Core issue: All roads in Tournamentria lead to Asmod's Telekinetic Chain. It's overpowered. The war between it and the counterplay of mobile warriors has controlled the meta for half a decade. Players and devs have targeted Telekinesis as the chief culprit,* but the fact is, Rod Of Palver Pree and Luke's Iron Hand are generally seen as inferior because the item Asmod's is Telekinesis x2, tokenless, plus the generally pleasant Stone Spikes, and because nearly every kind of wizard feels the need to pack Fly Other 2, No Damage, because warriors get stacks of attacks with built-in Fly 2 and of Move-2-When-Damaged** built into their attacks. *I don't mean when this bronze card got nerfed from Teleport to Fly. As a new player who only had 1 or 2 copies, pushing a dwarf warrior through a wall felt like an amazing 1-off win condition. I had no idea yet that a single well-seasoned wizard could pack 8+ for 0 tokens. **I don't intend this post to address Vengeance beyond this acknowledgement of its tie to the "too much control vs. too much mobility" controversy. Don't look for it. Moving on. The Knights have said their philosophy is "buff everything and make everything viable." I don't want to see Telekinesis nerfed. I don't even want to see Asmod's nerfed. I would like to see it changed, though. There are other Rare viable control(ish) cards which could replace one copy of Telekinesis. Or, to keep it on theme with being named the Telekinetic Chain, there are other Rare viable control(ish) cards which could replace Stone Spikes and properly add a requirement. Mix and match with Short Perplexing Ray or Melt Armor; manually input artificial Legendary status for Acid Blast, Hot Spot, or Minor Illusion. With a separation of Telekinesis focus from power token freedom, though, comes a need to look at the card's chief counterplay: Nimble Strike focus. The chief focus comes from Vibrant Pain; the chief supplement comes from Howling Pain. Changing these items sounds like a hard sell. I instead suggest re-changing the card. To wit: Nimble Strike is Silver, Step 2 Fly, Attack 4; Dancing Cut is Silver-, Step 2, Attack 4; Leap is Silver, Fly 2, set facing. Dancing Cut and Leap are fine cards; I only ever hear Leap being "bad" when compared to Nimble Strike; they do different stuff, though, and thus that's what needs to be compared. From Nimble to Dancing, we're saying Fly is worth only 1 sub-point of quality? From Nimble to Leap, we're saying Attack 4 is the same quality as set facing? From Leap to Dancing, we're saying Fly+facing is worth 1 mere sub-point more than (no Fly) Attack 4? Between Nimble and Dancing, we all know the real reason one is picked over the other: Fly. Between Nimble and Leap, I've heard people say the difference cost—Nimble's much higher value for their same cost. All these facts sound to me like Nimble Strike does more for its quality than it should. Its specialness (post 2013, c'mon people,) is Fly 2+Attack; it's hard to argue to remove that, especially with Dancing Cut. Therefore, what if its damage were decreased? By 2 might be too far, (Fly 2, Attack 2,) although it'd still be nigh-Unblockable 9 damage, according to Flaxative. By 1, to result in 3 damage, I dunno, whatcha think? (I'm also considering interactions between unbuffed Nimble, Armor, Martyr Blessing, etc. I just don't want to fill this space with "what ifs" any more than necessary.) One big result from decreasing Attack 4 would be Howl's All Out Attack's otherwise unbuffed nigh-Unblockable Attack 8 would be diminished, a small change I for one would welcome. Not claiming expertise. Just trying to look at the "too much control vs. too much mobility" controversy from a different angle. Regards.
