Hey everyone, Alexicon1 here. Today myself and Ardent Dawn will be walking through the basics of deckbuilding, one of the more important skills in a player’s arsenal.
Step 1 – Have A Goal
So, for starters, you definitely need to have a goal to achieve with your deck. Plenty of players put very powerful cards together, that independently are very good cards, but together lose effectiveness. This is where we start talking about synergy which is how effective cards are when used in conjunction with others. Sometimes, cards aren’t that good by themselves, but when grouped with others are very good. For example, the Baconator/Meldhai archetype that was popularised by Nowayitsj was very reliant on the synergies within the deck in order to win. A common mistake that beginners make is they include cards in, that they only have 1 of, because the card is powerful or suitably awesome. You don’t really want that. In Duelyst, you want to have two things above all else, deck synergy and deck consistency. Aim for have 2x or 3x a card in your deck.
Hey everyone, Alexicon1 here. Last patch I detailed the changes to cards and their effects on the metagame. The response was quite positive, so here I am with round 2, but now I'm talking about the monthlies. There is plenty to talk about here, and some of these cards are definitely doozies. If you haven't read an "Under The Hood" before, in this segment I discuss card additions and changes to the game not necessarily been specified by Counterplay. I'll run over each change, and a basic breakdown of the effect on the game.
So sit back, relax and enjoy the first breakdown on the 2-mana Common card: Azure Herald.
Hey everyone, Alexicon1 here! Starting up a new (hopefully regular) segment, documenting those changes to the game that are under the hood and not necessarily have been specified by Counterplay. I'll run over each change, and a basic breakdown of the effect on the game. As this is my first go at it, feedback would be much appreciated, either here or on Discord at Alexicon1 | C67#0939.
Without further ado, let's begin with the Vanar secondary General: Kara Winterblade.
On Turn 1 Mystic, we aim to teach new players how to climb to Gold Division as soon as possible, then from Gold Division to S-Rank as soon as you're interested and have time.
