Can I go over 20 Health Points?
Indeed, there is no limit to the amount of HP players and Permanents with HP can have.
Permanents can't be channeled? How can I use them as components?
We invite you to have a look at the text box on the bottom left of page 13 in the rulebook.
How does “Transmutable” work exactly?
The "Transmutable" Keyword is just like if the spell had an additional term in its name.
Taking Sprouted seed as an example, which has “Transmutable: Drop. it's treated as if it was named "Sprouted seed drop".
This additional term is valid all the time, whether your spell is activated, prepared, channeled, in your hand, deck, discard pile, or at any other moment.
I see that a card has an obvious drawback to it. Why would I play that?
This may very well be an additional cost to balance another great strength the card has.
If you think the card has only negative effects (like Delayed fate or Knowledge ritual for instance), it may very well be a blessing in disguise. Some decks may benefit greatly from what may seem like a hindrance at first.
Is there any further information on how cards work with each other?
Of course there is! We advise you to check the card database by following this link:
What’s the deal with “Inner circle”? Isn’t it way too strong?
Indeed it is! Inner Circle is a collector’s card that is banned from competitive play. It is a simple token of our gratitude towards players who believed in the project from the very beginning.
Though nothing prevents you from playing it with your friends as a quick joke.
“Turn one, Inner Circle, I win.”
“Ah! I should’ve seen that coming.”
There are pre-constructed decks for all 4 elements in the base box, but none for Mineral and Arcane. Do you have any recommendations?
Indeed we do. When you open the expansion, the first 40 cards of the pack constitute a valid pre-constructed deck. (Your 40 card pack should end with 2 rituals).
If you want exact deck lists though, they are available on the following link:
Just scroll to Arcane and Mineral and it will be displayed at the top of these sections.
I think my preconstructed deck is too strong / not strong enough.
When creating the preconstructed decks, we triend to balance the 3 following factors:
- Easy to learn
- Balanced against each others
- Able to teach you the concept of each element
Moreover, Mage Noir being a deckbuilding game, we would have spoiled the interest of the game by giving you already optimized decks. It is part of the pleasure of the game to imagine, create and try out new optimized and original decks.
That being said, if you want advices or examples of more efficient decks, we invite you to ask on our discord server!
There isn’t anything on https://magenoir.com/solo yet, even though it’s written on the solo mode rulesheet.
Yeah, it’s still a work in progress though so it’s not available (yet!). We’ll just have to ask for your patience on that one while we’re taking care of it.
