Friday Update – 10 Lords a Leaping

Dec 28, 2018

Welcome to a round up of the week. Merry Melee Perfect 10 returns and more:

Immortal Championship

As we announced last week, the HEX Primal Immortal Championship is this Sunday, December 30th, at 9am Pacific. Be sure to get those Immortal tickets if you want to take part! You still have a few days to qualify for some classic HEX fun. Hexprimal.com has more information regarding this event.

Cosmic Crown Showdown

Our current Ladder Season ends December 31st! That’s just a few short days away. For those of you aiming at a shot at the next CCS, it’s time to climb! Our capstone tournament will take place on January 12th and 13th, so save the date, start your brews, and secure your spot among the stars.

For everyone else, there will soon be adventurous new cosmetics to reward your climb. Let’s skate on over and take a look at what’s coming:

Baby it’s cold outside, but these new cards are hot. Get ready to deck the halls with your opponents starting January 1st! See you then.

Merry Melee Rotation

Are you ready for some more Merry Melee excitement? In Perfect 10, we ask you to build a deck of perfect beauty. Not only does your deck need to have only one copy of each named card, but your plays each turn need to be flawless as well. This is because while each player gets to start the game with 10 resource points and 5 of each threshold, you may only play one card per turn. Better make it count!

Merry Melee Perfect 10

Format: Standard Constructed, Singleton, Only 1 Card Per Turn
Cost: 100 Platinum
Length: Gauntlet (5 wins / 3 losses)
Match: Best of one
Prizes:

  • 3 Wins – Random Standard Rare
  • 4 Wins – Current Set Booster Pack
  • 5 Wins – Current Set Booster Pack and Random Standard Rare

With this exciting mode, we’re also rewarding the best architects among you. Claim victory in a total of 10 games across our Perfect 10 events to nab a new, gorgeously animated sleeve! Check it out below:

Perfect 10 is live now and will run for 1 week (ending Friday 1/4 at 10am PT). It will be a while before you get another shot at this runway, so put on those mad scientist caps and be the architect of your opponent’s demise today!

VIP Weekend

VIP weekend has come once more. As we mentioned a while back, we are rerunning our Emsee, Etcher of Nulzann and Graven Geist AAs for a limited time so that players who still have VIP tickets can use them while we reevaluate the program.
