This is a submission to the Mythos Busters competition to build a deck that uses a card that is under-rated or under played. For anyone who doesnt know what this is, You can find the competition episode here:

Massive thanks to the Fantastic Mythos Busters Podcast for all they do. I have been listening to your cast for years and the community you've built on the discord is just fantastic. For anyone who doesnt know about the Mythos Busters, you can find them at these links:

Anyway! On with the deck!

Back in the Core set there was a card called:

Drawn to the Flame

I consider this to be underplayed since, well.... is it possible to have enough of Drawn to the Flame. It is just such an insightful source of information in the Arkham LCG sphere. If i had the time, I would play Drawn to the Flame. All day, every day. Wouldnt you?

Its under-rated since, well, can you rate it high enough? I think that if anything Drawn to the Flame gets less attention than it deserves. Certainly despite being considerably better than its competition, people do still play the alternatives from time to time.

And the card? Well - its also pretty decent. I mean thats 2 automatic clues for one action and shouting the words "I love Drawn to the Flame" at the top of your voice as you do so is only mandatory if you are in the same room as a mythos busters cast member.

That said, if you could repeatedly use Drawn to the Flame over and over you could probably get away without needing to use regular investigation methods and you would likely be bringing in the clues at a decent rate. Of course with Sefinas high and you are probably dealing able to deal with encounter checks fairly well, evade off enemies as needed, or Backstab them with ease.

-

GREAT - HOW MANY TIMES CAN WE PLAY IT?

Drawn to the Flame can be played via the following methods:

= 9 plays in total. Each of these can be Double, Doubled!:

THAT'S UPTO 18 PLAYS!

-

ACTION REPLAY!

2x Time Warp lets you see that beautiful Drawn to the Flame moment over and over again! with Double, Double that can be twice! And with De Vermis Mysteriis you can replay Time Warp maybe getting you up to 8 replays! Oh the joys!

THAT'S UPTO 26 PLAYS!

-

HEY, SOMEONE ELSE HAS A COPY!

But they`ll miss out on our wonderful Double, Double bonus! Oh no!

WERE UPTO 30 PLAYS! WOO!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

  1. HOW DO WE FIND ALL THESE TOOLS TO PLAY DTTF ALL DAY? - LOTS OF DRAW:
  2. HOW DO WE DEAL WITH ALL THESE ENCOUNTER CARDS?
  3. WHAT IF WE DRAW AN ENEMY?
  4. YOU SAID TIME WARP ADDS PLAYS - BUT YOU WONT GET ANY MORE CLUES... WHY BOTHER...
    • If you think this is about clues you may have missed the point. #stokethebloodfeud.
  5. AND HOW ARE THESE QUESTIONS "FREQUENTLY ASKED"? YOU WROTE THEM BEFORE YOU PUBLISHED THE DECK!
    • Er ... im sorry we seem to have run out of time. Interview is over... I need to be on my way.

Haha! Genius!! Hope you win mate!

2 natural play 3

Jul 28, 2019 soakman · 29

If I had to choose one, I would choose this one. Because I can't get enough Drawn to the Flame. Also. Sefina.

I also enjoy the inclusion of "You Owe Me One" for a variety of reasons. One of which begs the question, just how many encounter cards does Sef have to pull before you owe her one?

Jul 28, 2019 Cuherdir · 51

2* natural play

3* painted world

4* quantum flux (of course you play quantum only while having both dttf in the discard pile)

2* De Vermis Misteriis

-> using Double Double, thats a Total of 22 times

Counting You owe me one

2* natural play

4* quantum flux

-> Double Double total: 12 (your allies surely will be happy to keep their hands full of Drawn to the flame copies as you're so gratiously helping them drawing cards)

You can't replay Drawn to the flame twice with a Time Warp using Double Double so I'm not counting those. You certainly can use Dayana Esperance though.

2* natural play

4* quantum flux

4* added for Dayana

8* added for Dayana using quantum flux

-> Total of 18

So I do think you can play it 52 times without having to take a single point of Horror due to reshuffling your deck for a total of 34 encounter cards resolving or 68 clues gathered.

(the first comment is due to mobile being a pain, I don't know how to delete that one)

I bow to your maths @Cuherdir! Nice work!

Though sadly Dayana Esperence is 3 xp and slightly out of reach for Sefina Rousseau.... unless we can grab her with a cheeky "You owe me one!" of course!

Also - Cheers @Brownloaf & @soakman

I see that Double, Double is Exceptional but not Unique. This means we can grab anothet investigator's Double, Double with You Owe Me One and then proceed to Triple, Triple all our Drawn to the Flames.

Jul 28, 2019 mattastrophic · 952

If Triple, Triple isn't enough for you, we can employ Sign Magick to open up You Owe Me One an a third Double, Double, enabling Double, Double Double, Doubled Drawn to the Flames.

Jul 28, 2019 Cuherdir · 51

@mattastrophicYou're thinking big, I like you

Jul 29, 2019 StartWithTheName · 15478

Hey. We also have a handslot free for Sign Magick for spot of Quadruple, quadruple. Or in fact a fourth copy would be better than De Vermis Mysteriis. The main problem being I don’t know what comes after quadruple... fivetupple?

Jul 29, 2019 masomase · 552

Hahaha. This is a high level of satire - well done!!

Jul 30, 2019 Padde · 1

I think its quintuple, sextuple, septuple then octuple

Aug 02, 2019 unitled · 1570

Drawn to the Flame? Pretty niche card if you ask me, I can't even remember what it does.

Aug 03, 2019 StartWithTheName · 15478

@unitled, it draws an encounter card. Or to put it another way, it goes looking for trouble

Aug 03, 2019 Cuherdir · 51

@unitled Many scenarios contain one or two enemies with victory points, unfortunately Sefina lacks access to On the Hunt so Drawn to the Flame is there to substitute that and goe through the encounter deck faster.

Aug 03, 2019 Django · 2055

Not sure how the following influences the total, but should add more plays:

Aug 03, 2019 Django · 2055

Or go nearly unlimited by building the deck with only assets except 2x Drawn to the Flame and Ace in the Hole. Keep going so long you can take the horror from shuffling your 3 card discard and mythos cards.

Perfect! I’ve started taking this through the Carcosa campaign with Roland!

Aug 26, 2019 StartWithTheName · 15478

hehe - I cant tell if your kidding @solidoak, so just in case youre not i feel i should warn you this is a joke deck intended as a bit of a silly dig at the Mythos Busters crew.

I have no idea how it would perform as a deck.

Aug 26, 2019 StartWithTheName · 15478

They have a comedy "blood feud" with their friends on the Drawn the The Flame Podcast. Its a bit of an old joke now, but the competition was too good of an opportunity to pass up.

Of course if you are sat at a table with one of the MB team, Thats a different issue. The deck may then be ideal, and I do encourage you to say "I love drawn to the flame" every time you play it.

Sep 04, 2019 solidoak · 1

I’m not kidding! And it’s not terible! Do you know how good Drawn to the Flame is in Boundary Beyond? I know 5 out of 6 paths!

Sep 04, 2019 StartWithTheName · 15478

@solidoak. Great! as long as ive not sabotaged your game im happy!
