Mysterious Past

This is a foundation from the SNK set Fortune & Glory, released as a support card of K'.



  • Difficulty: 2
  • Control: 5
  • Block Modifier: +1 Low
  • Resource Symbols: Chaos, Fire
  • Effect: E: Your attack with damage 2 or less gets +2 damage. Only playable if you have 2 or more attacks in your card pool.

K' R Commit: Before your opponent makes a control check to play an attack with damage greater than its difficulty, that check gets -1.


This is kind of a sibling to Cold and Haughty. Same kind of effects, same resource symbols, same difficulty and control. However, it is arguably a better card. At 2 difficulty, it is not hard to play, and with a control of 5, you won't be disappointed with a control check with it. With only two resource symbols, it's going to be harder to play cards, but they're two of K's most used, so it's not that much of a drawback. A low block of 1 rounds out its stats nicely.

When it comes to effects, the first one has a couple of restrictions, such as having to have one other attack in your card pool to use it, (not too bad,) and damage of 2 or less, (useful in many decks, especially K',) and you get 2 more damage without a commit. (Confirmation needed, see Discussion.) The other effect is where this card shows that it's meant for K' The damage has to be higher than the difficulty, but most cards are that don't have crazy effects or are a throw. So, tap it, -1 to the check. Stack it and you're good to go.
