Oh, FFS, LaLight....how can anyone engage with faust and not sound defensive?

Gah!

*what I really need is to take a walk and get out of my house but it’s raining and there is no place to go and sorry for being snippy

If we're being like that about it:

Black Lotus
Action - Duration

At the start of each of your turns for the rest of the game: +$3.
(This stays in play.)

I didn't see this one, it was in between two picture bombs.

Maybe Black Lotus and two other Shelters could be a combo.  Like, reveal all three from your hand to win the game.  But I don't know my MTG that well.

A more direct adaptation would probably look like this:

Black Lotus
Event - $0

Once per game: +1 Buy, +$3.

I've got an idea for a big RMM themed off of the Stormlight Archive. Is there anyone else in line for the RMM queue?

No one said anything, so I'mma assume I'm good to go. I'll be opening signups in a bit

I generally trust ashersky's reads and I have a hard time seeing scum!ash tunneling like this, which is causing to rethink my strong townread on faust, but it's not enough for me to actually want to lynch faust.

So, I want to share something that went down in our QT. Hopefully its still useful to people debating faust vs. ashersky even if I scrub the relevant details to avoid outing our roles.

faust's initial claim to me as far as what his item did was a lie. He claims he lied because he thought there was a decent chance I was scum and he wanted to misdirect the scum faction. Given what role he initially claimed and the role he later claimed, I see a stronger case for that behavior as town then as scum.

The other thing is I initially only partially claimed my role and faust pushed me to fully claim before he revealed his role. That part feels scummier to me. It didn't at the time, but in retrospect, there is a town narrative- he didn't want me to be able to weasel out of my claim later if I was scum- and a scum narrative- he needed to evaluate how powerful my role was to know if I was worth a nightkill.

Does this move the needle for anyone?

Well I certainly appreciate the info. And yeah, it does move the needle a little.

At which point was faust claiming that his predictions about two roles were correct?

I actually use an app on my phone called Jack of All Dominion (it's Android, but I'm sure there's an equivalent for iPhone if you use that).  It lets you choose which expansions you want to use, and has a blacklist function if you want to exclude specific cards.  But also, it gives you the option of customizing what kinds of cards you want, e.g., you can choose how many cards from each set (either a specific number or a range), and how many specific types, such as Attack cards, Treasure cards, Reactions, Duration, categories like cantrips, villages, etc., as well as set-specific types like Doom or Reserve.  It hasn't been updated yet to include Menagerie, but it has all the other sets (including 1st edition Base and Intrigue)

There is no way for me to win with faust.... it’s just a double bind. Say less and it would fall into the fluffy category (which is totally, and unabashedly me...so, hey, nice to meet you!) or be more concrete and then be scummy. Eddie is “my role is meh”, LL is “my role is boring”, Cayvie is “my role is crazypants”.... but somehow I have most significantly violated faust’s ideas about what kinds of statements are scummy or not.  He doesn’t say why, he just votes for me. There is no interaction. So, my response was/is “Le sigh.”
Are you saying that your only 2 options for how to play this game are to not claim anything at all about your role and make exclusively fluffy posts, or to claim things about your role?

No, those were the choices you listed in your multiple choice question to faust
But what does this have to do with "winning with faust"?

You seem to be saying that If I wanted to engage in the conversation about roles, there wasn’t any way that I’d have been able to do so without creating an impression that I was outright scummy or piling on for towncred. If I was more concrete, it would be revealing too much. Less concrete, not verifiable.

So, if I wanted to not raise your hackles...I should either comment on those who were talking about their roles or just stay out of it completely, rather than engaging the conversation by reciprocating. I find that thinking this way can make me timid, especially when I’m town. That’s why I said that I thought we’d turned over a new leaf...we have been playing together pretty effectively lately. But not so much now.

This post rings some bells inside of me
