Within the nice woods of Forestcraft a fantastic debate rages amongst the leaders.. nicely most of them anyhow. The query of Ladica and why solely she will get a pleasant wedding ceremony costume version card ?! Aria is outraged at this injustice and Liza is not too completely satisfied about it both. In the meantime Selwyn is simply facepalming wishing for one thing extra critical to debate, no less than Ladica seems to be good in her costume he thinks.

For Forestcraft Roach Forest stays the highest deck adopted by Evolve Forest and a little bit of Amataz Forest. The category is struggling a bit with the rise of Burn Blood because it cuts by way of lots of what Forest does in a slightly nonchalant method leaving the category in a little bit of a clumsy spot. Nonetheless good, however not fairly as simple.

Roach Forest

A management combo deck constructed across the roach and a little bit of speed up. By far the strongest Forest deck however one which does battle with a number of the high decks atm as they will shortly push by way of what it does forcing the deck to depend on excessive rolling, that mixed with the next talent cap does maintain the decks reputation in examine atm. Not a recommendable deck as Roach does rotate out on the finish of the month.

Evolve Forest

A management deck constructed round Evolution. Management forest shouldn’t be seeing lots of utilization atm, partly as a result of meta, partly on account of a excessive talent cap and that i’d argue an absence of one thing additional atm. Not a deck i can suggest since its most important win situation, Zeus, is rotating out on the finish of the month.

Amataz Forest

An aggro combo deck. Seeing some fringe play right here and there however for probably the most it’s not probably the most performed deck. A bit partly on account of missing a extra coherent technique and constant one since if it doesn’t draw Amataz or Divine smithing the deck kinda falls aside a bit leaving it within the mud.


Within the Everlasting citadel of Swordcraft the place the sounds of Marching ring day and knight. We discover Albert very enthusiastic about the entire idea of driving automobiles and bikes. Already busily designing his personal Albert branded Bike, it falls to Latham to interrupt the information to him that he most certainly will not get to play with it since he’ll be rotating out quickly and it’s uncertain that any of these items will likely be helpful in rotated out. It was a grim day for Albert.

For Swordcraft Evolve Sword continues to steer the cost adopted by Rally Sword. Swordcraft continues to be in a robust place largely on account of Alyaska actually boosting the category and likewise Burn Blood pushing again Spellboost Rune a bit which was actually the most important risk to the category.

Evolve Sword

Very strong deck that does not actually lose something however King’s Welcome within the subsequent rotation on the finish of the month.

Rally Sword

A tempo deck constructed across the rally mechanic and going huge. An attention-grabbing growth with some decks chopping regal wildcat for Forge weaponry together with a Fieran being minimize too.

For Runecraft Spellboost Rune is as all the time on the high adopted by Arcane Merchandise Store and Earth ceremony rune, lastly there are rumours of a gradual return by Natura Rune of all issues, although i lack extra experiences on that to say greater than that. Total the rise of Burn Blood has been an enormous downside for the category, however so long as Swordcraft is within the place it mustn’t pose too large of a problem for Runecraft.

Spellboost Rune

A midrange deck constructed round Spellboosting. A robust deck however struggling underneath the relentless assault of Burn blood which actually throws a wrench into its plans, that stated the deck is robust vs Evolve Sword and so could have a spot due to that.

Arcane Merchandise Store Rune

A combo deck constructed across the Arcane Merchandise Store.

Earth Ceremony Rune

A midrange deck constructed round Earth Rites. Been seeing a slight enhance as of late as the opposite decks have been pushed again.

So whereas respectable, you’ll have to work for it.

Natura Dragon

A midrange deck constructed round Natura Synergies. A fringe deck at this level however one which does often pop up right here and there to provide somebody grief. Good vs slower decks however weak to quick and aggressive ones. Count on to work onerous for it should you resolve to climb with it. Not a very recommendable deck.


Within the Nice Catacomb of Shadowcraft the place historic civilizations and all method of secrets and techniques lie buried. We discover Mordecai questioning if what they get to maneuver will grow to be a hearse or some type thereof, he’d not be shocked within the slightest. It matches, however hardly what he’d prefer to drive about.

For Shadowcraft Burial Ceremony Shadow has climbed to the highest of the Necropolis adopted by Hades shadow and eventually Yokai Shadow. The category is in a good spot within the present meta with no specific struggles not victories.

Total strong however does require some talent for one of the best leads to the meta.

Hades Shadow

A combo deck constructed round Hades. The deck has seen a slight rise in reputation together with Burial Ceremony Shadow however does stay total notably much less performed as compared, a difficult deck to pilot this mixed with the truth that hades rotates out on the finish of the month makes it robust to suggest.

Yokai Shadow

A management combo deck. The deck has been getting much less widespread with the latest modifications to the meta this mixed with its larger talent necessities are driving down its reputation. That stated within the palms of a talented participant it may nonetheless carry out fairly nicely. So whereas strong it’s troublesome to suggest.


Within the Decadent and historic manor of Bloodcraft we discover Urias Formonde and Mono a bit perplexed on the return of Highlander to Bloodcraft, though the thought of driving round in automobiles sounds fairly interesting to the each of them, although they do shortly write down a observe to ensure that if Medusa will get a motorcycle to get some coaching wheels put in on it so she would not damage herself too badly.

For Bloodcraft Burn Blood stays the Alpha Predator adopted by Wrath Blood and eventually Management Blood. The meteoric rise of Burn Blood has propelled the category into a robust place within the meta with few critical challengers.

Within the nice Cathedral of Havencraft the place all method of gods might be discovered and the place beings awfully just like angels, however not angels in any respect, additionally reside. We discover Eris and the opposite leaders assembled, awaiting the arrival of Elana but in addition pondering the entire.. church and weapons factor. Specifically the chap wielding gatling weapons on every arm appears a bit… a lot ? Although Garuda is fast to level that maybe he’s merely worshipping the gun, and thus is technically worshipping one thing. Eris would not fairly purchase it however lets it slide for now.

A midrange deck constructed round therapeutic synergies. It’s making a gradual return as Burn blood rises in reputation as Elana Haven has the instruments to counter that, although it does produce other struggles within the meta which does total constrain its total reputation, so whereas respectable it isn’t fairly easy crusing.
