"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)
