My name is Moonfassa. I started Faeria around 2016 and it quickly became my favourite game, replacing my previous interest in MTG. After a few years break, I started Twitch streaming and making YouTube content. The community was super encouraging, which is rare for media platforms, and I soon found myself creating numerous guide videos and other content.
As for experience, I've come first place in tournaments and on the ranked ladder. So hopefully I know what I'm talking about by this point and this article will help some of you to improve and have a better experience overall in Faeria!
The official Faeria Discord is the main place people use for communication. There's lots of help for newer players and people looking to fight the co-op dragons.

Brand New to the Game?
Welcome to the game! Below, are some helpful links for those who have just purchased the game or are returning after a long break.
The ABSOLUTE Beginner's Guide to Faeria
Faeria Through the Eyes of a Beginner
Learn what cards are worth crafting near the start of the game and how to fight with a bare card collection.
Here are a few resources to help you learn good deckbuilding techniques, or how to pilot decks already built by me and the community.
If you just want to jump into it (sea what I did there?), I'll present you with my own decklists in this series and walk you through how to play them, why I made certain card choices, and how you can edit the lists to your liking.
The first 5 videos are DLC free and I've put a coloured book in the title of each video representing their difficulty to pilot:
The first video was the first guide video I ever made so please excuse the poor quality. I've been considering remaking some of my earlier videos now that I have better equipment and technique.
Building A Deck From Scratch
There are a lot of cards in Faeria and it can be quite overwhelming for a new player to build a deck from scratch. The board also makes deckbuilding pretty unique compared to other card games.
Note that this is currently linked to an older account system and has not yet been fixed, so any new players will not be able to post here (but you can still view the lists).
Starting creatures, as I mention throughout my guides, are creatures that can be played early to collect Faeria for you. This calculator can help you see how likely it is to find one in your starting hand.
In Faeria's mulligan system, you are shown 3 cards at the start of a match, with the option to toss away any of those that you choose and draw replacement cards. The cards you toss will never be seen in those replacement cards (even if you had more copies in the deck). This means that the probability of finding a starting creature will be greater if you have many 3x copies of cards in your deck, and lower if you have many 1x copies.
This section will be for information on specific cards, DLC cards, or just cards in general
DLC's, contrary to popular belief, are not at all necessary to do well or have fun in this game. The base set has exceptionally strong cards that hold their own. Having said that, there are plenty of great cards in the expansion DLC's as well. Summerflame's guide on the DLC expansions, balance changes to DLC cards, and other frequently asked quesitons.

A few cards haven't been updated since balance changes happened so just be aware of that also.

Knowing the meta is super important when you want to build competitive decks and prepare yourself for cards you may run into at higher levels. Here is a series of tierlists I made with some help from the community.
Custom Card Creator
Show off your creativity by making your own custom Faeria card. Community-made cards can be found in the official Faeria discord.
How to Counter Certain Archetypes
After getting a handle on the basics and finding some decks you enjoy, this section will provide you with some more detailed tactics and strategies to start improving your games.
How to Open in Detail
However, the concepts he explains about starting land placement are still very relevant today.
Tournaments are a much different experience from the ranked ladder, as they involve bringing 4 different decks, deck banning, and a time bank.

Zorni's Ultimate Tournament Strategy Guide
My Tournament Analysis Series
A series where I analyze my past tournament matches over Twitch, talk about the plays, and have a discussion with chat.
I beat all the solo missions a long time ago so I don't have much to say about these. But here are some links from other community members who have created guides for them.
Aquablad vs the World Bosses
Many of the world bosses are pretty challenging and they will usually require you to design a specific deck to fight each one.
Building massive stats can work if they don't use hard removal, or even OTK combos. You'll want to find some way to efficiently remove their threatening creatures while still having a reasonable win condition, which will of course vary on the boss.
Remember, you're facing a pre-programmed AI which makes their choices predictable. Use that to your advantage by testing certain strategies and seeing how they respond.
Some specific cards that are very useful in these missions are Sharra, Bone Collector, Seifer, Possessed Ursus, Gabrian Enchantment, Punishment, Barter, and anything with deathtouch.
ALL puzzles are currently solvable (2021)
These ones won't be available in the puzzles screen until you beat them in the solo missions.
I couldn't find an organized guide that contained the rest of the puzzles so if anyone knows of a decent one let me know. Maybe I'll have to make one in the future sometime
This puzzle was proposed by Hunter, the master of puzzles himself. Solution by Summerflame here.
