Is "Goo Bottles" the new "Black Lotus"?

Goo Bottles ( https://loom.games/card/017/serial/1 ) reminds me a lot of "Black Lotus" in Magic: the Gathering. If anything it is even better, because the goo/mana is there to stay.

Do you think it is too strong?
Should it be +1 goo?
Or is the hand card penalty high enough to make it well balanced?

I think it's very powerful, even at +1 goo it would be comparable to the effect playable cards like Rampant Growth in MTG or Wild Growth in Hearthstone, only it cost 0. However, it's still early and they'll probably make a bunch of balance changes at some point.

Goo Bottles being the new "black lotus" would imply the balance team is insane enough to let that card go through to live as is with no rework. It's one of those must mill for ramp cards that can significantly change the dynamics of the first few turns, to the point where aside from already being a must have in deck it's enough to consider changing your faction.

I agree! It should and most likely will get nerved! I realize the short gameplay video we got isn't representative (lucky draw) but it demonstrates what can happen with a card like this. However, there is one crucial difference to MtG and the likes. -1 card on your hand is a much higher penalty in ZB, since your starting hand is smaller.

You must also remember that in MtG half your hand is (on average) lands. So the number of cards you can really play is not that different.
