I created a rule book for a CCG my brother and I plan on making, please tell me if i need to change anything:

rules:

Rules for "Guardians of the Elements"

How to Win:

In the Guardians of the Elements TCG, you control a Guardian. Your Guardian is the leader of your party who fights along side his Minions. The cards you play will allow your to fight with your Guardian and Minions, add Minions to your party, and complete quests.

The object of the game is to defeat your opponents before they defeat you. Over the course of the game, your Guardian and Minions will deal damage to your opponents Guardians and Minions, and that damage is permanent unless it is healed. If your Guardian takes damage equal to or greated than his or her health, you are out of the game.

You are also out of the game if you run out of cards in your deck and can't draw another card, so you must defeat your opponents before that happens.


The Golden Rule: Whenever a card’s text contradicts a game rule, the card wins. For example, you get only one Battle Phase each turn, but if a card says, “After this phase, there is an additional Battle Phase followed by an additional Action Phase.” For a turn, it overrides the rule that you get only one combat phase per turn.

Game Mat:

The game mat consists of 14 card slots. The mat is a 7x2 box. The top left slot is for the Guardian, you can only have one Guardian in a deck. The next five slots to the right are for Minions and Kings. The top right slot is the Discard Pile, these cards are considered Defeated. The bottom left is the Attack Deck. This deck holds all of your Attack Cards. The next 5 slots to the right are for your Quests and Barriers. The bottom right is your deck. The deck holds Quests, Barriers, Minions, and Kings.

Game Instructions:

Turn Structure:

Start Phase:
Ready Step - Look over your cards
Draw Step - Draw a card

Action Phase:
Preperation Steps: (Do these in any order)
Place a Creature/Quest (one per turn)
Retreat a Creature (once per turn)
Use Abilities (unlimited)

Battle Phase:
Battle Steps: (do in order)
Commence battle with Minions and Kings (once per creature)
Battle with Guardians (oncer per turn)

End Phase:
End your turn/Complete Quests

Retreating a Creature:

To retreat a Creature you must send cards from the top of your deck to the discard pile that equal the retreat cost of the creature you are retreating. A retreated creature returns to your hand and you then Sneak a creature that is level 1 from your hand, if you do not have a level 1 creature in your hand you cannot retreat.

Battling: How you clear your opponents field!

Battling With Minions and Kings - Select 1 creature on your side of the field to attack with, and 1 of your opponent’s creatures as your attack target, and then declare the attack. If your opponent does not have any creatures on the field, you can attack the Guardian. Play then proceeds to the Damage Step. Afterwards, the attacking player returns to the Battle Step, and repeats this procedure. Each creature you control is allowed 1 attack per turn. You do not have to attack with a monster if you don’t want to. The trick is this, you must attack following the Chain of Command.

Battling with Guardians - Set your hand face down seperate from the field and draw three Attack Cards from your Attack Deck. Select one of the cards and your Guardian gains ATK and Abilities because of that card. Guardians can only attack other Guardians, even if your opponent controls other Creatures.

Chain of Command - You must attack in this order:
1 Minions
2 Kings
3 Guardians

Also, you cannot attack a creature if your opponent controls a Barrier, you cannot attack a King if your opponent controls a Minion, the same applies for Kings and Guardians. You cannot attack a Guardian if your opponent controls a Minion or a King.


Special Conditions: Effects can cause cards to be in a "Special Condition", these conditions do different things.

Posion:
When a Creature is posioned roll a 6 sidded die. The result is how many of its owners turns the Creature remains Posioned. In between turns the Posioned Creature recieves 1 damage.

Paralyse:
Turn the Paralyzed Creature clockwise. If a Creature is Paralyzed, it cannot attack or retreat. Remove the Special Condition Paralyzed during the in-between turns phase if your Creature was Paralyzed since the beginning of your last turn.

Confused
Turn a Confused creature upside down. If a Creature is Confused, you must flip a coin before attacking with that
Creature. If you flip heads, the attack works normally, but if you flip tails, your creature receives the damage it was going to deal and the attack ends without
further effect.

Burned: If a Creature is Burned, it may take damage in-between turns. When a Creature is Burned, put a Burn marker on it. In-between turns, the owner of the Burned Creature flips a coin. If he or she flips tails, the Burned Creature recieves 2 damage.

Asleep: Turn the Creature counterclockwise to show that it is Asleep. If a Creature is Asleep, it cannot attack or retreat. In-between turns, flip a coin. If you flip heads, the Creaure wakes up (turn the card back right-sideup), but if you flip tails, it stays Asleep.

Rush: A Rushed Creature must attacks the opponents Guardian directly, but falls Asleep during the end phase.

Flying: A creature with flying cannot be attacked by another Creature unless they have Flying or are one of the following Damage Types.
Ranged
Arcane

Frozen: A Frozen Creature is flipped upside down. They are considered out of game. In-between turns, flip a coin. If you flip heads, the Creaure wakes up (turn the card back right-sideup), but if you flip tails, it stays Frozen.

Catches:
Any condition is healed if attacked by a Holy Creature
an asleep creature awakens if attacked
a frozen creature is healed if attacked by a Fire creature
a burned creature is healed if attacked by a Frost creature
If a Flying creature is attacked, it is "grounded" and cannot fly for the rest of the duel.
Guardians are unaffected by Special Conditions



Decks:

The Nain Deck contains 20-60 cards and you can only have 2 copy of each card in a deck, and only 1 Guardian.

The Attack Deck contains 20 Cards. (If you run out of attack cards, shuffle your Attack cards from your Discard Pile into your Attack Deck.)


First Turn of the Duel: During the very first turn both players draw 7 cards and play all the cards they can as if it is their first turn but neither player attacks. The the selected "first player" takes his/her second turn.
Terms:

Place - Play a monster from your hand to the field

Sneak - Play onto the field with out being Placed (Kings are Sneaked, not Placed)

I believe this would make a fun game. I like the different types of damage aswell as the many types of damage. Hopefully this is made into an actual game.

Updated! i would like some help though, i will probably be facing copy write issues since most of these ideas came from other card games. I was hoping that i could have some help renaming everything, like the types of cards ect. It would be greatly appreciated!

Pretty neat. I find the decision to make the Nain Deck have a minimum of 20 cards rather interesting and cool. Together with the 2card restriction it probably won't cause any ridiculous crap, while it will force the deckmaker to make decisions on the size of the deck because 20cards will end up decking out rather quickly combined with Retreating.
Fixes/Problems/Whatevers
The Damage Types and Classes are repeated. I see the Damage Types being said twice with the exact same wording, and the Classes being repeated thrice with the exact same wording.
You should probably say that barriers have to be attacked before any other card under "how to read a barrier card".
Questions
Can we have some sample cards? It's kind of hard to judge the strength of things like poison and burn when you don't actually know how much health and attack things have on average.
When you draw from the Attack Deck and choose 1, what happens to the other 2 cards?
The classes sound kinda humanoid-only. Is that intended?
Does this have a medieval theme?(tbh i think a medieval theme would be good)
Archetypes, yes or no?(personally i'd rather see it without them)
Does the Guardian count for the amount of cards in the Nain Deck?(if not, then this sentence is kind of misleading: "The Nain Deck contains 20-60 cards and you can only have 2 copy of each card in a deck, and only 1 Guardian.")
Why is Nain Deck such an awesome name?

The guardian is not in Main deck, they are humonoid, and midevil is good, also, NO ARCHTYPES until the third set of 200 cards perferably.
