Friday Update – Etch a Sketch

Sep 28, 2018

Welcome to a round up of the week. Merry Melee Epic Spell Warz returns and more:

Merry Melee Rotation

EPIC SPELL WARZ returns this Friday! As you may recall, this mode starts both players as Frenzied Zakiir:

Frenzied Zakiir

But that’s not all! You also get a smattering of thresholds and… an empty deck.

So, game over, right? Well, not quite. Frenzied Zakiir has an ability that makes it so that you don’t draw cards. Instead, if you would draw a card, you get two random actions put into your hand. Also, at the start of your turn, you get a charge and an extra resource point. Your charges can go towards building up a Skarn army while you leverage all of the free actions you’re getting to beat up on your opponent. It’s a wild time!

Merry Melee Epic Spell Warz

Format: Frenzied Zakiir
Cost: 100 Platinum
Length: Gauntlet (5 wins / 3 losses)

Winning ten games of this week’s format will earn you the animated Scion of Lyvaanth Sleeve! Come grab it while it’s hot:

Epic Spell Warz is live now and will run for 1 week (ending Friday 10/5 at 10am PT). So, limber up your wands and keep a bead on your opponents! It’s spell-slinging time.
