Hot off the Presses

We published three articles this week! Wow!

Today, we spoiled two Primal Dawn cards in Varranis’s first HEX article! He’s a professional TCG analyst and part of that is identifying historical trends in the genre, then figuring out how they fit into each particular game. His first installment of Primordial Knowledge is on Howling Brave– in current touranment decks, this card is used as copies 5 and 6 of Chlorophyllia. But, there’s so much more potential packed into this 1/1 Coyotle. Find out the best way you could be using this card today

On Wednesday, we also had pro TCG player Jeff Hoogland write up his first piece for the website with his Deck Drilldown series. He’s taking popular decks in the metagame, analyzing them, giving matchup advice from both sides of the game, and closes with ideas for improvement. His first shot is the Spiders deck from the HEX Invitational. If you’re looking to either play this deck or beat this deck, his piece is perfect for you.

The developer article is an oldie, but a goodie. On Monday, developer Rysu unveiled the Oracle of Oracles and how this card came to be, as well as its place in expressing the Coyotle way of life.

Primal Dawn

We’re continuing to work on delivering Primal Dawn and making good progress. While you wait, I wanted to show you two cards that represent another sub-theme you’ll see in the set: the haters.

Inventive-SaboteurQuash-Ridge-Exterminator

Orcs hate Vennen and vice versa. Dwarves hate Elves, and so on. In Armies of Myth, you were introduced to cards like Neophyte Awakener which represented the conflict between the Necrotic and the Humans. In Primal Dawn, we finish off the cycle with the remaining races. You’ll see that the Exterminator kills bugs dead and with each job gives a 10-card guarantee of your board being pest-free. The Dwarf takes a different angle. Why take the fight to the Elves when you can just make robots do your bidding, especially when your robot is a superior model compared to soft flesh-and-blood? You’ll see these and the remaining haters when Primal Dawn releases.

That’s all for this week. Please leave any questions or comments in the forums, and don’t forget to Follow us on TwitterLike us on FacebookFollow us on Twitch, and register on our forums.
