For The Throne — Brews For Your Pre-Set 3 Blues

For The Throne — Brews For Your Pre-Set 3 Blues

Spoiler season is here again! The Dusk Road cards have started flowing in and the set is looking to be very exciting. While I, unfortunately, do not have a card to spoil today, I do have some fun and interesting decks for you to play for the next few weeks until the set drops. All of these decks are intended for ranked ladder. I cannot guarantee all of these decks are good, though they are all fun, with some of them being much…

For The Throne — Worlds Wildcard Top 8 With Chakram Skycrag

For The Throne — Worlds Wildcard Top 8 With Chakram Skycrag

The Worlds Wildcard tournament is over, wrapping up the ETS seasonal events for the year sans the World Championships. I did not win, meaning I will not be going to worlds—a fairly bitter feeling after having been so close for so many months. However, I did have a great 6-0 run in the Swiss portion of the tournament and made Top 8 with Skycrag, a tournament feat that hadn’t been done before. Before this tournament, I had been working on…

What’s The Play? Ep. 1: Do You Attack?

Welcome to the first “What’s the Play?”, where we discuss what choice the player should make. In this first example, the choice is not one that leads to lethal. Instead, it’s more of a theoretical debate as to which play is correct. (In our actual game, the choice didn’t end up mattering; this is about the times where it would.) The choice is for TonyGeeeee, playing a fairly standard Traditional Armory list, vs. me, Paradox, on a Skycrag build. Here…

For The Throne — Evaluating Skycrag

For The Throne — Evaluating Skycrag

Omens of the Past has been out for around a month now. Initially the most popular deck after release, Skycrag has died both in popularity and, seemingly, effectiveness, particularly in the shadow of Burn Queen. Today, we’re going to take a deep look into Skycrag and evaluate its strengths, its weaknesses, and if (or perhaps when) it is better or worse than Burn Queen and other Stonescar aggro decks. Rather than picking apart a particular decklist, I’m going to instead look…
