All credit to Jusshako and PescadoJM for their ideas on the counter card concept and successful thread.



I wanted to try something a little different and thought it might be easiest to start a new thread rather than hijack Jusshako’s to do it.

GENERAL RULES
1) Know how to post a pic (instructions at bottom of this post), do not post without a pic
2) Read the post before you and play a card that will defeat it if played NEXT. (ie. surging)
3) You must follow the unique rule at the top of the page you are on
4) If you are the first post on a new page, you may change the unique rule ensuring a card pool of at least 100 cards.
5) If the unique rule has not been changed, then the previous pages’ rule applies
6) Copy the unique rule in your own post
7) You may use Assault + structures but not commanders or action (the card that survives, wins)
8) Abilities with 50% activation will activate 100% unless unique rule states otherwise
9) The card you post must be able to be countered by a single card in the unique rule, or
10) If a dead end is accidentally reached, declare a new unique rule and post a new card.
11) Cards may not appear twice on the same page unless there is no other possible counter.
12) Make stupid whimsical comment about your card choice :P
13) Unique rules may be re-used on separate pages. That is the first poster’s (per page) choice.
14) Once a card has been posted below yours, do not edit your post as it causes confusion. Even if your card was proven to not be a winning counter.
15) Things can get confusing and complicated at times, try not to squabble, but find a way to get the game back on track instead.


Examples/Ideas for unique rules

- No legendary/unique cards allowed
- No cards with a cooldown of 4 allowed
- Bloodthirsty and Xeno cards only
- Gold pack cards only
- Must counter from a different card set
- Everyone has Daria as commander, card may not have weaken ability


How to post pic
1) Search for card on Google images
2) Click on the card’s thumbnail (it will take you to another page, otherwise code is often jibberish)
3) Right click the card (it should be a window in front of the page)
4) Choose “copy image url”
5) Paste url in your post with “!” on either side

example:
!http://images.wikia.com/warmetal/images/f/fc/TOrbo.jpg!

If your code looks like the one below, then you have done it wrong (most likely step 2)
!http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTveLuOOdJdqvesAP9xLSoOccVBNfu9pvShXlnZ0SYOLHMQve8D!



HINT
When deciding on cards, this is the best place to filter cards so that you fit in with unique rules. Also if you right click on the cards and say “open in new tab,” you can then right click on the card and save either “image URL” or “image location” etc to put between the “!”

Raid rewards only list can be found here.

If by this you mean the fictional cards from this idea then no.
Edit: Although, I think that could be a fun idea too!
