I guess we'll never know...

Well,i will, but you won't

Altough if you take a firm stance one way or the other you have a 50/50 chance of being right...but you'll never know, and would you want to know knowing you could be wrong? While you dont know your right and wrong.

I like to call this dilemma 'Ozles cat'

You could better your odds then 50% by thinking about the kind of posts you make, and studying your post history.

Well then you obviously are a hitman, and have to keep up a fake identity in order not to get caught.

I currently imagine mail-mi wearing a dark trenchcoat and a bowler hat, hunched over a bit, toothpick in his mouth, holding a gun in his pocket.  One bead of sweat trickling down his nose.

Here, "trash" means physically tear the card up and throw it in your trash.

So if your grade is 4, it becomes 4 4/10?

I've always wanted there to be an attack that hands out more copies of itself, but I could never get it to work.  The thing is, there has to be a reason for the first player to go out of his way to buy one.  You can do that with an on-buy effect, but that feels a little clunky.

Anyway, I think this is the most interesting formulation I've come up with of the concept:

Funky Rats
$4 Action-Attack
+1 Card, +1 Action.  Trash a card from your hand.  Each other player gains a Funky Rats.

Not really something that would ever get released an official expansion, but it's fun to think about.  It's a $4 cantrip trasher with the drawback of giving everyone else a $4 cantrip trasher, but with the bonus of that $4 cantrip trasher giving you a $4 cantrip trasher, etc.

For reference, these are the kind of card ideas that Joe comes up with on a regular basis.

...spin-offs are still better for all of the previously cited reasons.
But not strictly better, because the spinoff can have a different cost than the expansion.

It's a bad card thread, I added some probably bad cards to it, so what's the problem?

So this is only sort of a joke card. As in, I wonder if it could work. But I don't think it's worth starting a thread for.

This combos with Scout more than wishing well does...

Anyway, I think it needs something that happens if it fails the first time you play it.  It won't work too often.
