Friday Update – Portal Kombat

Jun 8, 2018

Welcome to a round up of the week. We have Portal Kombat, our It’s Your Card poll, and more:

Merry Melee Rotation

Welcome to another wild week of Merry Melee with Ryan Sutherland, aka HEXRysu. This week, it’s time to test your might with Portal Kombat. Relive the wild RNG filled days of Dead of Winter by playing as Galaxtar and mastering all the portals you can muster.

Galaxtar

In Portal Kombat, you’ll be provided with a deck of 25 standard shards and a bunch of portals. Don’t like your hand? Well, don’t worry! Next turn it will be completely different. Every turn your hand will be shifting and giving you new options on how to handle your opponent’s threats. And, if you happen to end up with a hand of useless portals, you can also use Galaxtar’s charge power to dig for more powerful options.

Merry Melee Portal Kombat

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

  • 3 Wins – Random Standard Rare

Of course, we also have a brand-new sleeve for those of you who can fatality 10 opponents…

Portal Kombat is live now and will run for 1 week (ending Friday 6/15 at 10am PT). So, choose your fight, square off against your opponent, and finish him!

It’s Your Card

The community continues to carve out its own unique card with the help of our R&D team. In our latest poll, it is up to you all to choose the cost you think will make the most interesting card. Remember, cost has close ties to power, so keep that in mind when you make your choice. The vote will run until June 13th, so be sure to check it out before it ends. And as always, the team will also be discussing the card as you guys design it on our regular dev streams (which run from 2:30 PM – 4:30 PM Pacific Time every other Wednesday). Come join the fun!
