In this forum you will find all cards that COULD be added to the game but aren't because they don't work 100%.

Luminarch Ascension (ZEN) Not Supported

Post by blender2005 »

Very good

I'm creating this letter, but not if the code is fine, if I can help somebody, I'd appreciate it.

Code: Select all

[card]
name=Luminarch Ascension
auto==@each endofturn notlifelose:may counter(0/0,1,Quest)
kicker={1}{W}
auto=kicker this(counter{0/0,4,Quest}):token(Angel,Creature Angel,4/4,white flying)
text=At the beginning of each opponent's end step, if you didn't lose life this turn, you may put a quest counter on Luminarch Ascension. (Damage causes loss of life.) -- {1}{W}: Put a 4/4 white Angel creature token with flying onto the battlefield. Activate this ability only if Luminarch Ascension has four or more quest counters on it.
mana={1}{W}
type=Enchantment
[/card]

Some problems:

The AI accumulates counters regardless of being damaged or not. The AI also does not buy Angel token creatures.

I experimented by moving the buy token feature of the code to the first part and nothing did alter anything.

I modified a bit the card:

Code: Select all

[card]
name=Luminarch Ascension
auto=@each endofturn notlifelose:may counter(0/0,1,Quest)
auto={1}{W}:aslongas this(counter{0/0,4,Quest}):token(Angel,Creature Angel,4/4,white flying)
text=At the beginning of each opponent's end step, if you didn't lose life this turn, you may put a quest counter on Luminarch Ascension. (Damage causes loss of life.) -- {1}{W}: Put a 4/4 white Angel creature token with flying onto the battlefield. Activate this ability only if Luminarch Ascension has four or more quest counters on it.
mana={1}{W}
type=Enchantment
[/card]
Well, it's just my version of your work. I did it because using the kicker is called "workaround". Works pretty fine! I was trying to do it a few days ago but i never thought that "notlifelose" thing existed.

About the AI problems: The AI currently is pretty dumb, cannot do several things like using activated abilities (buy angel tokens) or make descisions. It chooses targets randomnly.

The new coding is MUCH better now. The AI actually spends mana to buy more than one angel token when it can. I put together a deck based around this card that I will post shortly. Nice work!

auto=@each endofturn notlifelose:may counter(0/0,1,Quest)
auto={1}{W}:aslongas this(counter{0/0,4,Quest}):token(Angel,Creature Angel,4/4,white flying)

these 2 lines are not coded correctly
we dont have a way to tell if you DIDNT lose life yet....

auto=this(counter{0/0.4.Quest}){1}{W}:token(Angel,Creature Angel,4/4,white flying)
this is the coding for the 2nd line.

Lol that's true... I was comming here to post that (there's no way to know if we didn't lose life each turn)... I was testing the card with several damage prevention spells, and when i found even after receiving damage the counters accumulate...

Anyway, zethfox's 2nd line is even better.

Thanks for the help

With your answer I have been so code:

Code: Select all

[card]
name=Luminarch Ascension
auto=@each endofturn:may counter(0/0,1,Quest)
auto=this(counter{0/0.4.Quest}){1}{W}:token(Angel,Creature Angel,4/4,white flying)
text=At the beginning of each opponent's end step, if you didn't lose life this turn, you may put a quest counter on Luminarch Ascension. (Damage causes loss of life.) -- {1}{W}: Put a 4/4 white Angel creature token with flying onto the battlefield. Activate this ability only if Luminarch Ascension has four or more quest counters on it.
mana={1}{W}
