In another thread, a poster was questioning the inability of Tactics to work as a one sphere deck for single player, that got me to thinking! There should be a modest boon for having all heroes of the same sphere, preferably something useful and thematic.

Here are some possibilities in respect to a single player bonus when their deck is composed of heroes from only one sphere ...

Leadership
Command and Control: Player can exhaust 1 hero to ready 2 non-unique allies. Limit of once per round.

Tactics
Confidence: During the Questing Phase, the player can ignore Threat from 1 enemy or location.

Spirit
Low Profile: During the Engagement Phase, the player's Threat is treated as 5 less.

Lore
Bring a Friend: During the Planning Phase, the cost of an ally is reduced by 1 (to a minimum of 1) for each copy of that same ally already in play.

Interesting idea. But it would make things more complicated and difficult to balance. I think it would be better, if they can deal with it via cards.
And - in case you missed it - they are already taking steps, to make mono-sphere a more viable option in the upcoming cycle.
