When you mentioned unlimited I wanted to find a way to make unlimited actually matter without being a 1 strategy gimmick. You see conscripted militia which requires mass numbers to even matter, and then you see OoS 5/5 which doesnt make any use of its unlimited at all.

The only way I found to do this without bland mass buffing (as if we dont already have enough of that) is by making a card that can give incremental advantage as you slowly horde more of them. I didnt want the whole deck to be just that card, otherwise this card would never be used in any other deck.

I started with a character that grew into a storm when many were gathered but was inspired by locations and the fact that locations destroy other locations when played. I wanted to make a location that made use of this: hence supply depot.

I didnt want it to mass buff though so I made it targetted buff but more powerful separating it into attack or defense depending what you need ro adapt to at the time. A straight +x/+x buff may have worked but that doesnt take much thought to use.

Playing 4 resources to gain the ability to give +2/+0 or 0/+2 for 2 is super underwhelming. This is a location that you need keep investing in to make it work, but eventually its worth it. Paying 12 to have 5 in the graveyard and 1 on the field allows you to buff things +10/0, 0/+10 but this is honestly quite a tempo drain to pull off.

Anyways congratulations, see you all next challenge

BTW

i'd be remiss if i didn't 'say' this aloud.

Damn it mew; your idea is soo good. Simple; yet, workable and also a more needed element of IW, mixed with my personal favorite. (the Cow subtype) hahaha........ and the memes!

Great design. I love/hate you and your design.

MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
