Is Storehouse Overplayed?

People are tossing Storehouse (P) into every deck these days. Any why not? It's so amazing!

With ECs like this guy running around, people may think twice about Storehouse being an auto-include in every deck.

Bounce?! What's bounce?

Bounce is simply a better way of saying "return a card from in play to its owners hand".

Very nice! I do love storehouse so much though  :'(! Gray hand control is looking pretty good though...

Thank you for finally getting a keyword for that ability!  Perfect word to use too.

And I hope there are some new add to battle cards in LoC to make his ability work later in battle.  I already know there's Sheol, currently Lurking, etc, but some new ones would be nice.

I like seeing bounce used as a less power budget intensive way of giving ECs a battle winning ability.

Very cool cards, I think keywords like that should be bold in have some difference in font on the ability to make them easily stand out.

@SiLeNcEd_MaTrIx:
 :thumbup: I fully agree. We IMO should head for a binding notation for keywords like Unity, Bounce, etc. (e.g. keywords requiring a condition like Unity can be in italic style and keywords referring to activities like Bounce can be bold. Somewhat like that...

And advertising for another proposal I got inspired by looking at cards from other TCGs and similar ;D:
Making entire card effects most easy to catch and realise as well as understandable even without reading (i.e. making use of icons wherever possible, emphasising certain areas by making them bigger and providing an extra box around it [thinking of the identifier part here]).

My choice to not use Storehouse is looking better as time goes on. I already like taking advantage of my opponent's Storehouse with Lions. But this guy looks fun too.

And I like the word Bounce for return to hand.
