Changes:

Blue Starter:

Porkhand Magistrate ability costs 0 (instead of 1) to use.
Lawful Search Changes to an upgrade, with “sacrifice this:” as the trigger for the ability it currently has as a spell (Look at opponent’s hand or discard, then draw 1)
Building Inspector ability is “Your opponents must pay you 1 gold to build (or rebuild) a building” (instead of only the first building costing 1 more)
Bluecoat Musketeer can now be long range while 2 attack or less (instead of exactly 1)

Law:

Jurisdiction gains “You may trash Jurisdiction and/or the searched-for spell” and “If that spell has Channeling your Law hero can Channel it until he leaves play” at the end of it’s effect.
Tax Collector is a 3/3 (instead of 2/3)
Guardian of the Gates is a 2/6 (instead of 1/6) and affects Units and Heroes (instead of just Units)
Arresting Constable Gains “Haste” and can target any unit or hero with it’s ability.

Peace:

General’s Hammer costs 2 (instead of 3)
Drill Sergeant’s gains “limit twice per turn” on it’s second ability (can only move 2 runes off of the DS each turn, same as Ancient)
Debilitator Alpha costs 4 (instead of 5) and has “As Patroller: Attackers get -1 ATK” (even if they aren’t attacking Debilitator Alpha)

Finesse:

Harmony Instead of “sacrifice Harmony” to stop the music, the card now reads “You may sacrifice Harmony at any time. Whenever Harmony leaves play, turn all dancer tokens over. They are now 2/1 Angry Dancers with Unstoppable”
Star-Crossed Starlet Her ability is now optional (“Upkeep: You may have SCS deal 1 damage to herself”)

Purple Starter:

Time Spiral costs 0, and ability adjusted: “Add or remove a time rune from a card (or forecasted card) that you control”
Tinkerer also triggers on Arrival. “Arrives: or :exhaust:: Add or remove a time rune from a card (or forecasted card) that you control” //combined with the other changes, previous version was a bit too degenerate

Past:

Prynn midband becomes Dies:… (instead of “Dies from fading”)
Seer can only affect cards you control.

Peace

General’s Hammer: costs 2 (instead of 3).
Drill Sergeant: gains “limit twice per turn” on it’s second ability (can only move 2 runes off of the DS each turn, same as Ancient).
Debilitator Alpha: costs 4 (instead of 5) and has “As Patroller: Attackers get -1 ATK” (even if they aren’t attacking Debilitator Alpha).

Truth

Spectral Tiger: gains Resist 1.
Spectral Roc: gains Resist 1.
Hallucination: Changes to: Spell - Summon :target: Target up to 2 units or heroes. Summon a 0/X hallucination token for each target, where X is the current HP (factoring in any buffs, debuffs or damage) of the target. Destroy these at your next upkeep.
Dreamscape: Instead of “all units are illusions” this becomes “Arrives or Upkeep: mark up to 5 units. These units are illusions until your next upkeep, even if Dreamscape is removed from play”. Also gains “Tap: Create a Mirror Illusion (max 2)”. Still channeling, still cost 3.
Quince: Midband ability now costs 1 (instead of 2).
Mind Control: Cost reduced to 4 and can attach to any unit, including tech IIIs.

what is the worst case scenario… i dont think he can break tech ii with normal tech i drops even with mirror copy… possible dreamscape and popping cadets can break tech ii… but that would be costly… is there something i’m missing? considering all tech i drops and quince’s skills… free speech pass… dreamscape + hallucination or something else to pop? there isn’t really… so that will cost a lot… this scenario is prolly ok… forgotten fighter can bounce one… this can break tech ii with mirror copy of something… this is prolly still ok… hero drop will guarantee tech ii save i think but is risking max quince and mind control ds which would suck… no tech ii next turn should be okay if he breaks thru… bigby can stash if bad things happen…

Heh, I wrote that note when I thought I would have the turn out Friday, but then couldn’t decide what to do.

P1, Turn 4

Tech Mind Control and Origin Story (I’ll probably want to Hero’s Hall, and then bring in Prynn to Temporal me up some more cards, so a hero removal spell is warranted over more random dudes.

Note: I could kill the cadet by trading Tink, giving me one extra damage pushed through, and 2 extra hp on my Mirror, but I actively don’t want Tink floating around in my deck & also I want the 1/2 in play to mitigate Maxband Oni.

uhh… 16 face dmg? is this over? my board will be wiped again for sure… question is… will garrison and tech buildings survive… tech draw (mt) sigh… ds would’ve been saved my day…i will get to rs this turn… what to tech… worst case scenario… mind control ds… this is prolly a game over for me… that means i have to put rn in backline and lighter patroll which means possible tech i or garrison break… other threts are stwerdess and nullcraft… he can just bypass patrol and break my tech i if he has nullcraft in hand… does that mean i have to diversify and tech tech ii units? maybe… i think i need another ds in hand next turn in hope that garrison survives… 2nd tech… i should have built tech lab in t3… sigh… i guess flagstone spy is only choice i have… invisible could be nice against mind control or hallucination… too expensive though… is this right?? if i slip in 2 drops i might get lucky and get to both cadets? but things will die and if my tech i breaks… i could get a very bad hand… thinking about worst draw after rs… if i draw aven… this is very very bad… i could lose both garrison and tech i… not certain but i think i have to go with tech ii units… (bi draws td)… another sigh… for gods sake don’t tell me ds is bottomed… (td draws ds) (ds draws arrest) now rs time… (rn draws oc) (oc draws ds) 3 gold and ds… ds… do i drop ds now? i need every body to absorb dmg… that mens i lose both ds unless i draw 2nd cadet… 33% chance… or do i drop hero and worker… one less hp but maybe that is not critical or is it… i can pop mirror and left with 1 rune… thinking about patrol… if he has mind control… backline nm blocks… if he has mc and stewardess… i put ds on elite… he doens’t have enough gold… check… if he bouns bi… he’s got 13+2 dmg and my patrol is 10… very bad… lose garrison or any tech builng… chances are he has 4th unknown tech card in his hand… this could very well be stewardess… i can rule out hallucination and dremscape combo… he can only have one tech card in hand… so i can block mind control w/ nm but stewardess can wreck my patrol… you know what… i just hold onto ds… i should have hand of 6 or 7 even if garrison breaks… not bad…

should have built tech lab last turn… ahh…tech in 2x elite training in for anti air and armor…need mt in the deck… using mt first before rs…(ds draws td) (td draws oc) noooooooooooo… aven or spy… aven hoping for bi or mt… (aven draws et) oh crap… worker or tech lab… worker and then regret again… thinking about patrol… ds in elite same as last turn to block mind control stewardess can kill aven and then he’s got 11+1dmg i got 9 on patrol… he can even do two mirrors and 13 dmg… with 9 i lose garrison… that would be bad… well actually that means his board presence gets thin… so maybe not so bad… or should i put aven as sql… no then i only have 8 and he can do 12… what if he has dreamscape and hallucination now… then im down to 5 and he has 6 dmg to assign to buildings. he can only break one… that should be fine? or not… i hope fine…

Doesn’t Max Prynn cost you 4 not 5? I think you have 1 gold left. Should I assume it is floating?

Huh, you are correct. I’ll make a worker, then. Edited to reflect
