    Here's 3 Bronze- class trait so you can get tokenless focused skills

    Travel Light[Bronze-]
    Boost/Handicap (U)
    Duration 3
    At the beginning of your turn, discard all armor cards in your hand and add a walk to your hand for each armor discarded this way.

    Resist Temptation[Bronze-]
    Boost/Handicap (U)
    Duration 3
    Whenever another card from you or your allies is attached to you, reduce that card duration by 1.

    Verbal Component[Bronze-]
    Boost/Handicap (U)
    Duration 3
    Trait. At the Beginning of your turn, reveal all Magic Cards in your Hand. Revealed Magic Attacks you play deal 2 more damage if they target at least one character.When playing against the Game Master, don't draw a card to replace this.

    I don't see any reason to use Travel Light, especially since Thick Hide Armor and Dynamic Armor are available. Replacing blocks instead would provide synergy with Wind Dancer, but I still don't see any reason to use it.

    What does Resist Temptation do if the duration starts at 1? (Impenetrable Nimbus, Firestorm)

    We don't have any support currently for altering the stats of cards before they are played. You'd have to attach Verbal Component, and then its effect would apply to all revealed Magic cards.
  4. hello world

    hello world Hydra

    They are intended to be weak enough that triple tokenless skill with them aren't that good, and I think there are definitely some helmets with bad armor cards and good non-armor cards, some so meh that trading them for a walk can be nice.

    Ideally, resist temptation would just auto remove them.

    And I guess verbal component could just boost targeted magic effects since it seems that ethereal form tracks them

    Plenty of cards care about non/targeted.

    Travel Light would be amazing with Toughened Hide Strips and Officer's Harness.

    Resist Temptation is hardly a Boost at all. I mean, like, it's technically a Boost like Negative Energy Being is technically a Handicap. I see how it helps against other attachable Handicaps, but the fact that it doesn't affect enemy controlled cards, eh (@ Boost).

    Neat cards in general, though, and definitely a neat concept to strive for tokenless Focused—especially incorporating a built-in drawback, considering (or despite that) there's no Focused Blind Rage item.

    Reimaging Castle Mitternacht: Many (CM) Attacks have some form of conditional damage. This card would be less powerful compared to Elvish Insight, but is more consistent regardless of enemy race. As I understand it, Devastating Blow would not do full damage the first time, though it would do the second time. Magic Laser Attacks would be an interesting choice, yet I don't see a slightest chance of EWiz becoming strong.
    Fey Inquisitor
    Trait. Attach this card to yourself. Whenever the damage of an Attack you play is increased by that Attack's effect, affected characters reveal their hand. Duration 2.

    Now, here's an Attack card to accompany it. It's got a Flaring Torch-like interaction that can scale with attachment trigger effect. Together with the previous card, the whole enemy hand would be replaced. I don't think it's viable to hit your own (Nimbused) Wind Dancer.
    Attack Melee Fire
    Damage 7, Range 1
    Target character discards all revealed cards and then draw the same number. Free Draw. When this card does damage, increase its damage by 1 for each revealed card in target's hand. Burning 3. Duration 1.

    This one is supposed to be a CF card. I'm not sure how positioning would work with this card, but it definitely has some real potential.
    Spiritual Seal
    Utility Magic
    Range 10
    Target an ally. Affected squares become Illusionary Terrain (Enemies must Stop. Enemies may not sight through). Duration 2. Linear.

    You know that feeling when you draw too many Moves. "Mobility is king" and all that, and we still have Elves suffer. This state of affair has made me think about cards that turn mobility into health.

    I began with an AoA-like, table-throwing design. Probably not a good idea, but I like the way it makes forcing enemy move important.
    Slashing Blitz
    Attack, Move Melee Slashing
    Damage 4, Range 1
    Step 2. Discard all your Move cards before you play this. For each card discarded, this card gains 4 damage and Hard to Block 1.

    Well dang. Warriors aren't the class we're supposed to be helping! And so I looked at existing cards that'd be cool but is mostly unplayable. Smashing Spin is limited to Elf Skill slot where traits are expected, whereas Violent Spin inexplicably isn't. Smashing Spins could actually have playable boots itemization, but one-off 2 damage just isn't flashy. It's kind of dumb, but reusability is really the only way for weaker effect to gain interesting potential.
    Smashing Flail
    Trait. Attach this card to yourself. Whenever you start a move, do 2 Crushing damage to every enemy adjacent to you. Duration 2.

    Healing Dash is playable, but is limited to 2 mostly because Talented Healer exists. Reusable Healing Dashes almost seem too good, but would you spend a move and yield your position just to heal up? It could tank Step attacks all day I guess, as long as the map allow circling, but it just doesn't sound like a winning gameplan to me. So I'm gonna call this balanced at limited availability, like SCA.
    Endurance Aura
    Armor, Boost
    Armor 1. Keep. When you play a Move card, at the end of that Move, Heal 1 for every square you are distant from your starting square.

    Um, okay. In PvE my elves are still kicking much arse, but PvP is not my domain. I will take advantage of any advantage I'm granted, because the bots don't hold a grudge.
