Friday Update – Bucket of Fun

May 3, 2019

Welcome to a round up of the week. Merry Melee ROIDS returns, Season 3 begins, and more:

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!

Merry Melee ROID

Format: ROID Bot
Cost: 100 Platinum

      ROID is live now and will run for 1 week (ending Friday 5/10 at 10am PT). So, get ready to beep, boop, and bzzzt your way to victory!

      Cosmic Crown Showdown

      We also want to take a moment and congratulate our latest Cosmic Crown Showdown qualifiers. These players have clawed and fought their way to the top of our 2019 Season 2 constructed and limited ladders and earned their right to battle it out for our platinum prize pool! This capstone tournament will take place on May 18th and 19th, so save the date, start your brews, and secure your spot among the stars.

      For everyone else…
