Customer Reviews

Awesome game, easy to customize deck

It's actually really easy to get the cards you want without paying to win. Save your crystals and do AI battles for the first ten levels, then buy packs. Sell all the cards except the ones you'll use, and buy the cards you need.

There are two pretty strong heros that seem overpowered, but some cards can counter them entirely so the pvp is pretty balanced in most respects.
Keep up with the website and forums for info on the current meta and free crystals sometimes.

Seriously entertaining

Only reason it isn't a 5 star is because I've just started playing almost a week now but I gotta say for only putting in a little effort so far it's pretty legit. Takes a second to understand the cards but it's easy to catch on. Plenty of cards and strategies to choose from, I don't recommend online play until you've earned more cards.

Very entertaining

I'm a fan of all sorts of TCGs, including Yugioh, MTG, and Pokemon. This one has its own unique play style that does remind me of Magic, but it's distinct enough that it feels like a very different game. There are plenty of card combinations and strategies to choose from and it only keeps evolving. I definitely recommend this game to anyone who is a fan of TCGs.
