Fanmade Mini-expansion: Scions of Deladriss

Scions of Deladriss

Hello, everyone. This is a fanmade mini-expansion, similar in size as expansions such as Ancient Bonds. Each faction will be receiving 2 common cards, 2 rare cards, 1 epic card, and 1 legendary card. For now, I’ll only be posting the Lyonar cards, and will be updating cards as they’re ready.

New Feature: Eidolons

Each faction will receive 1 Eidolon. Eidolons are legendary minions with a new keyword that is unique to their faction. See below the Eidolons of each faction for information on these new keywords.

Stalwart works on every attack in a round I assume?

Seems pretty powerful, impossible to ping then :slight_smile:

It does. I’m going to nerf it one way or another.

It would devastate every Songhai player, they love their pings :smiley:

You had me at “devastate” and “Songhai” :wink:

A good way is to buff the numbers and causing it to work like Arclyte Regalia, thus at the same time simplifying the wording on Arclyte Regalia should it be implemented! Win-win!

2 Likes

That could work, but then it becomes too similar to Forcefield. Thanks for the idea, though.

4 Likes

A worse variant of Forcefield even.

I’ve been thinking about Stalwart and I have a good idea: What if you make it have something to do with the “loyalty” part of the word itself? Something like a martyr of sorts, a new kind of Provoke if you may.

2 Likes

That actually was the original idea, as in something similar to Provoke, but with even higher priority. Unfortunately, it was scrapped because it wasn’t very impactful. If we can think of a way to make it stronger I’m happy to return to it.

Updated Songhai cards. :sirpenti:

This thing is trash. If it cost 1, I think it would be playable (in a spell-heavy deck).

Yes!

Isn’t this kind of overpowered (especially with Backstab) and “uninteractive” because the board doesn’t matter anymore?

3 Likes

Thanks for the comment! And yes, the legendary is pretty strong, but that’s just how Backstab is, unfortunately. We have to cheat our way in with MDS/Jux and so on. If you have ideas to improve it I’m happy to hear it, though. :sirpenti:

I wouldn’t call a 5/5 with K/E with rush and fits comfortably on a flamewreath/scrollbandit deck “trash”.

How does it compete with Tusk Boar?

Vetruvian cards are up.

3 Likes

I gotta say, out of all the factions out right now Vetruvian seems the most well-structured one. Immortal isn’t OP because it only procs once, Corpse Combustion decks are viable now, and Dying Vet outside of Skywing variants are an off-meta decks I have been fond of.

Having an even borderline good DW Vet shell would be super awesome, very much seconded :slight_smile:

2 Likes

MrMana’s Unseven DW Vet is pretty decent:


Edit: also, I don’t know if it counts, but AlphaCentury’s Pantheriquarian deck is a lot of fun and runs a similarly sized DW package. It’s what I’ve been using to ladder with Vet this season.

Thanks! :sirpenti:
