    One interesting point...

    The last two times it's happened to me, my rating has went up even though I saw the defeat screen and it looks like a defeat in my search history.

    This actually makes...

    My fault... I was catching up on posts since I've been gone a week. Responded above before I read the rest of the thread. :)

    I'm not an expert in logic systems, but neither is anyone else here, so I'll give my observations. :)

    The examples are about card advantage though. Card advantage isn't just I drew an extra card this turn, or I Nova your 3 guys.

    The Puwen example is about about portal taking you from -1...

    I think we're only separated by semantics here. The least "bad" tradeoff in the article is example #2 (countersliver), which is just a choice between roles. But there's a "bad" thing hidden in the...

    I also said we can contort the definition to try to make a fit; that was my attempt to. :) If you read the full quote, I was saying that in SE, you always want to be the "beatdown"; you play...

    You know, I thought about your exact example (mages or weapon heroes vs each other) when I wrote my original post. That's why I phrased the rules like this (emphasis added):

    Could you explain which part you disagree with? Note that his article isn't about deck design, it's about in-game decision making.



    I never said that; I just said that the beatdown player in...

    I remember reading that article when it came out... I miss The Dojo. :) All that talk about about Jackal Pups and Cursed Scrolls makes me nostalgic.

    Well, I started playing Magic when it first came out... I still remember discussing cards on Usenet, which is what passed for internet forums before the Web was invented. I've dabbled in various...

    Welcome to Shadow Era!

    There seem to be two types of priest decks... the "standard" aggro/jack-of-all trades variety, and the "resource denial" variety. Yours is a reasonable example of a...

    It's amusing to already see this kind of post, in a game so young. Balance threads will happen in any competitive game, and they hurt nothing.

    The problem is that new players have no basis to know what they'll be comfortable with. All they have to go on is the artwork and some equally meaningless stats.

    Unity is a client technology... it's the piece that runs in your browser, phone or tablet. They're using "something else" for the backend, so I'd be surprised if Unity was involved in the solution....

    I just posted my thoughts on this yesterday... Choosing your starting hero.

    I think Eldawen (the lady mage) is a good choice, for what it's worth.

    I suspect I'm not adding much to the discussion, but though I'd say the game works great on my HTC Flyer tablet.

    Not at all.

    The Raven comparisons seem a little stretched to me. They're different, in the same way a 7/6 creature has a different role to play than Behemoth. There are a lot of places where...
