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

Power Bases and Speed

The following is a guest article by RousseausDisciple. Greetings, fellow players of Eternal! I am RousseausDisciple, and today I would like to talk about power bases and deck speed in the game. To begin, I have a question for you: have you ever played a power on autopilot, only to kick yourself seconds later because it prevented you from making a play you just drew, or that could have been played next turn?

Eternal and Archetypes

Just today I saw this Reddit thread, this had constant mentions about how FJS is a control deck and discussions about why it is a control deck or not. Reading it made me feel like I have to give my own input on the matter, and my own thoughts were too long for a Reddit comment, so I’m posting them here in the hopes that I can start a more educated discussion on the issue.

I have played my fair share of them over the years, both casually and competitively. They all have one thing in common – you have your own deck and play against an opponent’s deck.

A Quick Start to TES:L Versus Arena

Versus Arena? Have you ever played that game mode seriously? Arena is a mode that costs money per entry, dissuading people to try it at their early stages in the game. However, as you gain more confidence with your abilities in the game, you might get curious about this game mode. As with everything in life, first times are usually the worst. You made a questionable draft, faced random dudes with amazing cards, and you ended your arena run with

Fundamentals of Deckbuilding part 1

A (not so) recent Twitter poll revealed this topic to be one many wished to see explored. I refer to deckbuilding not only as the practice of constructing a deck from scratch, but tweaking or tuning an archetype/variant in reaction to a change or metagame. In the case of tuning over creation, each fundamental should be applied as ‘does this still apply?’ so one can still refer to this guide in those cases. This is Part 1 as a nod

How to Win : Mid Battlemage vs the world

Welcome to the first of many articles where I take an in-depth look at how to approach certain matchups. One of the symptoms of TESL being a young game relative to other CCGs is that the ‘canon’ theory is largely unwritten. A lot of the content is broad and abstract, and I suspect that many players will find a more narrow focus useful. Midrange Battlemage (Mid BM) is a wonderful deck, one of my favourites. There’s merit to questioning whether
