Hello, I am new here, but I want to post several card ideas. I hope i got this right..

Sovereigns
________________


This archetype play style is based on basic Real-Time Strategy games (but here, it's turn based instead). We have the workers, the units, the advanced units, the buildings, and the hero, of course. Now, let's explain the card

The Main Units
_____________

| Sovereign Worker Drone “Palladium”| | |Machine/ Tuner/Effect|Light|4||0|2000|Once per turn, you can activate 1 of the following effects: *Remove 2 Resource Counters from your field. Banish 1 “Sovereign” Continuous Spell Card from your deck. Activate the banished card during the start of your next Standby Phase. *Add 2 Resource Counters a Continuous Spell Card you control.| Your standard RTS worker. Since the continuous spell is the building (or in this case, the main ships), it can build them. It can also gather resources! (Palladium is a statue from the sky from the City-state of Troy)

| Sovereign Salvage Ship “Aegis”| | |Machine/Tuner/Effect|Light|2||0|1200| Twice per turn, if this card was Special Summoned, you can remove 2 Resource Counters from your side of the field to add 1 Machine-type “Sovereign” monster from your graveyard to your hand.| It collects scrap metals and recycle it. (it's the name of Zeus and Athena's Shield)

| Sovereign Transport Ship “Dyrnwyn”| | |Machine/Effect|Light|4||0|2200| If this card was Normal or Flip Summoned, you can add 1 level 4 or lower “Sovereign” monster from your deck to your hand.| Transport your units to the battlefield. (one of the 13 treasures of the island of britain. it's a sword.)

|Sovereign Tank “Mistletainn”| | |Machine/Effect|Light|4||1700|1500| Once per turn, you can remove 3 Resource Counters from the field to destroy a level 4 or lower monster on the field.|The main attacking unit. it can easily destroy weaker opponents. (The magical sword of Prainn from Norse mythology.)

| Sovereign Shock Trooper “Nagelring”| | |Warrior/Effect|Light|4||1700|1000| If this card destroys an opponent’s monster by battle, add 2 Resource Counters to a Continuous Spell Card you control.| These guys sure loves to taking parts of their opponents home. (A sword from Germanic mythology.)

|Sovereign Mission Control, Macha|| |Warrior/Effect|Light|1||0|0| You can only activate the effect of “Sovereign Operator Lady Bast” once per duel. During your main Phase 1, you can banish this card from your hand. If you do, as long as this card is banished, all effects that remove Resource Counters on the field have its cost reduced by 1.| She's somewhat unreliable, but very useful for the army to manage their resource usage. (A Celtic goddesses that's associated with sovereignty, war, and horses.)

|Sovereign PSY-Unit, Harmonia| | | Psychic/Tuner/Effect|Light|2||600|800| Once per turn, you can remove 3 Resource Counters on the field to add a banished “Sovereign” card to your hand.| She's a good psychic, but cursed with bad luck since in this army, her ability may disrupts the unit production. maybe she can save people that has been sucked into another dimension? (daughter of Ares and Aphrodite, why I keep the effect is because to reference her myth in meta-level. )

| Sovereign Support Manager, Theseus| | | Warrior/Effect|Light|4||1500|1500| All “Sovereign” card effects that would add or Summon a card during your next Standby Phase will instantly add or Summon the card instead. | A master in forcing his underling to fasten the production. took a pity in Harmonia for her misfortune. (A king in Greek mythology)

The War Hero
_____________________
| Sovereign Supreme Commander, Alexander| | | Warrior/Effect|Light|8||3000|2500| Cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. Can be Special Summoned from your hand by removing 12 Resource Counters on the field. As long as this card remains face-up on the field, all other “Sovereign” cards you control is not affected by your opponent Spell and Trap Cards.| The legendary Galaxy Conqueror, his presence made his army ignore whatever the enemy throws at them. (Alexander the Great, enough said.)

During your Standby Phase, add 2 Resource Counters to 1 Continuous Spell Card you control.|
(Kali's golden Chariot)

| Sovereign Carrier Ship “Horus”| | | Machine/Synchro/Effect|Light|6||2400|1500| [1 “Sovereign” Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner Monsters.] During your Standby Phase, add 1 Resource Counter to 1 card on the field.

Special Summon it during your next Standby Phase.| (Egyptian god of the king, the sky, war and protection)

This card cannot attack the turn it was Special Summoned. Once per turn, you can remove 4 Resource Counters to either:*Destroy 1 card on the field.*Special Summon 1 Level 4 or lower “Sovereign” Monster.| (technically, the name is a joke from a friend. but, since it's extremely cheesy, i used it. Anyways, the Trinity is referring to Trimurti of Hinduism, since the original design is an Xyz of the three battleships. the other two needs more tweaking, though.

|Sovereign Scout Ship “Vajra”| | | Machine/Synchro/Effect|Light|4||1500|1500| [2 “Sovereign” Tuners] If you successfully Synchro Summoned this card, draw 1 card. If this card is used as a Synchro Material, add 4 Resource Counters to 1 Continuous Spell Card you control.| used to be a racing robot, before being upgraded into a spaceship. lost speed in the process, however. (Indra's thunderbolt from Hinduism.)

Is that too many? Anyway, please give me suggestions about them, especially about the OCG and costs.
Any helps will be appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome to LCCG and all that Very Happy

When you're online, if you would join the chatroom, other people may fill you in on what exactly goes on here.

It is a lot for me to review right now, so i'll just get to the monsters today:

EMSOUP wrote:
| Sovereign Worker Drone “Palladium”| | |Machine/ Tuner/Effect|Light|4||0|2000|Once per turn, you can use 1 of the following effects: *Remove 2 Resource Counters from your field. Search 1 “Sovereign” Continuous Spell Card from your deck, banish it, and then shuffle your deck. Play the banished card during the start of your next Standby Phase. *Add 2 Resource Counters a Continuous Spell Card you control.|
OCG is good, but if I were a perfectionist i would say replace "use" with "activate" in the first sentence, first effect does not need "search", just "Banish 1 "Sovereign" Continuous Spell Card in your Deck". Shuffling afterwards is implied, clause not needed. "Activate" is always used in place of "Play".

| Sovereign Salvage Ship “Gae Bulg”| | |Machine/Tuner/Effect|Light|2||0|1200| Twice per turn, if this card was Special Summoned, you can remove 2 Resource Counters to add 1 level 4 or lower “Sovereign” monster from your graveyard to your hand.|
Remove Resource Counters from what? "Your side of the field"? The effect seems good, not delving into the archetype too deeply.

| Sovereign Transport Ship “Dyrnwyn”| | |Machine/Effect|Light|4||0|2200| If this card was Normal or Flip Summoned, you can add 1 level 4 or lower “Sovereign” monster from your deck to your hand.|
Good searcher, risky, but we have cards that work with 0 ATK monsters here.

|Sovereign Tank “Mistletainn”| | |Machine/Effect|Light|4||1700|1500| Once per turn, you can remove 3 Resource Counters from the field to destroy a level 4 or lower monster on the field.|
Good, solid monster.

| Sovereign Shock Trooper “Nagelring”| | |Warrior/Effect|Light|4||1700|1000| If this card destroys an opponent’s monster by battle, add 2 Resource Counters to a Continuous Spell Card you control.|
Seems fine. I'll have to look at the other cards more thoroughly to see what all these Continuous SPell Cards are Wink

|Sovereign Operator Lady, Bast|| |Warrior/Effect|Light|1||0|0| you can only have 1 “Sovereign Operator Lady Bast” card on your deck. During your main Phase 1, you can banish this card from your hand. If you do, as long as this card is banished, all effects that remove Resource Counters on the field have its cost reduced by 1.|
The first effect is probably not needed, let's leave it up to the ban list to control it. Cool, creative effect.

|Sovereign PSY-Unit “Lakshmi”| | | Psychic/Tuner/Effect|Light|2||600|800| Once per turn, you can remove 3 Resource Counters on the field to add a banished “Sovereign” card to your hand.|
From what i can gather most of these banishing effects play themselves during the next standby phase, or are meant to STAY banished, so i'm skeptical of its playability.

| Sovereign Support Manager, Theseus| | | Warrior/Effect|Light|4||1500|1500| As long as this card remains face-up on the field, all “Sovereign” card effects that would add or Summon a card during your next Standby Phase will instantly add or Summon the card instead. |
That seems superior to the above card. First clause is implied as a continuous effect and not needed.

| Sovereign Supreme Commander, Alexander| | | Warrior/Effect|Light|8||3000|2500| This card cannot be normal Summoned or set. This card cannot be Special Summoned except by removing 12 Resource Counters on the field. As long as this card remains face-up on the field, all other “Sovereign” cards you control is not affected by your opponent Spell and Trap Cards.|
Boss monster, baits your opponent's spells/traps. Good card. For OCG: The syntax for Nomis and Semi-Nomis has changed, would be something like "Cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. Can only be Special Summoned by removing 12 Resource Counters on the field, and cannot be Special Summoned by other means." BUT, it really doesn't matter, we know what you mean Razz

Post by EMSOUP on Sat Sep 01, 2012 2:13 pm

thank you for your fix, Seattleite. I'm going to fix them.

For Lakshmi/Harmonia, she's going to keep her effect. Mainly to recycle overtasks and jammer. but force-finishing something is better done by theseus.

for Bast/Macha, the idea is that she is a single-time upgrade doubles as a unit. but I changed the effect to somewhat mimic spore, since it's close to what I'm intending.

for the others, I'm editing it. once again, thanks and i'll visit the chat once i finished the edit.

EDIT 1: Finished editing the main post. added Sea's fixes, a few renaming to match the naming scheme better, fixed a MASSIVE problem in Horus's effect, and added description to give the basic idea about what they are supposed to do(well, mostly).
