News and lists

Standard Deck guides

Standard is the serious, competitive, and most popular format of the game. If a card is too strong in Standard, it is evaluated, and it “rotates” into Expanded.

Expanded Deck guides

Expanded is a more versatile form of Standard. This format contains all cards from Standard along with some pretty broken cards.

Theme Deck guides

Theme Decks are pre-built decks that you can obtain from the in-game Shop for just 500 Tokens. This is the easiest format to get into because no matter how long veterans have been playing, you can acquire the same decks they use for a pretty cheap price.
