So I was playing some more purple yesterday, and was able to turn the tide against a Anarchy/Blood/Dicipline player. It was good fun coming back from 4 hp on my base.
Having 3/4's in SQL is pretty neat! Quite different from my blue experience.
Anyways, one of the cards that made me come back was Temporal Research giving me new cards, and being able to use Vir Garbareans ability to exchange a card from hand with the top card on my deck, getting out some Shimmer Rays to block lightning wings attacking me. Felt good.
But it had me thinking, Temporal Research is a pretty sweet card in general. Whenever I play purple, I end up playing in a way that makes me very Card hungry, and this card can easily get 2 draws, if you just play it with the Pastasnack hero. It also synergizes a lot with Future in general, since you could have Pastasnack out and two Knights of the Conclave, then you have a 2 gold draw 3 cards combo that don't really looses you any tempo either.
Purple is very fun!
