An idea that came up my mind lately: what about making the -set a really adjustable one? As an example: Temporal Narcosis - Revolving Door was played; everybody agreed how broken/unintended this is. Just bring out a new or or whatever with the icon just to Nullify Temporal Narcosis (or whatever broken card) - it would solve the case without banning and afterwards it could go through playtesting to see, what else "damage" this card could do...
Friendly question, as I'm trying to understand your perspective: what's the practical difference between "make a new
card that kills Temporal Narcosis [or whatever broken card]" and "ban Temporal Narcosis [or whatever broken card]"?
If we ban Temporal Narcosis [or whatever broken card], nobody can play Temporal Narcosis. The abuse is prevented. Playtesting can then work on an errata at leisure and eventually put out a working version.
If we make a new
card to nullify Temporal Narcosis [or whatever broken card], people can technically play Temporal Narcosis, but, in most games, they will simply see it nullified. The abuse is mostly
prevented. Playtesting can then work on an errata at leisure and eventually put out a working version. Then what? Do we ban the anti-Narcosis
card we just created, since we fixed the card?
These seem very similar to me, in practical terms, but the first option seems more effective (it blocks all
the abuse) and less expensive (no new card production needed, no future ban needed, no pressure on players to stock
/Tribunal/Civil War.) That's why I prefer bans to
. But clearly you see some benefit in doing a
instead, and I'm trying to fully understand that benefit.

My magic wand fix, is a rule that report with crew = number of staffing icons. (Minimum 1).
Not only would this fix prevent report with crew from becoming crazy powerful, but it would make more sense as well. It confused the heck out of me the first time I had an opponent drop a "report with crew" with way more personnel than just the crew. Bonus benefit, it gives players more reason to use ships with big staffing requirements.
Then you are literally reporting with the crew, and no extras.
I'm personally fond of this idea, but it is worth noting that it would break / require errata to at least Type 18 Shuttlepod
and Bajoran Raider
EDIT: oh, right, and Brunt's Shuttle
