Anthrocon was amazing! We'll have a news post about Anthrocon soon, but in the meantime, let's explore some new Furoticon cards!
Makall is an eager little student of Adept Academy in Vell's End. Some day, he may become a grand conductor!
Makall comes with the basic stats that you use in every game of Furoticon:
* From the normal 40 cards in a Furoticon deck, you may include 0 extra cards.
* You have an opening hand of 6 cards, and your max hand size at the end of your turn is 7 cards.
* From the normal 50 starting stamina, you start with 0 extra stamina.
* You have 10 AP per turn, and it costs 5 AP to draw a card, as well as 1 AP to swing with a Furre and 1 AP to put out with a Furre.
Also, in the upper-right corner, you can see that you can have any of the four genders in your deck.
Start your journey in Vell's End as Makall in the Grand Conductors starter deck!

Makall's training has led him to harness his power far beyond what anyone would have imagined. In just a short year, he ascended to the title of Grand Conductor. At that point, the only conductors stronger than him were Thexa and a scant few dragons.
You can find Makall, Grand Conductor in Fortune at Vell's End booster packs! He now has increased stats:
* From the normal 40 cards in a Furoticon deck, you may include 6 extra cards, for a total of 46 cards.
* Your max hand size at the end of your turn is reduced to 6 cards.
* You may not have any Female, Herm, or Otherkind cards in your deck. (Notice the solitary male symbol in the upper-right corner.)
* Activated skills cost you 1 AP less to play! (But if you're somehow able to play 5 skills in a turn, that's your limit!)
What are some activated skills?
See the skill where Delvi conducts? That's an activated skill -- you pay a cost to get an effect. Now you don't have to pay the 1 AP as a part of that cost!
Ipkoo's ability to bring Furres into the Fellowship is an activated skill -- and it originally cost you 1 AP. Not any more!
The 2 AP cost on Sev's conducting skill is a little expensive. Let's reduce it to 1 AP!
As our final example, Squirrel the Eccentric now charges up your other conductors for 0 AP!
There's a lot more that you can do with Makall, and we'll leave the rest for you to discover. ❤

6 extra cards you say? Cheaper skills you say? I can live with the penalty to the hand size. As for Males, I've always paired them with another gender support them.
I kinda like Ipkoo, eager to share his eagerness. I might be able to work that into a nice play.

That's a good correction, Tax. Since I'm the body of the explanation of this card, it says "you MAY include 6 extra cards". That's a subtle but important distinction.

I feel that it should be noted that the 6 extra cards in a black book owned by Makall, Grand Conductor are mandatory. You may not use Makall, Grand Conductor with a 40-card Furoticon deck, even if said deck is Male-only.

hmm i think i like that fact of having one less max card for the more cards in the deck and less cost for ap skils

@Lafitte @Nezumi12 The gender on a card has no bearing with the pleasure you take as a player. You're always going to take a Furre's highest PE in pleasure. It only restricts what cards you can place in your deck. And, yeah, being forced to play one gender is enough reason to give a player a bigger bonus -- there're less strategies available to said player, and a bit of telegraphing. Someone playing with, say, an Otherkind-only owner is basically saying "I have no treat removal, please gently caress my face."

@Zeneth: My thoughts exactly. It makes me wonder, did they decide the hefty negatives on the previous batch of special owners were too big/discouraging to see them used much? Or do they consider limiting your gender choices to only one to be a bigger negative than we see it as?

Nezumi, Many owners from Strawberry had gender types.
I really like Makall, Grand Conductor. In my opinion he's one of the most powerful owners I've seen. His strengths outweigh his weaknesses... So long as you don't mind playing an all make deck.
Lafitte on Jul 9th, 2014 @ 04:52 PM
@Seppel: My understanding is that owners still take max damage when hit, regardless of the 'gender' of the owner. Is that still true? Because I think that's what Nezumi was getting at. I think....

I find the Student version to be very amusing, but I like the image for Grand Conductor better.
Seppel on Jul 9th, 2014 @ 01:57 PM
@Nezumi: All Owners pre-Tanglebrook use the default stats and can control all genders. :)
Nezumi12 on Jul 9th, 2014 @ 01:36 PM
this is the first time i've seen (or at least noticed) gender types on an owner card. are there reprints of or errata for the older Owners that didn't have Gender types listed?
Lafitte on Jul 9th, 2014 @ 12:53 PM
Holy shit that's a tough owner... I mean, sure, it limits you to only male, but if you were building an all male deck anyway... the rest of the trade off is nothing compared to what you get out of it!

From cute, to powerful . . . and still kinda cute.
