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…

For The Throne — Exclusive FoA Spoiler: Horrifying Helm

For The Throne — Exclusive FoA Spoiler: Horrifying Helm

Greetings, fellow Scions! I, Paradox, have the pleasure of sharing a spoiler with you today. However, after much contemplation, I’ve realized this card would go best with a little dose of our own real world and less so the world of Myria. So settle in, if you wish, for a story.   A few years ago, I was finishing my junior year in college. I was studying philosophy, and like most people who volunteered to read dry books for all hours…

For The Throne — 1st Place With Praxis Midrange at S2 Invitational

For The Throne — 1st Place With Praxis Midrange at S2 Invitational

  Last season, I didn’t qualify for the invitational. That was a miserable feeling for me—I’m very competitive, and last year, I qualified for every invitational after I started to play the game seriously. It was just one rough season, which is completely reasonable. That didn’t make it any easier to swallow. Going into season 2, I told myself I’d not let that happen again if I could afford it. I was determined to never made a bad deck decision…

For The Throne — Best Cards and Deckbuilding For “There Can Only Be One” Event

For The Throne — Best Cards and Deckbuilding For “There Can Only Be One” Event

This weekend is the “There Can Only Be One” event in Eternal, a mode where you bring your own deck but can only have one copy of each non-power card. These types of formats, often referred to as “Highlander” formats, are very popular in other card games and always a blast to play. Deckbuilding can be intimidating for many given the number of choices, but luckily, these formats tend to have trends that we’re sure to see emerge here in Eternal. Today…

For The Throne — Predicting The Dead Reckoning Metagame

For The Throne — Predicting The Dead Reckoning Metagame

Dead Reckoning is out and the metagame is wide open. Have the cards been weak as most initially thought? Or have many of them exceeded expectations? Is the metagame going to still have aggro? Is Primal good now? All of this and more will be discussed. Let’s start by evaluating some cards worth talking about.     Hailstorm is the most important card in the set. Cards like this alter the format and set a big limit to what can safely…

For The Throne — The Primal Problem

For The Throne — The Primal Problem

I try to avoid making articles like this one. I’m not against criticism—just the opposite. It’s that they have a weird way of harboring a lot of unintended negativity. So let me then say that I offer this from a place of nothing but love for the game. There’s an issue I’ve tried to stay low-key about for a while now. “Eventually,” I thought, “they’re going to change things.” But I haven’t seen anything, so I can no longer remain…
