There is SO much cheating with how close they're sitting to each other.

Inspired by real card game events

I've pretty much made this exact thing happen in an actual collectable card game. Heck, I've done this to greater extremes. I've gained over a thousand life in a single turn in a game that gives you twenty to start with.

This was in a digital version of the game, however, and one reason I prefer digital is because the sort of nonsense my decks get up to is effectively mad science, and beyond my own feeble comprehension.

How exactly do all the card combinations I use work? How would I defend the expected outcome if there was an actual human being sitting across from me? I don't know! I just know I play this, and that, and one of these, and then the thing happens!


5 angels with 4 Health. They don't trigger themselves, but they do trigger each other, so each activates 5 times. 5 * 4 * 6 = 120.

Same deal at 16 Health. 5 * 16 * 6 = 480.

Tedd would have wound up at 37 life if he'd gained 24, so he had 13 left to start with.

So if Tedd had to gain 4 life 4 times before hitting the threshold for the health bonus, so... Subtract the difference in life gained 4 times (which would be 12) from 480?

480 - ((16-4)*4) = 432 gained, so 432 + 13 = 445 total life? Maybe?

Whatever the case, it's better than 37.
