Episode 37: Community Questions

February 17, 2020
Archons of the Crucible...

Sir Jake and Sir Dan are up to the challenge. What challenge do you ask? Let me tell you, friend. We put out the call on Discord, on Twitter, on Facebook, and again on Facebook to ask us any question that popped into your mind. And do you know what we did? We answered. Every. Single. One. There are those who back down to a challenge, but the knights of castle Sanctumonius are not those. No. Unless, of course, the challenge is really hard. In that case, maybe. But in the case we are considering today, answering questions, we did not back down. We forged ahead and answered the questions. Now, friends, it's time for you to follow our example, and FORGE THOSE KEYS.

Episode 36: Noah, the Knight of AoA

Episode 36: Noah, the Knight of AoA

February 12, 2020
Archons of the Crucible...

We put out the call. Who, we asked, in the wild world of the crucible would be so daring, brilliant, and, quite possibly, mad enough to pilot an Age of Ascension deck straight into the top 4 of the Albany Vault Tour. Our call was answered. In this episode, the knights welcome Sir Noah into the castle to discuss his experience and crazy run at the Vault Tour. We talk about his legendary deck, Dale. So hop into the episode and find out if a meta shift towards Dinos may in fact open a window for a very specific set of AoA strategies to shine. And besides, Noah teaches us what is better than forging one key on your turn? It's FORGING THREE OF THOSE KEYS!

And here is Noah's deck, Dale, in all its glory: https://www.keyforgegame.com/deck-details/3eb00a5a-2b6d-4cdd-bcd7-e365b7b3c834

Episode 34: Deck, Luck, or Skill? and VT Albany Analysis

Episode 34: Deck, Luck, or Skill? and VT Albany Analysis

January 27, 2020
 
Archons of the Crucible...

In this free-wheeling main topic, Sir Alex and Sir Jake dig into the question on all our minds after a big event: what leads to success in KeyForge? Before that, however, we take a look at the top four finishers at VT Albany and ask, what does this mean for the KeyForge meta moving forward? Hint: We think it matters a lot. And because we are all-knowing, ethereal knights, you should really take our word on this. We don't descend from our castle on high to give you this for you not to listen to us, dear listener. Also, one of these decks is not like the others. So listen up and listen hard, episode 34 of Sanctumonius: a KeyForge podcast is in the shoot and heading straight for your ear holes. Aember at the ready! On the count of three, we forge those keys! THREE!

Episode 33: A Tournament Tale and the New Knight

January 21, 2020
Archons of the Crucible...

Archons of the crucible? Is this thing on? Ahem. Forget about us at your own peril because the knights of Sanctumonius are back, baby! Back and better than ever, by which of course I mean simply that there are more of us than ever. That's right. A third knight has joined the cast on a permanent basis. You know him well as Sir Alex, the one and only NickofSlots. So please join us in a silent showing of reverent adoration to welcome Alex officially into the ethereal role of a co-host. If that wasn't exciting enough, in this episode, we listen to Sir Dan regale us with a tale of his adaptive prime. We ask the question, is AoA low-key the best set for finding an adaptive deck. So get on in here and, high-key, let's forge some mother loving keys!

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...
