file Low-impact flavor cards in starters

I always thought it's sad that quite numerous equipment and retainers are mostly unused.
IMHO the card slot occupation and taking action to get them is already a fair enough price and wonder if the Equip and Recruit actions should not have added "Once per turn, when a minion performs equip / recruit action, he or she unlocks". Once per turn to avoid obvious spam.
Cards that already do have similar unlock effects might need to be rebalanced, but it would make equipment and retainers a bit more usable, I think. Same idea might even be extended to allies.


 

actually, I don't think it would really make less used equipment to be used but good equipment to be more played.

And so, everybody will play Heart of Nizchetus, Tasha Morgan and JS Simons etc...

 

So no change to current meta, where most decks have Heart?

Sabbat.Black Hand Shakar: Lech loathe ranged weapons. Once each action, he may burn 1 blood to become Camarilla Prince of Krakow until the end of the action.

"Heart of Nizchetus, Tasha Morgan and JS Simons etc..." these are all unique. Good luck stuffing your deck with multiple unique cards that "everyone will play" - it's not that obvious choice, at least not for me.

I think new player acquisition is aided by fun flavorful cards (Sabbat vamp with Abbot and a bat, malks recruiting muddled vampire hunter,etc) as long as they seem to make some impact on the first few games AND don't convolute what they already learn with thier deck. Cutting in Alastors and Assault rifles to a lawfirm deck with a justicar might create memories, but why add rush combat to bleed, vote, block when you're already trying to understand the other things?

Definitely something to consider.

There is a non-trivial difference between unique cards and non-unique cards.
