I told you I'd be alive, and I am

It's taken longer than expected, as my college schedule has not been kind, but a recent development has finally enabled me to do internet things again: I actually have bandwidth. Writing is difficult time-wise, but for the first time I'm able to stream without difficulty.

An Announcement to Make

It's been a long time, and I regret that. Blah blah blah excuses excuses. I've made that post a couple times before already.

I made this pitch a few months ago to my old team at Warriors of the Blue Phoenix (of which I am still technically a part, and though you may not hear a lot from me, I do still play on occasion) and they were really supportive of it. Basically, the ultimate reason why I never stuck with a consistent schedule for this column is because of Shadow Era itself. Not that I have a problem with the game, there are some things I might have done differently but I'd say overall the current team is doing a fine job. The problem is that they aren't doing it fast enough.

USED: MistahBoweh vs SamuelJ

Last time, I talked about the latest competitive series to hit Shadow Era, USED. Now, I'm proud to report the results of the first ever USED match with myself against SamuelJ.

To start off, the decks:
I played Haste Zhanna. If you don't know what that is, it's Zhanna, but instead of big fat fatties, you use dudes like Fleet-Footed messenger that can take advantage of Aldon and The King's Pride, sort of like how Rothem works in Shattered Fates. The reason why I chose the deck is threefold: One, I never played it in public before, so it's not likely I'll be predicted. Two, this is a sideboard event, and Zhanna has a crazy amount of hate she can pack. Three, it's a play style I'm comfortable with. As mentioned before, I play a lot of Rothem on the test server, and Haste Zhanna is the Dark Prophecies equivalent of that deck.

Ultimate Shadow Era Duels

Today, I'd like to give a shoutout to a new member of the Shadow Era forums named BlackAngel, who's trying to put together a UFC-style league system with an acronym so unfortunate it's like Kyle came up with it himself.

Rothem Ragemaker

No, this isn't another combo deck, though the outcome is similar (Rothem wins). The deck itself isn't technically finished, but I've taken a little time to explain my choices anyways. Regardless, enjoy a gameplay video taken on the new 2.8.0 test server.
