Drafting Empire of Glass: Archetypes

“Rats Ablaze” or “Rally Rats” is how I affectionately refer to my favorite Eternal draft archetype of all time. Was it a premiere archetype in that format? Probably not. Was it a good deck? Debatable. Was it insanely fun? Yes. Yes it was and I forced it every single time I could: my relationship withContinue reading “Drafting Empire of Glass: Archetypes”

Drafting Empire of Glass: Eternal Draft Packs

Drafting and playing Eternal well is incredibly difficult – that’s why I enjoy it. Eternal provides my brain with both entertainment and an outlet for critical thinking. Seven weeks have passed since my daughter was born, so critical thinking is neither desirable nor possible for me right now. I’m starting to accept that I mightContinue reading “Drafting Empire of Glass: Eternal Draft Packs”

47 Cards to Go: Drafting Legendaries in Empire of Glass

Fine. You win. You’ll get your article about Legendaries, but only after I make these jokes at your expense. Youth basketball coaches worldwide have my sympathy. I’m over here trying to help people like “ok, kids, let’s talk about fundamentals. Time to practice free throws.” The Farming Eternal Discord : “HOW DO WE MAKE HOOKContinue reading “47 Cards to Go: Drafting Legendaries in Empire of Glass”

Drafting Empire of Glass: Evaluating rares

New limited formats are like the Wild West and @TempestDragonKing is mighty quick on the draw, providing this and more feedback on my initial Empire of Glass article within an hour of publication. As much as I’d love to fill this article with Wild West references and Doc Holliday gifs (Trivia: Doc Holliday was anContinue reading “Drafting Empire of Glass: Evaluating rares”

Drafting Empire of Glass: Zero Games Played

Fresh outta grad school, I could’ve written an extraordinary 30-page paper about improving speech & language therapy outcomes for individuals with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder)*. Google Scholar and I were best friends, transition sentences flowed effortlessly while I typed, and I had a campus full of academic and professional resources at my disposal. *Source: Schaab,Continue reading “Drafting Empire of Glass: Zero Games Played”

Learning From Losses

Whether you’re the educator or the student, the process of teaching and learning is unique for every individual. Your approach to education should vary based on who you’re teaching. While my writing is always intended for newer players, I’m aware that players of all skill levels see my work so I try to keep thatContinue reading “Learning From Losses”

Be Boring – Audio Version

The following episode of Farming Eternal is an audio version of “Be Boring,” one of my first articles about the drafting process. While the set-specific information in the article primarily focuses on set 9, Argent Depths, the audio version contains some of my general thoughts on limited and opinions on set 1 that I tryContinue reading “Be Boring – Audio Version”

It’s Time to Draft the Hard Way in Eternal

https://eternalwarcry.com/articles/d/jNEbDL9PNzI/it-s-time-to-draft-the-hard-way-in-eternal My first Eternal article. I didn’t feel like being able to draft the hard way was a big advantage in Echoes of Eternity draft, but that changed with Argent Depths. The draft packs have been updated since the article was written, so some of the specifics are no longer relevant (shadow 2-drops, for example),Continue reading “It’s Time to Draft the Hard Way in Eternal”

Drafting Good Decks with “Bad” Cards: Feln Control

https://eternalwarcry.com/articles/d/chq9EV4wLyU/drafting-good-decks-with-bad-cards-feln-control This article is more format-specific than the other two. Sadly, this deck is harder to draft now because Wisdom of Elders and the Shadow removal in the draft packs are no longer weighted as heavily. Feln Control is on the advanced end of deckbuilding. Not an archetype for novice players.
