Some new cards

While fighting a bot on PVP, I encountered 2 new cards. Don't know if they've already been posted, but here's one of them. Sadly I didn't take a screenshot of the other card, but I can tell you what it does.

The first one is Torrent of Air. It deals 20 damage to the opponent's team for each Air type Skylander in your team. So if you have 3 Air types in your team, it deals 60 damage to your opponent's team.

The second one is for Green/Life. It works the same way as Muscle Sprouts and Nature's Fury.
It gives one team member +10 attack permanently for each Life Skylander on your team.
So if you have 3 Life Skylanders on your team, it gives one team member +30 attack. It costs 2 energy/mana/crystals to play.

Yeah I also encountered a new card "Dirge of Undead" while playing VS last night using Rip Tide's "Go Fish".

Holy crap that art looks awesome.

Seems like the new cards are for monotype teams, good incentive too.

God I need that card, I love cards with all characters of the Element on it. So can you unlock those like every other card or is it "special"?

I'm assuming that a new pack or a new update will be released fairly soon, where you'll be able to obtain the cards. I think that for now, they've only added the cards without a way to get them, aside from the ones you could get from that promotion.

Just spam Pop Fizz/Ninjini teams until they show up on your hand? As you guys knkw, I don't have the game, I'm just guessing that's the best way to get low level elemental spells.

I'll get on it once I get home from work, however my game is in Dutch, so I don't know if that's too big of a problem. Maybe someone else can help out as well?

Well, the names don't seem to be translated yet, until it's not officially out those and the effect+art will do(I'm severly behind on putting the cards on the wiki anyway :c ).

Another idea is to hunt for the cards while fighting against the right element of Spell Punk missions. Their Craft cards also draw elemental spells.

Oh no. The names are always in English. Or at least in the version that I have. The actual card text is translated, but the names of the cards aren't.

Holy moley, that is an awesome find. I have only found cards using Sap of the Ancients.
Bifrost Platinum Sparx Gems: 5162
#11 Posted: 16:24:01 03/08/2016
Sap of the Ancients only grants character cards, though if these regular spells are around we should be on the lookout for more as well.

Another bunch that I've found, seems that there's probably one new one for each element as well as one new one for each character:

Signature Relics for some, but not everyone... Interesting. But Sap of the Ancients is definately another one to be using a lot from now on then, so a Magic/Magic/Life or Magic/Life/Character of Choice team is good if you want to discover new cards.

Very nice. How did you find the character cards? Sap of the Ancients? I'll try spamming that on all the characters for a couple of hours and see if I get anything.

You can also use Northern Lights for the character cards.

Any one find any new cards for sonic boom or prism brake? Hate that they only have 1 each and hope they end up getting more.

Eruptor's card is Chain Reaction, I have not had it since the pictures have been released.

Whirlwind's is Dragon's Secret

Misfire is Countdown

Wow, pictures now exist. This is so cool.

And no, I have not seen any for Sonic Boom or Prism Break.

So, I know how to get the 24 new character cards but the Dirge of Undead, etc, those 8...you use Rip Tide on say Ninjini and you could have a chance to get this? No chance getting this vs a non Skylander I wonder? Anyone seen them played on you in story mode? Just curious where those 8 come from.

I'm going to ask a dumb question, but PVP against yourself? How do you do that? And all I've ever gotten from ANY PVP match is coins.
Bifrost Platinum Sparx Gems: 5162
#33 Posted: 16:13:46 08/08/2016
He's not getting them by winning matches, Lemons, he's getting these cards to appear in the little list below the opponent. Clicking on them gives you the cards played before you got to that point, so it's an easy way to take screenshots.
As to playing against yourself,two Game Center/Google Play Games users?

@TakeYourLemons

I have a smurf iOS account I play on my iPad Air 2, my main device is Android so I'm able to have two separate accounts that can challenge each other whenever they like. I could alternatively just win trade by matching myself up and letting one of my accounts farm up the gold but rarely is that the case if there's a peak of players searching likewise.

Anyway regarding these cards, I do like the creative approach the designers have gone for. Some of these look pretty weak initially but it's all about encouraging new and diverse team compositions so we're not seeing the old vanilla "Deal X to all enemies" or "Gain or Heal amount of damage/health" with no apparent special interaction.

Some people may think this is not a worthy expansion since it doesn't seem to be pushing the power creep boundaries, but lets be honest, power creep will ultimately destroy the longevity of a game. And considering there's so many options to explore regarding the lore & characters for the Skylanders, cards like these that involve creating the monotype comp can definitely be helpful for future-proofing the game for later card designs.

This expansion is definately great for variety, but I think the Relics might encourage everyone to have All Frontline cards too much. It'd be really nice to have enrage/taunt statuses in future ones so you can actually make use of them in several turns before Break and Short Circuit show up on the enemy deck. The monotype cards are awesome all around though, they're very simple and cheap and allow them to compensate for lacking gimmicks.

I think players especially the new ones will realize how inconvenient and anti-tempo it is to include too many relics in your deck. Some relics already have a soft taunt on them such as Brimstone since it runs the opponents risk of taking too much damage if they don't kill it. I think some of those types of high-risk/high reward relics should be made in the future. For me personally, I think I've only ever included one single relic in my decks since I don't want to have more than 1 of them stuck in my hand.

I mean taunts to take away the focus from the Relic. Maybe some sort of protection status where any damage in that turn is redirected to a single character - they'll eat up EVERY drop of damage(heck you can 1HKO some characters with Warly Birds/Anvilanche and a basic attack), but you'll get whatever bonus per turn you wanted.

I know what you mean, though I think a mechanic such as that might make relics very snowbally in nature especially ones that extract superb long term value like Ageless Bonsai. A risky proposition but its filling a void in the design space.

The idea of taunt would definitely help out relics that need an extra turn to occur like Masker Mind's Prisoner and Chill Bill's Cooler since I've never seen a reason to include them since they're such a slow tempo effects.

No never got those. They seem to have stopped showing up, they must have switched them off again.

Any idea if the update that added Sonic Boom and Prism Break's lines(as in the last one before the game was officially dead) put those cards back in? Someone reported on another forum that Kaos summoned an unfinished relic with Relicsplosion(no pictures though).

If they're not appearing despite the AI's love of Northen Lights and Sap of the Ancients, then they're probably off again. I haven't had any luck of them using the cards they gain, so...
