I always imagine the dude on the left of the Tactician art to be the same guy as the dude on the right, like the image is a time-lapse and the same guy shows up in two places as he waits for the damn Tactician to hurry up and take his turn and come on enough with the AP already.

But I'm surprised that the extreme pointiness of the Tactician's hat didn't count for more for jsh.

I'm not sure why this card hasn't become a facepalm image macro.

if i stream a bunch again and get more subscriber emotes, i've thought about using the tactician face. twitch already has a native facepalm emote but this could just be a parody of that or something!!!

14. Ambassador



Am I finally out? Phew. I've been trapped in this mist for days, and it's been really confusing. Those two guys sure look happy about it for whatever reason. Something tells me I'm in the wrong part of the seaside. Gotta admit, the weather adds a nice aesthetic to the place.

The notorious "Bazaar Sword Show exception" to background checks, thanks to lobbying from the National Rapier Association.

Also that is some super confusing mist because I think the guy thinks he's an Ambassador.  Or maybe he's just bluffing Ambassador to block Captain.

Bazaar has obviously better art than smugglers and ambassador, so I'm glad to see it on the highest rank here.

13. Cutpurse



Everyone here has such wrinkly clothing. It's almost as if their skin is lined with huge wrinkles forming those shapes in normal cloth. What a grotesque thought, huh? Let's be honest. The guy here deserved to get robbed, keeping his purse at such a convenient spot on his belt. We undervalue pockets sometimes, I suppose. Cutpurse doesn't have my favorite art, but it's a cute scene that gets the idea of the card out there well enough.

I'd just like to express my surprise and disappointment in seeing that jsh still hasn't explained what was going on with amb, smugglers, bazaar, and then tactician in the middle. I mean, it's almost like he doesn't know it will get funnier once he explains it!

This by the way, is funny because criticizing jsh has become (or really is becoming, (and hopefully this joke and explanation will help it all along, but seriously, enough of these parenthetical thoughts within parenthetical thoughts already, jeeze! (Yeah, it's like we're in Inception))) an inside joke on this forum.

I don't understand. What's wrong with Amb, smugglers, Bazaar, and Tactician?

Playing the role of the dunce who doesn't get anything:

JSH, go back and look carefully at the posts and try to match the title to the picture.

Well, now it's just getting hurtful. Let's change topics! Art is boring! Literary question: who is the blinder between Tiresias and Oedipus? Who the bigger fool between the Fool and King Lear? Are jesters to be ridiculed because of their profession, or is it ridiculous to ridicule them in the first place? Share your thoughts and turn them in at the end of class. This will be two points toward your semester participation grade.

Gods, this has become one of the best weirdest pieces of performance art on the explored web.

I wonder how high that would rank against -say- art from different Dominion cards.

12. Embargo



Ghost Ship isn't the only card in Seaside with an undead theme. Look at that rotten haze over the sea and tell me this embargo wasn't keeping people out for their own safety. The world of Dominion is a terrifying one sometimes.

11. Wharf



The Wharf is nice for the most part. Great use of color that looks good with an orange border. My one problem is that parts of the picture have this glossy, "too shiny" feel to them. Take a look at the guy in the foreground for an example of what I meant. I can't put a finger on why it bothers me as much as it does. I guess part of it is that the guy looks so different from the other dude standing in the background that it's almost as if they are two different species.

Man, Wharf is super good. It probably bothers you because of the crappy scans.

One of the guys in the foreground is a cat, so maybe that's it.

Or maybe that was the joke and I'm explaining it instead of making it.

I am gonna blow you guys' minds. You can use the hover text version I ALSO include in the posts to see the good scans! :O I've been including those scans all along!

Placing wharf on rank 11 rather than rank 1 was perhaps jsh's way of saying that it is so good it deserves to be ranked first twice. There is no level of interpretation too deep when we are dealing with an artwork of this scale and magnitude.

I can't wait for jsh's self reflective thoughts on the card most like his criticism:

Masterpiece.
