Nice hint. I found it by the way. Couldn't read it though.

Loving the Doomed Conspirators! Gimmicky and fits with the theme!!! Totally something I would have tried to use in one of my decks ;D

Quick comment though... this is coming from someone who is familiar with the game but is a bit rusty haha. The "Otherwise..." portion of the ability is worded kind of odd. It is clear of course to someone familiar with the game and it makes sense to word it that way since you guys are trying to save space on the card... but it did take me a couple of times of reading the card to figure out what was going on.

I don't know if this would fit since you're trying to keep it at five lines of text... but maybe change that sentence to "If a missionary was not defeated discard this character after battle."

Length is definitely a concern here, and that would be too long to fit on the card.  Where short-hand will work, we'll try to incorporate it wherever possible, so long as it doesn't change the meaning on the card.  "Otherwise" works because it says "if the previous condition didn't happen, do something else," which means we don't have to repeat the condition in the next line.  Though I do know what you mean.

Ability looks a little watered down. I would have rather seen "search for a curse and activate it" then a vanilla band to angry mob  ;) Then at least it would be playable. Or "If blocking a missionary"

It is a little watered down, sure, but thats because it is so high-risk/high reward. There are a few ways to relatively ensure that a missionary gets defeated (CSA as mentioned, and also Sarah's Jealousy) so he might get a bit of mileage out of the ability. Also, grabbing Besieged from deck should make it worthwhile in a Mob deck.

Unless I missed something, CSA wouldn't activate Doomed Conspirators.  CSA interrupts the battle, which would interrupt Doomed Conspirators' ongoing "If a missionary is defeated..." ability.  By the time CSA resolves and Doomed Conspirators' ongoing ability reactivates, the missionary would already be defeated.

Ah yes, good point. Forgot about the fact that CSA's interrupt is non-optional.

Still, Sarah's Jealousy is still one of the most powerful crimson Enhancements in the game, and can be super powerful in the right circumstances with this guy. And who knows, maybe someone will pull a Mask of Worldliness or Love of a Money to be able to use other CtR/side battle cards, or band to the gray Mob and use Idle Gossip.

My board namesake is finally going to be good... assuming the Armor of God gets reprinted to be useful anyway. I'm so excited. ;D

Now that we've finished the "Know Your Role" series on Land of Redemption, what do you guy think about that type of strategy article?

Is that type of in depth strategy something people would like to see more of?

Do you start reading and it make your eyes gloss over, so you go to youtube and watch funny cat videos instead?

Is it not nearly as in depth as I assume and therefor not all that interesting?

Let me know what you think so we can decide if we should do more in the future.

Gabe, I loved reading the 3 articles.  That's the level of thinking I desire to read about on LoR.  I know it won't work for all the articles, since LoR needs to be beneficial for newer players too.  But if there is more that can be written along these lines, I'll be avidly reading.

One thing that might go a long way towards helping players develop advanced Redemption strategy is an accounting of an actual game between two well-built decks run by two good players.  Hearing good players discuss why they do what they do can be mind-opening in terms of learning strategy.  Obviously the article length would be an issue.

This is something we can do. I'll text Gabe. It would probably be done in video format, think 20-30 min.
Covenant with Death. That is all.

You can also check out the supplemental thread I started today. You can either post suggestions for new content there or if you're interested in writing an article you can take someone's suggestion and write something up yourself!

Redoubter and I are also working on doing video content with sample I/J deck games.

This got my brain working - Might I suggest a sticky thread, locked for adding save for posting about new articles. That way, they wouldn't get lost in the general discussion - like they kind of have in this thread. Then, we can start a discussion thread for the articles we want to discuss. I see that there are comments available under the articles - in my mind, ideally, these comments would be merged with a thread on this message board, though I don't know enough to know if that's possible.
... just a thought.

Welcome to Philippi week at Land of Redemption! This week we're going to dig deeper into the church at Philippi and take a look at a slew of preview cards.

Also, later this week you can expect an exciting article that talks about different player types as well as our regular Friday devotion. We have two days that still need to be filled. If you've been considering writing or recording content for Land of Redemption, there is no time like the present!

Today on Land of Redemption we have a brand new author introducing a brand new series based on community input. Be sure to check it out!

We didn't receive any submissions for the Thursday spot this week so there will not be new content tomorrow. The Philippi article will still be updated with 2 new preview cards.

We will be back Friday with new content as Jesse shares a new devotion with us.

I have an update of my own conserning the game so here it goes; I do apologize for the delay in the redemption tutorial video series. Im still whole-heartedly interested in giving the basics and know how on playing the game. life does tend to get in the way of things which is the case for me having two jobs and trying to pay for my apartment each month but the videos are coming. all I ask is for a little more patience. thanks!  :)
