Dad’s Home! #2 : Feb 24 ETS Recap

Dad’s Home! It’s the Makdaddy coming back to you with an overdue tournament report for last weekend’s ETS (Feb 24, 2018). I’m going to go through a lot of things. I’ll start off with what decks I thought about playing and what I ended up playing (Spoiler: It had a few copies of the Makdaddy) then head into what I liked and didn’t like in my 90 and then round out with what I would have changed and some advice

The Eternal Vanguard – Community

Eternal is an incredible digital card game. The complexity and depth in all of the different archetypes and different play modes keeps players coming back, while the ease of access and the liberal ability to build one’s collection quickly entices new players at every turn. Eternal is fast approaching its 2nd birthday and is seeing incredible promise with casual and competitive players alike. What started as just another free CCG is now growing into a competitive tournament game with the

ThatResolves – JPS Makto Eilyn Control

ThatResolves finishes off the month strong with “Makto Eilyn Control“. The deck has lots of removal including playsets of Devastating Setback, Slay, Feeding Time (to fight off opposing Makto’s) and Harsh Rule. It also features a few other removal spells to balance out the suite, but essentially this deck is just removal, high impact JPS threats and the backbreaking Feln Control all-star: Azinedel’s Gift! The deck plays out a lot like Feln, but with the Vara nerf, now features a

Dad’s Home! #1 : Hot Take on Patch 1.28.7

Lets hop right in, shall we? Tavrod, Auric Broker – Unchanged I’m fine with Tavrod staying where he is, he is a very strong card and dodges a lot of removal, but I think the game actively wants a Midrange deck like Argenport to keep the meta in line. Argenport is the Jund of the format and keeps decks honest. If they were to make any changes to him I think the best option would be for him to get

He never really got the chance to break onto Magic scene

Acquiring an Eternal Collection

I was seeing some chatter on r/EternalCardGame about how tough it can be, as a new player, to build up a collection. Moreover, which direction to go. Is it worth picking a singular strategy to invest in, destroying all cards that do not fit into that deck? Is it better to keep as much as you can, so that you can play a wider variety of decks in the future? What happens if the deck you want to play gets

ThatResolves – CrownRoach and Praxis Flamestoker

@thatresolves has been hard at work figuring out different ways to attack the FJS Pile and SkyCraggro decks floating around right now. He found a few approaches that are off the beaten path, and a ton of fun to play. It’s hard to justify crafting the necessary legendary’s to make either of these decks, but if you do, you are liable to have a good time! Let us know what you think! CrownRoach Praxis Flamestokre AKA Anti-FJS

Appreciating Tier Lists

Whether you are a Hearthstone, Magic or Eternal player, one thing is clear – deck building game communities love to divide their competitive decks into tiers. Decks are placed into arbitrary categories based on their representation at tournaments and how well they perform. These tiers help players understand what to expect when entering the competitive field and how to adjust their strategy to account for the most prevalent deck archetypes. Sometimes these interpretations are taken as the final word when

ThatResolves – Feln and Xenan

Xenan is a fairly under represented faction on ladder as of late. Both LifeForce, Xenan Mid as well as Big Xenan have been fairly absent since the first week of the first week of the 2018 ETS. While some iterations of the deck were fairly popular pre-Dusk Road, it seems to have very heavily fallen out of favor since the meta shifted to include/combat more Argenport. ThatResolves takes a look at the most current iteration of LifeForce, showcasing some of

ThatResolves – Greed Pile

Easily one of our favorite archetypes, 3F Greed Piles has swung in and out of favor as the meta evolves. It aims to go over the top of most decks, and does it quite well. With that being true, it often does not have to worry too much about what the opponent is doing, nor over extend into a Harsh Rule. It can play a really strong midrange game, and overwhelm most late game plans. See for yourself Big thanks
