Key cards: sun-blighted one, sacrificial lamb
Now since I ever started playing shadow era one hero caught my attention. Gravebone.
Why Gravebone? Because many said he was useless, non competitive,
And his abillity is just outright redundent.
On Saturday the 13th September, at 2 pm GMT+0, 16 people gathered on the IRC channel #tournament in order to take part in the Warriors of the Blue Phoenix challenge #47. The Warriors of The Blue Phoenix guild host a tournament every weekend with various rules, which is “the best way to get crystals and test your skills”.
I have not one, but two decks for you today from the finalist of this tournament. In First Place came A1 Peithoson, who was playing A1 Vyz’s discard Zaladar deck, a very popular deck choice at the moment, which aims to benefit from discarding cards from your hand and deck. In Second Place was ETC Xander Spitfire, who was running “Victor Troll Deck”, a deck of his own creation. This deck is a beat down deck, in which you attempt to spam as many allies as possible. It also attempts to make use of Nathanias the people champion.
Deck 1- Vyz’s discard Zaladar
Eladwen has always been seen as one of the top heroes with the abuse of hasted allies and powerful burn. This deck proves she can be strong playing a slower, more controlling game. Eladwen and the other Magi gained some fun toys with Shattered Fates. This deck uses a few of them.
Key Cards: Amulet of Conjuring, Transmogrification Curse, Sorcerer of Endia
Haste is a powerful keyword. What makes it important is fact that you are guaranteed to use ally for attack or its ability at least once. This is very good given the plethora of control and burn cards in Shadow Era able to shut down your allies before they get the chance to do anything. Even if that ally dies next turn you had at least one use out of it, which can put you ahead in tempo more often than not. Boris already used this in DP but now with SF he got some new tools.
Key Cards: Fleet-footed Messenger, The King’s Pride
With SF and new cards that support undead tribe Moonstalker has become even more annoying. With stealth and damage reduction provided by Grave Resistance Moonstalker’s normally bad match ups are now significantly mitigated making him in my opinion tier 1 hero.
Key Cards: Grave Resistance, Gromm’s Whip
