  2. Card Merchant - Iris of Reality
  3. Tower of TCG - Prismatic Shield
  4. FABTCG - Phantasmaclasm
  5. Midian Games - Dream Weavers
  6. Visio Games - Blinding Beam
  7. Alex Hodges - Enigma Chimera
  8. Manuel Rozoy - Spears of Surreality
  9. Power Up - Phantasmify

Our first and presumably only new class this set is the Illusionist, and Prism promises to bring some amazing new strategies to the game: turning damage-reducing tokens into weapons and presenting incredibly strong attacks that vanish against a show of force! I foresee a great matchup against Dorinthea, Katsu, and obviously Kano; but Rhinar, Levia, and Bravo will have her number!

Wednesday, April 21:

  1. Tabletop Gaming UK - Gallantry Gold
  2. Fable Hobby - Glisten
  3. FaBulous - Halo of Illumination
  4. FAB Italia FB - Engulfing Light
  5. TowerNumberNine - Spill Blood
  6. Like Butter Media - Raydn, Duskbane
  7. Intrinsic Gaming - Dusk Path Pilgrimage
  8. Radio Reflex - Out Muscle
  9. Bricks Play - Valiant Dynamo

Warrior now has a 2nd Legendary Equipment. This makes Warrior officially the most expensive class to own all of. Notably, Warrior also has a number of alternate options for armor, and completely lacks a class helm. What the ideal configuration ends up being remains to be seen.

Tuesday, April 20:

  1. Flesh and Blood Malaysia FB - Bolting Blade
  2. FAB Five - Beacon of Victory
  3. Rocket City Gaming Lounge - Valiant Thrust
  4. Cobra Pearl - Bolt of Courage
  5. FAB Wellington FB - Belittle and Minnowism
  6. Southern Hobby Supply - Hatchet of Body
  7. FAB Foundry - Stubby Hammerers

Boltyn is quickly garnering attention in the community, for good and bad reasons. As inheritor of the powerful Warrior card suit, many see him as inevitably dominant; still others are eager for something new for a class that epitomizes repetition. So far the Light card pool seems to encourage a very different approach to the Warrior kit.

It's also looking like Soul effects (Charging and releasing) make for some very powerful attacks. The cost of Charging your Soul is notably expensive- that's a card out of your hand, after all- so we'll have to wait for real-world results before we reach a verdict.

  6. Classroom Cafe - Ghostly Visit
  7. Bronson's Blood - Rally the Rearguard

Day 2 of previews brought a lot of answers to yesterday's questions. Shadow and Light are Talents- in essence, a cardpool like Warrior or Wizard- that your Hero gives you access to. The Shadow talent appears in that same descriptive box on the bottom, so none of the existing Heroes can use Shadow or Light at this time!

We also got to see the first Hero of the Monarch set, a Shadow Brute (access to both card pools) named Levia. She's seriously committed to Blood Debt, so Rhinar's not at risk of being replaced! But this gives promise of backwards support in the Monarch card pool; already we've seen new Brute cards.

Monday, April 12

  1. FABDB - Tome of Torment
  2. Star City Games - Doomsday
  3. ChannelFireball - Eclipse
  4. TCGPlayer - Eclipse Existance
  5. FABTCG Asia FB - Celestial Cataclysm
  6. ICv2 - Tome of Divinity
  7. TCGPlayer - Ray of Hope

What an incredible day to kick off the spoiler season! We've seen two new mechanics associated with Shadow and Light. Shadow cards seem to be dealing in Blood Debt to the Banished Zone, while Light cards have added a Soul beneath your Hero card. How heavily will these alignments be tied to Souls and Blood Debts? And just who can utilize them?

We also saw Celestial Cataclysm, a card that seems to to be an "Enlightened Strike part 2". Beautiful artwork as always, well done LSS!

And did you notice the rarities? Eclipse and Doomsday are Legendaries! These are notably not equipment, and specializations too. That's 2 of 6 Legendaries... will we see a complete shattering of the norms the first 3 sets established for this rarity slot?
