WC 2014 Top 4 Interviews – BP Vince1992

First off, we are all dying to know, what is the significance of 1992?

This is just a personal tag to differentiate me from others named Vince.

When did you first start playing Shadow Era?

The first glance I took into this game was probably at the end of 2011, but I did not know the rule of the game and was not patient to read the rule book (I doubt if there was a rule book at that time). So the real first time I started playing is at the end of 2012.

How did you find the game?

Originally, I was addicted to strategic card games like Yugioh, Three Kingdom Killing, which was a board card game based on the mechanism of Bang! and dead popular in main land China. Since in America, it was not convenient or to say not available to play them. I tried to look through App store to find out whether there was other interesting games like them. Then I got Shadow Era.

WC2014 Top 4 Interviews – BP Lorgi

What is the significance of your IGN?

My IGN is derived from my last name and I’ve been using it as a gaming nickname for quite a while now. Also, some people call me by that nick in rl because my first name is the most common name in the country.

When did you first start playing Shadow Era?

I started playing SE around the time CotC was oficially released iirc. But after several months or so I took a longer break and didn’t return till after Iclipse won WC.

How did you find the game?

I found the game while I was looking for free to play online TCGs. It was recommended on some forums so I thought I’d give it a go…

WC 2014 Top 4 Interviews – RS Justicar

Where does your IGN come from?

– My IGN is from a pTCG I used to play in my college days… “Jyhad” later renamed to “Vampire: The Eternal Struggle” which is produced by White Wolf Publishing, same company that produced the RPG “Vampire: The Masquerade”. Justicar is a high rank among the vampire clans of a certain sect called the Camarilla. It basically means “Judge, Jury and Executioner”.

When did you first start playing Shadow Era?

– I started playing Shadow Era about the 3rd quarter of 2012… got hooked on it from then on.

How did you find the game?

– I found it on the App Store when I was searching of a TCG to play… shortly then after I found the forums and a Facebook community of fellow Filipino Shadow Era players.

Turbo Skervox (Terbox)



This deck is brought to you by the brilliant mind of TJ Streetsahead. He has been working on this deck for several months with the help of TJ Opyo0 and has finally settled on his card choices. To quote the man himself, “I’ve tried it with 40 cards. I’ve tried it with 42. I’ve tried it with 60 and it won an internal. I’ve tried it with 52. It works best with 45″. I have run the deck a good number of times and when it works, it is one of the most fun decks I have played with. The resource ramp can be unbelievable. It is not unusual to end a match with over 16 resources. Continue reading

[SF] Piraxix: Advancing Discarded Army

Prior to trying the following Piraxix deck out I had previously only played him about 2 times over the course of the last year. Piraxix is not one of those heroes that particularly interest me, so I though I would try something different with him from what everybody else was doing. This deck does not seek to mill the opponent but instead uses a combination of a steady stream of allies, cantrip drawing, as well as other on summon and on discard effects to control the board and win the game.

[SF] Gravebone “Scorched Earth”

This is the deck I would have used had I been able to participate in the Shadow Era World Championships of 2014. Ultimately this deck is tuned to my play style and how I wanted to approach the Qualifier events. I started with my Gravebone: Undead Necromancer build and transitioned in some other cards that could help me in various matchups.

Aramia, the Lonely Chick

Aramia,The Lonely Chick

Written by Jordan
The hot summer winds swept across the plains of Balor, rustling through the small villages located at the base of Mt. Miaara, the shape shifting mountain shrouded in mystery. Next to the serene majesty of Mt. Miaara lay a surprising sight; a smoking and charred wasteland of spent supernovas and failed boomerangs.
At the base of Mt. Miaara, one could make out the outline of a massive, dull blue facility pulsing with a teal fog of ethereal energies. The occasional thwack of the boomerang and fizzling of a fireball could be heard emanating from the grandiose marble entrance which faced the mountain. The surrounding villages were built with a wide berth from the facility, for good reason. The facility was known to occasionally release giant bouts of flaming gas and waves of razor sharp boomerangs. It is said, according to a Unaxion paladin who had once gotten close as it happened, that one could hear the raging screams of Aramia as she tossed out apprentices wielding unstable supernovas and sent them flying to the wastelands to released the pent up energy.

buqs [SF v2.88] Demolition Derby (Ravager Guide)

Recent Shadow Era up version 2.86 during the Shattered Fates Expansion did a complete overhaul of the Ravager Tribe. They transitions from standard +1/+1 boring growth pattern to a more aggressive +2/+0 growth pattern. This is actually a huge change which dramatically changes their playability as a tribe in general. The update also brings in a new 2cc ally creating even more flexibility the build. The Ravagers are still a very much a combo oriented tribe, however since the update they rely a bit less on the combos in order to maintain their strategies. In addition to being combo oriented the Tribe also represents a lot of the new game cost mechanic Sustain (read more here) to help offset some of the tremendous strength of the tribe. I personally enjoy the tribe much more and have come to appreciate them through studying them. Continue reading

[SF] Baduruu: Controlled Destruction (Ravager)

This is a lightly tested pairing of Baduruu and the Ravager Tribe. In creating this deck the goal was just to test the waters to find some synergies for this pairing. I was surprised to find they work fairly well together despite having to include weapons and Ravager things in the same deck. Obviously since the Ravager tribe did not really exist prior the latest Shadow Era expansion most cards belong to Shattered Fates.
