Out of all of these, Faie’s BBS is the only one I dislike. A built-in unconditional win con like that makes Faie the only general who can win the lategame simply by running away. I feel that face damage should always cost the use of a resource, such as health or a card from your hand. 1 mana to cast BBS each turn shouldn’t affect Faie’s mana curve in the lategame, making that cost insignificant to me.
However, I have nothing against these other options (eh maybe DeciSpikes). People can forget that going face comes at a price. And that price is the very thing people complain about…you IGNORE the board, and that can easily catch up with you if you can’t kill your opponent in time.
A perfect example is Burn Cass. It has very few ways to answer an established board. Good players take advantage of this inherent flaw of the deck, and as a result, the deck is very weak despite all of the face tools it has.
Face decks tend to be a balancing act. “Can I outpace my opponent’s board if I ignore it?” is the question to keep in mind. If your opponent’s board represents more imminent damage than your deck can push, you can’t go face without losing.
I don’t think it’s too big of a deal as of now to have these face cards. Face decks aren’t dominating the ladder right now. If they become as dominant as Arcanyst Faie was during Ancient Bonds, then we could revisit this concern.
