Episode 24: What Happened in Vegas with Justin Kirkman

October 15, 2019

Archons of the Crucible,

A dark cloud rose in the west, and its specter has hung over the KeyForge community for some days. There is only one knight who can dispell this dark force, a chosen one... a Key Man. Could it be that this true hero is the one, who himself is most afflicted by this darkness? Welcome, this knight, Sir Kirkman the Keyman (Justin Kirkman) into the castle for the first time. Therein he will join forces with our sanctified co-hosts to reflect on this trying time so that we might move forward together into a brighter tomorrow. Today, Archons, we call on you to be the force that moves this land towards good and not evil. To open doors, not close them. And to do that, you'll need keys, so start forging them!

Episode 22: Let Down for What? Big Organized Play News

September 30, 2019

Archons of the Crucible,

The big announcement has come and gone. Now left awestruck in the aftermath, there is nothing to do but rebuild our castle brick by glorious brick. In this episode, the knights discuss a slew of big announcements regarding organized play and an intriguing, innovative new type of card design we'll experience in Worlds Collide. We grapple with the fallout from expectations both exceeded and dashed in different corners of the KeyForge universe. Can the knights bring together two feuding factions? Find out in this episode. Together we must move forward in this strange and new KeyForge landscape together. The future is all that matters now... well that and forging those keys!

Episode 21: Reading Opponents, Mind Games, and Fair Play

September 23, 2019

 

Archons of the Crucible,

What is that you are holding in your hand? Is this the creature you wish to destroy? In this episode, the knights ponder the way playing KeyForge in the flesh can influence the way we deduce and influence our opponent to gain an advantage in the game. Are these tactics fair game? On that Sir Jake and Sir Dan do not necessarily agree. Intrigued? Well, what are you waiting for? Press play already to hear this meaty discussion and level up as a forger of keys and as an ambassador for this great game.

Episode 18: Archetypes

Episode 18: Archetypes

September 2, 2019

Archons of the Crucible,

Welcome back to the Sanctumonius Castle, Alex Slotnick. In this episode, THREE knights discuss deck archetypes in KeyForge. These archetypes include aggressive strategies more commonly known as racing, control strategies, combo strategies, and midrange or hybrid strategies. Allow our knights to guide you through each why this matters in a unique deck game like KeyForge. Each deck is a vessel unto itself and it guards the secrets within mightily. We do not hold all the answers to decks and archetypes, but today we forge one key to unlocking this puzzle. We invite you to join us on this quest as we continue to work towards a better and more nuanced understanding of the game! But wait, there's more. A long lost segment returns. Stay tuned to the end for a very spicy OSAM on power creep in KeyForge.

Episode 15: Worlds Collide (Reaction to New Mechanics and Card Spoilers)

Episode 15: Worlds Collide (Reaction to New Mechanics and Card Spoilers)

August 5, 2019

Archons of the crucible,

On this week’s cast our two knights discuss the amazing turn out of Sanctumonius players at GenCon and the great woe they felt in not being alongside their fellow brethren and sisteren. Speaking of woe, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! The most honorable house in the entire game has been removed from the next set -- due to our grievous injuries dished out to the meta of the game. Also mars was removed. Our knights also cover some of the early news regarding the new set World’s Collide and talk about a few new keyword abilities and the two new houses that are rotating in. Finally, at the end of the cast our knights discuss some of the cards spoiled in the initial FFG release and give their thoughts and impressions on them. Archons remember, what is dead can not be killed, spirit knights ride!
