Wow, that scheme really... ongoes.

If this was 1 life it would be a nasty scheme. At 3 it's just too good. Combined with the one that limits enemies to 1 spell per round and you have a tough situation for any group.

I must have seen this before but I don't remember. I love the name! :)

The name is indeed fantastic. The power level is a touch on the high side - at last 12 damage, unless you can win first seems kind of strong.

Mind you, the power level to compare this card to is I Delight In Your Convulsions. When playing against three players, the usual life lost there is 9 (plus 9 life gained.) This deals 3 more (in theory), the players (kind of) get to choose who takes the damage, there's no life gain, and the players can even just choose to not cast spells and continue the attack if that's the best option.

But, yeah. If the players can't get four spells to go off on one round, this one is gonna hurt.

Unless the type line implies that you have to abandon this scheme 5 times, i.e. there needs to be 5 turns with 4+ spells

Ha! Noo, I think that supertype line is just an accident. Probably a bug in the card creation logic: someone entered the type line as "Ongoing Scheme", my algorithm tried to move "Ongoing" into the supertypes instead, but it managed to add it to the supertypes but not remove it from the types. Iterate a few times maybe on the preview screen or something and it ends up looking rather silly :)

Anyways, duplicate supertypes (as well as duplicate types and duplicate subtypes) are redundant as far as I know.

(Although, nevertheless it would be better to fix it anyways.)
