Weaponised Tentacle - Multi-Trade Card
Weaponised Tentacle - 4
Arcanist Warlord Tactic
Cost - Pick a Player
That player reveals their hand, choose a non-arcanist non-resource card from it, that player discards that card. If a cardwas discarded this way, you may pick a Character, if you do, Weaponised Tentacle inflicts X damage to that Character, where X is equal to the numeric cost of the discarded card.
Idea of this card is a multi-trade card, of the Warlords using an Arcanist tentacle as a violent projectile, perhaps firing the tentacle out of a bazooka or RPG. Or perhaps even better, using the manga illustration effect of straight lines to give the effect that the Tentacle is flying at 1,000 mph towards the intended target!
The card has the Arcanist discard selection mechanic mixed with the Warlord's direct damage capacity!
Is that interesting good or interesting so bad? :-) :-)
If we're firing a tentacle, shouldn't the discarded card be Arcanist instead of not be Arcanist? Maybe double the damage if the discarded card was Arcanist.
I gotta say, I'm already against anything that mixes trades, because that goes down a dark path.
You mean like in Magic?
Well, we have ONE mixed card. Unscruplus of Victory, and yeah, I think, such cards could make the game down.
But the mechanic himself of the tactic I think is good.
So I would say, really WAIT with such multiple-colours. Better make a new "Ability" (Like FlipUp or Recur)
