Two Lwosers – a casual format for underdogs!

Everyone loves an underdog. A down-on-their-luck character with struggles we can relate to – and can root for in a fight. With this in mind, why roll into the next tournament with the most busted meta deck possible? Let’s celebrate some of the unloved cards in the #transformerstcg – and let’s not just boost one card, but two!

Introducing Two Lwosers – the casual format for neglected stratagems! Players roll into a Two Lwosers (pronounced “losers”) event with not just one playable deck, but two! Each deck is centered around a stratagem that is legal in the format. These stratagems (and their Affects targets) cannot be sideboarded out in the course of a match. In fact, players do not have a 10-card sideboard in this format – they start with 0! Instead, if a player wants to switch up their strategy, they can swap out their entire initial deck for their secondary one!

However, sideboards aren’t entirely eliminated. If an intrepid player chooses some particularly attention-starved stratagems from the legal list for their decks, the choice can allow them a greater number of cards in their sideboard. For example, if a player brings a Pop-Up Attack deck (which grants +3 sideboard cards) and also a Cantankerous Attitude deck (which grants +2 sideboard cards), they can have a 5 card sideboard in total.

Ashtray fires up Waste|Lands 0.2.4.1!

As we prepare our 0.2.4.1 minor release for the Waste|Lands Public Beta, we’re showing off the final art for the Junkion Ashtray! He was lovingly drawn by Dan Khanna with colors by Myla Xan. Inspired by the original G1 Junkion engineer, we also took some notes from the GI Joe Doom Cycle. His alt mode is a blend of the classical Junkion bike combined with features from the Doom Cycle.

The Mission Briefing is over. The future is at Hand!

Announcing the next 1C Open Card candidate! We’ve long wanted to ban Mission Briefing due to its extreme draw power. This wish combined with the fact that it made many draw cards obsolete. Any deck with Battlemasters, Weaponizers, Quintesson Specialists, and the like had an immediate advantage in card draw with Mission Briefing in their decks – and the very existence of the card limited design space greatly. However, the white/green nature of the card was desirable to certain deck comps, so we didn’t want to simply ban Mission Briefing without some sort of replacement. And Hand of Adaptus is that card.

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!
