    • Two featured decks, picked at random from a curated pool of decks, are made available to each player

    • All forgelings are burnable for mana but not gems. Forgelings can be burnt for mana even if you already have 10 gems.

Action System

The action system has been revised. In general, things work like they did before but additional actions interact in more intuitive ways. The most noticeable changes include: the removal of all ‘restore action’ effects (these have been replaced in all cases with ‘grant action’ effects), minions can now have multiple standard actions, and Energy Actions have become Utility Actions, which are now used in a wider variety of places. In addition, abilities that grant specific types of actions (like Swift and Frenzy) have had their functionality standardized. What follows is a detailed description of how all of the actions work and how they are tracked. In general, actions should now work how you expect if you only read the basic tooltips, and feedback on any dissonance between those tooltips and these more detailed action rules would be greatly appreciated. 


  • Standard Action (▼)

    • Can be used to attack, move, or activate an ability. Usually, minions don’t have one the turn they are summoned, but gain one at the start of their turn.

  • Rush Action

    • Rush actions are like standard actions and are granted by Rush. Only one can be used per turn and they are used before standard actions.

  • Move Action

    • Can be used to move and are used before standard actions.

  • Swift Action

    • Swift actions can also be used to move and are granted by Swift. Only one can be used per turn and they are used before move actions.

  • Frenzy Action

    • Frenzy actions can be used to attack and are granted by Frenzy after attacking. Only one frenzy action can be used per turn and they are used before standard actions.

  • Utility Action (▽)

    • Can be used to activate abilities requiring utility actions. Usually, Minions, Artifacts, and Brands get one per turn including the turn they come under your control.

Action Rules

  • General

    • Minions get a standard action at the start of their turn.

    • Minions, Artifacts, and Brands get a utility action when they come under your control and at the start of their turn.

    • Minions can accumulate and spend multiple actions.

    • Minions lose all of their actions at the end of their turn.

  • Rush

    • When a minion with Rush is created or gains Rush on the turn it was created, it gets a Rush Action. If the minion also has Swift, it gets a Swift Action. If the minion has Frenzy and attacks, it gets a Frenzy Action.

    • Minions can only use one Rush Action per turn.

    • Minions losing Rush also lose their Rush Action.

    • If the minion loses Rush on the turn they came under your control, they also lose their Swift and Frenzy Action from Rush.

  • Swift

    • Minions with Swift get a Swift Action at the start of their turn. A Swift Action can only be used to move.

    • A Minion gaining Swift also gets a Swift Action if it was created on a previous turn.

    • A Minion gaining Swift also gets a Swift Action if it was created on this turn and has Rush. This Swift Action only can be used while the minion has Rush.

    • A Minion can only use one Swift Action per turn.

    • Minions losing Swift also lose their Swift Action.

  • Frenzy

    • When a minion with Frenzy attacks, it gains a Frenzy Action.

    • When a minion gains Frenzy and has used a standard action to attack, it gains a Frenzy Action.

    • When a minion gains Frenzy and has used a Rush Action to attack and has Rush, it gains a Frenzy Action.

    • A Minion can only use one Frenzy Action per turn.

    • Frenzy actions gained from attacking with Rush Actions can only be used if the minion has Rush.

    • Minions losing Frenzy also lose their Frenzy Action.

  • Performing Actions

    • Moving a minion will consume one action. The minion will first consume Swift Actions, then other move actions, Rush Actions, and finally standard actions.

    • Attacking with a minion will consume one of its actions. The minion will first consume Frenzy Actions, then Rush Actions, and finally standard actions.

    • Activating an ability that requires an action will first use Rush Actions, then standard actions.


  • Production art for several purple cards, including Simuzen, Shinobi of Smoke, Insatient, and Cloud Pillar Peak

Patch Notes v0.15

6/21/2019 8:23:20 PM

This is the Purplest patch we’ve ever done! Purple cards are available to Q-mode testers. Q-mode is a testing-only mode that allows you to build and test decks with cards you do not own. If you were level 15 before this patch deployed, you will automatically be given Q-mode access; you just need to enable it in the Options menu. Other high-level players who have been active in the community can request Q-mode access on Discord from rhino_turbo. Purple cards will be available for all players later this summer.

Features & Bug Fixes

  • Enabled Gallery in the Collections menu. Use arrow keys or click/touch left and right sides of the screen to advance selected image.

  • Updated Faction section of the Guide

  • Matchmaking: Added ability to leave the matchmaking queue screen while remaining in queue. Your current deck when entering the queue is displayed on the matchmaking screen and will be used for the queued match. Changes to the deck while in queue WILL be reflected in the queued match (deleting or otherwise invalidating the queued deck is not allowed while in queue). A matchmaking status notification will be shown on screen while in queue and clicking the glowing ‘match ready’ notification will bring you back to the appropriate matchmaking screen to begin the match.

  • A ‘Requeue’ button is now shown at the end of the match for all game modes unless the player was added to the match via a challenge (we plan on enabling this for challenges in the future).

  • Increased card art texture quality on Android and Web builds

  • Added turn timer warning tones

  • New music stinger when starting Mythgard

  • Key music stingers, e.g. drums at the start of a match, now play on the sounds effects channel (instead of the music channel)

  • Fix text not showing up on cards when spectating a match

  • Fixed a bug where suppressed keyword abilities were being shown on the card

Known Issues

Infuse (power)

  • ACTIVE: Once per turn, give a friendly minion +1/+1 until end of turn → Once per turn, give a minion +1/+1 until end of turn

Undoing this change, which was in anticipation of a stealthy new mechanic... we’ve got it figured out better now though, so feel free to buff your enemies into Gigantomachia range once again!

Kushiel the Unforgiving

  • ABILITY: After killing a minion in combat, gets a free attack action → Gets another action after killing a minion in combat

Converting this into a full action avoids a bug with the way it overlapped with Frenzy, but it also just adds a bit of flexibility.

Lamp of Wonders

  • COST: 3[O] → 2[O]


  • Updated card art for Detained/Deported and Ingrid Stormdottir

Patch Notes v0.14

4/26/2019 10:22:32 PM

Given the size of this patch, it almost feels like it would be faster to tell you what hasn’t changed, but that would be less entertaining to pore over than the stacked list below. Give that scrolling finger a workout by digging into balance changes that refocus the meta on tactical minion combat, crafting and rewards tuning, social features, and more stuff than is reasonable to synopsize!

Revamped Card Layout

  • The new layout has the burn indicator in the top-left corner instead of the middle-right corner in order to make the most relevant information visible in the hand while better matching cardlet slugs in the deck editor

  • A much larger art window and more neutral frame color to conflict less with the wide variation in card art color palette

  • Enlarged and cleaned up info area to make it easier to read the card text

(Note that this is still a work in progress and we expect to iterate on it further as we approach beta)

Features & Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue causing reconnecting to the server to occasionally fail

  • Artifact Durability (see independent section below)

  • Added ability to queue 2v2 with a preselected ally or queue with one ally and one opponent or enter a 2v2 match with all four players preselected (2v2 challenges)

  • Added Find Player button to the social panel which allows search for online and offline players by name. Also added a filter for the social panel views using the new filter... text box

  • Improved pack opening experience. Added sound effects and animation. The cards now flip automatically on mouse over except for the rare slot, which requires a click. Note this is still a work in progress

  • Made adjustments to ranked matchmaking and RP rewards. We’ve tightened the matchmaking window and lowered the amount of RP deducted for a loss, especially in the lower tiers. Furthermore, there is now a soft floor on ranks, where a loss will only deduct enough RP to put a player at 0 RP in their current rank -- falling rank will only occur if another loss is incurred

  • Added Maat rewards (see the fourth panel in your player profile). Earn wild cards (see below) and card material/trim by accruing maat. Maat is intended to be an additional reward track for social activities. Note: due to a bug that was discovered only at the last minute, gaining maat has been turned off for the current release. We expect to turn the system on in patch 0.14.1

  • Added a “good game” emote button which appears at the end of the match

  • Added wild cards, which can be used in place of essence to craft cards of a particular set, rarity, and faction. This system allows us to give more specific rewards, in cases where we don’t want to give out large amounts of essence at once. Due to the aforementioned bug, there will be no way to get wild cards until patch 0.14.1, at which point players should be able get wild cards from maat rewards and randomly in packs

  • Unmake value of mythic rarity cards raised from 500 to 625 essence

  • Added about 600 coins to the average value of the weekly chest, while also making its value a bit more random

  • Added a player guide accessible from the escape menu that contains a glossary, rules reference, and basic faction information. This guide will be expanded as necessary to help clarify keyword, ability, and gameplay rules

  • Fixed a bug preventing starter pack items from being displayed upon purchase

  • Story sequences now all have custom music and some additional sound effects

  • Added Puzzle 14: The Wall

  • Game mode panels now give more details about possible rewards

  • Challenge games (all players join from a challenge, none from the matchmaking queue) give half rewards.

  • Added adjustable ‘Ambient’ sound volume level

  • Tooltips now appear for card picks in draft

  • Added tooltips for level-up rewards

  • Added pie and curve details to deck histogram tooltips

  • Card material/trim reward text now specifies whether you received a material or a trim

  • Combat preview now properly hidden after using activatable abilities

  • Fixed 2v2 games not being counted towards multiplayer games achievement

  • Fixed a bug that could cause the hand to lock up

  • Improved selection for cards on the edges of hands that have many cards

  • Clarification pass on some card text (has vs gets)

  • Cards that are not picked during Divination are now shuffled (randomly inserted, not on top) into the deck instead of going on bottom This makes it slightly harder to dig for a specific card, but reduces the somewhat hidden weight of divination choices

  • Burning ephemeral cards banishes them instead of inserting them back into the deck

  • Players can no longer gain life from triggered effects after their life is reduced to zero

  • Minions on life support no longer die when replacing a sustaining enchantment with another one or moving from one sustaining enchantment to another

  • Fixed Desert replacing enchantments triggering off non-Deserts via Rainbow’s End

  • Fixed client crash when using Bragi Runesinger’s ultimate ability immediately after burning a lane enchantment

  • Fixed “divination and draw” not triggering “on draw” effects (specific reported bug was that the second draw from Peri at the Gates wasn’t triggering The Stretcher)

  • Fixed not being able to burn after casting Seal of Exile with a full mana bar

  • Seal of Exile now properly constrained to banish only the owner of the target’s minions in 2v2 and not their ally’s cards

  • Stairway to Hades can no longer revive ephemeral minions

  • The To Heaven and Back buff no longer persists when discarded or removed from play

  • “Permanent” buffs (such as To Heaven and Back and Blood Dolls) no longer fall off when a minion is stolen

  • Allfather’s Horn is now banished even if The Recursionist is in play

  • Playing Herald of War onto a Root of the World no longer leaves the Herald with the Root of the World active ability

  • Twin Junah and Twin Blanque no longer claim to have Overrun and Regen 3 by default

  • Orbital Jamming Satellite’s suppression effect should now properly expire at the start of your next turn as opposed to the end of your opponent’s turn

Known Issues

  • Due to a late-breaking bug, the Maat rewards system has been turned off until 14.1

  • Disk of Circadia is refusing to flip and will require a fix

  • The block feature on the Social panel doesn’t work yet

  • Vengeful Heirloom cast on an ally’s minion in 2v2 will not return to your hand

Artifact Changes

Many artifacts now have durability (shown on the card next to their emblem). When damage is dealt to a player, an equal amount of damage carries over to their artifacts, starting with the “outermost” slot. When the durability of an artifact is reduced to zero, it is destroyed. Excess damage automatically applies to the next artifact in line, and so forth.

Many of the artifacts are now stackable. Artifacts in a stack have independent durability.

High-value artifacts needed systemic counterplay that doesn’t require us to push an unhealthy number of hate cards into core.


Heads Up - Text Changes

This patch we’re updating a lot of card rules text to make effects that work the same way share wordings, cutting down on individual cases where wordings differed for arbitrary or stylistic reasons. These tweaks shouldn’t be very disruptive and the functionality is unchanged, (otherwise they’re listed below!) hence this note rather than an exhaustive list.

Alchemical Key

  • NEW: Stacking



  • ACTIVE: ❷@: Give another minion Agile and ‘Is sacrificed after attacking → ❷: Give another minion ‘Sacrifice at end of turn unless it attacked or was just created’

Allfather’s Horn

  • TYPE: Spirit Spell → Valkyrie Spell

  • SPELL: Restore action to all your minions, refresh your mana, and draw a card → Restore action to all your minions, then refresh your mana and gems

To clarify, Horn has always refreshed your gems in addition to your mana as part of its “take another turn”-like flavor, but the additional card may have been a bit strong.

Blackened Jotun

  • NEW: Overrun

Black Hatter

  • NAME: The Black Hatter → Black Hatter

  • COST: 4[B]B → 3[B]B

Bold Omega

  • BREACH: Empower with +2/+1 and Life Tap → Empower with +2/+1

  • NEW: Life Tap

Bolt From the Blue

  • NAME: Bolt From the Blue → Brainstorm

  • COST: 1[B] → 3[B]B

  • SPELL: Deal 1 damage to a minion and draw a card → Draw 2 cards

One of the persistent tuning problems with blue as a faction has been that in addition to being good at area of effect damage and using enchantments to build threatening minions, containing cheap single target removal also makes Norden king of spell-slinging and card efficiency. Big changes like these have meta shaking impact, but are part of a larger effort to solidify faction identity and balance before beta and the wipe.

Bragi Runesinger

  • ENERGY: 3🗲 → 1🗲

  • ACTIVE: -2🗲: Give another minion Warded → -2🗲: Give another minion Frenzy

  • ULTIMATE: -5🗲: Choose and draw up to two enchantments from your deck → -4🗲: Choose and draw up to three enchantments from your deck

Breath of Wintertide

  • COST: 3[B] → 2[B]

Calliope Muse

  • SIZE: 3/3 → 3/2


  • COST: 6[B]B → 6[B]BB

  • DAMAGE: 6 → 5

Unpacking the differences between a game like Mythgard and all the more open-fielded card combat systems out there comes with surprising little tuning revelations, and promoting positional, strategic play means that board clearing spells don’t get to be quite as crushingly competitive.

Chort Stag

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

  • NEW: Overrun

  • AWAKEN: Return a minion from your boneyard to your hand

Circle of Protection

  • SPELL: Give all your minions Armor 2 and Warded until your next turn → Give all friendly minions Armor 2 and Warded until your next turn

Extending the protection a bit in 2v2.

Crimson Pact

  • COST: 2[R]R → 3[R]R

  • SPELL: Banish a minion and you lose life equal to its strength → Destroy a minion and you lose life equal to its strength

As good a spot as any to talk a little about this big shift in the meta; Removal and deck cycling efficiency have a pretty chilling effect on tactical, board-presence-based play. With shifts like this, it should be a bit easier to make progress by playing minions and making smart trades.

Cyclopean Giant

  • FOCUSED: 4 → 5


  • SPELL: Stun a minion until your next turn → Give a minion -1/-0 and Immobile

Dragon’s Teeth

  • NEW: Stacking


Draupnir Band

  • NEW: Stacking

Dream Weaver

  • COST: 3[Y]Y → 3[Y]

Eir Healing

  • SPELL: Restore 3 minion health or grant 3 player life. Draw a card → Restore 5 health to a minion and draw a card

Increasing the odds that you’ll actually care for some poor wounded minions while healing your way through the deck using what was always a very stall-oriented spell.

Extract Life

  • COST: X[R]R → X[R]RR

Forge Elemental (created by the Fires of Creation path)

  • DEMISE: Deal 1 damage to your opponent → Restore 3 durability to all of your artifacts

Forked Lightning

  • Deal 2 damage to enemy minions in 3 adjacent lanes → Deal 1 damage to the occupant of an enemy lane and 2 damage to adjacent lanes

Now has a damage profile that’s actually “forked”!

Giant’s Stairway

  • NAME: The Giant’s Stairway → Giant’s Stairway

Godsblud Transfusion

  • SPELL: Give a minion +1/+1 and Regen 3 → Give a minion +2/+2 and Regen 2

Goliath’s Web

  • NAME: The Goliath’s Web → Goliath’s Web

Hacker’s Intuition

  • COST: 2[G]G  → 2[G]

Hekate’s Wheel

  • ENCHANTMENT: Enchantments in the opposing three lanes are Suppressed → While occupied, enchantments in the opposing three lanes are Suppressed

Requiring occupancy reinforces the pattern that board control is more about contesting lanes and less about “fire and forget” effects shutting down parts of the battlefield.

Helm of Conscription


Ice Spike

  • SPELL: Deal 3 damage to a minion → Give a minion [Stunned] until your next turn and deal 1 damage to it

Ichor Feast

  • COST: 3[R]R → 3[R]RR

Infuse (power)

  • ACTIVE: Once per turn, give a minion +1/+1 until end of turn → Once per turn, give a friendly minion +1/+1 until end of turn

The Invisible City

  • SHARE: While occupied, draw an extra card each turn → While occupied, friendly players draw an extra card each turn

In 2v2, control over the center lane enchantment is usually a matter of who is playing into it or taking action at the moment, which unfortunately isn’t clear at the start of your turn, when the “Throne” cycle of enchantments are alternating controllers and handing out cards. This change makes an occupied The Invisible City, Odinthrone, Sacrificial Altar, Temple at Delphi, or Treasury of Petra high value in 2v2 regardless of where it’s sitting or who currently has control.

Ironbelly Wyvern

  • COST: 3[R] → 3[R]R

  • SIZE: 3/4 → 3/2

  • NEW: Rush

Leshy Greene

  • COST: 4[G]G → 3[G]G

The Long Winter

  • All non-occupying minions come into play Stunned until the end of their next turn → While occupied, all minions outside this and the opposite lane come into play Stunned until the end of their next turn

Given the degree to which it’s capable of slowing the game down, intent here is to increase counterplay and make The Long Winter’s position on the board more important and contested.



Mend (power)

  • REMOVED: ...and gain 1 life

See the Smite change for additional context, would be a little silly for these two powers to negate each other that directly.

Meso Libre

  • COST: 3[Y] → 3[Y]Y


  • SPELL: Destroy all minions → Give all minions [Blight 3]

Model of Duality



  • SIZE: 2/1 → 1/2

  • ABILITY: Agile → Deal 1 damage to your opponent when you cast a spell


  • SHARE: While occupied, draw an extra card each turn → While occupied, friendly players draw an extra card each turn

See The Invisible City change for context.

Ollama Ring

  • NEW: Stacking


Orbital Jamming Satellite


Ourania Muse

  • COST: 3[R]R → 3[R]

Panic Raider

  • COST: 3[R]RR → 3[R]R

Pit Fiend

  • ABILITY: Demise: Banish the bottom 4 cards of your opponent's boneyard → Awaken: Banish the top 4 cards of your opponent's boneyard

Quicksand Hourglass

  • NEW: Stacking

Radiant Vessel

  • ACTIVE: Consumes remaining O gems to get +1/+0 for each O until end of turn → your next turn

Raid the Tombs

  • COST: 2[G] → 2[G]G

Sacrificial Altar

  • SHARE: While occupied, draw an extra card each turn → While occupied, friendly players draw an extra card each turn

See The Invisible City change for context.

Sapo, the Devourer

  • AWAKEN: Devour an enemy minion in the opposing lane as well as your minions in adjacent lanes. Is created with 2 more strength and health for each minion destroyed in this way → Destroy an enemy minion in the opposing lane as well as friendly minions in adjacent lanes. Gets +2/+2 for each minion destroyed in this way

In the mind of a godlike amphibian, devour and destroy mean the same thing, but it’s probably better to be clear about things like this (and the way it works in 2v2). Additionally, making dat belly a buff instead of a base size increase means that it can be suppressed.

Samosek, the Living Sword

  • NEW: Stacking


  • ABILITY: After your opponent's minions deal combat damage to a player they take 1 damage → 2 damage

Sandscale Wurm

  • NEW: Overrun

Sea Lord’s Trident


Serpent Den

  • COST: 4[Y] → 3[Y]Y

  • REMOVED: (Temple Snake) Awaken: Gets a free move action

The value-over-time proposition is obviously the point of serpents, but the den self-solves its own potential lane clogging problems too well for interesting options like the Impel power to combo with it.

Shroud of the Pit


Singing Stone

  • NAME: The Singing Stone → Singing Stone

  • NEW: Stacking


  • ARTIFACT: All your enchantments give occupying minions +1/+1 in addition to their other effects → All your minions have +1/+1 while they are occupying enchantments

This doesn’t change the stone’s functionality much, but doing it this way simplifies it somewhat and gets rid of a lot of noisy/redundant text all over your enchantments.

Smite (power)

  • DAMAGE: 2 → 1

Not just a test of the “how much impact can a single number going down by one have?” system, but a necessary change to support a world where player damage erodes artifact durability.

Spear of Destiny

  • NEW: Stacking


Spellflux Cauldron

  • NEW: Stacking


The Stretcher

  • NEW: Stacking


Tailroot Wurm

  • COST: 4[B] → 4[B]B

Temple at Delphi

  • SHARE: While occupied, draw an extra card each turn → While occupied, friendly players draw an extra card each turn

See The Invisible City change for context.

Timberland Troll

  • COST: 4[B]B → 4[B]

Treasury of Petra

  • SHARE: While occupied, draw an extra card each turn → While occupied, friendly players draw an extra card each turn

See The Invisible City change for context.

Triassic Kraken

  • REGEN: 1 → 2

Vilja Windfury

  • COST: 7[G]G → 6[G]G

  • SIZE: 6/6 → 4/5

  • ABILITY: Armor 1 → Swift, Frenzy

Volcanic Risi

  • BLAST: 3 → 4

  • NEW: Awaken: Deal 4 damage to your opponent

Xerxian Saboteur

  • ABILITY: @: Destroy an artifact and disable this ability → Awaken: Deal 6 combat damage to opposing player's artifacts

Yana Virus

  • NAME: The Yana Virus → Yana Virus


  • New draining visuals for Life Tap

  • Card art updates for Alchemical Key, Lavish Proxy, Matryoshka, Fey Plagiarist, Desertification Engine, and Faceless Construct

  • 24 new wild card designs

Patch Notes v0.13.3

  • Samosek, the Living Sword

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

Finally getting the kinks out of the 2v2 trigger parsing.


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

  • Fixed a bug where the totals bar in the deck histogram wasn’t properly tracking removed cards

  • Fixed a bug causing the AI to act more wonkily than usual

  • Added code to punish AI for trolling with Mistwalker Gate

  • 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.


Patch Notes v0.13.1

2/22/2019 10:31:18 PM

Features & Bug Fixes

  • Fixed some crash bugs / connectivity issues

  • Added targeting lines to better communicate the target of spells, and you can toggle this feature on/off in game options

  • Einherjar Berserkr

  • Forked Lightning

    • SPELL: Deal 3 damage to the occupant of an enemy lane and 2 damage to adjacent lanes → Deal 2 damage to enemy minions in 3 adjacent lanes

  • Freki Sidecar
