Colorful Cubes: A Guide To Magic Types and Deckbuilding in Ashes Reborn

  1. There’s a lot of cards. Ashes 1.0 kept releasing cards well past it’s heyday, and as Ashes Reborn begins there’s already a sizable backlog. Digging through them is made really easy by the fantastic tools over at Ashes.live, but just because you can sort through all the cards doesn’t necessarily mean you know where to start.
  2. Deckbuilding in Ashes is astonishingly open, giving players very few restrictions on how to construct their own decks. You can build almost anything, which can be a big yikes for players who are used to more direction out of the gate.
