While I may not have the most Top 64’s of all the competitors in Eternal, I do have a Top 64, two Top 32’s, and a Finals placing in previous ECQs. In this article

Jennev Primer

Trials of Grodov wasn’t the most well received set to be released in recent months. It didn’t include a Player vs AI campaign to fight through. This was a disappointment to some, while it was a welcome surprise to others, myself included. I didn’t really enjoy having to rip through the campaigns just to get my cards. I never took the time to enjoy the duels, it was always a question of how could I unlock them faster. My suggestion
