Hello dear Duelyst community,
After several months of work I very happy to be here and give you a new Disenchanting guide for v.1.96.
First I want to mention who worked on that guide beside me: PonchoMango and Iceyfire95 :-) Thanks to these guys the guide got finished by now and it also enfolds way more ideas and things I envisioned when I asked for their help! Without them the guide would be way worse. Also many thanks to /u/F8_ for creating the guide’s template, upon which we built and extended!
So, now let’s talk about the guide’s contents. There is more to it than only a pure what to disenchant and what not guide.
First and foremost of course it gives advice on what Legendaries and Epics are bad or good and should be disenchanted, kept or crafted. We put the cards in 5 tiers (Staples, Keep, Archetype, Tech, Disenchant) and every card got a rating (0-5 out of 5). Our reasoning is that some cards are not really good but useable in some way and maybe someone who is more conservative (and playing that faction) wouldn’t want to disenchant these.

Hey everyone! Have you ever wondered why the boss AIs are complete bots? Have you ever seen a boss go full potato on you, and question why in the name of Serpenti the boss should pose any sort of challenge to your hopefully superior human intellect? Well now, you too can be a potato!
Introducing Shinkage Zendo, here to finally level the playing field by making your general just as stupid as the boss’s general. The difference between you and the boss, however, is that Shinkage Zendo has idiot-proofed himself, making himself unable to move so as to resist the temptation of smacking anything he sees. This also makes it easier for him to play around his cousin: Grandmaster Zendo.
More idiot-proofing is done by making it literally impossible to damage him until all his minions are destroyed. It’s almost like a really strong force field that can potentially last forever, so that’s fun. :P
But worry not. Zendo is still a bot at the end of the day. He could make you smack a Hamon Bladeseeker,
Hey folks got another end of the month top 50 list here for you. Before we get into it I wanted to give a big shout-out to the people who helped find and populate the decklists section this month since I didn’t really have time. I know that Niklaren and Boronian generally grab them but to anyone who I’m unaware of thanks a lot!

RHacker93 here with the latest Top 50 list you’re going to find. Been a bit of a wild month but I was actually able to find the time to grab a bunch of lists from December’s Top 50 players! Given the change of space I’m trying out a bit of a different layout this month. As I’m still learning Duelspot’s article formatting I’m just going to link albums for the Top 50 Graphs and Decklists for now.
Also as a reminder to readers this is actually the decklists for December not for January as I’m just starting to compile the January lists right now!
Alright well without any more waiting here’s the data graphs and decklists for the December 2018 Top 50!
Wanted to wish you all a merry Christmas and happy holidays. I know it’s quite late in the month but I wanted to put out the top 50 list from November. Unlike the other months, I wasn’t able to catch this at the very last minute, I didn’t account for daylight savings pushing the reset back an hour, and so this image was taken around 30 minutes before the end of the season. I also did not have the time this month to reach out and grab the lists from the top 50 players though I will be looking to do that in the future.
I also have a bit of exciting personal news to share. As of now, I will be joining the Counterplay Games QA team. I will be working on Godfall and I’m very excited to start working on the project!
I am also planning on continuing my work as a member of the Duelyst community and having this job will help give me the stability to reliably put out the more detailed top 50 lists as well as continue to run Duelyst tournaments. I would also like to avoid confusion and clarify that these events/articles would still be community-driven and would not be official even though I will be working with Counterplay now.
Hello Duelyrs, we’re now approaching the end of the year and it’s been a long while without any additions to the game, but there are still some small changes to the meta happening over time. New decks are seeing play and there’s changes in the estimation of others. Despite that, ladder has developed pretty predictably and these Power Rankings too. I’m hoping Team Wars could change that slightly, but with that ongoing, Christmas happening and the meta stagnation I don’t feel I’ll have the time and energy to do this next month. So if anyone is interested in leading this up next month then let me know :)
Looking back to last month I heard some feedback that some decks or lists weren’t representative enough of the meta, for example Wanderer Reva has become very rare to run into, while Xor’Xull is very common but doesn’t show on the rankings. So I thought it was worth clarifying that the lists here are more representative of an abstract power level that’s unique to each voter. If a deck rates higher than you’re seeing on ladder it probably means that at least some of us think it’s underplayed and the reverse for popular but weak decks that don’t make the cut.
What now seems like a long time ago I opened the Twitch front page and something about the autoplaying video caught my attention. Maybe none of the streamers I was following were on, maybe I just have a huge soft spot for tactics and card games, or maybe the pixel art grabbed me. Whatever it was that day I found myself thinking I need to try this game that I was seeing. But which faction should I play? The white armor dudes to me looked like the most ‘starter’ of the factions. Lucky for me Tempo Argeon happened to be one of the better decks at the time. But even now I think Lyonar is a great faction to start out on; teaching and rewarding good fundamentals with a very minion-based faction that has tools for all stages of the game. Position your units well and they will pay you back in kind.
Lyonar is the faction that most cares about formations: the specific positioning of their minions in relation to the general. The deck I played this month to S rank is an example of this; making use of the Zeal keyword and Marching Orders more specifically to empower my minions.
