Memorable Quotes (Part 43)

"Think about that for a minute. Really. Think about it.

On what fucking planet would you put Ascendance in a deck? Oh, right, NONE because Ascendance is TERRIBLE.

And yet here we are debating the merits of Ascendance over Vessel. Or, shudder the thought, Vessel AND Ascendance.

If you're at the point where you're considering putting Ascendance in your deck, SHOOT YOURSELF IN THE HEAD.

That's why Vessel sucks." -- Ben Peal (3 time VtES NAC winner)

If you cannot honour Ascendance and do not see it's vast potential, you should not play the game. I say: Shame on you, Ben.

Cards that you can play without any requirement have their place, I'd say. Vessel is useful, depending on the metagame, but the math is with Blood Doll most of the time.

I've considered building a Deck around Ascendence + Ashur Tablets and Anson/Parthenon. But bloating alone doesn't win...

P.S: this should either be Part 43, or 43 is missing ;)
