To put it in simple terms: "Gord is the next Mystic Echo". Just because this card exists all cards that play a special card is costed more (no other logical reasoning behind Call Of Forest to be 10 when Royal Decree is 9 ). I think it is the curse of ST. Every Elf is a +1 for Isengrim and Yeaven and every Deadeye is a +2 for Vernosil etc. I really wish these cards are removed (including Gord) and all other cards are fairly priced. It will allow more healthy situation for ST.I'll probably get a lot of backlash for saying this but, I hope Gord gets nerfed. I never liked this card in ST (being auto incloude and stupid good for 7p) and I think we might get to a point with these new cards where gord just becomes too much. filavandrel is yet another unit that also plays a spell, harvest spawns a unit that can possibly play another spell and we havent even seen the other cards yet. I like spellatael being strong in a unique and interesting way, not in playing a 20 point finisher on top of (hopefully) strong synergy by itself. if it wasnt for gord maybe orb wouldnt have been a 6p and the elk not a 9p (just my assumption) and I feel like gord is a crutch card that ultimately has to keep other cards low bc it would be too OP otherwise.
I also hate current ST spelltel. I usually give GG for even big defeats in the past because, you know, the opponent is playing ST. But this new Spelltel is disgusting and I don't feel like giving GG to this particular version of ST. I just finished a game in which my Hidden Cache lost 15-75 in a 6 card R3.
Remove Gord and make Orb Of Insight as 5P which it should be (at the max) and the 9P spell should be made 6P to see any play.
