I want the players to create these reward cards – that’s why I’m even here. That’s why I didn’t just make the rewards myself and give the community a middle finger. However, it is frustrating when original, never-been-done ideas are voted out in favor of big numbers and summon.

Partly why I’m irritated, aside from getting beaten out by the other cards…though I shouldn’t be one to talk: I used Summon on one of my cards.

Anyway: Amavit #1, with the Emulate/Mimic and Toxicyst #1 with Cleanse BT
Amavit – I really want to see more combinations of Mimic/Emulate ingame
Toxicyst – Someone already explained it earlier-serious lack of Cleansing BT.

Well, now I’m just depressed – my cards never seem to make the cut…Oh well.
I’d resubmit Discovery with a +1 to the Heal and drop delay to 3 (modding health as appropriate), but…/shrug/

Anyway, Corpse and STOVL get my vote on this page.

I would suggest getting rid of Stun and adding flying.
Swipe for flurry/ Poison 3 for flurry.
It looks angry so i think flurry would suit it.

Problem is, Raito pointed out earlier that such a skillset would only turn this card into a more durable Mawcor. Case:

Only things I see in common are their 3 CD, 4 Attack, and Flurry 2. However mine’s Flying skill and Poison 3 on Attacked with higher Health on top of being its Unique, they’re completely different. Flying skill makes the enemy Assault units without AA skill harder to hit and if they do hit, only backlash they’ll get is Poison 3, which cannot be Protected against Poison skill, since it’s different from Counter 3, which can be Protected against.


If you still wants some changes, I could lower its Attack to 3, increase its Health to 13 (might require to change its 3 CD to 4 CD), and swap out Flying skill with Stun skill?


Counter 3 is roughly equal to Poison 3 on Attacked.


Same exact offensive abilities.


More health snd Flying are not enough to make it decent. If Mawcor can’t cut it, this guy can’t either. Further, with the release of Last Resort, your Twin Hellwing is looking rather redundant.

Now that I think about it, I see where you’re coming from with the “grounded ‘flyers’” issue, but at this point, there’s little room to maneuver for the cards.

Eh, Shi, may I present the original Hell Wing:
No disrespect meant, but I don’t think you have the right to call blasphemy in this case…assuming Flame was making a tribute card.

Also, two more things:

1) If Shieru could toss in a Xeno variant of Hope Mason, then why not the Imperials?
(Not sure if I suggested this kind of card before…Hmm……):

2) Here I go, throwing my card into the Legion 4 race:
Why not try bringing back the Heavy Infantry? I know the card itself is useless, but…

Can you pls try research center → research center/mortar bunker* → dragonov and the buffed stats (4/3/2 flurry 1, fear, blitz) or alternate stats with valor instead of flurry (3/1/2 valor 3, fear, blitz)

Er, that level of Valor is just plain worse when combined with Rally…Even using only the basic Mortar Bunker, there goes Emanuel and every other 8HP comm from the meta…though that’s assuming the opponent doesn’t kill the Dragonov or stall it with CW…

Aside from that, while I have never heard Maharid’s point being made by the Devs, I can see where they’re coming from. Noskk, only the Valor one would pass muster if we use the skillset restriction…and even then, I’m doubtful about the strength of Dragonov.

I hope it’s not too late for card summit.

Can be made into 1CD if too strong.


Legendary Commander

Ok, I’m done being nice…
I’m going to give as objective an analysis as I can, aside from the use of Orbo (who shall forever remain pathetic due to the powercreep).

@monster: I’m not the judge for these cards, but I say no: there’s no non-Wall structure with those kinds of stats, and the closest Structures that could compete in the speed department do NOT have the ability to Summon a 0-DROP unit, much less have THREE Activation skills – even faction-specific ones.

@rero: NO, just no: a potential 4/7/0 that CANNOT be targeted by Weaken? There’s no Assault with those stats – even 1-drop isn’t enough for a nerf.
Same goes for the Commander, even if we disregard the fact that a REGULAR Summon Commander has never been released to the players. Besides, even disregarding Siphon, do you really want to keep getting hit by a flanking 0-drop Assault rallied like crazy from everything else in the deck?

Tried making a revised version of Discovery (Reward Card), but Card Creator’s not uploading right now (it could be the location; I’m not sure right now…):

……
Card Art: I pulled the artwork of Poseidon Aqualius from TU, since I made this as a tribute to the Poseidon card.
Discovery: Legendary Imperial, 4/15/4
Heal All 2
Summon Silent Surveyor
AntiAir 5

OR

Discovery: Legendary Imperial, 3/15/4
Summon Hornet Drones (card ID 89)
Siege 5
AntiAir 5

Note: I fail to see how 4/12/3 is a buff…though then again, it does seem ridiculous for a 3-drop card to have such high health.

…………

Card Art: I was thinking of the following card in terms of one of my old gags in Kong chat – me whipping out the controls to an “Orbital Cannon” network. Of course, in-game, the card itself is rendered useless with even a Protect All 1, but the practical side of me thought that a whole network of such satellites would be even more effective. Thus, I personally envisioned the artwork for this one to contain a number of satellites…but oh well.

Hammerhead Network: Unique Imperial, -/6/4
Refresh
Strike/Siege All 2 (separate skills, but with the same modifiers)

OR

Hammerhead Network: Unique Imperial, -/8/4
Refresh
Strike/Siege All 1 (separate skills, but with the same modifiers)

……
[Reserved space – may make more Reward cards…more likely though, I’ll be trying to balance my Reward ideas.]

EDIT 1:
@Raito: I would have used the OTHER Hornet Drones (card ID 997), but there was an issue about being able to summon TWO fast units every turn according to the discussion for the Player’s Pack cards, so I went with the next best that I could use.

EDIT 2: Cards incoming!
with
Yes, [Siege 2] seems pathetic, but the only other option I could think of would have been to summon a Hornet Drone.

– Health may be reverted to 5 if it proves too much in sims.

Since the picture above is already included in the Player’s Pack, I had to make some change to its picture, name, and it’s skill.

If all of the applicable cards are to go through for xeno, they will have a NASTY quickroll meta.

4 CD = 2 cards
3 CD = 2 cards
2 CD = 3 cards

So, 4 slow cards and 3 fast cards? 1 more fast xeno card wouldn’t hurt, wouldn’t it?

I never said it would hurt and I never said it was a bad thing. Nefarious Brute and Gemini from the player pack are two very nice little cards, two of each ended up in a strong, ordered mono-xeno quickroll esok deck with Abzu, Mass Hysteria and 4 Stormbringers (my card on the sheet). Abzu is a rainbow Imperial legendary, I was thinking from this strong quickroll deck that xeno are going to have some murderous quickroll with the player pack if some of these new cards make it in. That’s a good thing!

@hektikbeatz: If you can’t see why your action card powercreeps DfA*, compare the skillsets of the two. If you still can’t see it, I’ll spell it out for you:
Death from Above*, Strike All 2; Jam All – Damages every opposing Assault if there’s no Protect up, with potential to Jam ’em. STILL a sight in PvP from time to time, as far as I can tell, strictly because “Jam All” is ALWAYS a welcome sight for the player…and some extra damage never hurts.
Your action, Enfeeble All 2; Strike All 1 – Technically, this powercreeps BOTH EMP and DfA*, because aside from a guaranteed Strike All 3 if Evade and damage reduction is disregarded, you then have your Assaults/Structures now causing even more damage to the Assaults

@FlameHaze – That Saboteur just worries me: Even discounting United Front, a potential 5/7/2 seems a bit too fast for my tastes. Thank the gods you made it a Unique…which reminds me…

Something tells me this is going to need some modification before it would be considered…

No. I feel like going to war right here.

Unless the mods want to smother any voice that doesn’t agree with putting raito in charge of anything.

Cuz my first question is, who the fuck put raito in charge of anything? It sure as fuck wasn’t one of his alts pretending to be a girl, unless I missed that.

No disrespect meant, but Raito’s apology DID have a point – Lichtatem contributed NAUGHT but a complaint about the players posting cards. You want to go to war over this matter, then show that Lich actually contributed something to this thread. Otherwise, “SHUT UP AND SIT DOWN!”

No disrespect taken. I don’t even know lichtatem that well. His original point, which I’ll paraphrase as ‘so many newbs are taking control of this stuff, that’s kinda weird’ is a point that deserves discussing.
Now, if guys like Varamond (just an example -cuz we for sure aren’t friends but I do respect his Tyrant-playing abilities) come in and say, card X is bad cuz Y, then sure.
What is the truth is that Lichtatem and many others did contribute alot (ALOT) to tyrant and its community. For some scrubnub to come in and say STFU, well, to me, that’s taking things to far.
On basis of reputation, tyrant history and reading cabal logs, I would feel alot better if SeanD, commonkey, ralkkdillon, Novellean or others would take control of this than some guy who couldn’t get an Apollo to save his life but does feel the need to talk down to reputable members of this community.

But hey, that’s just me. Next time you are in the hospital and need an operation, give me a call. I’d love to take a whack at it. (ps I hate all humans, I’m sure that’s not a problem)

@Sighaknight – Way to avoid the question. Reread the italicized portions, then honestly tell me if that is actually answering the challenge. If not, ’tis unfortunate that Lichtatem has to do the justifying/contributing himself.

@Lichtatem – My admittedly harsh response still stands regardless. Your first post did provide a reasonable complaint, but that was it: no critique on cards, no new suggestions, nothing to directly add to the actual topic of the thread…and you didn’t think to take the argument to a different thread? However, now that you’ve actually gone and given critique on some of the cards, I’m going to shut up on this matter and get back to work on suggestions.

Another possible Reward idea:

I’ve got NO idea where to actually put Katana now in terms of Faction alignment. Yes, storyline-wise, she was initially an Imperial (before getting into trouble on the first visit to Kor) and later work with Soverign Imperial Daedalus, but for part of the storyline, she’s fighting alongside Raider guard Yurich and Righteous soldier Attalia, so.
Also, I’m guessing she’s going to need a nerf somewhere before long…

This should be the job of players who actually know what kind of decks people use, and not some randoms who like playing around with a card editor.

Even though I’m above Level 100, I resent this comment because I happen to be one of those who doesn’t participate in the competitive meta.
So you suggest that only those that have competed in Standard Tournaments regularly should be allowed to contribute to this thread? Newsflash for you: I forsee that the only contributions then would be cards that continue to perpetuate a given meta or another – ABSOLUTELY NO creativity then.

Originally posted by Maharid:

The replace of card 13 was so horrible that the original got restored… and is not that bad.

As is, Card13 is just Comm Center with the artwork for Raider Wall and modified stats all over. If by “horrible” you actually meant the replacement choice turned out to be OP, I would be able to understand…otherwise, I fail to see how a replacement can get any worse than a thinly-veiled SECOND instance of a card already in-game.

May I please know who was the idiot that decided that this:

did not equal this:
and thus still qualified to be part of the Player Pack? I have an idea for a Orbital Cannon tribute that I want to fire on ’em.

Off of that…
Card6 reminded me of Engulfing Chasm with its original setup, though instead of Enfeebling the opposing Assaults, it would strengthen any Wallstall deck against single-targeting Siege decks (for an example of what I’m trying to talk about, check the skillset of Poseidon). The modified version still has that EC feel as far as I’m concerned, but then again, it’s serving a different purpose.

I’m not part of the judging committee, so don’t assume my opinion would be the majority rule. However, given the information as is, it might very well be the majority ruling.

@ezrajed – NO. Even with the VERY fragile health, Ballistic Missile EASILY qualifies for Legendary…and not only do you intend for it to be RARE, you also have it as the summon of a 2-delay Legendary? Closest cards with that much effective Strike power alone would be Hijacker* and Blood Wraith, both of which are Legendary AND have a condition attached to the Strike. As is, I’d reckon that it’s worse than my original version of a Poseidon tribute card…and that is saying something considering that at the time I was pretty much advocating for a Legendary that had the ability to summon TWO Assaults/turn if it actives.
As for your other missile idea…Uranium Tipped Warhead isn’t that bad. Not meta-shaking, but to an extent comparable to Sabre.

@Cherna – I thought it was already made clear in the OP, but apparently I’ll need to quote:

Please do not include Raid-only skills, as we do not know if Synapse will allow that. Also, no weird skill combinations like Summoning an Action.

As “Bombing Run” is presented as an Action here, that would put this version of your suggestion on the chopping block, if not outright thrown in the trash.

lol, i wish being a forum mod granted me magical abilities of being a better player and greater knowledge of tyrant cards and mechanics or being a god of tyrant.

tbh, I’ll have to ask PR/sean about the card. It’s just my opinion that the card design is really apt and cool. My guess is that a second lvl HD would be a bit crazy in terms of flanking ability. A 1st level HD would be fine depending on the abilities of the legendary. Tiamat is also a fairly weak card in the current meta.

To answer regarding the Legendary…well, I’ll just quote my post again. Please disregard the Hornet Drones* to the side – it was part of my original idea to have that be the target summon…but time to think about it has made me reconsider:

Yes, this is supposed to be my tribute card to Poseidon.

…Ok, this just begs for me to ask:
Why is the skill “Summon Hornet Drones” (even the basic one) seen as “too much” to even be allowed on a 4-delay Legendary where this (suggested) Rare passes a forum moderator’s muster when it has “Summon Tiamat”?
Before you start comparing, do remember, Tiamat is as fast as Hornet Drones, if weaker in Attack and (relative to Hornet*) more fragile.

EDIT: Question was more directed at LDV’s approval of Tiamat summoning – I had already acknowledged the flaw of Summon Hornet Drones* in an earlier post.

On a separate note, I also have an idea for a tribute to Orbital Cannon – will post once structure thread comes up. Steal and I will maim you.

Omega, relax. You’re not stealing. You’re being inspired. A small group of us discussed Discovery. We think that the Summoning of Hornet Drones may be too much. It is summoning two fast units even turn, that adds a shit-ton of Heal All to any deck.

as for Stormbreaker, it’s difficult to say how powerful it will be. I can say that Berserk and Swipe need to be weakened. Berserk 1 or Berserk X on Kill. Or, hey, Berserk X on Attacked.

As they are, they wouldn’t likely make it into the pack – in my opinion. But, I am only one voice, and I’m not an authority figure, don’t treat me like one.

Yeah, Summoning Hornet Drones 2.0 is definitely a flaw with my Poseidon tribute card earlier – which was why I also suggested that just summoning basic Hornets could work. I just wanted to justify having the planes in the Poseidon artwork, but I didn’t want to sacrifice the original Poseidon’s Heal in the process…/shrug/ I don’t know what else to do about that one at the moment. Maybe someone else could come up with a different idea about a Flying unit to Summon?
Regarding Stormbreaker…Considering that Judgement already has this combo, I thought it would be fine. Maybe shift to Berserk 2 on Kill?

Regardless, I’ll be heading back to the drawing board for some more ideas.
