Reshuffle-giving players infinite decks

I just fought a level 25+ life as a level 20 Ice. The fight lasted well over an hour.

I don't use reshuffle, but this girl used it at least 4 times, and had all of her spells back.

She sent out about 10 Sprite Guardians, 10 Cloaked Life dispels, 7 Seraphs, and countless cloaked tower shields and Spirit Armors.

She and her minions managed to get through all 3 of my ice armors and 1 Frozen Armor.

I used 2 Shatter cards to remove the shields, but she just put them right back up!

Is anyone else smelling an exploit?

It is not an exploit. However, it can be frustrating used in this manner and is almost exclusively the result of the continuous use of Reshuffle. Former thread on long matches:

I doubt its an exploit, but it is not very fair. I think the spirit armor is overpowered, and should not be able to be used in PVP. It just makes battle too hard. As am myth student, though, I find minions very useful, but they are a bit unfair.
Reshuffle, however, is also overused pvp. :?

Wow, I even use a few treasure reshuffles on my level 10, it's just part of the game. Any good upper level player uses reshuffle, especially on the small decks many run. I see nothing wrong with Reshuffle, as without it you cannot multiply the cards that you need, in these long battles.
So, for me, reshuffle is absolutely needed in the game, and at almost any level.

So, you've obviously been stalling out the last card so you wouldn't lose? Because you'd most likely run out of cards after 4 Reshuffles from your opponent.

Most people forget that reshuffle was designed to reshuffle discarded cards back into your deck not used cards. I do not understand why developers decided to change reshuffle to what it is today (reshuffle all cards). I personally like the original game developers. The newer team just is not in touch with the community.

They were talking about the person they were fighting.

@Junebug838 Yeah I hate those kinds of people. Even worse that, people that put all heals and shields in their deck! But there's just no way to stop those people is there :/
