Proposal: a psudodeck

Passes 7-0. Enacted by Brendan.

Adminned at 27 Jun 2018 21:35:35 UTC

Prepend the following text to the rule “Deck”

Any reference in the ruleset or in any of the fields of a card to a deck, such as “the deck”, where it is certain it is not referencing this rule is to be interpreted instead to be “the set of cards in this rule which are not in the Hand of any Wizard”. Any reference in the ruleset or in any of the fields of a card similar to “the deck is empty” or “an empty deck” is to be interpreted instead as “the deck being equal to the empty set”.

In the rule “Drawing” remove all text between parenthesis and then remove parenthesis.
In “Drawing” change “Randomly choose one card” to

Randomly choose one card in the deck

Replace “or their are no more cards in the deck which are not part of any Wizard’s hand.” with

or the deck empty.

since we already have a rule that references a deck as if it were a regular deck of cards, I’ll just define what “deck” means for the scope of this dynasty and similar to how it was already being used in that rule.
also I just now noticed the wrong “their” in that rule.

Although this does mean that Attached cards are counted as being in the deck.

This puts attached cards in the deck.

There are no attachable cards, though, yet, and I think only one in the queue (“Bridge Troll”).

True, but you haven’t seen the write-ups on my computer I’m posting in the next few hours!

I suppose I can retroactively stick a fix in those proposals.

Are attached cards not supposed to be in the deck? I thought that “Each community has a number of Attached Cards, which are either in an up state or a down state.” was there to allow attach cards to be played on communities, not to have separate lists of cards.

The original idea was that attached cards stick to the community until they are unattached.

I suppose both directions are valid, and neither will break the game. The “Both locations” rule would be cumbersome in a physical card game, but this is not a physical card game.

If attached cards are in the deck, they become more powerful, because they may cycle faster than they are removed, and effect multiple cards.

If attached cards are not in the deck, they are not as powerful, and we’ll need a correspondingly larger deck.

I’m resolving this in a different proposal.
