Proposal: Getting the Good Cards

became unpopular 2 to 5. Failed by Derrick

Add to the list of non-token cards:

Duplicate (1) [Labor] No Constraint > Choose any card, known as the original, and create a new card known as the duplicate. The duplicate’s fields are the same as the original’s, except for the name. If there is no number at the end of the original’s name, the name of the duplicate is “X-2”, where X is the original’s name. If there is a number at the end of the card, the name of the the duplicate is then name of the original with the last number in its name changed to the lowest integer greater than 1 that will result in a unique card name. Place the duplicate in your hand./ No effect

Place duplicate in the historian’s hand and play it a number of times equal to the number of unidle wizards with the card named “Duplicate as the target. Place one of the cards created this way in each wizard’s hand.


This is to allow players to pick their favorite cards, and the allow folks to alter the deck towards useful cards.

Surely, this will result in some OP combos, but I don’t mind :)

against A bit of deckbuilding and deck thinning isn’t a bad idea, but cramming it onto a card that you have to be lucky to draw in the first place seems like it won’t amount to much.

Every player gets a copy, so even after the initial plays there will be lots of copies of the card to draw. for

Oh, right, that’s what that final clause is doing. Which is a clever bit of photocopying trickery, but I’m not sure it’ll work - the Historian can’t play the card named “Duplicate” more than once, can they? It’ll leave their hand when it’s played (and be replaced with “Duplicate-2”?).

And even if that worked, they’d also have to pay the Thaum cost for each spell if they wanted the Up effect, once Exothaumic Reactions had enacted.

against I’m interested in this, but it seems better suited as a rule about a one-off per-Wizard power than a card.

against better as a rule
