||We close out
this week with another 0 cost 2 threshold Rogue
item. The rare Rogue item Two-Headed Coin.
How appropriate. Another 2 threshold 0 cost Rogue
item and its purpose is to duplicate an effect. What
can I say…little things amuse me.
For this 0 cost 2 threshold item, you get the
ability to grant yourself a do-over. If a coin flip
doesn’t work out the way you want, flip again. Not
only that, but you get a do-over with a bonus. Draw
a card for free and put Two-Headed Coin back into
While this card will have a very small following, it
has its place. Naturally it’s in the trade that
already has several cards that involve a coin flips,
and even one that gets bigger every time a coin is
flipped. If these are included in your deck,
Two-Headed Coin should find room as well.
In limited, if you get a few of these coin flipping
Rogue cards, why not include it (especially since
it’s a near lock as last pick!)? In constructed, it
has its place…casual play.
I don't like luck in games. Thats one of the reasons
The Spoils has always been so welcoming to me-
minimizes the luck factor that is always present in
other card games.
So naturally, when I first came across all the Rouge
characters that required coin flipping, I stayed
away. No need for extra luck in a game that already
has some slight degree of a luck factor (all card
games do, it seems impossible to escape!)
But then I saw Two Headed Coin. It is a zero cost
double deception threshold tactic that allows you to
reflip a coin by shuffling THC back into the deck.
Not only does it allow you to reflip a coin, but you
also get to draw a card!
Now this doesn't exactly make me want to go try
every coin flip card out there, but it definetly
makes me reanalyze the potential in the "luck" cards
in the game.
In limited, I'd rather have a character, but it may
come in handy on occasion. In constructed, I see it
as a fun card.
