[details=Thoughts on Redeemer Field]As it turns out, FaceOnMars did suggest a map with a comeback mechanism, but you’re the first to suggest something inspired by V-Trigger or Ultras. I think this is even better, since it doesn’t have to deal with things that are different for each character – everyone has the same number of aces and jokers, after all.
One question I have is whether you can use this to fetch a Joker from your discard. If so, that’s extraordinarily powerful, and encourages people to use at least one Joker early on.
My other question is about the name… I don’t get it. Is it supposed to reference something?
[details=Thoughts on Rushdown Arena]This is interesting, though the name is ironic since it doesn’t help Setsuki, the original rushdown character. I already suggested Fury Road as an alternative name for someone else’s suggestion, but maybe it would be better here? Still, neither one limits blocking in the same way that the Codex map does… All the same, this seems like a good one.
[details=Thoughts on Bizarro Realm]You missed the obvious Pokemon reference to Inverse Battles! I think something like “Inverse Arena” would be a better name not just because of the reference, but also because it makes it clear what the change is. It’s not that everything’s bizarre, it’s that everything’s reversed. Regardless of the name, this is a fantastic card!
Thoughts on Quince's House of Lies
This is great! It feels like everyone gets to try being Quince (except it’s closer to Grave’s Knowing the Opponent), but instead of stepping on Quince or Grave’s toes, it lets both of them combine this map with their innates to either draw more consistently (they can both do setups that guarantee they get to draw a card) or get a chance at explosive drawing. Though I’m not sure why Block isn’t an option… Is there a reason you left it out? Also, I think it should be called Quince’s Palace, to reference the Pandante Casino card.
I’d just like to remind everyone that there’s a poll going in a previous post. Please vote if you haven’t already! It’s pretty even between two of the options right now, so I’d like to see one of them or the other get a decisive lead before I make a decision.
