This is just a quick write up, so I don't forget this idea...
I am proposing a change to the Herald and Hero system in HoC. Instead of having these as separate classes, I propose to combine them. Allow Heralds or Heroes to start the game... in effect removing the difference that says Heroes can't start (really the only difference I can see)
This would allow for far more deck builds as it essentially doubles the amount of heralds in each faction.
This change would come with two stipulations:
1]Any herald or hero (now all potentially heralds in this scenario) selected to be the starter, would cost 40 mana for refund purposes in case of death.
2]You would only be allowed to have one copy of the card in your deck. i.e. if I chose Gavyn as my herald, I could only have that copy of him, instead of 4. I could however have 4 Sir Corwin in if I chose as the extra 'heroes', or supplemental heralds that were not started with.
This would additionally cause the starter heralds to see a slight increase in cost to more match the heroes, while the highly overpriced heroes would have a slight decrease... i.e. they would all lay between 45-60 mana, instead of the 40- ~70 mana as they currently stand.
It would balance stuff out, give more deck build possibilities, give people to use more cards that they have even if they don't have heralds as they are currently outside of the starters.
This needs a lot more work, but at least I have it down for now...
It will likely be met with resistance, but I felt it was something that could at least be discussed and tweaked to maybe be something to consider before the game gets out of beta.
