Patch Notes v0.13.3

3/14/2019 10:58:57 PM

Patch Notes v0.13.2

3/7/2019 7:34:34 PM

Tweaking of life totals to influence the timeless struggle of rush vs. control aside, this is another light patch to fix small issues that would start to feel big if left alone for a full cycle.

Features & Bug Fixes

  • Increased base player life by 5 (from 20 to 25)

  • Added “enhanced combat preview” option to game options

  • Hide minicard when dragging deck in editor

  • Bots cannot currently queue up with players via the “Match with AI challengers” check box in 2v2


  • Samosek, the Living Sword

    • TRIGGER: After enemy minions deal combat damage to a player they take 1 damage → After your opponent's minions deal combat damage to a player they take 1 damage

This change merely constrains how the artifact works in 2v2, and will need another small future change to fully “flip” the trigger around. For now, this wording is somewhat weird but accurate.

Player Life

Average pvp game times are a little longer than ideal, partly because the longer players live, the more turns their paths have to generate small amounts of life. With most of them switching over to a flat starting life bonus, we’ll no doubt need to collect more data and make further adjustments to individual paths.

  • Starting life baseline lowered from 25 to 20

  • Path interactions with life have been adjusted

    • Disk of Circadia:

    • COST: 5[G]GG → 5[G]G

  • Chort Stag

    • ABILITY: Reduces damage taken in combat to 3 → 2

  • Dark Passenger

    • COST: 3[O]O → 2[O]O

  • Dire Benediction

    • SPELL: Give a minion +2/+0 and 'Sacrifice at end of turn unless it attacked or was just created' → Cast on a minion to deal damage to the player opposing it equal to the minion's strength, then it has 0 strength

  • Einherjar Thane

    • ABILITY: Fully heals whenever another minion dies → Fully heals whenever an enemy minion dies

  • Forge Elemental (added to hand by the Fires of Creation path)

    • DEMISE: You are granted 1 life → Deal 1 damage to your opponent

See Player Life section for more context.

  • Forked Lightning

    • COST: 2[B] → 3[B]

    • SPELL: Deal 2 damage to the occupant of a lane and 1 damage to adjacent lanes → Deal 3 damage to the occupant of a lane and 2 damage to adjacent lanes

    • DEMISE: Deal damage to your opponent and all enemy minions equal to 🗲 → Deal damage to your opponent and all enemy minions equal to strength

Swapping the scaling fantasy away from raw time spent on the board and toward being more interactive with other cards.

    • SIZE: 5/7 → 6/8

    • ABILITY: Armor 1 → Piercing

    • NEW: Overrun

  • Lavish Proxy

  • Mandatory Vigor

    • SPELL: Deal 2 damage to one of your minions and restore action to it → Give one of your minions -2/-0 until end of turn and restore action to it

Quickly learning that the lower a cantrip’s cost goes, the greater our scrutiny needs to be. Goal here is to broaden the range of minions that can be… “encouraged” while highlighting the spell’s utility over raw offensive momentum.

  • Mend (power)

    • NAME: Rejuvenate → Mend

It was surprisingly tricky to talk about powers without tripping over the verbal difference between this and Reanimate.

  • Ollama Ring

    • RARITY: Uncommon → Rare

Swapping rarities with Pandemic to better reflect impact and desirability.

  • Pandemic

    • COST: 3[Y] → 2[Y]

    • RARITY: Rare → Uncommon

Rarity swapped with Ollama Ring to better reflect desirability and impact.

    • TYPE: Desert Spell → Desert Enchantment

  • Twin Junah

    • ABILITY: Both twins get Overrun and Regen 1… → Regen 3

  • Verdant Jungle

    • REWORK: You have ❶ additional maximum mana → While occupied, you have ❶ additional maximum mana

    • GROWTH: Occupying minion gets ‘@: Gain ❶ temporary mana’ → When you create a minion in this lane, gain ❶ temporary mana

  • Vibrant Quetzal

    • AWAKEN: You are granted 3 life → 2 life

  • Zolea, the Unclean

    • COST: 4[Y]Y → 5[Y]Y

    • ULTIMATE: -5🗲@ → -6🗲@: You are branded with ‘At the end of your opponent’s turn they lose 5 life’

This should slightly complicate or limit some of his combo potential, but we’re probably going to have to keep an eye on this angel for a while.

  • Shroud of the Pit

    • ENERGY: 3 → 4

    • PASSIVE: At the start of your turn, gets +2🗲 → At the start of your turn, gets +1🗲

  • To Heaven and Back

    • ANGEL BUFF: +2/+2, Agile, and its mana cost reduced by ➋ → +1/+1, Agile, and its mana cost reduced by ➋

  • Parsa Recruit (created by Eager Recruit)

    • SIZE: 2/1 → 1/1

  • Parsa Regulars

    • ABILITY: [Demise]: Add a 1/1 Parsa Recruit to your hand → [Demise]: Add a 2/1 Eager Recruit to your hand

  • Rainbow’s End

    • At the end of your turn, draw the top card of your deck if it’s an enchantment.

    • ULTIMATE COST: 4🗲 → 5🗲

  • Scion of Pride

    • SIZE: 5/5 → 4/4

  • Vengeful Heirloom

    • ABILITY: Give a friendly minion +2/+1 and '[Demise]: Add a Vengeful Heirloom spell to your hand'. Banish this after casting → Give a friendly minion +2/+1 and '[Demise]: At the end of your turn, return Vengeful Heirloom to your hand from the boneyard'.

Known Issues

  • Bug: when you replace an enchantment occupied by a minion that’s damaged to the point that it would die without that enchantment (indicated by purple health), it will die even though the new enchantment would theoretically keep it alive.

  • Bug: when moving a minion from one enchantment to another where the minion would die without the benefit of the first enchantment (indicated by purple health), it may die even though the new enchantment would theoretically keep it alive.


Patch Notes v0.11

11/9/2018 2:34:12 AM

Orange Faction

  • Sixty-six new cards now appear in Core packs!

Features & Bug Fixes

  • New Path: Rainbow’s End (open a weekly chest or beat Gauntlet III for Paths & Powers)

  • Deck Tracker UI now helps you remember what’s left in your deck, (pull it in from the right-hand side of the screen).

    • Pips: Green = In deck, Gray = Not in deck, Orange = Burned

  • Social features have started to appear! You can follow other players in game. More social features will roll out in future patches.

  • Fixed a bug where in the Disk of Circadia mirror match, flipping to night while the other Disk is in day would remove the slayer granted by the other Disk.

  • Fixed a bug where Disk of Circadia’s discard ability wouldn’t allow you to change your selection.

  • Fixed a bug where the effects of pack buff (including Pack Mentality, Pack Trooper, Sons of the Pack, Volkov Pointman), wouldn’t take into account certain triggers (such as change in controller via Traitorous Murmur).

  • Fixed a bug where slayer wasn’t applying to minions with 0 strength.

  • Fixed a bug that was causing Foul Harvest to award twice the temporary mana.

  • When queuing for a casual 1v1 match, you can choose to only match with AI challengers if you don’t want to play against a human.

  • Removed exploit where you could dodge matches against human players in 1v1 ranked and arena modes.

  • Beating a player in ranked will always reward at least as much RP as beating a bot (and usually a lot more).

  • We think we found a work around for the “GetThreadContext” crash bug that affected Steam players who are running certain anti-virus software. Please let us know in discord if this crash continues to occur.

  • “Decklet” panels now feature Path, Power, and Color indicators in deck selection.

Economy Revamp

  • You no longer get duplicates of Mythic cards when opening packs.

    • (Once you own all Mythic rarity cards, it is possible to get duplicates.)

  • Coin economy reworked to remove the daily coin cap.

  • Lots of tweaks and adjustments coming in hot, for planned details see:

Known Issues

  • Social features are brand new and likely super janky, but have fun!

  • AI sometimes hangs, requiring a battle restart.

  • Redeeming packs with a code can mess up the pack count, forcing you to exit and re-enter the pack opening screen.

  • AI will always hang when thinking about Mardyakhor’s Demise ability.


  • Awakened Huntress (Transformed Freki Huntress)

    • SIZE: 4/4 → 4/3

  • Bulwark

    • NEW: gives a minion +0/+1 in addition to Armor 1

  • Brising Necklace

    • ABILITY: When you cast an enchantment, draw a card → Awaken: Draw your next enchantment

    • NEW: (3): Move an enchantment from your hand to the bottom of your deck in order to draw a card

  • Circle of Protection

    • SPELL: All your minions get Armor 2 until your next turn → All your minions get Armor 2 and Warded until your next turn

  • Gallows Boy

    • COST: 2[G]G → 2[G]

  • Gemcutter Spider

    • COST: 3[Y]YY → 3[Y]Y

    • ABILITY: Is created with strength and health equal to the number of gems in your mana bar → Is created with 2 strength and health for every unique color of gem you have burned

  • Golden Axolotl

    • SIZE: 1/1 → 2/1

    • ABILITY: Gets +1/+1 when you burn a card → Gets +0/+1 when you burn a card

  • Grinning Kolobok

    • NEW: 1energy, Swift, When moving for the first time each turn, +1energy

    • ABILITY: Demise: Gain 2 temporary mana → Demise: Gain 1 maximum mana for every 2energy

The last iteration proved to be too punishing, so we’re seizing an opportunity to improve on both the design and the thematic by turning the little pancake that shouldn’t into a fleeing source of maximum mana for your opponent to hunt down.

  • Harvest Behemoth

    • NAME: Harvest Behemoth → Harvester

  • Junkyard Valhalla

    • NEW: Resurrected Dredge minions are also Ephemeral

    • REMOVED: Dredge minions are no longer banished when killed

We actually hadn’t implemented Ephemeral back when this enchantment was first created, so this should bring it in line with other similar mechanics and allow it to synergize with Demise effects.

  • Ollama Ring

    • COST: 3[Y]Y → 4[Y]Y

  • Ourania Muse

    • ACTIVE: Divination 2, then draw a card → You lose 1 life, Divination 2, then draw a card

    • PASSIVE: At the start of your turn, +1e and you lose 1 life → At the start of your turn, +1e

Moving the loss of life from the passive to the active halves the pain and grants a more controlled feel that should hopefully keep the celestial muse out of the patch notes for a change.

  • Pandemic

    • COST: 4[Y] → 3[Y]

  • Rejuvenate

    • POWER: Once per turn, heal all your minions for 1 → Once per turn, heal all your minions for 1 and gain 1 life

  • Rewind Hex

    • SPELL: Return an enchantment to its owner's hand along with a minion if occupied → Return an enchantment to the top of its owner's deck; if occupied, return the minion to its owner's hand

  • Shopworn Bull

    • ACTIVATE: Draw a card. Then, pick one to shuffle back into your deck → Draw a card. Then, pick one to put back and reshuffle your deck

Mechanics like Burning and Divination emphasize limited control over your draw order (which is why we typically randomize the location of individual cards without reordering your entire deck), but our fine-china-loving bull isn’t your typical Minotaur, and while he’d never break your belongings in the process of rummaging for antiques, your deck may be left in some disarray.

  • Spellflux Cauldron

    • ABILITY: When you cast a spell, all your minions get +1/+0 until end of turn → When you cast a spell, all your minions get +1/+0 until your next turn

  • Sweet Spinnerette

    • ABILITY: Gain 1 maximum mana → Awaken: Give another minion Ephemeral

With the Kolobok taking up her previous mechanical identity, it’s high time for the Spinnerette’s mechanics and flavor to better reflect her unsettling visage.

  • Zmey Hydra

    • COST: 4[G]GG → 4[G]G

    • ABILITY: If wounded at the start of your turn, fully heals and gets +1/+1 → If wounded at the start of your turn, fully heals and gets +2/+2


  • 66 New cards (Featuring many new artists!)

  • General UI/Menu improvement

  • New Path art on gameboard, and related icons.

  • New Gameboard HUD designs


  • New first pass “feedback” FX for all 66 orange cards

  • Multicolor FX for Rainbow’s End

  • Overrun (Revise)

9/20/2018 5:25:58 PM

Features & Bug Fixes

  • Fixed bug preventing players playing in the browser from logging into the game for the first time.

  • Dragging to activate a power no longer interacts with cards in your hand.

  • Card text now scales better to fit the card. (The most noticeable change is that path card text is no longer tiny).

  • Fixed a bug that could cause a blank panel to appear in the main menu when viewing profiles.

  • Fixed an issue that was preventing Disk of Circadia Day from forcing you to discard.

  • Re-fixed an issue that allowed AI to target minions on the board with Wake the Bones.

  • Fixed various bugs associated with known cards on deck.

  • Rotated the back player’s deck count to be right-side up for reading.

Known Issues

  • When multiple players are running Disk of Circadia, the flips to Night side can prematurely end Slayer 1 on minions.


  • Disk of Circadia

    • NIGHT: ...all your minions that didn't attack heal for 2 at the end of your turn until Day → ...all your minions that didn't attack heal for 1 at the end of your turn until Day

    • DAY: ...all your minions get [Focused 1] until Night → ...all minions get [Slayer_1] until Night

  • Added new Daily Missions.

  • New card wheel interface (UI for picking through cards in boneyards, selecting cards to discard, etc.) should make it easier to select between larger number of cards.

  • Advanced search commands added to card filtering (see “Search” below for specifics).

  • Crafting card filter is now a simpler, two-way toggle.

  • Added a button to the end game screen which allows players to review the board/emote after a game.

  • Slayer now works on defense.

  • Berserkr Sickness, Wings of Abbadon, and Alkonost kill effects are now “sacrifice” and can be used on warded minions.

  • Fixed a bug where it wouldn’t allow you to go into the deck editor if you’ve deleted all of your decks.

  • Fixed a bug where multiple Singing Stones wouldn’t correctly apply their bonus when moving into enchantments.

  • Fixed a bug where a Ravine Guardian’s stats would be incorrectly calculated when on the board with a Revolutionary Totem in play

  • Fixed a bug where Nazca Memorial’s buff remained even after the memorial got removed from play.

  • Fixed a bug where the Goliath Spider created by The Goliath’s Web when placed across from a Hekate’s Wheel would not properly have its deadly ability suppressed.

  • Fixed a bug where minions created on or moving into a suppressed Mistwalker Gate would improperly receive a free move action.

  • Fixed a bug where sourced buffs from dying minions would incorrectly be applied if their death and the application of the buff happens at the “same time”. For example, summoning a Sapo, the Devourer next to a Freki Sidecar would incorrectly leave the Sapo with rush.

  • Fixed a bug where Extract Life cast on a sapped Maze of Iyatiku could give the casting player an incorrect amount of life.

  • Fixed a bug where minions returned to hand by Garden of Iriy would display incorrect values.

  • Dora’s activated ability now targets decks rather than players.

  • You can now queue playing a card whose casting cost depends on the burning of another card before the burn animation for that card has completed.

Flashing Purple

“Life support”: Minion will die if suppressed.



Bright Yellow

  • Hovering or zooming a minion card while the minion is in play will show fractional health if the minion’s current health isn’t equal to its maximum health. For example, a 4 health minion dealt 1 point of damage will show its health as ¾ on its tooltip card.

  • Improved visual quality of card highlights.

  • Deck editor now prompts you if you attempt to exit without setting a path and power (if available).

  • Enforce maximum of 100 decks per player and 200 cards per deck.

  • The “goes second” modifiers for paths are placeholder while we evaluate options.

  • Melinoë, Soul Shepherd may not add Forlorn Spirits to your hand for minions destroyed at the “same” time as her. We intend to fix this, but the proper solution is complicated enough (with attendant high probability of unanticipated side effects) that we’ll put it off until we have ample resources to do more thorough testing.


  • Bog Basilisk

    • COST: 4[G]G → 4[G]

  • Born Again

    • COST: 2[G]G → 2[G]

  • Disk of Circadia

    • DAY: Gain 1 life, discard a card, and all your minions get [Overrun] until end of turn. → Gain 1 life, discard a card, and all your minions get [Focused 1] until Night.

    • NIGHT: Divination 2 and draw a card. → [Divination 2], draw a card, and all your minions that didn't attack heal for 2 at the end of your turn until Day.

    • NEW: Starts on Night, or Day if you go second.

  • Enchanteater

    • COST: 4[Y]Y → 4[Y]

  • Enyo, Murder’s Muse

    • COST: 5[R]RRR → 5[R]RR

    • ACTIVE: @, Sap 7: Empower with [Frenzy] and [Immortal]. → @: If she has 8 or more health, empower with [Frenzy] and [Immortal].

This should go a long way toward making Enyo’s power easier to understand.

  • Foul Harvest

    • BOUNTY: 2 life and (2) temporary mana → 4 life and (2) temporary mana.

  • Godsblud Transfusion

    • BUFF: +2/+2 and Regen 3 → +1/+1 and Regen 3

  • Grinning Kolobok

    • REMOVED: Rush

    • ABILITY: Breach, Sap 1: Gain (2) temporary mana. → [Demise]: Gain (2) temporary mana.

Part of a longer term effort to solidify color identities, (green desire being tactics over speed) and many of the less combo-oriented pancake uses already involved waiting a turn to attack.

  • Journey of Souls

    • NEW: Starts with 1 soul if you go second.

  • Metzin Giant

    • COST: 5[Y] → 5[Y]Y

  • Red Carnival

    • COST: 3[R]R → 3[R]

  • Serpent Den

    • TEMPLE SNAKES: Rush → [Awaken]: Gets a free move action.

With the den snaking up the battlefield immediately, it’s become more about speed than generation. Them sneks had rush primarily so they could move and avoid clogging their lane up, but why slither away when you can attack bigger minions?

  • Thunderclap

    • SPELL: Deal 2 damage to all your opponent's minions. → Deal 2 damage to your opponent and all enemy minions.

For the cost, this spell could stand to clap your opponent as well. Also adjusted wording to better reflect the actual behavior in 2v2.

  • Turn of Seasons

    • NEW: Starts in Winter, or Spring if you go second.

  • Wendish Giant

    • COST: 4[G] → 4[G]G

  • Yahui

    • COST: 2[Y] → 2[Y]Y

(Main menu, Play sub menu, Collection sub menu, main menu icons, and various Header art for each sub menu.)

  • Added a couple of scenes to the beginning of the story sequences

  • Continued tweaks to new and existing path placements

  • New Power icons and card art for Foresight and Reanimate

  • Distressed, burnt card frame.

  • Starter Pack and Redemption Codes panel in Store

  • New card art: (Orange cards only available in Story mode.)

    • Cobblejack

    • Forge Elemental

    • Dune Cat (O)

    • Twinfire Zealot (O)

    • Vital Proxa (O)

    • Parsa Fanatic (O)

    • Dust Devil (O)

    • Parsa Clarion (O)

    • Sandscaping (O)

    • Blood Dolls (R)


  • Armor proc

  • Rejuvenate Power (Revise)

  • Eirsdottir (Revise)

  • Impel Power (Revise)

  • Reanimate Power (Stand-in WIP)

  • Scarred (Stand-in WIP)

  • Foresight Power

  • Koschei The Deathless (Reanimate VFX)

  • Zolea The Unclean (Brand VFX)

  • Bela Witch Queen (Modify VFX)


You can now search for artist names and text in tooltip cards.

Search is now word-based, with a default conjunction of AND (also & or &&).

For example, if you type MEGA BOMB, it will show cards that contain both “MEGA” and “BOMB”, not necessarily “MEGA BOMB”.

If you want to search for a phrase, enclose it in quotes, ie “MEGA BOMB”.

OR (also | or ||) can be used to specify either-or.

For example, if you type ⸢MEGA OR BOMB⸥, it will search for cards that contain either “MEGA” or “BOMB”.

NOT (also !) can be used to specify not.

For example, if you type ⸢MEGA !BOMB⸥, it will show cards that have the word “MEGA” but not the word “BOMB”.

You can use parentheses to specify order of operations.

You can search for minions using #/# notation.

For example, if you type ⸢3/3⸥, it will show only minions that have 3 strength and 3 health.

If you type ⸢3/*⸥, it will show only minions that have 3 strength.

You can use the following variables:

STRENGTH (also STR) A minion’s strength
HEALTH (also HP) A minion’s health
BLUE (also BLU) A card’s blue gem cost
RED A card’s red gem cost
YELLOW (also YLW) A card’s yellow gem cost
GREEN (also GRN) A card’s green gem cost
GEMS (also GEM) A card’s total gem cost
MANA A card’s mana cost
COUNT (also NUM) The number of cards you own
NEW Whether or not the card is new

In conjunction with the following operators:

= Equals

< Less than

> Greater than

>= Greater than or equal-to

<= Less than or equal-to

For example, if you type ⸢STR>MANA AND GEM=1⸥, it will show minion cards whose strength is greater than the mana cost and only contain a single gem in the casting cost.
