Last sunday we watched top8 bracket with all the gold group finalists. This time it was Stronghold and Necro who dominated qualifiers as wee could see a lot of Acamas and Kat games. Again both nations – French and Polish show many strong players are in their lineups and finally it was Pawel999k who won versus famous and lovely caster cucu99. As the games were played before new expansion we could see almost every playerd who was starting 2nd, wining his games and im really into what will Griffin Bane show us all!

So as I’m sure you guys are wondering after the mysterious edit of Enclase’s post from a few days ago, what will the future hold for this site. So in the interest of full transparency here is what is going on.
I will be taking over the day to day operations of the site. Providing content, making sure that we keep up to date on the news and bringing you interviews from the community. I will be trying to provide at least one article every other day, with breaking news as it becomes available.
The thing that I know is on every ones mind is the deck builder and card database. I have been in contact with Bokkengro and he is willing to update it for us. The update will however not be ready for the new patch as it was previously and will more than likely happen after the patch goes live. I will keep you guys up to date on when that is going to happen. So please be patient with us as we work through the transition.
If you have any questions or comments please leave them here and if you would like to contribute to the site please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for making this a great site
What is stackable? Well this is a new mechanic that is being brought with the new Griffin Bane expansion that is set to release sometime in the next week. We got a peek into this mechanic today on the Griffin Bane Arena stream with the community managers and it looks like it is going to add a whole new level of strategy to the game.
In an interview with Developer SimonV we got an explanation of what this new mechanic will bring.
“Stackable is a new ability that lets you deploy, relocate or move a creature with Stackable onto another creature with the same name. Let’s say Serpentfly has Stackable, you deploy the first one normally, then you deploy the second one on top of the first one, the size of the Serpentfly will go up by 1 and the 2nd Serpentfly card will go to your graveyard. Since your stack of Serpentfly is 2, it’s ATK is 2 and its HP is 4.”
If you want to read more about the upcoming expansion you can find the full interview over at the DoC Forums.
Last night community could watch top8 bracket with all the gold group finalists. As last time we could watch plenty of Hakeem games, but this time people prepared, or at least tried to pick something that in thier mind can counter this popular top tier deck. So, we could not only experiece as well popular Acamas, but also we saw inferno Delebs, Ignatius and Garants, who tried to top Juna Quali. This time finals were super exciting and end up after all 5 games in a series, so i would strongly recommend you watch the replays though Ubi DoC channel and its VODs. This time it was Redpepper6 who after disapointing performence in round 1/4 managed to forget about stress and played super solid versus famous MnM_vs_Smarties causing him to stay at second place. One more super crucial note, at all grand final games – the player who started 2nd won the match. Everytime.

When Heart of Nightmares arrived, I was convinced that the “random” Inferno rushes that had previously only been fringe strategies could claim a share of the competitive spotlight – mainly due to Lava Spawn and Thrall of Hatred.
Lava Spawn: Having 8 one-drops (or 12 if you want to run Goldpiles) ensures that going first, you can have a turn 1 play (mulligan aggressively for it). It very importantly dodges Earthquake and survives a Firebolt as well! [Of course, going 2nd and having 2 one-drops is an opening some decks just can't recover from.]
Thrall of Hatred: Many aggressive decks find it hard to deal the last few points of damage against an opponent that manages to stabilize – this helps push the last few points of damage through, especially in combination with Deleb’s ability or Delve into Madness. A lot of “Mexican standoffs” can end in a puzzle-like finish with you playing a Thrall and suiciding your Demons onto your opponent’s retaliation.
Deleb: Starting with 2 Might is vital in order to be able to play your turn 1 Lava Spawns. Xorm may have a more aggressive ability, but Deleb gets access to Lightning Strike, and her ability synergizes with Thrall of Hatred as well as allowing you to play through Pillages quite well.
