I chose a mission because you can remove locations by playing other ones over them. Missions, on the other hand, are nearly Untouchable.

It's worth noting that the Militia give each other +1/+1, which can matter if you're running other Militia and could eventually add up.

And while it may not have been successful I have to say that getting you to ask "Why? Why would I add something this useless?" means mission accomplished.

Trading Post / Re: I need a hand and some vets opinions here!

My first instinct says that this trade is terribly unfair, and that it is Player One who is getting ripped off. Mechborn is a rather good legendary, and while Yagron isn't necessarily fantastic he is the best legendary for an Exiles player. While not every card in Player 1's offer is necessarily very good, it has a number of key cards for various decks, such as Hehkeem the Corrupted, Annihilate, or even Unstable Bomb-Bot. Even the Uncommons are decent cards, namely Kidnapped by Demons and Overcharged Bolt.

Player 2's offer, on the other hand, is mostly full of what I would consider chaff. The only redeeming element is that they are all some kind of premium, but foil is my least favorite kind of premium--and a number of them are simply terrible cards, like Honorable Farewell or Tribal Medicine. In my opinion the only card really of any value is the Gold Logarithmatron.

It's worth noting that trading is highly subjective and highly dependent upon context. If you're sitting on 5 soulbound Mechborns, you can afford to essentially give 2 of them away. And if you're really keen on collecting foils, even if they're never going to see play, then maybe you want the foils. But in my opinion Player 1 is offering a lot--not all of it is good, but some of it is very good--for very little.

You can only have one copy of CARDNAME in your deck.
At the end of each turn, create a 1/1 Conscripted Militia in each player's support zone.

When times are desperate, even the untrained populace must fight.

You get a gun! And you get a gun! And YOU get a gun! Everybody gets a gun!

Please don't make a deck with 100 of these

If CARDNAME is in your hand or command zone, it plays itself automatically.
Whenever CARDNAME enters the battlefield, shuffle three copies of CARDNAME into both players' decks. Then draw a card.

Regardless of which side you're fighting on, nobody likes vermin. Trouble is, vermin like everybody. At least, everybody's food.

Ladies and gentlemen, I have combined Ixxi the Annoying with Tribbles, made them into a beast, and made it everybody's problem. It cantrips, it drains morale, it annoys everyone, and it eats up your resources little by little. In short, I have designed a pest.

Because the strawpoll was abused beyond puffying belief, the poll is now located in the official discord.

I asked Gin about it yesterday and he said "tomorrow," so sometime within the next 24 hours I guess.

Alright, nominations are closed. I'm going to wait a few more days for Tamerlane to respond and then I'll post a poll for voting.

Here lies the judgment.









Drumroll, please.

Congratulations to the winners and thank you all for participating. The decision was rather close for me--including some last minute changes just before posting--as there were so many cards that I liked.

I would like to nominate Tamerlane. Tamer's good-natured spirit and dedication to the game have single-handedly kept the tournament scene alive in Infinity Wars. His support helped me to run my latest special Lore-themed tournament, and his constant enthusiasm has helped to keep the game alive. He's a regular CDC participant and would run tournaments every week, including the month-long Rift-Runners' League and Weekly Rumbles.

Perhaps speaking most to Tamer's importance and awesomeness is his recent absence. He's been unable to run tourneys or keep up with the forums for the past few weeks and his absence is sorely missed.

Tamer ran an interview series for much of last year and into this one before he started running tournaments almost full time. I've worked closely with him and can say that he is truly a fantastic member of this community, one whose efforts deserve the highest praise.
