Friday Update – 4Play

Aug 10, 2018

Welcome to a round up of the week. Our 8-8-7 Flashback Drafts run for one more week, we reveal our new 4Play Merry Melee mode, and more:

Flashback Fun

Our 8-8-7 Flashback event continues! Come enjoy the icy grip of the Frost Ring Arena and the teams you know and love. Will you Blightbark it up with plant zombies? Will you light the way with the Luminaries? Or, will you choose the Cult classic and bury your opponents under their own deck? Find out before August 17th when our queues return to normal. Gems and Champions will be Standard Legal for the duration of this event.

Also, don’t forget that playing in our Flashback events can win you this fantastic sleeve:

The Animated Eternal Invoker sleeve will go to any player who manages to go 3-0 in a single Draft or after they have won 10 Draft Matches, whichever comes first. So, what are you waiting for? Flashbacks will be live for a limited time, so be sure to get your games in now.

Merry Melee Rotation

Are you ready for some more Merry Melee excitement? Today we introduce our new 4play mode, a wacky constructed gauntlet that asks players to build a bulgingly beefcake battalion of cost 4 or more. No cheap plays here! All cards in your deck must be at least 4 cost and Standard legal. In return, players will start with 3 permanent resources to start the game off with a bang:
