Hey everyone! Mod Knight back with another top 5! This time I’ll be covering the topic of The Elder Scrolls: Legends. For those of you who haven’t heard of it, it’s a fast paced card game based on the Elder Scrolls universe! The game focuses around building a deck of cards containing creatures, actions, items, and powers with the goal of reducing your opponent’s HP to 0. If you haven’t played it, its a game I’d suggest as it’s a very fun little card game, and it’s free to play!
So then! For anyone who may be interested in jumping into the game, here’s some of my picks for some good cards to have in your deck if possible:
#5- Young Dragonborn
Not only does this card start out strong, but it has amazing growth potential! Every time you play a shout card, this card increases in both power and HP! Unfortunately, her growth requires a steady supply of shout cards; meaning that, in anything other than a shout focused deck, she wont be too powerful.
#4- Arrow Storm
When facing off against a deck that’s built for swarming you with a large number of enemy creatures, you’re likely to face a large horde of weaker monsters, usually with a power of 1-2. That’s where this card becomes invaluable; this card will allow you to clear away an entire lane’s worth of foes for only 3 magicka!
#3- Unrelenting Force
Shouts in the Elder Scrolls Legends are an interesting class of card! As you play more of them, they become more and more powerful. Each shout played, makes every incarnation of the same shout in your deck increase in level. And Unrelenting Force has a very strong progression, allowing you to instantly un-summon enemies; all the way up to completely clearing a lane!
#2- Tree Minder
While not an offensive card in the least, the Tree Minder in an extremely helpful card, especially early on in a match! When summoned, this card permanently increases your maximum magicka, the resource which allows you to play cards. Using this can earn you an early advantage by allowing you to break out strong cards quickly!
#1- OldGate Warden
When it comes to defense, look no further than cards with both the Guard and Regenerate traits, which allows them to recover from damage every turn. And it prevents foes from attacking anything else! When playing this card, I suggest to stock up on item cards and effects that can disable lethal enemies!
There are a lot more great cards in the game, with effects I haven’t even been able to touch on in this list! However, if you’d care to see for yourself, I’d advise checking out the game for free on Steam! As always, this is Mod Knight, and thanks for reading!
