Dont think there is anyone think that this is a fun card that is good for the game, so I wont bother to argue the point.

Suggested fix:

1. Make new card.
2. Allow more actions.
3. Make more expensive to cast.

I like the idea a lot :P But it could probably be better implemented. How about making it cost Glory to play? Maybe even drain one Glory every turn for the caster?

I actually like this card. It changes the rules in a way that's interesting to me: instead of worrying about flux and cards, like I usually do, I have to consider a completely different bottleneck. It's refreshing.

Of course, like all game-altering effects, I'd like this to be the exception, rather than the rule. So, if it becomes too prevalent, it should be slightly nerfed so as to keep it in check. I'm not sure this is currently the case - I don't think I see it in even 10% of my games (and I usually play rush, which is just the deck people want to Overclock).

If it is decided that the card does need a nerf, I think raising the limit to 3 actions might make it less extreme. However, there's a big difference between 2 and 3 actions, so in that case I'd suggest also lowering the cost.

But I'd be sad to see the card removed completely.

I love this card, even when it's not in my decks. Overclock is great for both interruptions and lockdowns. I say leave it as it is. And who knows, it's effect is a double-edge to most players.

at four flux, overclock is already pretty expensive to use -- as Illithid suggested in another post (re: treetop dominion), global enchantments are especially vulnerable. that being said, if this card were to be nerfed, I'd suggest making it two actions per turn after overclock is cast. this would prevent the default surprise tactic of letting opponent play, passing, letting opponent play again, and casting overclock, ending opponents turn and scoring a free move.

Agreed. Otherwise it's pretty good.

Suggested fix:

Each action taken after the first two, oponent gets one glory

I like this "soft" approach to the action limit.

I'm wondering how powerful this would be in conjunction with Heat Wave, though.

you are right. probably not a good idea, but could work if the caster wasnt allowed to take more that two actions and the oponent could do it at the cost of caster getting one glory

Hmmm, but then that forces different strateges from both sides. I'd like it if both sides experienced the same problems (2 Extra Flux to opponent IMHO is another good alternative to 1 Glory).
