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…

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…

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…
