A century ago, Discwielders patrolled the skies, securing the outer provinces of the empire. When the second emperor passed, many gave up their Rocket Shields to not get caught in the aftermath. Some of these discs, however, survived the decades, hidden away, waiting for a suited Gemwielder to be taken to the skies once again.
Not only does the Rocket Shield’s passive ability allow you to play power costed gem cards more reliably early, it also provides you with a steady stream of power throughout the entire game. The price for this headstart is a power hungry starting deck. Efficient power generation and power expenditure therefore become key features of the discwielding playstyle.
