Lights Out – Cards That Excite Me From Echoes of Eternity

I love new set week! Echoes of Eternity is an extremely powerful set, full of build-arounds and obviously powerful cards. There are tons of new ideas being tossed round on reddit, discord, and the ladder, and they will take some time to refine, so instead of talking about decklists, today I’m going to be talking about the cards from EoE that excite me the most. Kato, Arena Herald Kato is like Spark Hatcher, only you get another 0/1 if you

Lights Out – Endgame

Going into the Quarterly Championships, Argenport was the deck to beat in Expedition. Its main weakness felt like 8 sweeper decks (Four each of Shen-Ra Speaks and Ageworn Vestige) with Xulta Arcanum. These decks generally come in 4-faction forms that are base TJP or TJS with a single Fire Sigil to find with Seek Power or Amber Acolyte and have Arcanum as their only Fire card. Neither third faction seemed to add that much in exchange for the decreased consistency.

Lights Out – ECQ Champion

Spoilers if you haven’t watched the VOD of ECQ: Strange Lands yet, but I won the tournament! It’s always great to win an event, but this time I didn’t do it alone.

But first let’s go back to the beginning. The Deck I’ve been a huge

Lights Out: Invoke the Chair

I hope everyone had/has/will have a wonderful holiday! It’s the season for fun and relaxation, and I can think of no better way to relax and have fun than to play really long games of Eternal. Today’s deck may not take you to the top of ladder, but I’ve had a blast gunning down everything with Blitrok + Vara’s Sanctum: 4 Seek Power (Set1 #408)2 Eremot’s Designs (Set1007 #9)4 Fenris Nightshade (Set4 #204)4 Lightning Strike (Set1 #197)4 Vara’s Favor (Set0

Lights Out – Shadows Over Expedition

Welcome to Lights Out, my old article series revitalized and newly hosted by Team Rankstar! I wrote weekly or biweekly articles throughout 2017 and most of 2018, but website changes and life events kept me out of the article-writing game for most of 2019. Now I’m back, though – expect to see plenty more of me in 2020! If you are not familiar with my work, you can check submission history on reddit or my youtube channel. I’m most known for Xenan decks, Scrappy Hour and various other grindy midrange and control decks.
