PussinBoots: And at the same time, they gave people energy based on their level after people complained about too low energy, ignoring the fact that shop items are cheaper and energy regains faster. So now we have more energy but slower regain.
Blackangel: If you can't do anything in the first round (even draw pillars) there's something wrong in your deck. YOu're not supposed to be able to play other cards in the first turn (unless you have some 0 cost ones or upped pillars/pends give you enough quanta to play some card).
Nutmeg: The point of the game is that it's very short. The description even says that "computer games are getting too hard these days". If you want to play some longer game, try playing one of those avegrade 600+ hours of grinding instead.
