Design Theory / Card idea: The Gift
« on: December 21, 2010, 07:39:44 PM »
The Nightmare card triggered an idea (my apologies if this has already been thunk). What if there was a card called, "The Gift" that would give your opponent any creature, weapon or shield you have on the table? I can think of several scenarios in which this would be beneficial:

-Opponent Anti-Matters your dragon. Solution? "Gift" it to him!
-Creature plagued by Aflatoxin? "Gift" it away!
-Opponent Lobotomizer or Owl's Eye giving you fits? "Gift" away your Trident! (Opponent has no earth quanta)
-Tired of the opponent's Turtle Shield slowing you down? "Gift" your Phase Shield just before it expires!

There are literally hundreds of scenarios in which a Gift could be useful. Now, some may say that Steal or Deflag. would be more useful and for the most part I agree. This means Gift should be in an element which is unlikely to use those - perhaps Light or (most likely) Aether? I'm not exactly sure what the cost would be. It actually could be the cost of the item gifted, with the upgraded version making the gift cost N-1. It could go in Darkness since it is a shifty kind of card, but with that element already having Steal I see it as redundant and unbalancing.

Thanks for the tips. I have been playing against AI3 for the past month or so and made great strides. I guess I'm just getting a case of whiplash against these new decks - they are much more sophisticated and I will just have to adjust. I wanted to get a sense as to what the rest of the community felt.

Is anyone else having real trouble against the new AI3 decks? I don't mean to whinge but the difficulty has ramped up considerably. I am not about to go back to AI2, and I know it's not that my deck is weak against particular elements. Nearly ALL of the new AI3 decks are particularly difficult to beat and when I do win I typically have only 25% of my life. I am pretty adaptable when it comes to updating my strategy but as it stands it is very clear that AI3 has really become hard to beat.
