- making them OTF-rules General Quarters
- removing aggressive functions Access Denied
- straight up banning Shape Shift Inhibitor
- removing -icon The Wake of the Borg
I would really love to see the side deck disappear over time. This is also why I am very happy to see Defend Homeworld on the watch list. I would at least remove its icon.
But the card I want to ask about today is my most hated : Containment Field
It has been on the watch list for almost 2 years. Its aggressive use and re-cycling mechanic with Q the Referee (that by the way defies the original intent of the card complicates the game and is not defensive anymore.
So after that much time on the watch list: What is the verdict on that card? Personally, I would just remove the : it would return to its original function without the ability to be recycled each turn.
I think by taking away icons on cards like Defend Homeworld and Containment Field, we are on our way to make side decks and thus Tribunal of Q unneccessary - a noble goal!
I know what some people might say about that: What about homeworld protection? Simple: seed Strategema or Defend Homeworld directly if you're afraid of attack - no icons needed.
What do you guys think?
