Thread: Card Ideas from the KS experience

  1. #1

    Card Ideas from the KS experience

    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?

    Hahaha. +1 =P
    If there were more stretch goals, maybe we'd see these.

    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.
