CCDD 20210721 - Feigned Death

Looking at other potential keywords to bring back. Purely in terms of name, Conspire is a great fit for the flavor of the set. Mechanically it was kind of a whiff. It's just difficult enough to pull off that you can't reliably do it often, but it reads like it would be easier to do. This results in a lot of feel-bad plays, even when the effect is perfectly serviceable without the copy. I could image a 5-10 card cycle of hybrid common spells carrying it.

CCDD 20210720 - Promising Swindler and Bounty Bolt

Starting to think about which mechanics would be useful to include as a returning mechanic for my Heist Movie set. Renown seems like it might be a good place to start - thieves and charlatans can gain a bit of notoriety. The biggest strike against it is that, to play in the trope space, being recognizable in the heist world is a bit of double edged sword, as you have people paying attention to you when you need to be inconspicuous. Translating that into mechanics means finding ways to punish renown, which is not a great recipe for a mechanic like that.
