The Finisher

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/argentsagatcg/argent-saga-trading-card-game

Argent Saga from games-maker ARG is a new game with a very popular Kickstarter and an ever-increasing following thanks to Gen Con that's just come out. Problem is, they're one set in and we're already hearing they have a metagame problem. Stop me if you've heard this one: they have issues with a lack of graveyard interaction, an overpowered creature in a graveyard-based deck is a main culprit, and a box-topper as one of the most powerful cards in the game. Now, we Magic folks are fortunate that we can survive a Saviors of Kamigawa or three, but it's tougher for the new kids on the block. So tell me: what advice would you give an Argent Saga fan hoping their game can keep on truckin' past their second set?
