Feedback from the experts

Nathan Lie: It takes a lot of work to make a card game, especially one with synergistic relationships between its individual cards. Thanks to the second-turn effects of many cards, it allows these synergies to exist in a game where only a single card can be played at a time. A valuable improvement this game could make is to add some visual feedback for the interactions between cards - it's hard to tell sometimes if a defensive card had blocked some damage without reading all the cards individually and doing some extra math.

Jupiter Hadley: This is a very interesting and complex game. Some of the text was cut off for me, and I did feel the cards were difficult to understand, but the art is great.
