We are constantly reviewing card text, and understand there is still more work to be done. We appreciate your feedback as always and will continue to work towards a more complete, consistent experience.
James.. I make this game.

I'm not sure if Varyus shows the card selected form the deck to the opponent, never tested him from the opponent's point of view. If so, his text should also be changed to match Cartographer and Explore.

Another card in significant need of a clarity update is Harahel. He states that while he is ascended he gives all your characters +2/+2, when actually he only gives the boost to deployed characters. Even more importantly, nothing in his text states that he must be deployed to grant his bonus.

That explains why Unending Drone never seemed to work for me. Very welcome clarification.

A couple of other text change suggestions:

Sacculas: Text talks about "each opponent's fortress", suggesting games with more than two players. That might be your plan for the future but at the moment it's confusing.

Radariah: "if she is alone" could be clarified. I believe it means "alone in the Attack Zone".

Immolation Drone: Missing apostrophe on "opponents". Trivial I know, but it looks unprofessional.

Radariah and Immolation Drone could indeed profit from a little bit more clarity.
As for Sacculas , i dont see why this should be confusing. It states that "every enemy fortess" takes damage.
And thats literally what happens. If you have only one oponent only one enemy fortess will take damage :p

If people have wording suggestions for other cards please feel free to contribute them to this forum topic I created a while ago.

There are quite extensive comments and suggestions on card wordings here.

Yeah, same thing happens with Vasir, the Chained Prince, the card says 'Each turn Vasir is deployed, your opponent must pay 5. If any do not, Vasir becomes Unchained'. I think it was meant to address more than one player, but at the moment it's confusing. Also, for the sake of clarification, it should also say 'must pay 5 resources.'

Multiple cards have had their text changed to state the card will be shown to their opponent.  Others cards that are very similar in nature like Aleta's Discovery / Dark Wish etc... did not receive a text update.  Is LM still reviewing if they want the cards pulled from these abilities to be shown or not?  Currently they are shown to the opponent and could have easily had their text updated with the rest of these cards.

Hope this topic isn't being ignored after the information was dumped here.  I understand that text is constantly being reviewed but if these changes didn't affect cards that exhibit the same behavior there has to be an answer one way or the other.
