A lot of the complaints on this board concern the popular CTD strategy being abused...the STRATEGY not necessarily the card. Many are complaining about the associated AoE cards (Calamity, Yuanshi's Wrath, Combustion, Tibalt), and use that to justify why CTD is an issue that needs to be dealt with. The card itself is not inherently broken or OP, but the strategy is because of the aforementioned OP cards (maybe not Yuanshi's wrath, and Combustion is really OP when used in a non-Exiles deck).
Calamity itself is an OP card that is pretty much ridiculous in any strategy, hell, its a nuisance in any capacity. The Combustion/Tibalt strategy I cannot speak of since I have never saw it, but it sounds abusable in its own right. Fix those cards, and the CTD abuse would be greatly ameliorated. This is why I am in favor of balancing individual cards rather than strategies; when one OP strategy is attenuated the cornerstone of the deck, then the other cards are basically rotated into another applicable strategy.
Otherwise, triple Purity DoD would resolve CTD balance issues, because the only AoE card is Yuanshi's Wrath; the assertion that the Avatars would exacerbate the issue is unfounded, as those cards would result in major momentum loss. As a triple purity card, the player would have to devote henself to defending, which is fine, considering that's supposed to be the theme of the entire faction. Also, its much easier to build a defense plaguing the field with multiple monsters rather than investing in the Avatars. That's just my opinion.
Finally, PLEASE stop asking for a Calamity buff; unlike most other card games, Lightmare actually take suggestions from fans whilst balancing. If this card gets buffed, expect a lot more abuse.
