    Technologically Useless Cards!

    Hi, guys!
    I have been playing this game for more than one year and really involved in it. One of reasons why I am addicted to this game is that SE does not have any junk cards, which refers to cards with definite weak ability or value compared to the same cost cards. Every card can find out its own special position in this game. However, over-half year has gone by since the DP version was released, several cards are totally useless.
    Here I only give two examples which I have found so far.

    1.Vozitian Orders: According to the SE card pool, the cards which have synergy with it are Sandra Trueblade, Lily Rosecult, Priest of the light, Twilight tribe herald, Layarian diplomat and Layarian seductress. Based on the situation, lily, priest of the light, seductress, and diplomat have much higher percentage of using. If we use the ability of VO to return those allies back to the hand, what gonna happen? u are just wasting ur resources, because those cards cannot support deserved abilities regardless of allies' feature. For example, if u return priest of the light to ur hand, u appears to use 3CC to exchange for 1 life restore and 1 shadow energy nerf to opponents. It is definitely un-price-reasonable. The same holds true for others. In addition, I do not count its own cost of resource and of card. The way to make it useful is to add some cards which are ability-like. In other words, those cards have "battlecry" abilities as well as ability cards but with somehow weak value of life and of attack as allies.

    2.Storm Coat: This one is designed to cooperate with Rain Delay and Cover of the Night. Given that I have Storm coat in the play, I cast RD or COTN to protect my allies so it seems pretty. However, compared to another board-control card -- Retreat, they have either equal or higher cost but weaker effects, because opponents' allies are still in the board. Definitely this design is really awkward.

    I absolutely hope SE can get better and better so I wish official design team can fix, redesign, or dispose them.

    Welcome to get any feedback from you guys. I know the analyzes of those cards are not agreed with everyone.
    Cheers!

    I give you wooden staff. Vozitian Orders is useable imo.

    Rain coat was probably created to counter Millstalker.

    I've never seen a mage user using Loest's Burden... is it because of its uselessness?

    You should watch more of AA1 Qazzaq's games. It's not a GREAT card, but it's definitely not a useless one, either.

    These cards you said are actually pretty good. Some of the best Lance decks are based on Vozitian Orders and its synergies with Layarian Seductress and Priest of the Light. That being said, there are some cards that I would probably never consider using in a deck (there are bad commons such as Selfishness, Outwitted etc.), but it's true that there are not many cards that are complete garbage, compared to other TCGs. Most cards will find a use somewhere.

    Vozitian orders has also some uses with removing things like crippling blow/captured prey/consuming fear from allies hit by them. I'm not scaaying it makes it a great card, but this an be useful at times.

    First, Vozitian Orders is far more useful that Selfishness, Wooden Staff, and probably some other CotC cards that I can't remember off the top of my head because you see them so rarely. It's also not near the worst of DP cards.

    Second, I don't think "technologically" was the word you were looking for.

    Well, if I were facing millstalker, I think shrine of negatia is probably batter choice than storm coat because it can counter full moon as well. Definitely I will add both.
