Sorry for my bad english, im mexican and im not practice much this language.
First to all: Congratulations, this TCG its a nice idea and the academic intention its very good.
Im a ex-TCG Player, such as pokemon, Yugioh, Magic the Gattering, Mitos y Leyendas -latin american TCG Game more popular- and i want propose are game modality like a "fight between yours and me animals" for Phylo, i want to aggregate some rules to the game for this be more dinamic and integrate more feedback between both player.
Basically, i want to add some features to some animals and some plantas, like "Intimidation", "call of the herd", "poison", "hard skin", "horn" and so on. this features issue the fight between animals both players. Also, add some event cards that can be used in turn of a player and too in the turn of other player, like "Countered card" like "sunny time", "rain", "earthquake", "darkness of a cavern" and so on.
for all of this, i want to know if exist a possibility to change the existing animal cards and add thats elements i suggest.
Thanks so much and wait for yours answer.
