Games Workshop Give The Lowdown On Deck-Building In Shadespire

October 17, 2017 by brennon

The folks at Games Workshop have gone in-depth in their exploration of Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire with a new video (which you can see above) looking at the Deck-Building options available to you in this game from the world of Age Of Sigmar.

Shadespire (Main)

The video goes into depth explaining how you use the Objective Cards in order to focus your strategy towards a number of key areas with quick and easy points scoring…

…and maybe something a bit grander as well as your end goal to finish the enemy off when the time is right.

It’s going to be interesting seeing which of the focused Objectives people go for in this game as they start to delve into the intricacies of the system over future games. I’m sure people will find a play style that they enjoy and stick with it, and a meta will no doubt develop as well if this gets into the competitive scene in enough numbers.

Power Deck

You also have a second deck which drives a lot of your gameplay and that is the Power Deck.

Cards #1

As they have mentioned, the Power Deck with its upgrades and more allow you to not only beef up your tough soldiers but also provide you with ways to play around the strengths of your opponents too.

Cards #2

When it comes down to it the deck building options are going to be very much tailored towards your favoured playstyle. I like the idea of lots of sneaky tricks being bought into play, with hopefully even more in the future as we potentially see Skaven being bought into the fold for this game.

Make sure to watch the video above and let us know what you think of the game now we’ve learned more about it.

We also have a Let’s Play of the Core Box coming out later this week too which will give you a look at how the game plays! You can also check out our Unboxing videos for Ironskull’s Boyz

…and the Sepulchral Guard as well.

Make sure to let us know which one of these Warbands you’re going to be playing as.
