GobboE Deckspert

The purpose of (most of) my decks is simply to have fun with friends, not to win necessarily. Instead of building a cutthroat deck, often I deliberately build a flaw into the deck, to assure that a deck is fun to play with and against. Yes, I'll loose some (and it's somebody else's turn to celebrate), but if I play right I'll win some too. Key to this is balance: balance between power cards, fun cards, and deliberately not covering every weakness in the deck. Some call this the 75% build, I call it the 'Have fun playing' build.

I also try to have a certain variety in my decks, that allows me to play different cards, thus ensuring that no two games are quite alike. Well, those are my two cents on this topic: enjoy :)

Okay, I am going to add another thing: the Norse Gods are not that different from the Egyptian ones if one looks past the animal's heads. Indeed, thre powers are comparable and they both can die (Osiris, Set in the Egyptian pantheon to name but a few). So I do not like the hexproof idea very much, I like the conditional indestructibility much more. Odin could be indestructible when there's a certain amount of creatures (being a god of war), Thor when an opponent is dealt damage, Loki when a sorcery is played, or something like that.

@ Busse : No probs, happy to discus the subject with someone :). To return to the subject: Loki dit not kill Baldur, but he delivered the tool to kill him though (mistletoe). Hodur (yes, Hodor) the god killed Baldur. That said, I would like to argue that Loki is divine - just not in the christian sense: he has godlike powers, (near) immortality, and performs godlike feats.

I wouldn't say they can be destroyed...yes I know about ragnarok, but hear me out.

The only time some of the Norse gods are killed is during the endtimes, and then only when they face other extremely powerful divine and (semi)immortal beings: the world eating serpent and Fenris, to name but a few (okay, Baldur is killed by a plant, but in defence: it was wielded by a god). No other threat can actually kill them (Baldur actually resurrects be it after Ragnarok).

So I would like to see a condition that a Norse god is indestructible unless an opponent has a god in play, or something. (and, an exile always helps :) )
