Budget Decks for Mythgard – October 2019

October! What a fun month…. trick-or-treaters, spoopy memes, budget decks…. October truly has it all. Let’s sit down to enjoy some candy and talk about what this article is. Previously, the idea behind these decks was to present options for new players looking to jump into ladder play and bypass the “finding out what cards to use to start winning hard early” phase of learning the game. Personally, I’m not a free-to-play player, nor am I anywhere near it. I

Advanced Lane Mechanics In Mythgard

One of Mythgard’s most distinguishing features is its usage of lanes. This lane system leads to a very large number of nuanced decisions per game. Understanding and utilizing good placement and movement in Mythgard can be the difference between good and great players. I’ve written about some basics of lane placement previously, so be sure to check that out before reading this article. This article is going to be a little less structured and flowing than normal, as we’re mostly

Orange-Purple Midrange: Why You Should (Or Shouldn’t) Play It

Let’s talk today about a deck that I’ve been grinding away with on stream lately. When Purple cards came out, I had a fixation with playing them in whatever decks I’d be playing for the next little while. Purple cards were new. They were cool. They felt fresh. I was convinced they’d even do my laundry for me! But….. did they really improve my decks? To understand how we arrive at the conclusions this article will reach, we must first

Budget Decks for Mythgard – August 2019

Here we are! New month…. new players….. new (mostly) budget decks! Oh…. and apparently a whole new color too? Mythgard has historically seen budget decks do well in ladder and tournament play. August’s choices (much like June’s and July’s btw) all look to take advantage of that. The same rules are in place for this month as what we normally have. No Mythics and no more than 6 Rares. There may be a couple lists with 7 Rares, but those

Top 10 Underplayed Mythgard Cards

There are always sleeper cards in every format of every card game. It’s what makes exploring a format so much fun. Once thorough exploration is done, people like to call the format “solved” and it’s likely that any undiscovered stategies in the format will remain so, as the community moves on. This has not happened in Mythgard. There are a lot of rather untested and underplayed cards currently. Today, we’re going to look at 10 cards you should should probably

Budget Decks for Mythgard – July 2019

While the majority of the community is utilizing Q-mode for the time being, we’re still here to present some budget options for those folks sticking it out without utilizing Purple.

Trident: A Deck Profile by Tenchuu

Today’s piece is guest content written by community member Tenchuu. He is here to teach us about the deck that he’s taken the tournament scene by storm with this week. Deck Idea My quest in this alpha was to try and break multicolor. Many people were playing dual color effectively and creatively, but I felt tricolor was underexplored; possibly out of shyness. Mythgard’s mana system is much more friendly with multicolored decks than other classic CCGs, but some traditionalist types

Budget Decks for Mythgard – June 2019

One of the great things about Mythgard is the impactful suite of mythic cards to add to your deck. However, those mythics can take some time to acquire.

Using Math to Construct Your Deck

One of the most important and oft-talked about aspects to deck construction in almost every card game is consistency. Today, we’ll explore the idea of consistency in your deck as it pertains to Mythgard and take a look at a mathematical approach to making sure your deck is as fine-tuned and optimized as possible. Before moving too deep into the numbers, I think it’s important to establish a common definition of “consistency” in this context. For the purpose of this

Navigating Turn 1 Minion Placement

There are many ways to approach your turn 1 Minion placement and each of those approaches have their benefits and their own disadvantages as well. The first placement we’ll look
