The energy mechanic gets really strong, really fast. I wasn't really much of a fan of it. I also miss events.

Yeah, Carter, Don and I busted it out. It's pretty [Censor: Quack!] insane. I had 60 cards in my deck at one point.

Yea - not a fan of the Energy mechanic... You can tell they tested this set in house with no public play testers


Well, I don't like it.
But my friend that doesn't like the other ascensions actually liked that version.

I don't mind the energy mechanic exactly but I think a lot of the abilities are too powerful. It seems to me like the designers underestimated the ease in which energy is accumulated


Agree with this. I enjoyed the game, but it was kind of silly, and it lost a lot of its charm pretty quickly. "Oh, turn 3 you ended up killing 1 monster and getting 9 energy in your deck? Cool story, bro." Like, c'mon. I don't understand where the quality control went with this set, because this is the first time I've felt like it wasn't playtested very much.

Well a lot of the Ascension community on their main site actually LOVES the energy mechanic, which makes me wonder how there can be so many bad players out there that they'd think the energy mechanic is perfectly fine.

To be fair, anyone who thinks they executed this Energy mechanic the right way are silly. The idea is fine, but they made Energy so crucial to do anything.

... And how the [Censor: Quack!] do you release a set with only x2 Truth Seeker as Center Row banishment?! :nonono:

How the eff do they decide that having a new set for their main gencon event is STILL a good idea when the last one JUST CAME OUT?

Idk if it's been said earlier in the thread, but the people that usually playtested for them did not play test this set. Everything was done by them in house with friends. not a fan of the way they decided to do that. a lot of the abilities could have been fixed if an outside source and gotten to work on it. oh well. storm of souls and immortal heroes is still great.
