I am not exactly sure where it appears that my stance changed.
If blood cost is such an issue why do people play freak drive?
Cavalier is a good card, it does have a limited scope of decks it would be in.
It gives the ability to multi-act to decks that previously did not have access to it. It is not that it is good that made it a rare, rather it is the limited scope and change in potential decks.
Just because the people who have the card in required numbers have chosen to make use of it does not mean it is not viable for tier 1-2.
Dunno, but I just wrote elsewhere (it is kinda more relevant in this thread):
I suggest that we modify the design team's contract (if there is any) so that the ownership of the cards designed is in the hands of the organization, not the designers. At least as long as there is no new publisher for the game (ie. until any possible money enters the picture).
If this forum's card suggestion threads are used to harvest for new card ideas for playtesting/future expansions then the same needs to be applied to all these suggestions/threads as well. So that by default when you suggest a card in this forum you are handing over the rights of those cards/ideas to VEKN.
