TheBoxer’s Corner: Burn for Free

Hello and welcome back to TheBoxer’s Corner! Today I am going to give my opinion on how the Torch nerf has felt so far. If you interacted with me on the day of the Torch nerf I would have given you the answer that this is an unequivocally bad decision. After a couple weeks I have warmed up to the nerf but I’m still not sure Torch was the best card to nerf. I believe that Eternal should have a

TheBoxer’s Corner: Argenport IKEA As Is

Hello and welcome back to TheBoxer’s Corner! Today I am going to talk about a topic that has been bugging more for a while but I haven’t gotten around to writing up until now. The simple phrase “we could put it in the market.” The market is not a place to shove your cards you couldn’t fit in the main deck. The market is a part of your deck. You build the deck as a whole, the market should not

TheBoxer’s Corner: Ø

“But I have patience and experience. A man can do anything if he has those.” – Helmut Zemo, Captain America and the Winter Soldier Hello and welcome back to TheBoxer’s Corner! Unless you speak a Nordic language or study mathematics you probably aren’t familiar with the character Ø. In math it is the symbol used to represent the Empty Set. The Empty Set is the most important set (if you adhere to the ZFC formulation of Axiomatic Set Theory). In

TheBoxer’s Corner: Kennadin

In this video I give a deck tech and then play 5 games with a Kennadin list given to me by LightsOutAce. Kennadin is a deck built around Combustion Cell and Tribute cards. Please note that this video was recorded before Garden of Omens was released. I believe it is likely incorrect to play zero copies of Garden, but I don’t have an updated list to share with you.

TheBoxer’s Decree: All That We Get

Hello and welcome to the first edition of TheBoxer’s Decree! This will be a recurring article format where I focus in on a specific card or type of card and explain why I think it’s underplayed or overplayed. For all the fans of my Grenadin content, don’t worry, my history of Grenadin article is coming soon. Today I’m going to talk about a highly controversial opinion of mine. Royal Decree is a bad card. Notice I didn’t say unplayable. Bad

TheBoxer’s Corner: Grenadin Deck Guide

Hello and welcome back to TheBoxer’s Corner. Today I am going to talk about a topic very special to me; Grenadin. This is going to be split into two articles. In the first I’ll explain the game plan and give advice for making decisions. In the second I’ll explain the historical and contemporary construction of the deck. Grenadin is my favorite deck I have ever played in any card game. It is also the most misunderstood and improperly piloted deck

TheBoxer’s Corner: Wait So Long Part 3

Hello and welcome back to TheBoxer’s Corner. This will be the third and final part of my series on removal spells. In this article I am going to discuss choosing the right removal spell for the right threat. Many of these factors run against each other. I will discuss the major reasons in isolation because how they combine and clash varies wildly on matchup and even the texture of the individual game. It is up to you, the player, to

TheBoxer’s Corner: Wait So Long Part 2

Hello and welcome back to TheBoxer’s Corner. Last article, I discussed why you should often play fast removal on your own turn. In this article I am going to discuss reasons why you should do the opposite. It is important to keep in mind that the reasoning I present here should be weighed against the reasons I presented last week. Real decisions often involve some factors pushing one way and others pushing the other way. Things get messy, but it

TheBoxer’s Corner: Wait So Long Part 1

This first article is going to cover why it is often correct to play fast removal on your turn. This series of articles is primarily aimed at helping less experienced and intermediate players, but I believe players of all levels will gain something from reading this. There are 3 main reasons to

TheBoxer’s Corner: Tasbu and Svetya’s Sanctum Balance Changes

Tasbu, the Forbidden; a fitting name for a card with such harsh deck building restraints and a 5-drop that formerly had a chance of doing stone cold nothing when played. The phrase “Tasbu or another” is a huge addition to this card. Many in the community have been asking for this, and I honestly feel it should’ve been on the card the whole time. One can group Units into two types: Sandstorm Titans (SSTs) and Scraptanks. SSTs are Units that
