Thanks for the info - does not look very spectacular, though. I really hope the expansion gets more player interaction into the game

Right now it just seemed like a really run of the mill deckbuilder to me. The novelty of the card crafting was not quite enough to get me interested. Tyrants of the Underdark does a lot more to rejuvenate my interest in that genre of games. Been playing it pretty much non-stop. I might change my mind if the expansion does something neat.

But I am much more interested in the next card crafting game coming down the pipeline from AEG. I am not much into "buy cards so you get a deck that is an even better engine at buying cards" model. I want the card building to actually serve a purpose.

I'm guessing you haven't played the game, then, because it's not that. Someone could play like that, sure, but they'd likely lose.

Based on symbols alone, this looks interesting. Exactly what I'm looking for: more of the same, more diversity, more risk yielding more reward, encouraging better thought-out card crafting.

I just hope it's more inspired than the expansion's name

Now, will the game be long enough that you can craft a card with three decay symbols but which only counts for one thanks to the 3-cost advancement from the base game? 'cuz we never actually got to use that one

Also having abilities in other phases like the Discard power pictured could be interesting.

I was having trouble figuring out what it does and this could be so powerful in the right card!
