For The Throne — Predicting The Post-Horus Metagame

For The Throne — Predicting The Post-Horus Metagame

The Tale of Horus Traver (TToHT) is here! In addition to bringing a ton of exciting lore to the game, the adventure campaign has provided us with several new powerful cards. Let’s break down some of the strongest cards and look at how the metagame might start to change. In case it wasn’t apparent, there will be card spoilers (but no story spoilers.) Tavrod, Auric Broker Without a doubt, Tavrod is the best card from TToHT and is now one…

SkeeJay’s Guide to Destroying Cards

SkeeJay’s Guide to Destroying Cards

  If I had a nickel for every time somebody came into my stream and asked “is there a list of rares and Legendaries that are safe to grind into Shiftstone?” then I’d have about $1.50 in nickels. Often, my response is something along the lines of “well, there isn’t an official guide. I should probably get working on one, I’ll start that this weekend.” 4 months later, “this weekend” has finally come! The following is a list of Rares…

Understanding Chalice Control – An In-Depth Deck Guide and Discussion

Understanding Chalice Control – An In-Depth Deck Guide and Discussion

  Hello everyone! Thanks for coming to read my first article for SeekPowerGaming, and I hope you find it enjoyable and informative. My name is Alex “Bradykin” Shulman, and I’ve been piloting Chalice Control almost exclusively for the past 3 months, including bringing it to the Season 5 Invitational and taking it to second place in ETS Season 6 Week 2. I’d like to share the insights I’ve gotten into the deck with you all. When you think about Chalice…

The Importance of Sideboarding

The Importance of Sideboarding

  There are several major skillsets that give top-tier players a huge advantage over novice players. Today I want to discuss sideboards, their importance, and how to properly prepare yours and use it. Before we get into that though, I’d like to introduce myself.   I’ve been playing Eternal for just over a month. In that time, I won the first two TCG-Esports tournaments I played in, hit Masters ranks effortlessly, and have been welcomed to one of the best…

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

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…

Controlling the Ladder with TPS

Controlling the Ladder with TPS

Hello! Today I’d like to show everyone the deck I’ve been working on when I haven’t been grinding out Combrei mirrors. I went from Gold 1 (0 Points) to Master Rank 3 last night in 5 hours on stream. This deck is something Calimdir and Tatavath have both worked on in the recent past, so much credit goes to them. So – The list! The Current Decklist 2 Dark Return (Set1 #250) 4 Seek Power (Set1 #408) 2 Annihilate (Set1…

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…

Omens of the Past Limited: 34 Drafts in, Data, Tips and Impressions

If you’ve watched my stream (shameless plug: https://www.twitch.tv/child__roland  ) you’ve heard me mention a spreadsheet after almost every draft and draft game.  I’ve been tracking my deck lists, influence breakdowns and the influences of my opponents at the end of games.  And, of course, I track the results of games and drafts overall.  Here is a link to a snapshot of that spreadsheet, as well as basic draft probability calculator that can take a win percentage and tell you how likely you…

Deck Tech – Testing out changes with premium cards.

Deck Tech – Testing out changes with premium cards.

In this weeks’ (the very first) deck tech I (have written, I) want to expose you to the idea of being able to track your deck tech using premium cards. I was inspired to write a bit about this after seeing this comment-chain on reddit last week. Comment from discussion merging premium with regular card.. The easiest way to do this is to simply trade cards out 1 for 1. For example if you have 3 of a card but…
