I have nothing to add more than what you have said yourself. Well written. By the way, you made a typo, reread the first sentence, you'll find it two words after the comma.


In Topic: Lair of Darkness Support: Fortress of Dark Illusions

Wow, where did you get that artwork? Pretty cool looking card. I don't really like facing lair decks. It's not that the card is op, it's just that the mechanic of the card feels wrong and contrary to the spirit of good fun, so I can only be biased when I see lair support. But if I put my objective glasses on for a second, I can see a well written effect, however I fail to see the connection between the artwork, the name and the card's effects; when I first saw the name and then the artwork, I expected a retrain or an upgrade.

I'm not sure I understand the card's intended impact. Care to elaborate more?


In Topic: [Ritual & Spell] Gravekeeper's Excommunicator /-Passover (Sure to Give a Shiver Up Your Spine)

10 March 2019 - 12:30 PM

Gravekeepers is one of my favourite archetypes, so well written support for it is always appreciated. The images chosen look cool and appropriate. However, while I like rituals as well, you have to recognize that they run contrary to today's meta and that playing rituals will be in the way of the usual gravekeeper strategies rather than supporting it.

 

The problem here is that rituals cost a lot of resources to be Summoned and you need specific resources in your hand to summon them, so it will force you to build your entire deck around that ritual. Otherwise, drawing either card when you have neither the other card nor the monsters to tribute to summon it will result in a dead draw.

 

A change in play style wouldn't have been much of an issue normally. But the monster itself doesn't contributing anything as a boss monster. It doesn't impact the field in a meaningful way, it's just a beat stick. It would have been okay to be a 2500 beatstick in any other scenarios, but since this is a ritual cards and a lot of the pre existing ritual support plays in the graveyard, you will have a hard time to summon this thing, let alone a second one, since afterwards nothing can go the gy except gravekeepers.

 

So, in the end, you have with a ritual which fits neither in a gravekeeper deck nor a dedicated ritual deck. However, I can't stress enough how I like the cards visual appearance, theme and writing.
