How do you think Ghosts work? I understand that their whole
thing is trying to keep less cards I just want to know more.

Probably abilities with things like, "If you have less than X cards, do ability". Also, I'd guess playing actions from the discard a la M:tG's Flashback mechanic.

I could also see a "For every X cards in your discard pile..." type of action card. Or a minion whose power grows as your hand size gets smaller (sort of like what Matt said).

maybe more like mtg's Madness ability...

A Ghost action might say: "All players discard 3 cards from their hand."

While a Ghost minion could read: "When this card is discarded on your turn, play it as an extra minion instead of putting it into your discard pile."

plus mtg's Threshold ability...

A Ghost minion that says: "When there are 10 or more cards in your discard pile, you may play this minion from your hand or discard pile as an extra minion."

Ghost minion: "This minion hets +1 for each Ghost minion in your discard pile."
Ghost action: "Destroy a minion with power less than or equal to the number of Ghost actions cards in your discard pile."
Ghost action: " Ongoing: Play a minion from any player's discard pile and attach this action to it. If this action is destroyed or discarded, destroy this minion. When this minion is destroyed, return it to its owner's discard pile." (Animate dead)

I was thinking about that too. Cards that have extra abilities if discarded. I also predict something like, "Play this action on a base. Ongoing: Each time you discard a card from your hand you may destroy a minion with power 2 or less on this base."

These type of "when discarded" abilities would help make Ghost/Wizard a playable combo instead of having the Wizard draw power completely shut down the Ghost abilities (thereby making it an always-lose combo).
