Fan Card Mechanics Week 68: Geyser mat
« on: June 24, 2023, 05:30:15 pm »

Design a card around this mat:
Quote
Geyser
Mat
If there are are any cards on this mat, at the start of your Buy phase, reveal your Deck's top card, if it is a Victory, take Blast.


Blast
State
At the start of your Action phase, place all cards from Geyser into your Hand. Return Blast.

Secret History: While I like the Exile mat, I was wondering if there were other similar mat ideas where cards went but had other mechanisms that returned the cards to your Deck. The two ideas I kept are Geyser (Fan Mechanic 68) and Tiny Isle (Fan Mechanic 74).

I'm very sorry about the long delay. I though I might get to this sooner... oh well. Here is the judging:

Nordic Island & Private Geyser Pool by Alki
Ok, i'm a sucker for Heirlooms. I like that the Heirloom gives more and is mitigated by sitting out.
8/10

Crowd by Will(ow|iam)
I like that this sets-up Geyser to gain Blast. Gaining two cards for a bargain price.
7/10

Landfill by NoMoreFun
I don't get this.
3/10

Runner-Up: Crowd by Will(ow|iam)
Winner: Nordic Island & Private Geyser Pool by Alki

Congratulations.

Landfill by NoMoreFun
I don't get this.
3/10
To explain: Landfill uses the Geyser mat as pseudo trashing, or really a pseudo-exile because of the Estate gaining. Since often you want to trash your Estates and not get more Victory cards til near the end of the game, Blast won't often be taken till near the end of the game, and even then you have to happen to have a Victory card on top of your deck. So it seems to me that Blast will rarely get used, so using the Geyser mat as pseudo-exile makes perfect since.

Yes I thought it would be an interesting risk/reward dynamic to pair an unreliable version of Exile or Cage with an option to gain more VP mid game but worsening the blowback if it does pop.

But oh well, can't win them all, and there's always next week. Congratulations to Alki
