Today we celebrate the holidays by reflecting back on all our Monthly Cups.

A new build-order strategy: The Forest Kick

December card backs

It's cold outside, so stay in and earn some card backs.

You have until Tuesday, January 2nd to freeze these on to your account.
Edit: Due to national holidays, the next ladder and Pandora ranking reset is scheduled for TUESDAY, January 2nd, at 12pm Noon CET.
