    I agree with @Kalin.
    I think it's a great idea. In fact I put together a whole series in the smithy combining 3 sets at a time.
    RtS on a weapon is cool but I think it fits more with Vengeance.
    Looking forward to see what you land on.

    I agree that RtS on a weapon is cool. I'd love to be able to stack a few, which makes me doubt it will happen. Also cards.csv shows it limited to helmets, but that file has been changed before. (My entry should fail the first cut because it has Smoke Bomb on an Arcane Skill, but it's what I felt like submitting, so I did.)
    tl:dr - Selection seems unlikely with RtS on weapon, but winning isn't everything.

    Yeah, I doubt it would win due to RtS not being on non-helms. The thing is there are not AA cards except that and I can't fit 6 cards on a helm... :-P

    Do you all think Cone of Cold would be okay on Robes? Currently there are none, but I think it would be alright, considering that it is on Arcane Items.

    Cone of Cold can be stacked very heavily in a deck with Staves and Arcane Items already, so putting it on Robes doesn't seem very risky to me so long as it's a thematic fit. Robes could do with some more cold cards!

    My item also tried to incorporate the expansions, but I only used the three major ones.

    The thing about Battleaxe Block is that it is a Block but cheaper, which makes it improve the item even more.

    I think Double Axe To The Face will be the way to go since it is a pretty weak card for an Emerald quality, which makes putting 2 of them (for 3 Ready To Strikes) a lot less likely and powerful.

    I would run this item so fast. I think the issue is extra hack, as much as RtS. At the moment it is only possible to get 1 in your deck, and that's poorly itemised.
    I think your challenge here is making a double major isn't too strong. Utility is probably the way to go. I'm on my phone so can't really play around with cards that might fit.
    Also, perhaps arrange the cards in the order their expansion was released?

    Items organize their cards by quality and rarity. There's no way to come up with cards that make sense if they were in order of expansion release.

    And yes, it is too powerful. Going to be scaling it back with Double Axe To The Face and some other stuff.

    That card is actually pretty good though, just poorly itemised. Stun is very powerful.

    Agreed. Anvil Strike is super strong, definitely wouldn't put that.

    No, it isn't. It's quite powerful, add some frenzy attachments to your character and you will see.

    That's about the only useful effect of doubling Frenzy. It is still weak for an Emerald card. Look at the other Emerald cards out there:

    Pretty sure Double Axe to the Face is on the lower end of all those...

    Well, at least it isn't Enchanted Mail. :p

    It's also worth noting Double Axe to the Face triggers armor rolls twice, and has trouble with on-damage rolls such as Martyr and Boosted Heal. It's a nice card when you have frenzies or enemies are fragile/vulnerable/leaky-minded, but not stackable enough in a deck to make a gimmick strategy around like Jim's Magic Missile.

    I do think Double Axe to the face is riskier from a flavour perspective than Battleaxe Block, the former seems like it would be a signature AI card while the latter is more of a standard card. I would really like to know what AI cards are viable for submissions and which aren't.
     
  18. Stexe

    I thought it would be more viable than Battleaxe Block due to Battleaxe Block being exactly like Block but "cheaper" in card cost.

    Yes but AA has broken from this tradition many times before.

    On another note, I'm a little surprised no one has gone with the 2nd birthday theme. Was thinking a divine weapon with DAttF, chop x2, twin heals x2 and birthday present could fit the theme well.
     
  20. Gingrich Yurr

    Probably because using Birthday Present will give you close to 0% chance of winning. I know Flax has bent the rules before but for a card that literally does nothing? Not sure about that.
