Friday Update – Highlander

Aug 30, 2019

Welcome to a round up of the week. Merry Melee Perfect 10 returns and we have a moment of remembrance:

Merry Melee Rotation

Merry Melee returns with Perfect 10. Here 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 9/6 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!

It’s Climb Time

A Moment of Remembrance

Colin, our first exalted, passed away in his sleep last week. There may be some of you out there who don’t know Colin, but we are sure there are many more out there who do. He was a giant in our community, and he was the very reason we had an exalted program in the first place.

Exalted Colin

Maybe you got something from one of his giveaways, or maybe he got you involved in one of his many charitable drives. Perhaps you joined one of his streams, or perhaps you’ve just seen him around the forums. In ways great and small, Colin touched many of us in the HEX community, and in doing so, he always encouraged us to be our best. He was our friend. He will be missed.

See you in the Battlegrounds,

The HEX Team
