Friday Update – Who’s The Boss

May 18, 2018

Welcome to a round up of the week. We have our latest patch, new Signature Decks, Who’s the Boss, and more:

Dev Developments

This week we had a pretty big update with our all-new Currency Patch! This patch introduced a bunch of goodies to the game as well as two new alternate currencies, Cosmic Coins and Siege Sacks. By using these sweet new currencies, you can get packs and never before seen cosmetics, including two new battleboards, animated coins, and alternate art shards! You can read all about where to get these currencies and how to use them here. So what are you waiting for? Jump right in and start earning today!

If you are uncertain how to best start climbing the ladder or taking down Sieges, we’ve also reintroduced Signature Decks to the in-game store! Built by the community for the community, these preconstructed decks offer an easy entry point to the constructed scene. Grab one today for 2500 platinum, and keep your eyes peeled here on HEXTCG.com for articles from the creators detailing play strategies, reserve options, and possible upgrade paths.

Shamrock Collector Box

As if that weren’t enough, this patch also introduced our latest Collector’s Deck! Get some gold-star quality animated cards and sleeves. No luck required!

Just pop on down to the in-game store and you too can bling out with these exclusive offerings.

Merry Melee Rotation

Ryan Sutherland, aka HEXRysu, here with the latest Merry Melee format… Who’s the Boss! This format allows you to take on one of the many Frost Ring Arena champions. For those of you who have played hours of Frost Ring Arena, now’s your chance to turn the tables and become one of 40 different champions.

If you ever wanted to harness the true power of the Archon of Nulzann or, my personal favorite, the Artisanal Cheesesmythe, now is your chance. Like with Corinth’s Iconoclash, you don’t need to provide a deck for this mode. Instead, when you jump in, we’ll give you and your opponent one of the Elite decks at random.
