Sanctumonius: A KeyForge Podcast
Episode 32: Brad Andres

Episode 32: Brad Andres

December 24, 2019
Archons of the Crucible,

We have a very special episode for you to enjoy over the holiday season. It is short (due to a technical error or fifteen), but dense with high-quality insight from a special guest. The knights are thrilled to welcome Sir Brad into the castle for the first, but hopefully not last time. We talk about, well, developing KeyForge, the goal for balance in the game, and get to peek behind the curtain of how this game is made. I hope you'll weather with us through this storm to reap the rewards and forge those keys. Talk to you nerds in 2020!

Archons of the Crucible,

Sir Jake here, I'm not exactly sure what this episode covers because I didn't record it. Ha! But a little birdy tells me that this episode explores a meta-analysis of World's Collide based on results from Primes and Pax Unplugged. Sir Dan and Sir Alex also cover House Logos. Now, time to listen to this thing. Here's to hoping for no copyright infringement! So cross your fingers and forge those keys!

Archons of the Crucible,

Another Jakeless Sanctumonius finds Sir Dan calling upon Sir Alex to come on and discuss the cards that are showing up early and successful amongst World’s Collide cards. The knights are able to discuss the overall list and hit Star Alliance and Saurians before time eludes them and they call it a day. Listen in and find out what is showing up and doing well early on in the World’s Collide meta and pray that Sir Jake is found in the woods…….

Episode 29: Jake’s Last Minute Sealed Prime Prep and the Event Report

Episode 29: Jake’s Last Minute Sealed Prime Prep and the Event Report

December 4, 2019
Archons of the Crucible,

In this week's episode, the knights change course at the last moment to help Sir Jake prepare for an imminent competition, with tips on how to evaluate decks when choosing one out of three in the single deck sealed format. This competition, a KeyForge prime tournament, does indeed come to fruition and with Sir Jake in attendance. Thanks to the marvel of modern technology (thanks to our friends in house Logos to be sure), we manage to bring you a report of the event within this very episode. Also, we suffer not one, but two major technical difficulties (to be sure, thanks to our "friends" in house Logos). But we at castle Sanctumonius are known for nothing if not for our stubborn determination to continue on. And continue on we do, right on down to FORGING THOSE KEYS... just mind the explosions.

Episode 28: Commentating KeyForge and Worlds Collide Meta Predictions with Erich Taylor

Episode 28: Commentating KeyForge and Worlds Collide Meta Predictions with Erich Taylor

November 19, 2019
Archons of the Crucible,

We may have gone a bit overboard on the doozy of an episode with not one, but two main topics. But then again, it isn't every day we welcome into the Sanctumonius castle someone with the KeyForge bona fides as team SAS-LP's own Erich Taylor AKA JusticeBlinded. In this episode, we introduce a brand new segment: SHORTY'S BREW, where we ask a quick question you can discuss over brews on one of the crucible's many pubs. We get into a discussion of KeyForge commentary and how to do it well, but we don't stop there. We take on a secondary main topic, where we talk through predictions for how World's Collide will shake up the KeyForge metagame, and Erich wonders if a Worlds Collide deck with only commons can win an archon Vault Tour. Join us to find out in this MEGA episode of Sanctumonius and FORGE THOSE KEYS!

And if you can't get enough of that sweet, weet JusticeBlinded content...

Episode 26: Sealed Tournament Tips

November 5, 2019

Archons of the Crucible,

Sealed tournaments are pure magic. Mystery, intrigue, and discovery, it is all there. Each tournament is as unique as the decks that make up the great game of KeyForge. In this episode of Sanctumonius, allow Sir Jake, Sir Dan, and Sir Alex to guide you into the fires of sealed, so you might emerge victoriously. We offer up our best tips, strategies, and thinking about the sealed format so that you can take down the next store championship, prime, or vault tour in front of you. With these tips firmly inside your pocket, we urge you to go forth and FORGE THOSE KEYS! 

P.S.

Congrats to B_Hawk for winning the T-Shirt design contest.

Episode 25: Preparing for a Tournament with Friends

October 29, 2019

Archons of the Crucible,

It's spooky season. Sir Jake has gone missing leaving poor Sir Dan terrified and alone in the dark, gloomy castle. As dark consumed the last embers of the dying day, two friends have appeared to illuminate the castle once more with the power of friendship! For the first time ever, there are two guest co-hosts in the castle. Sanctumonius Communiteam's own Sir Alex Slotnick returns for a 3rd appearance on the show. We also welcome Blake aka @blvdPAPERFIGHT from the Help From Future Self Podcast into the castle for the first time. Together the group discusses tournament preparation and how you can leverage your friends as testing partners to make the most of it. Speaking of, with friends like these you won't need enemies to FORGE THOSE KEYS!

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!
