I would like to put this contraption up for review. Maybe at first sight you might think … is this a deck? How does it win, what does it do?
It’s pretty straightforward actually… Survive long enough and destroy their threats, then try and recover your life total. One your card-drawing engine kicks in (gate power !) you can start thinking about recovering key utensil cards and start putting them back in your deck.
Alternate win conditions that I’ve considered sofar: Teferi, Hero of Dominaria, Gate Collosus, Gatebreaker Ram, Gatebreaker Gargoyle, Hydroid Krasis. But it would be something to put in the sideboard, not main deck. My point of view is that most decks would have a lot of “dead” cards in their main deck in game one, where they might remove lot’s of those cards for the second game. Sideboarding those critters in my main deck for game 2 could create a new advantage for me. But that’s just my 2cents.
Anyway, this is just a short test for creating templates 🙂

Hearthstone, a game set in the “World of Warcraft” gaming world.
A relatively easy looking game. All you have to do to get started, is choose a character (Warrior, Shaman, Mage, … ) and create a deck of exactly 30 cards. It’s with that selection you go off to battle or try to solve your quests. Whichever class you may choose, the target is for all of them the same: get your opponents life from 30 to 0 and you win the game.
Each turn you’ll gain 1 mana Chrystal, which you can use to bring your cards into play.
Cards exist in Neutral and Class specific formats, both of which can be used simultaneously in your (class-specific) deck. While playing (winning or loosing) you get experience added to the character you choose to play with. And as you raise in levels, you’ll get extra cards added to your standard selection.
While playing and/or winning games, you’ll also be gaining gold which can be used to buy boosters or be used to buy yourself into arena (do this instead of buying boosters) games.
One big difference with a traditional card game is that there’s absolutely no way to trade your earned/won/bought cards. They are yours and for you alone.
