What's purpose of New Intel after all?

Postby Ginger88895 » Fri Sep 18, 2015 10:26 am

After several years of playing this, I'm still unsure how to use New Intel...

Isn't it kind of occupying deck space? XD

I took 4 * New Intel and tried to play :hu: rush. It actually worked quite well. :)

I think it started as a joke idea.
In the stupid ideas thread...ironically, a card from THAT thread made it in...

It's essentially a card draw. The cost is there to keep this from getting used too soon. At the same time, you get the cost back if you're in a situation where the draw could matter most.

I'm not sure, but i think the card start off differently, without any drawbacks, but that made it too powerful.

I actualy find that mechanic a bit interesting.

Lets say there's a card that costs 10, but generates 5 once played. This means that the absolute cost of the card is actualy 5, but then, there's a restriction that the card cannot be played unless the player has collected 10 energy.

I think they're some cards using this mechanic apart of New Intel.

This thread is more of an artifact than a Derelict Battleship, but just in case nobody has noticed:

I've seen New Intel being used as filler space. For example, let's say you've got a deck with 26 human cards. You need 4 more cards. With New Intel, you've got 4 cards that take up space without drastically getting in the way! If you draw it, you use it, and then you immediately draw the next card!
