Why I would make a good War team member                                                             
I've grown to love this game and every single bit of it. I've tried several decks on the forum, and grown accustomed to them; they have taught me how to play.  I would like to join the war and make some new friends, learn about the game, and have some fun, which is what Elements is all about. ;D

I'm going with Solar Shield; it's a nice "new" card that seems worth investigating.
Crusader would've been my second choice, but it's quite obvious what it does and how to use it - for the most part.

About the Steam Machine post: no mention of Skittles (http://elementscommunity.org/forum/index.php/topic,12134.0.html)?  :o

Mind Flayer. Dirt cheap soft CC - of a sort.
I see Chrysaora & Steam Machine are really going at it. Looks like it's gonna be one of those two.

AI3 will bless a Deja Vu'd Deja Vu over a Dune Scorp..... which still has 0 attack.

At the moment, it's a nightmare of Dune Scorpion/Eternity/SoG Stalls.

That works from every point of view I can think of, but I highly doubt a deck like andrenastaves would bother including this. It's sorta slow and clunky in a way if that's the case, because Life/Aether isn't a very common combo other than frogtal anyways.

I think either increase the attack gain, or make it a pump-creature - +1 attack/ 5 :life.

If you think about it, the following are the 'healing' cards:
Feral Bond
Heal
Staves
*Luci
*:light Nymph
*Holy Light
*Drain Life
*Miracle
*SoG

With only ~3 cards to work with, it doesn't look promising for that ability - that said, andrenastaffs = +4 attack, and feral bond before its nerf would make this card pretty strong.

I'm not against the card's basis, but I think that something along the lines of a creature potentially gaining that much attack in one turn with only two cards - in reality, I know the quanta is an issue, but something with that kind of potential in a turn feels OP to me.

Well, with lying in mind, you could try something along the lines of a synergy with cards that will react to the opponent's cards, such as Mindgate. Maybe +1 attack every time a card owned by the opponent is stolen/mindgated/Precog'd/Cloaked/LS'd? It will open up a lot more potential combos, but it might do well to make this card either :darkness or :life if you do go with that. It'll take away the potential for high attack early in the game, but it, coupled with darkness' "Game Controlling" cards, it can be an interesting effect.

Side-note: I'm not one for RoL Hope decks either. After a month of playing them, I got really sick of them. What I'm trying to say is that just because Pinocchio isn't a rush card like :fire, late game it is really hard to balance. Just because the decks play two different styles - Rush & Stall - does not mean that it is not Broken. It just means that it isn't as useful if you're playing a Rush deck.

For example, take Chimera. Use it in early game, and it is near worthless. High cost, momentum, gravity pull, and a very low attack/HP, depending on the deck you're playing. Mid to Late game, it's a finisher. You get high damage and/or HP, so it acts as a meat shield or an EM creature with LS.

*facepalm*
You do realize that this card is broken with Rustler, right?

i.e. Rustler + 20 :light = +20 attack for Pinocchio & 40 :life

If you dropped this in a modded RoL Hope deck, you're almost guaranteed to win after you've set everything up - fractalling these, at the risk of a one turn delay due to fractal's ability, is a near instant win, with so much burst damage.

Where were you during  this topic (http://elementscommunity.org/forum/index.php/topic,20966.0.html).
Missed an =  :P
Seems interesting. I'd suggest jdmt's The Ultimate Speed EM Deck (http://elementscommunity.org/forum/index.php/topic,10563.0.html), with a whopping ~75% EM Rate in his games.

If I find any decks posted here that I have enough upped cards to play, I'll be sure to help whenever I can.

With Temporal Striker, I think it's pretty good:
Turn 1: 4 :time + 4 :life = 12 damage
Turn 2: 2 :time = 24 damage unupped/36 damage upped [time bubble, 3/5 turns]
Turn 3: 4 damage, out of time bubble [unupped]/1 turn of time bubble left [upped]

Mostly burst damage, but I think that 48 damage is quite worrisome in terms of balancing. It could make time/life quite dangerous.

*Note: Someone [I think willng3] posted in the game suggestions about a bug with sundial & acceleration. Apparently, sundial will treat all creatures' attack as 0 for one turn; this means that andrenaline will undergo 5 turns of attacking, which would mean an instant out for Temporal Striker. Just something to think about when balancing this card.
