LastFootnote, if he still has the PMs or stuff written down.  Or the designer, whoever it is.

I guess that means if i had taken full advantage of the system, my own card would have won. Just what i deserve for giving Elixir 10 points, too. I can live with that.

I voted Elixir last. To me, it looks like hell to play with IRL. You have to go through your deck like with Hunting party, but instead of having all your cool cards in hand, you have played 5 markets and the same handsize.

I couldn't vote it lower for that than Incantation, though, because Incantation also goes through your entire deck sometimes. Most prominently when you trash an Estate or Curse.

I don't think this is a good comparison - When trashing a curse, you can just chancellor your deck, no information lost for anyone. With Elixir, you have to find a certain card that makes you do the process all over again. I like my comparison with HP,  resolving them is pretty identical. Except that HP's are atleast rewarding.

Woohoo! That's cool. :)

drsteelhammer makes a good point. I don't own Cornocopia and so have never played with Hunting party IRL. When I was playing with this card a little bit, I didn't find it too cumbersome. You know exactly what you're looking for, so it should be fairly easy to sift through. I can understand why some people wouldn't like it - I don't think I'd want to play with HP IRL.
