Put some Junk in your jank with 0.2.4’s Junkions!

Everyone’s likely cleaning up all the post-holiday junk, but don’t throw this last bit in the trash! We’ve been teasing their arrival since the beginning of the Waste|Lands Public Beta, and they’ve finally arrived. Junkions in the #transformerstcg bring a myriad of surprising – and often, confusing and mystifying – abilities to the battlefield! And they await your download in the Waste|Lands 0.2.4 Public Beta! For starters, check out their peerless leader, Wreck-Gar, The Big Cheese! Now With More Cheese!

Wreck-Gar, The Big Cheese! Now With More Cheese!
Cheesy, to be sure – but you’ll want an extra helping.

Since most of the Junkions and some of the stratagems in Waste|Lands use the new station and Vehicle mechanics, we thought we’d put together an illustrated guide to help. This guide goes through the steps to play stations and Vehicles, in most scenarios of play.

So, what’s next in the Waste|Lands Public Beta? Not much! Already, 153 of the 160 cards in Waste|Lands have been revealed. One final reveal phase remains – then the march to release. If you’re looking at all the cards in Waste|Lands and would like to send us your feedback, use the form! The next couple of weeks will be spent on refinements towards the final 0.2.5 reveal. Stay tuned!

Week 3 Winners! Don’t Lose your Light!

The crew of the Lost Light is delivering our final bag of presents to lucky winners in the final week of our giveaway! But how can they call themselves the Lost Light crew… when there are so many holiday lights?

Congratulations to our Week 3 Winners in our Transformers TCG Holiday Giveaway! Freshly loaded into the Lost Light’s cargo bay, 3 printed cards etched with the holiday spirit of the Aspect of Laughter are headed to their mailboxes.

But if you didn’t win free holiday cards this year, fear not! You can print off your own by visiting our Downloads page! But be quick – it’s going away with the New Year.

In fact, the end of the holidays only means we’re going to give away even more cards that look just like the ones printed by Hasbro… and there might even be complete sets of World|Strike and other allied crossplay sets up for grabs!

Guest article: Ozzy presents “Soundwave Superior”

Orange Soundwave arrives to strike terror in the minds of #transformerstcg players! The orange “tape deck” space is typically more associated with decks including Blaster, Communications. In Encounter 5, this Soundwave, Communications deck came to disprove this assumption – and placed second!

We in Team Bayformers are pleased to bring you this decklist breakdown by its creator and pilot in Encounter 5, Ozzy. Enjoy!

Guest Pool: E5 “Soundwave Superior” deck

This article was authored by guest writer Ozzy, the creator and pilot for this deck in World|Strike Tournament Season One’s Encounter 5.

Soundwave is probably my favorite character in the Transformers, and honestly, he’s probably on most people’s Top Five lists. When we finally got Soundwave in Wave 3, we got two of them to choose from. Sad thing is, they didn’t make much of an impact on the game.

About a year ago, I decided to switch from my regular Metroplex deck and dedicate time to making a Soundwave deck that would be tournament-competitive. I have had quite a few top 8 tournament finishes with variations of this deck, but what I present here is the deck I took to 2nd place in the recently completed Team Bayformers Encounter 5 tournament.

KingNaga wins Encounter 5!

With the end of Encounter 5 comes the crowning of a new champion: KingNaga and his unassailable Fortress Maximus deck combined with Flintlock! Kudos go also to our second-place player Ozzy, whose Soundwave deck showed many surprises. Encounter 5 has been an unforgettable event, with twists and turns galore. We had so much fun supporting Turbo Revving Old Punks and their inaugural set Phase One – it’s safe to say that we’ll be supporting them in bigger ways very soon.
