Wesley's STCCG card of the day #329

Hi, folks,

for those of you who say QC has slowed down our game too much, here's a turbo:


Doorway, rare QC.
Plays on any planet. Affects all players. While in play, whenever any player has a card in hand matching one just played by the opponent, the Manheim Effect (a temporal "hiccup") may occur. Opponent's card is suspended while player shows matching card, returns it to hand and plays any card from hand as if played normally. (Not duplicatable). Nullify with Anti-Matter Pod.
Okay, Decipher, what was that with my "environment" suggestion? A card that is not duplicatable and affects all players? This could have been one. Hrmph.

Anyway, what's the net effect. The game becomes fast. Terribly fast if you are in a matchup with similar decks. Or if you're playing against an opponent who plays a deck with just too many of a particular card like Tebok's arguer deck. One Manheim's Door and one Parallax Arguer against that deck, and you'll have a very hard time to get enough cards into your hand. But of course, your opponent can also benefit from your door and by design, the number of his different cards you could exploit is exactly the number of your different cards he could benefit from. But there's one keyword here: different. Many players use certain cards in multiples, often in substantial numbers. And if you are playing a well-tuned highlander (one of a kind) deck, you have a distinct advantage especially if you don't use up your key cards (Kevins, Amandas, etc) too early.

Other situations in which you can greatly benefit from the Manheim Door:
