Merry Melee Rotation

This is Ryan Sutherland, aka HEXRysu, joining you once again with another new Merry Melee format—Dingleton! This week we’re changing things up a bit. For the first time in our Merry Melee series, we’re letting you build the deck you bring to the fight. Of course, with a name like Dingleton, it’s not just any old deck. Let’s just say that Dinglers aren’t the best at optimization.

So, this week, you’ll build your best deck out of any Immortal cards from HEX’s history, but you may only use one copy of each and your deck has to be 100 cards instead of the normal 60 card minimum. Note: You can still run more than 1 copy of any Standard Shard (Blood Shard, Diamond Shard, etc.).

Merry Melee Dingleton

Format: Constructed; Singleton; 100 Card Minimum
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

As always, winning ten games of this week’s format will earn you the toe-tappingly tantalizing Dingledance sleeve:

Dingleton is live now and will run for 1 week (ending Friday 6/8 at 10am PT). So, pick your partner and get ready to do-si do your best in this wacky one off.

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!
