Friday Update – Spellbound

Oct 25, 2019

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

Greetings, Hexers! The end of our 5th Ladder season of 2019 is on the horizon. At midnight Pacific time on October 31st, our top 64 players from both the Constructed and Limited ladders will be locked in for their shot at taking top prize in our Cosmic Crown Showdown! If you haven’t already secured your spot, start climbing now. Your place in the stars is just a few games away.

Cosmic Crown Showdown

Our Showdown this season will take place on November 16th and 17th at 9am Pacific. Be sure to save the date for your chance at prizes, glory, and the exclusive Cosmic Crown Showdown sleeve!

HEX Mondays

Come join the team for some friendly games of HEX! If you haven’t stopped by already, be sure to log in between 4pm and 9pm Pacific on Mondays to match wits and decks against some members of the team.

Our good friend Snake also streams around that time, so drop by his channel and hang with the community! He’ll also have a few Draft Codes to give away, so anyone can get in on the action. Check him out, and let’s all have some fun HEXing together.

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: Free!
Length: Gauntlet (5 wins / 3 losses)

Epic Spell Warz is live now and will run for 1 week (ending Friday 11/1 at 10am PT). So, limber up your wands and keep a bead on your opponents! It’s spell-slinging time.
