Proposal: Drawing

Reached quorum 6 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 21 Jun 2018 14:05:14 UTC

Create a new rule called “Drawing” with this text:

If a Wizard is instructed by ruletext or a card’s affect to draw a card and they have less than 9 cards in their hand, they must randomly choose one card (which is not part of any Wizard’s hand) from the deck and add it to their hand.

If every card in the deck is in a Wizard’s hand, no Wizard may draw or Deal.

If the text

Wizards other than the Historian may not draw cards.

is not part of the ruleset, append to the rule “Drawing” this text:

Dealing is a communal weekly atomic action with the following parts:
*Create a randomly ordered list containing all Wizards who have less than 9 cards in their hand.
*Randomly choose one card (which is not part of any Wizard’s hand), add it to the hand of the first Wizard in the list, and remove that Wizard from the list.
*Repeat step two until either the list is empty or their are no more cards in the deck witch are not part of any Wizard’s hand.
Dealing shall always performed at the earliest legal time.

I’d actually prefer to make it so that everyone receives their cards at once. It removes the timing element of draws from the game and the grinding-like element of drawing a card.

well the point of that nobody can draw mechanic is that we can propose how drawing will work without the possibility of drawing any created cards.

This doesn’t seem to cover what happens when someone has 9 or more cards in hand and or if all of the cards in the deck are currently in some wizard’s hand (assuming the deck had duplicates.

As a note, the last section describing drawing probably won’t trigger.

@derrick, your right, but I just wanted to make sure an illegal game position could not occur on account of my rule.
