    Damage on encumber effects tends to be valued more highly. Add in something like specialized purging, and you've got a much more valuable card.
    I'd say Emerald, easily.

    Okay, how about this... a cold staff with vampire cards and Muscle Through ... maybe with a bit of tongue magic too. That should be an instant win, right?

    In all seriousness, I think a non-gold token cold staff, a tokenless cold arcane item, or a cold robe has the best chance of winning. Those are huge gaps missing in cold items. If you want a chance of winning I'd say design around those, but that's just my opinion.

    A seedy looking gnarl catches Magic Elves' attention as he sneaks closer. Observing that he is alone, Elves waits until the adversary draws close before drawing their weapon. The gnarl yips briefly and raises his paws before slowly lowering one to retrieve an envelope and proffering it to Elves. Not trusting a random gnarl, Elves declines to take it. Eventually, the gnarl shakes his head and sets the envelope on the ground before scampering away. No longer suspecting treachery, Elves opens the envelope and finds a letter within.

    Rocky road is definitely delicious, I approve. But I'm actually mildly allergic to cow's milk, so I'll have to vote for sherbet.

    Flash Freeze sure seems like a popular name...

    D'OH! Sorry 'bout that, @Jezterscap . I'll pick a new name. Done, I hope. I didn't check all the names. Yes, it's because I'm lazy.
    Nah, we'll never figure it out. Give my regards to Cinderella and PC.

    I don't think you need a new name. Flax is unlikely to pick 2 items this month anyway.
    EDIT: I like the new name better.

    If anyone is interested, I would appreciate a critique of my entry on page 1.

    I got one word for this: Useless. Great theme though. So we have 0 traits and what do we get instead Cooling Laser, useful but doesn't beat a trait, Cold Snap I don't know why you would use that instead of a trait, and Adapted to Cold which not only does it not draw you card it also takes a turn to activate for what an immunity which likely will not stop a single damage.

    None of those cards goes on arcane items. The devs said somewhere that they don't want long-range attacks that deal more than 2 damage on arcane items. The only exception I know is Kolt 45.

    As for Adapted To Cold, it's not a trait, so it's usually just a dead card. Those Adapted To cards are not balanced for items, as explained by Flax during the halloween AA video.

    Edit: Nevermind, I thought it was a different item type, but what timeracers said is accurate.

    I think adapted to cold (as cold-related trait) is a neat idea, even when its function will be next to irrelevant unless cold mages clash.

    Would love to see more cold snap and there have been some interesting submissions with it, but everything has such high tokencost... especially with cold magic i think the low end needs the tweaking.

    Honestly thought adapted was a trait. Revising. Thanks for catching that.

    Adapted To Fire would also fit the theme (your cold magic is cancelling the fire magic) and it would be more useful, but probably not useful enough for MP (a good burn mage will have a deck designed to hit you with three attachments).
  17. Dieben

    Dieben Lizardman Shopkeeper

    As much as I might wish it to be different, none of the "adapted" boost cards have the trait keyword.

    There is basically jack for relevant slot-legal trait boosts.
    Almost tempted to put combustible and slippery on there with cooling laser.
  18. Sir Veza

    Sir Veza Farming Deity

    Replacing Adapted To Cold with a negative trait would drop it from (majortoken) to (minortoken). I don't know if that would fly on an arcane skill, but it might. Having those two attacks really gives it a cold theme. Cooling Laser is definitely more desirable than a cycling trait, and Cold Snap can be about equal. Using two cycling traits would make it more powerful, but possibly too powerful, and would also water down the theme.

    There are Arcane Skills with Handicap traits (Defensiveness) so it is feasible.

    I would love some feedback on my item ^^ it's really geared towards mp.
