Friday Update – Beep Boop

Sep 7, 2018

Welcome to a round up of the week. We have a list of our qualifying players from our last Ladder Season, Merry Melee ROID returns, and more:

Cosmic Crown Showdown

Our Ladder Season rolled over last week. Here are the top players who dominated the Limited and Constructed sides of things. Congratulations! Tickets to our Cosmic Crown Showdown tournament will be sent out shortly. Remember, this event will take place on September 15th and 16th, so save the date, start your brews, and secure your spot among the stars.

Merry Melee Rotation

Are you ready to prove that you are not a robot? Ready to prove that yes, you are a “human” that does human things? Well, you are in luck! Our ROID format returns, so you now have another chance to prove your supremacy to all those other robots out there. Like many of our Merry Melees, you won’t have to provide a deck for ROID, but instead our Randomly-Optimized-Insta-Deck will be provided for both you and your opponent.

In this format, you’ll be playing with decks of one or two random shards, but the contents of the decks are completely random from Standard cards. These decks can be kind of all over the place with a mono-blood Assault/Scorpinox/Blightbark/Uruunaz deck facing off against a Ruby-Sapphire Runic/Discard/Portal deck.

ROID

You never know what you’ll need to use to win next. To help you out, the ROID Bot has a powerful charge power to help keep your hand full of options (Pay 4 Charges to draw two cards), but it will all come down to who can optimize their plays the best!

ROID is live now and will run for 1 week (ending Friday 9/14 at 10am PT). So, get ready to beep, boop, and bzzzt your way to victory!
