Mythgard Meta Report – January 2020 Week 1

Today we’ve got an article that is different than anything else we’ve published for Mythgard so far. One of the most important parts of a card game is understanding the metagame and planning your deck and your strategy accordingly. With the help from some faces that should be pretty familiar to most of our readers, I gathered some data and I’m here to tell you all about it. We’re going to be examining the play rates of different decks on

Meta Monday – January 2020 Week 1

Since GHP is going to be busy throughout January, I’m going to take over a few Meta Mondays this month, and as is tradition, the articles will actually come out on Tuesday. This week, we had 242 Throne games submitted and 506 Expedition games. Due to the balance changes, the Throne meta described is pretty much just a novelty, but we should still look at what the meta was like during the final week of Endra.

How Not To Tech Against Endra

This is a guest article from Alison. If you would like to write guest pieces to be published on Team Rankstar’s site, just reach out to Mantid on Discord or Twitter. Endra, Champion of Shavka, has been dominating the Throne format lately. The decks that run her go by a variety of affectionate nicknames: “Edna Storm”, “Haunted Harpway”, “Hurricane Endra”. All of them are based around the same basic concept – to recur Endra as many times as possible with

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

When it comes to the Eternal community, I’m probably known for three things: complaining a lot, wanting rotation, and being called Isomorphic.
