    I've read through the 70+ pages of the Card Ideas thread to bring you some interesting drawback card ideas. Because reading through all of those pages is a daunting task and since we had begun repeating ourselves I'm creating several new threads. Warning: I've included lots of my own submissions. Feel free to post your drawback card ideas here or at the Card Ideas thread. Or give corrections, quality suggestions, or slot suggestions to those posted.

    A Weakness
    Handicap, tar quality
    Your armor has no effect.

    I'm trying to create a handicap that would sit in your hand that wouldn't allow you to use any armor, attachment or in hand, but would allow you to block.

    Did you know that this would be the worst handicap if this existed? Because this doesn't draw a card and the effect is a handicap I would avoid putting it in my decks but unlike the other non-drawing tars you can't play this so the handicap is going to hard to get rid of. The effect being your armor is useless is pretty annoying. So worst handicap ever. Also your card is worded incorrectly, I think it would be better worded: "Cards that affect you do not apply the Armor keyword."
    Edit: I just noticed that in the opening post you don't even use consistent styles / terms.

    I can't understand what you are trying to say.
    EDIT: After looking over the quoted post I found my mistake.

    I was trying to make a card for a monster that would be nigh impervious except when it drew this card. I decided not to go in that direction. Dropped Guard is good enough.
    I am trying to make worse drawbacks. Most of our trait drawbacks are secretly bronze quality according to Flaxative. So when I'm trying to craft something with a real drawback, sometimes a dead draw is worse than a negative trait.
    I'll try to go back and see how you've formatted your card idea posts to get an idea for what you expect. For now, I'll just "format" them however I feel since it's not like any of these are going to be made any time soon...or ever.
