Hi folks,

I was a bit disappointed when I realized that Skythorn only allows to draw 1 card per turn, even if you play let's say 8 creatures this turn.

I somehow feel that this is broken, as in my opinion Skythorn should reset its countdown to 4 after you draw a card.

Eager to read your opinions.

Kind regards

Grong

I would like to see them do this. I'm not sure if Mojang did it to simplify the countdown so it always happens at the end of your own turn. I guess that helps with consistency, but i would prefer it like you suggested =)

I think if you jump through some hoops you can get it to draw more, like say... unbind, or bearpaw, increase countdown by 1

Cantor! If that works, that would be amazing.

I feel like it makes since to limit it, so you have to plan it out and order your turns, instead of playing a rat king and having the excess spill over. I feel if they changed the mechanic to account for this, they might have to increase the base countdown, and that would make Skythorn less effective in many decks. I would probably pull it out of my deck, or at lease decrease it's frequency.
Good thought, but I vote nay.

Update: Tried Skythorn unbind combo. Totally works! might have to build a combo deck around this.

Using a scroll to draw a scrolls doesn't really sound that usefull..

Tempo theft could be a bit fun though. Maybe.

I think you'd need to have a really strong combo for drawing several times to make it worth your space including unbind/tempo theft, and don't forget you'd need to splash order in the tempo theft case, because replenish would not suffice. Unbind + Infinite Wolf combo could work, but then, maybe that's too many scrolls needed just for a draw combo. Also, you don't get back unbind or tempo theft without halls, so that's another weak point.

Besides that, I think it's more balanced as it is now, I think it's actually alot of fun to plan ahead when reducing either brute's or skythorn's countdowns.
