So, with this card, your opponent will get punished by roping every turn. But when you are the one who roping, the roping-damage just easily get cancelled. It doesn't seems fair for me. Yes nozdormu is the counterplay, but if the reward is not punishing enough, it basically counter nothing and just turn the rule back to normal. So, I think the reward should be more punishing, like "You will always on rope".
In average, you must be a fast player anyway if you play this card, so I believe you can do the turn in 15 seconds.
So if you play Chillwind Yeti, you get a 4/5 on your board but your opponent gets nothing. It doesn't seem fair to me. Weird logic.
I honestly can't comprehend how your example related to my logic in my explanation. You should breakdown it if it actually related or you might just misinterpreted what I said.
I said it doesnt fair for a symmetrical effect (roping damage) to automatically negate itself when hit the user. Because it makes the card basically has no downside (it is 1-mana that always start in your hand). So everyone who doesnt have any play at turn 1 will just include it, while the only way to counter the card is by including 9 mana understatted minion. (Or just play faster, yes, but I talk about the card design) In my perspective, It basically force everyone to include nozdormu in the deck if they want to play normally. That kind of impact is particularly strong so the drawback should be high too.
You can't comprehend that me playing a card should have a benefit for myself and not my opponent? Wtf? The downside for this is, like all quests, that you have to spend your first turn playing this. And against a fast aggro deck, for example, this quest will have absolutely no effect at all. You can "counter" it by simply making effective plays.
if you read carefully, I already saying that every deck that doesnt have play on turn 1 will auto include this. And being the quest with this kind of design is different than any other quest. The other quest: You get reward after you complete the quest. This quest: you get the reward right away, and the term 'reward' is actually the punish because not following your own rule. Yes, you were misunderstood the design here...
