Paradox Defiance Constructed Set Review: Multifaction and Factionless

Paradox Defiance Constructed Set Review: Multifaction and Factionless

Our final stop: Multifaction and factionless cards! The order of cards will be how they appear in the card collection, with the exception of the cyle of Tokens, Cargo, and Merchants, which get to start our review. Constructed Reviews: Fire | Time | Justice | Primal | Shadow | Multifaction This is my rating scale. It is highly similar to other set reviews from other card games, with considerations for Eternal. Note that cards intended mostly for market usage see a…

Paradox Defiance Constructed Set Review: Shadow

It is Shadow’s turn, and we have a lot of interesting things going on here. Constructed Reviews: Fire | Time | Justice | Primal | Shadow | Multifaction This is my rating scale. It is highly similar to other set reviews from other card games, with considerations for Eternal. Note that cards intended mostly for market usage see a rating comparable to normal cards due to how frequently Markets are accessed in normal games. For the constructed review, I won’t talk…

Paradox Defiance Constructed Set Review: Fire

Paradox Defiance Constructed Set Review: Fire

Defiance is here, which means it’s time for a set review! For the first pass, I’ll only be rating cards on their ability in constructed (Ranked ladder and 75+ card tournament play.)  I will also be doing a limited set review organized in a very similar fashion, which will have links below once finished. For this review, I will assume you know what the mechanics work. However, I will talk about their impact when it matters (expect a good discussion…

Envoy Tournament Report

Envoy Tournament Report

Hello, my name is Exline and I’m here today to write a guest column about some of my experiences during the test tournament “Envoys,” which I won this past weekend.

Which isn’t a huge surprise, considering I’ve been playing on and off since around the time of open beta in December 2016, and haven’t participated in…

For The Throne — A Second Look At How We Build Decks

For The Throne — A Second Look At How We Build Decks

Deck building in Eternal has always been difficult for two reasons: the large size of the deck, and the high number of playable cards.

The two most important things—Crests and Markets—have had the largest impact. Between those and the addition of new powerful cards and a more fleshed-out design direction as the game matures, it’s worth talking about…
