Faeria Friday: Ebb and flow

Written by Gary Morris  |  11/04/2016

Announcing the spookiest costumes, the next Monthly Cup guest, and all you need to know about the next season reset!

A new build-order strategy: The Forest Kick

Costume Contest Winners

Thank you to everyone who participated in last weekend’s costume contest! The Faeria team voted on all the entries, and here are the top three:

From: @Matheusakimo, @GamingTikup, and @aehoshasss respectively.

Those aren’t the only ones we liked though, there were just too many good ones to choose from. While we originally said we’d be awarding 5 winners an Egg avatar, we’ve decided to award 9 instead!

If you submitted and didn’t win, don’t worry - we loved each and every one of them. We look forward to doing more events like this in the future.

New Cards?

One of the most common questions we hear is:

“New cards, when?!”

Don't worry, we're as anxious as you are.

While we don’t want to promise any specific dates at this point, we are currently actively testing and iterating on the next batch of new cards to be added to Faeria. The addition of the new cards will accompany a few balance changes as well, and we’re pretty excited about it all. We expect the set of cards and changes to be ready for deployment by Christmas.

Monthly Cup Special Guest

We’re happy to have Hunden competing in the next Monthly Cup, taking place Saturday, November 12th!

Hunden is a Swedish Magic: The Gathering player who competes weekly in the Stockholm Modern Champion League with his playgroup, Den Magiska Fjädern.

Having previously qualified for the Magic Pro Tour in Japan, he describes himself very much as a classic “Johnny” type player - often using unorthodox decks that catch his opponents off-guard. Directly quoting him, he “plays Magic on hard mode.” We’re looking forward to seeing what he brings to our Monthly Cup.

Season’s End

Like the reliable ebb and flow of the tide, our current Ranked and Pandora seasons will be resetting on the first Monday of the month, which happens to be this coming Monday, November 7th.

Don't forget that CEST (GMT+2) has changed to CET (GMT+1) recently.

Each season will have unique card backs for both Ranked mode and Pandora. In the above image: The current season’s Ranked card backs are on the left, Pandora on the right.

Vote for your Favorite

Voting for the current Monthly Cup closes at 23:59 CET on Sunday, November 6th.

Ladder positions (for the Monthly Cup) will be locked in on Monday, November 7th at 12:00pm (Noon) CET, and the ladder resets shortly thereafter.

Have a great weekend.
