Meta Monday – CrownRoach

Welcome back, and as always, thanks for reading! We have an exciting topic for today’s Meta Monday that is a personal favorite: CrownRoach! As we took a couple weeks to try on some more tier oriented decks for this segment, we wanted to return to the original idea of “off meta” decks that are fun to ladder with. Before I go into detail on that, Eternal players received some really great news last week about a new feature that debuts

Meta Monday – Icaria Blue

Thanks for stopping by and reading this weeks edition of “Meta Monday”! It is the last week of the month, so right now things are all over the place. For some, this is the highlight of the month, a playground of jank! For others, this is the home stretch to masters, and making an appropriate meta call with a specific deck can be challenging. On weeks where there is an ETS, you can somewhat predict what you will see based

Meta Monday – Feln Tempo

Hello and welcome back to another instillation of Meta Monday! I have decided to include a short review of the last week, through my experience, in the past few posts. This has been super enjoyable for me to do, so I plan to continue, and hope it can help people get an idea of what to look out for or what might be fun to play. This week was a big week for Eternal! We are coming off the back

Meta Monday – Elysian Beatdown

The past week has been a big one for Eternal! There was a big patch that shook things up a few weeks back, then an expansion just last week! We did not get a ton of time in the post 1.28.7 meta before Dead Reckoning came out, which was unfortunate because things seemed to be in a REALLY interesting spot. Then again, who can say no to new and exciting content? The expansion has changed things up dramatically. With the

Meta Monday – Tokens

With some recent changes to cards, a new weekly tournament, as well as a turn of the season, the meta is still establishing itself. “Removal Pile” is still putting up solid performances, with its Jund-like ability to adapt to the metagame. The deck is loaded removal, lifesteal and resilient threats that can lineup with just about anything. One of the most popular decks in last week’s ETS Top 8 was “Icaria Blue“. A variation of the list found its way into

Meta Monday – Chalice

Chalice has been a popular control deck in the game for some time. It’s ability to clog up the board with small creatures, reset when things get too out of hand, and generate card advantage from buffing it’s board state is a force to be reckoned with. The deck is fairly low to the ground and inexpensive, so accessible to newer players, or players wanting to try out control. However it rewards format knowledge and tight play more so than most

Meta Monday – Charge Rod

With the uptick in popularity of the “Charge Rod” archetype, thanks to recent strong finishes by Kangbreath and Niamster, we wanted to have some discussion on this list. The deck plays a ton of powerful haymakers, who are game enders in decks built around them. This deck aims to combine the power of all of their key words, using Divining Rod to potentially cast some off of the top of the deck. With Crest of Impulse, you can sometimes assist with

Meta Monday – Removal Pile

We are happy to introduce the first installation of our new weekly series: “Meta Monday”! The goal is to showcase and discuss a deck capable of competing in the current meta! One of the amazing things about Eternal is that the meta can shift fairly quickly, so if something is unfun or too oppressive, it can be hated out in the matter of a week. This week, we are starting things off with the now popular Removal Pile which is
