Sniff the Mechanical Flower
I made up a story as I play tested. Each debate (battle) was best 2 of 3. Most rounds ended within 10 mins.
Debate 1. Powder vs Sniff
Powder went first storing up some energy and socking Sniff in the face. He countered and that ended Powder's turn. Sniff equipped the Portable Battery Pack and stored some energy. Sniff smacked Powder while she was drained from her last attack. Powder drew a monster and she equipped her 2 skills "Cherry Blade" and "Cherry Shield". She also stored up energy and summoned the monster Sweeper II. She activated cherry blade which destroyed 1 of her energy but Sweeper II absorbed it making it stronger. Powder sliced through Sniff for some major damage, unfortunately for her, that was her big play. Sniff ended up storing enough energy to spam his mirror break with the help of his battery pack. Powder lacked the mobility to avoid it and was quickly defeated.
Sniff started out and drew into the lion's share of energy. He stored some and the two traded blows. Powder summoned Sweeper I and equipped cherry bomb. Stored 1 energy and she attacked Sniff. Sniff wasn't too happy about that and stored another energy. He threw a "Junk Grenade" but it blew up in his...petals? He attacked Powder and ended his turn. Powder stored another energy and summoned a Sweeper II. Sweeper I and Powder both attacked. Powder used "Sweeper Raid" and won the roll, forcing Sniff to discard his hand. Sniff's game went down hill, unable to store 1 more energy for his mirror break and Powder slowly beat him down.
It started with Powder and Sniff beating the snot outta each other, both drawing dead stuff. Powder was losing with 2 HP remaining, sweeper I and II summoned, and only enough energy to use cherry shield or blade but not both. Sniff was in a very good position, 6 HP remaining, plenty of energy, battery pack and surge protector equipped. Sniff was a powerhouse! It was Powder's turn and she drew Desert Raven. She summoned it but she lacked the damage to kill Sniff in 1 turn. She lacked mobility and knew Sniff will mirror break next turn. Thinking hard, she could only cherry shield to protect herself and pray the next card would save her. The newly summoned Desert Raven nudged her shoulder and squawked. Powder suddenly remember about the raven's ability. She fed 2 cards to the raven and it gave her 1 energy and 1 movement card, JUST what she needed! She used cherry blade and Sweeper II absorbed the destroyed energy. Powder, Sweeper I, and II attacked Sniff but he survived the assault. Sniff mirror break but Powder dodged it! This was it, sniff didn't have enough HP to survive another turn. Powder and company attacked Sniff and defeated him. Powder was so lucky Desert Raven showed when it did or she'd be screwed.
Debate 3 was so cool. It really was a close game. Powder had almost no options while Sniff seemed to be king of the grid. In the end, Powder's resourcefulness and cunning beat Sniff. Ill write the next battle in another journal.
