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

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: Justice

Justice has always been one of the best factions in the game. How does it fare in Defiance? Constructed Reviews: Fire | Time | Justice | Primal | Shadow | Multifaction This is my rating scale.

Paradox Defiance Constructed Set Review: Time

It’s time for Time! 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.

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…

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. However, I think it’s gotten especially hard as we’ve gained more powerful options that completely change the way we play the game. 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…

For The Throne — Guide To Beating The FOA Metagame

For The Throne — Guide To Beating The FOA Metagame

With every new set, there are growing pains. Old strategies die out, new ones are born, and some are made more powerful than before. And while some changes are more gentle… …Some take a little bit more getting used to. I am loving The Fall of Argenport so far, but I can see why some initial reactions have been a bit visceral. The set has given us the most powerful batch of cards since the original Empty Throne set, and adapting has not been…

For The Throne — A New Era With Fall Of Argenport

For The Throne — A New Era With Fall Of Argenport

Things are changing in Myria. I’m not quite sure we’re experiencing an end of days, but we’re definitely seeing a beginning of new times. Fall of Argenport seems to have some new design directions, as well as a greater emphasis on things we have seen in the recent past. We now have a good idea of what the set is about and so far, it looks like a very important set with a lot of playables, splashy cards, great mechanics, and the…
