    Ignithas reacted to Asako Michi in Restricted List   
    I sincerely doubt that for a few reasons. As others have stated, Scorpion has other options to work around this with. And Phoenix wasn't exactly untouched by this, having Against the Waves on the list pretty much means aggressive shugenja decks can't use any of the other restricted cards, and there are few situations where Charge! is going to beat out other cards on that list, which means our big firebird loses a lot of play because it's rare anyone wants to pay that much fate for it.

    You can't play Policy Debate and Fury in the same deck.
    Scorpion can't currently play Backhanded Compliment.
    The list absolutely hits Scorpion harder than any other clan...which is how it should be, as they're too far ahead of the pack without it. It probably doesn't stop them still being the clan to beat, but it definitely tips a number of match-ups much closer to the other side.

    The point of the restricted list is to defuse problematic combos, not hit all clans equally (unless they have even distributed power combos, naturally).
     
    Nooooo! Singleton cards are a terrible idea and we need less, not more of them.

    Restricted List and their balancing process would be the two things I am interested in.

    This isn't necessary true. There is a lot of design space to give decks good MUs against control decks, despite cancels costing 0. Tadaka and the new Phoenix SH for example pretty much makes all Control decks favourable for Phoenix.
    While Control decks got a lot of tools in the first cycle and dominated the meta, Control lost some ground with the Phoenix pack. I personally think that disrupting tempo decks like Phoenix/Dragon and Dragon/Crab are either equal or better equipped to fight a diverse meta.
    The problem with that approach is that proactive cards don't have any risk attached to them (save Calling in Favors and Karada District), which will lead to frequent blow outs through cards that are undercosted (FGG, Spyglasses, Talisman of the Sun, Reprieve etc.). Especially Let Go would be pretty pathetic.
    While I'd like higher cost attachments to see play and hope that there will be cards that make playing higher cost attachments less of a risk (or a restricted list that would achieve that),  I don't see the causality to clan balance.

    I don't agree worth these costs,  especially when they also have the added cost of being hard to get into your deck (influence cost or of clan). 
    what would help I think is more ways to make attachments cheaper,  and more solidly protect voltron characters

    It's a poor philosophy unless the opportunity cost of adding answers isn't cutting OP cards in the first place. Scorp would still play CiF, Dragon might still play Let Go, but no one else is going to spend influence on a card to bring the board state back to parity instead of spending that influence on op cards that win the game. Miya mystic doesn't have that problem, exists in the dynasty and so competes with quite a bit less for its spot, and almost never gets played anyway. It's playable in phoenix now because it's another Shug and also Tadaka is so busted that you can afford to play underpowered answers to protect it.

    The designphilosophie of equal cost of threads and answers is that the quality of threads vary and if you can counter their op stuff and you get your OP stuff through you are at an advantage. Attachment hate is also playable if it costs more if you depend on a Card/strategy that gets Josef by a card (Miya Mystic for CTM in Tadaka).

    The pool is nowhere near the point that most Clans could do this without completely compromising their strategy.

    Kempy, what Ignithas said. There's a huge difference between getting a card to work correctly and fundamentally changing how a card works. Could you, for example, point out any examples having significant extra costs added to them, as that was the crux of the earlier post.

    I don't know that we actually have decks strong enough that can be autopiloted to win out.  There are a ton more decision points in the LCG than there ever were in the CCG.

    Come come now. Let's go full dragon - make it unnecessarily complicated and hard to use..
    Dragon Sword
    +2/+2
    If the sum of the printed costs of all characters on the board is even, attached character gains +1 MIL unless the attached character's printed cost is also even. If the sum of the printed costs of all characters on the board is odd, attached characters gains +1 POL unless the attached character's printed cost is also odd.
    If attached to a Champion: Action: Challenge an opposing character with equal or higher glory to your choice of a MIL or POL duel, ignoring honored or dishonored status. Dishonor the loser.
