Hunger of marduk has to be played before range, telegraphing your intentions.


Can you specify the scenario where this is relevant?

Without having to go in some corner cases scenario :

I block, I play hunger of Marduk, the opposing play S:CE
vs
I block, I don't play anything until my opponent chose his strike and if it is S:CE I chose either to cycle my card I want to be rid of or I keep my ressource in my hand

I am in combat, I play Hunger of Marduk, the opposing play Immortal Grapple before strike and my card already played is useless
vs
I am in combat, the opposing play immortal grapple, I keep my ressources in my Hand to be used later.

Now could you specify the scenario where you would rather have a Hunger of Marduk vs a Theft of Vitae (outside of playing additional strikes).

(Yes, there is Thought Betrayed which I saw played a couple of times in nearly 20 years of playing VtES and Evil Eye which see more play but I would say about at least 95% less than S:CE)

To play Devils Advocate (as I am in general on your side, that Hunger of Marduk has a very special niche in where it edges out over theft of vitae, wich is Additinal strikes):
Charismatic Aura, Hall of Mirrors, the Jones, Supernatural resistance are all cards that cancel strike cards. albeit less strongly then evil eye. (An I only ever saw Evil eye and Charismatic Aura see any play)

Well, yes, those cards exist.

Anad in the case of Charismatic Aura, When I saw this card played the vampires playing it had it at superior and so in this case it would be moot ^^

The thing make me have a "tiny " rant , is that the Banu are {again} the clan with lesser tools. :(
The best thing we can do we Thaumaturgy is the new rush and Magic of the smith. [for the Heart and maybe a Sniper rifle koz of the 2nd tradition].

When i see the others pre constructed decks gonna be release, really i feel sad for the Banu Haqim.

Kassims power are so ... weird for a justicar. And why a 9 cap ? The Banu don't deserve the same weapon as the other Camarilla clan ? 

I heard the other arguments that " it's a new release , wait the other cards " , "Quietus was bad in combat "
I'm agree about BCP should design the same lore for the V5 vtes as the V5 RPG.
But why Ministry , Brujah and later for sure Gangrel got better design and card AGAIN in the game.

i 'dont get it. :(

Do we have to wait other extension release or kickstarter to have some new ritual ? or new Banu cards ?
For the moment the only thing i see with this clan is an Anarch combat deck .
And some pshift deck.

Maybe rush/ S&B  deck with perfect clarity ?

And the retribution will finally help Assamites, with Quietus, combat to make more GW.

for the other things , i' m disapointed. 
It's my personal point of view.

Comparing this to guns though…

Guns are in play, your intentions are pretty well telegraphed :-)
