play under your control.

Haha - i like it

Maybe the 'Bear Fight' will turn out to be our first look at a 2 player raid against a Bear Raid boss with Kyle and Cory 'fighting a bear' on Twitch livestream..

I can just see the announcement now - 'Kyle and Corey will fight a bear at 6pm on friday on Twitch' - they'd get so many people watching hoping for a real live bear lol
