Now that I have had plenty of chance to draft against new opponents in the Epic Digital core only alpha, my dark draft strategy has shifted. The gist of the shift involves a much higher evaluation of 0-cost cards and health gain (health gain specific to core only). Dark Knight is also near the absolute top of my picks, and Amnesia has been passed up a few times in favor of other cards. (So far I’ve decked out for a win once and lost to my opponent decking out once.)
Dark Draft Saturday (4/8/17)
Instead of writing up a new article (yet), I’ve decided to stream 8 hours of drafting on Saturday. 8am-12pm CST (1pm-5pm UTC) and 4pm-8pm CST (9pm-1am UTC).
During these times I will be live at twitch.tv/tomsepicgaming. I will be accepting Dark Draft challenges from viewers. In addition, I encourage new players to challenge me and continue watching/listening as we play (stream snipe) as I explain my thought process behind my picks and plays. I’ll also answer questions mid/post game and provide any other constructive feedback that comes to mind. While I’ll be playing to win, my goal will be to help grow everyone’s understanding of the game, or at least share my understanding of the game.
