Ancient Gold

Ancient Gold

Ancient Gold

Type: Support Faction: Syndicate
Cost: 2
Game Text:
Action: Shuffle Ancient Gold into your deck to reduce the cost of the next [Syndicate] character you play this phase by 1 (to a minimum of 1).
Set: DD
Number: 67
Illustrator: Scott Altmann


Here's another card that should be nominated for the "Clifton Rosenberg Worst Card in the Game Award."  Pay 2 for reduction of 1.  Yeesh.  And had it required you to sacrifice the Ancient Gold, maybe you could've used some fancy recursion tricks to get it back for multiple uses.  Instead, you have to shuffle it back into your deck and risk drawing this clunker again.  For all these negatives, they should've dropped the "minimum of 1" clause, and it should have been any Syndicate card, not just Syndicate characters.


1/5 stars

I think the idea behind this one is to be able to use multiple domains to play a character card in exchange for increasing the cost by one.  You have a 5 cost character card, and a domain with 2 resources and a domain with 4 resources.  It is now possible to play your 5 cost card.  This would be a slightly better card if it was not limited by faction, since there just aren't any high cost Syndicate characters that are so amazing I want to get them out one turn ahead of time.


I don't see this going into any of my decks, but maybe there's some strange combo out there that I'm just not seeing.

The CCG version of Ancient Gold is awesome (5 of 5).
