Merry Melee Rotation

Welcome to another wild week of Merry Melee. This week, we are bringing back our Corinth vs Corinth mode. In this mode you don’t select a deck and you don’t select a champion. Instead, you are given a predetermined deck of 20 resources (4 copies of each standard shard – [BLOOD] [WILD] [DIAMOND] [RUBY] [SAPPHIRE] ), and the champion Corinth the Iconoclast.

Corinth
Shifted Paradigm – Skip your draw phase. At the end of your turn, put your crypt and hand into your deck, then draw four cards.

You will then use her powers to create and choose cards—essentially building your deck on the fly. Only careful choices, a bit of luck, and quick thinking will grant victory over your opponents.

The Corinth vs Corinth mode will be available via an on-demand, gauntlet queue for the duration of the event. The gauntlet uses a best of one match system and will continue until you have 5 wins or 3 losses, whichever comes first. At the end of your gauntlet, players will receive a payout based on their record.

Merry Melee Corinth

Format: Immortal
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

In addition, winning a total of 10 games across our Corinth events (your wins will persist from your past Corinth vs Corinth victories) will reward this gorgeous animated sleeve!

Corinth is live now and will run for 1 week (ending Friday 6/29 at 10am PT). So, sharpen your wits and get ready to break through to victory!
