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?
Set: Tempest of the Gods
As a lover of control decks in other card games, Tempest of the Gods is a refreshing change from the aggressive meta of the previous expansion, Rise of Bahamut. With heavy endgame decks like Ramp Dragoncraft and Aegis Havencraft, I thought I would try my hand at a control deck with my favorite class, Swordcraft. The two new legendaries, Gawain of the Round Table and Roland the Incorruptible, serve as great additions to the Control Swordcraft archetype.

This is Dimensional Explosion! The finest deck that commands absolute respect from every player! This deck is the perfect shell for the most powerful tool in the Runecraft arsenal, Dimensional Shift, to defeat your opponents in a single turn with a glorious giant explosion! Aggressive decks fancies themselves as superior but Dimensional Explosion will destroy them with the strongest of spells!
Shadowverse recently distributed a free copy of Gabriel and Prince of Darkness (RIP Satan) to all players. This means the ladder is full of midrange Swordcraft beatdown decks and cancer Havencraft control decks. Here at YouthfulLaughter, I like to go against the grain as a strong independent loli vampire sadist who don’t need no meta decks and play decks that best handle these meta decks. Of course, by loli vampire sadism, I’m referring to control Bloodcraft (loli optional for 800 rupees or if you’re crazy like me 700 if you buy every leader at once).
Greetings Shadowcrafters! Welcome to an episode of Shadowderp where we look at crazy deck ideas just for the fun of it! Today we’ll be looking at what I call “Ethereal Tyrant.” This is a sweet Shadowcraft deck that aims to finish off the opponent with a giant undead dragon.
The most unique mechanic of Shadowverse is undoubtedly its evolve mechanic. Using your evolution points effectively is key to winning. To evolve is to commit, as evolution points are extremely finite. This guide explains different ways to use your evolution points and introduces a beginner-friendly budget deck any new player can make.
