Some days, it feels like the cards do what they do out of spite. They’re cruel, vicious little things, that hide their true natures behind colorful card backs, but ultimately intend to spite the deck owner at any given opportunity. A bad day, with a bad hand, can feel like there’s no recovering.
Anyone familiar with competitive trading card games understands this concept, and there is a lot of success hidden in saying that, like many other card games of this sort, Spellweaver is more or less the same.
