Crossed Souls: Portmanteaulogoy

Sometimes, seeing a certain word in a card name can tell you what it does without even needing to look at the text box. “Pot of” Spell Cards, for example, let someone draw 2 cards, be it you, your opponent, or your Deck in the case of Pot of Generosity, with Pot of Duality being the exception. Jar of Avarice is a card that takes words you’re already familiar with and combines them in a new way, and the result does almost exactly what you’d expect it to! It’s actually better than expected.
