Hello, hello. Welcome to my beginner’s guide to Shadowverse where I’ll be introducing this game while looking at it from a new player’s perspective. In this episode, we’ll be going over the different classes in Shadowverse from both aesthetic and gameplay perspectives. Without further ado, let’s get started.
Shadowverse has a selection of classes to choose from, each with its own distinct playstyle. The seven classes are Forestcraft, Swordcraft, Runecraft, Dragoncraft, Shadowcraft, Bloodcraft, and Havencraft.
Whenever this follower attacks the enemy leader, deal damage to that leader until their defense drops to 0.
Hello, hello. Welcome to Shadowderp where we try to beat the Shadowverse Meta with the jankiest decks we can make. Today, I will be trying a Forestcraft deck that I’m calling “Derpwood Anomaly” based on the namesake card, Deepwood Anomaly. Before we start, I’d like to take a reminder for you to like, comment, or subscribe, yadda yadda. Anyways, let’s get started. Deepwood Anomaly is an 8 cost 8/8 that basically says if this card attacks the enemy leader, that leader dies. A powerful win condition, Deepwood Anomaly has never seen play in competitive tiered decks due to its high cost and lack of either protection or immediate game impact. That is, until now.
Shadowverse has been out for a year now and new players are starting to play even now as Cypress graces with us with perfect expansions with absolutely zero broken Spawns. I mean cards (thank god for nerfs). With new players joining the game, I wanted to see the game from a beginner’s perspective. Are new players just too far behind in the card acquisition race or do new players have a chance on the ladder?
A better Sakamoto Desu Ga?
Anything to make any sense
Heartfelt slice-of-life like Handa-kun‘s pre-sequel, Barakamon
I was recommended Handa-kun as another comedy similar to Sakamoto Desu Ga?but done better. Both follow the trope of a singular well-liked main character within a high school setting. However, Handa-kun differs itself from Sakamoto Desu Ga? in that the main character, Handa, is not actually that competent. All of his positive achievements are due to misunderstandings by his peers. As these misunderstandings spiral out of control, other people come to revere Handa while Handa himself becomes more and more convinced other hate him.
The level of misunderstanding becomes cult-like at a certain point and it was at this point I got a little uncomfortable with the series. However, Handa-kun was able to bring it around and actually develop character relationships, albeit not significantly, giving the sentence that is this 12 episode series a nice punctuation. The subtle nods to Handa’s original series, Barakamon, where we see him as an adult is fun since Barakamon is one of my favorite series to date.
The two emotions of this show: delight and utter disgust
Overall: 7/10 (Never boring but overbearing at times)
When Shadowverse first started, I posted a Introduction and Beginner Tips guide for new players unfamiliar with the game. Now that a couple more sets have released and the game has gotten more popular, I wanted to add upon my introductory guide for new to intermediate players who want to play the game and expand their collection. The first guide’s tips still holds true so check that out if you have not already. In short summary, reopen your first free packs until you get Legendary cards and play the story mode. What about after that?
