    *sighs* Casuals.

    Listen, you primitive screwheads. All the big shit is wonderful in casual games, or big multiplayer games where you can force/co-op Shared Research or enough Co-Opted Technology cards through to boost yourself up to a tier 5-6 and toss around the big shit, like Transhumanism for Bio or Bio/Comp decks, or global board-clearers like Predicted Collision Event with the Astrophysics keyword.

    Standard-level tournament play is either 1v1 or 2v2, which makes those kinds of plays difficult. At best, most times you're going to only hit Tier 3 cards unless you over-Resource the deck and pray your opponent(s) fail to fag things up with an Event. And Biology has so many fucking low-Tier Event busters, though it also gives you the Event counters. So does Engineering. At Tier 1-2. As Resource cards, no less.

    I will always regard this man as the Scientist to play if you have the balls to with Engineering or Physics keywords. Unstable, capable of letting you ignore an entire Tier worth of requirements, but eats Resources at 4 times the rate.

    Much as they hated each others guts, Tesla/Edison as Tier 2 plays are actually fucking effective. Tesla lets you gamble to get Tier 3 on the table early, Edison lets you salvage something from whatever Tesla fucks up.

    Astrophysics ramp deck here. They're more tourney viable than you think. What you have to do is pack the deck with a lot of smaller scale effects you can spam while ramping up towards Supernova (I'd use Heat Death, but it's takes waaaaay too long). A single supernova is enough to grant you the win against most decks that haven't gone for space colonization, which simply isn't strong in the meta right now.

    Hey, Transhumanism is tournament-viable.

    Sociology shines because it's faster than any hard science deck and pays off well. If you push a good amount resources into it you can outspeed even biology in your development speed. It doesn't compare to high-tier hard science cards like Cosmic String/Heat Death/Mass Extinction/Bioengineered Pandemic etc. but you reap the benefits before everyone else and can divert your resources to somewhere else afterwards.
    >> Anonymous 04/21/10(Wed)21:16 No.9344011

    That's why I like splashing Engineering. Co-Opt Technology gets you less than Shared Research and you need at least three Military Keyworded Resources to play it (which in turn means Sociology can literally mindfuck it with Peaceful Conversion)...but it outright destroys two of the Resources you take with it, and you take full control (at half strength) of the third. Shared Research has to stay in play and splits the Resource pool evenly between all the players with an SR targeting the Resources in question, and if they remove it from play, they're back in action with the full Resource pool they had before. SR has no keyword, and the devs put it in to make Bio or Bio/Comp decks lose some of that quick ramp-up.

    You want pissed, watch a Bio player drop a tier from COT and you go up one using his flippin Agricultural University to make Nerve Gas. Plowshares to swords, baby.

    The various paradoxes only work if your opponent is trying to tech up purely on theory. If they have Experimental Verification or one of its variants, all your philosophy suddenly doesn't actually do anything.

    Although, I've always wanted to try an Econ/Philosophy deck. Cut off their funding for experiments and hit them with paradoxes to stop their theory. It wouldn't work outside casual, but it'd be pretty fun to play.

    It's not too hard. Sociology fucks everyone up, but since most of it's stuff either goes for the lowest cost cards first (Grassroots Movement, Religious Methodology, Irrational Conversion, Irrational Conclusions) or takes a specific keyword (Peaceful Conversion being the biggest "I TROLL YOU MIL-ENG LOL" one) to target, it means Bio can usually throw more stuff out than Sociology can fuck over- or Adaptation/Social Adaptation around it globally.

    That's an under-appreciated ability of Sociology- dangerous because it's fragile, but Revolutionary Thought can swap all your Resources to two Keywords of your choice at the cost of destroying one in three (your choice, so naturally you trash the junky Tier 1 stuff). It's more flexible than To Mars!, Global Warming, or World War! , and Sociology can even deal with those.

    Of course, if your opponent can deal with it, you're SOL or stuck trying to win with only half your deck useful.

    Strong metagaming there. Regionals had so much Bio going on it was a no-brainer to sideboard for- and an Eng/Psy deck made top 4 anyway out of nowhere and only lost because the poor bastard drew into nothing but Tier 3+ stuff three opening hands in a row.

    It sucks trying to play against Bio after a triple mulligan. He'd have stomped that Soc/Psy deck a new one, since he had six counters to Peaceful Conversion in the sideboard and three in his maindeck alone.

    Go the other way. Philo can't outright twist the keywords on cards like Soc, but if you pump it with enough resources, you can basically starve the opponent anyway. Economics lets you feed Philo very efficiently, and Charitable Institution means if you have enough Resources, he's forced to feed your resource pool with part of his own each time they use a Resource card themselves.

    Then you play Dogmatic Thought, pay it with what you've got + what he's "donating", and proceed to lock the board and crawl to the win an hour later. If tournament play didn't have a time limit, it'd have placed repeatedly by now.

    Casuals will strangle you though.

    That's viable in 2v2 play, but remember you've gotta pay to keep all those in play. It's not too tough for Philo, it's tougher for Soc, and it's near impossible to keep all of them going at once. If you can leech off your partner with a half-dozen SR's between you? Maybe.

    And actually, that's not a bad idea. Eng/ Math-Philo, maybe? Or Econ/ Math-Philo. It's legal, even if most tournament decks usually try to go with as few keywords as possible.

    I'm confused as to why nobody's mentioned Technological Singularity yet... Granted, it's a late-game card that takes at least 2 fields at tier-3, but once it's out it's almost impossible to stop. Heck, I once played a deck that did CompSci/Physics to get the Singularity out, and splashed several other fields for fun stuff to bring out with it.
    >> Anonymous 04/21/10(Wed)22:15 No.9345291

    That's why. Usually, most tournament decks peak at Tier 3 for a single field. Again, it's like using too many keywords- it tends to disrupt deck focus, and you have to be much more (ahem) single-minded to push a Singularity out. That means even minor disruptions can take you getting to Singularity past the time limit.

    That being said, CompSci-Physics/Math would work, since Math is one of those keywords that's friendly to both. It's just got a smaller pool to work with, and having both a field and a keyword with Experimental so common between them can lead to a lot of Proof of Theory/Experimental Failures dinging up your Tier progress.

    Give it another expansion with a decent set of Math keyworded cards and I'd say it's a more stable deck. Math is a relatively new keyword with a small card pool to work with, which right now relegates it to splash status only.

    True... as it stands, Technological Singularity isn't a tournament-quality card... but it's fun to use in Casual play, especially if you can use Tesla to get to tier 3 fast.

    As I remember, the Framework is like this:

    All cards have keywords, which declare their cost or the keywords provided (for resources)

    4 card types - Resources (labs, centers, etc used to play shit), Assets (normally with abilities or stepping stones to heavier stuff), Plays (instants such as lawsuits) and the ever important Agendas (which hold the requirements to gain victory points)

    So you play your agendas, try to gain victory points by them, and try to fuck over your opponent enough that he can't reach his objectives before you.

    Can't remember cards right, probably something like

    Supermaterial - Agenda
    Chemistry, Engineering, Research
    1 victory point: Remove Chemistry, Research from game
    "Resilient, flexible and everything in between"

    a number of people have talked about a Victory Agenda or Victory Condition card which you have to aim for, meaning you start play with say a Tech Deck, and you put down a VA of the World of Tomorrow, and then you have to meet the stated requirements to achieve victory, such as Personal Jetpacks, Flying Cars, Moon Colony, etc (about a half dozen requirements per VA) each requirement is an Endeavor which must be completed.

    Yeah, it seems you may have multiple agendas. The thing is, your opponents knows them and it becomes a dirty race.

    I also remember main/bold keywords, which MUST be paid. And probably costs (or a fixed cost) representing the number of keywords that need to be paid.

    Oooh... neat!

    From this thread I had guessed that there were Resources with sub-types (Location/Installation, Scientist, Equipment...), Events, Theories/Endeavors, and Agendas.

    Each card would have keywords, with Fields being a special class of keyword that would determine what sort of Research Points a card generated and/or required for play (You could add +5 RP to physics and chemistry, for example, and then play a card that required 3 RP of Physics or Math)

    In addition to (or instead of, for non-scientific resources and events) Research Points cards would also require money (Development Cost? Needs a fancier word), and may have additional requirements such as a theory or scientist of a certain tier/epoch/tech level or with a certain keyword in play.

    Theories/Endeavors would probably have either the Experimental or Theoretical keywords (and maybe Practical?), and could be contested until they were either verified or proved, respectively, at which point they become a permanent part of your board.

    Basically, it seems that the model the image is based on could be pretty heavily simplified by using fewer card types but more keywords and/or sub-types (Agenda - Policy/Victory/Government. Resource - Installation/Equipment/Material)

    The issue you run in to is uniqueness. It's a reasonable rule that you can only have one card of the Government type out, but if Government becomes a keyword its uniqueness is now a less intuitive special rule (Like the legend and wall subtypes). Making these sorts of things a card type is one solution, or their uniqueness could be because of rules text, or you could borrow from MtG some more and have super/subtypes, or you could do it with the actual layout of the card, with some sort of division between unique and non-unique (and possibly Field) keywords.

    Really? What counts as REAL GAMES in your mind? D&D and 40k? There are games out there that people other than you might enjoy.

    Most things except resources could be conflated into Assets, as cards that affect the game a la MtG enchantments.

    I believe paying was made by tapping resources until you met the keyword quota
    >> Anonymous 04/22/10(Thu)00:28 No.9348073
    Assets is certainly a better word for this card type. Resources should be the things you generate to pay for cards, and only that to prevent confusion.

    Just picked up a couple of boosters today on a whim: fucking win!

    Got a Temporal Vortex (Trans-disciplinary) AND Anti-Mater Theory. The best part? Mathematician Savant and DNA Splice...........

    >> Anonymous 04/22/10(Thu)08:17 No.9353853

    Well I was thinking about "government investigation" and "grass-root support" as early resource generators, those two combo pretty well for a large early pool of resources that should be able to get out some permanent Soc cards and some cheap Philo cards so that you can screw up the enemy's playstyle really early.
    >> Anonymous 04/22/10(Thu)08:27 No.9353962

    Well, both Temporal Vortex and Anti-Matter Theory are nice cards, but I don't see them being used in the same deck as their both high-tier. Also, Anti-Matter Theory looks evil, but as it is a theory card it is easy to deflect and hard to keep in play, especially if your opponent has even the slightest amount of Probability cards in his decks (granted, not common outside Maths, but still)
    >> Anonymous 04/22/10(Thu)08:36 No.9354056

    You know, now that I think about it AMT might work good in a Soc/Phys deck, play "Popular Culture Spinoff" and "Media Craze" on it and you can fuck up the opponent pretty good.

    Scientists are an Asset. Plays are "Events".

    Agendas are played at no cost, but only one per Field per Tier at a time. Finishing an Agenda is done by playing a single card of the appropriate higher Tier on it, including paying it's cost.

    Destroy that card (not lose control, not render it inactive by being unable to pay it's Resource Cost) and you either replace it with another card of the same Tier or you drop back down a Tier.

    Say I'm using my Eng deck (Field) with Military and Math (keywords). I play World War!, which is a Tier 3 Agenda. I can play a single T3 card to complete that Agenda- in this case, I attach Nerve Gas to World War! and complete it.

    I can now continue to play T3 cards of other kinds. Unfortunately, my opponent is a bitch and plays Arms Reduction, which removes one of the highest Tier Military keyword cards in play. Nerve Gas is discarded as it's the only T3, and I'll have to find another T3 card to attach to it before I can play Tier 3's again.
