Slumbertrap ~ Show me your hand ~

Summary: EOJ is a card game, so it’s just natural to have this ability.  I was actually surprised that we didn’t have this until now.

Comment: 1 Mana to look at opponent’s hand is very reasonable.  The only issue here is that seeing opponent’s hand in the game of EOJ might not be that useful in comparison to other TCG, especially as this being the ability of creature.  My general take on seeing opponent’s hand is to see whether they can counter what you are about to do.  Since counters in EOJ are based creatures ability, you know whether the opponent’s can counter you or not by simply looking at the board.  Plus this being creature, summoning this will end your turn i.e. even after seeing opponent’s hand, you will not be able to do anything until your opponent finishes his turn.  Needless to say, your opponent will immediately draw a new card, which we don’t know what it is.  So overall, I am not sure how useful this ability is in the game of EOJ.  Perhaps early stage of game, we may be able to tell the deck type the opponent uses, and play accordingly.

    I don’t think being able to see your opponent’s hand warrants using a pretty subpar card. It might help in the early stages of the game when you don’t know what your opponent is playing yet, but after that, this is a pretty worthless card, mostly because if you’re a good player, you already have a reasonable idea what your opponent is trying to do and what he/she might have anyway. Unskilled players will love this card though.

    it could be very usefull this card if you’ll get it in the beginning of the game. using this card can show you if your opponent is using attrition, dragon, cubic deck what so ever which makes you play totally different

    I think this is an excellent card a) it’s a plant b) it’s a good starting card c) it attacks d) it’s a plant (hey, I want a plant deck! especially with the biolith garden card!) and it is good to know what your oppenent has, I think we’ve been crying out for this card and I know I’ll always have one in my deck as a cheap attack and ‘sneaky peaky’ card.
    Brilliant and a new classic I reckon…
    This card alongside the other new plant-enhancing cards makes it far from subpar – again, Paydak, try and think a little more laterally as opposed to taking one card on it’s face value, think outside the box…
