If I put out Micro Targeting Computer before Imbued Fire, why shouldn't I get the bonus for both. Once one applies, why should it go away?

I can't really say she's too powerful, but she certainly is very helpful! And she totally has short hair!

This game sucks. It doesn't even have any dice!


Just assume I'm always doing that.

Skip your play and your power phases to draw 2 cards. You can be the late hero that has a starting hand of 6.

It's not very difficult to play an extra hero. You could also share the third hero with your friend, making the decision making even easier!

Every card just does damage. Doing damage is all any hero is good for.

Batman is mainly a hand-to-hand combatant, where The Wraith has a preference for projectiles! The Wraith also sells her company and reveals her identity!

Can you trade in 10 Ronways for a gift certificate to Denny's or something like that?

Only the original, authentic Ronway is worth owning, no matter how much other Ronways are like the first.

I heard they will bundle all of the Ronways together with alternate artwork and re-release them. The original is great, but going for over $500 at cons.

This is a post so Ronway is not double posting, apparently that is a thing he will not do (possibly it's a weakness you can use against him in your fight there Pydro).

This account is actually a bot programmed to disagree with Foote, annoy Ronway and support all anti-American propoganda concerning beverages.

Oh, and Parse is super weak.

Hey, Mods! Can you delete a post so that Ronway has two posts back-to-back?

Ok, Ronway, let's here, in detail, about your amazing use of Wrathful Gaze. 2 points for each adjective you use.

Why isn't Lightspeed Barrage X instances of 1 damage to a single target?

Damage reduction would cripple Tachyon.  It already gives her a tough time.  With that change you would probably only play her alongside damage boosters if you deal with a DR likely opponent.  And if you deal with a non-DR opponent and she has a damage booster, she deals upwards of 27 x X damage where X is between 2 and 7 or so.

Agreed that it is a double edge sword, but it works both ways. It just fits much better thematically, and fits much better with the pic.

It could be argued that if she hits the same spot fast enough and often enough she can punch through damage reduction.
