Hey all, so since I can't make it to Gen Con and play Hex I decided I'm going to go through each of the decks and pick apart the strengths and weaknesses of each deck that will be available to players. This is going to be a series where I'll post my analysis leading up to a final ranking of all 6 decks. My first post in the series is up taking a look at the Mono-Blood deck.

At first blush it might seem sub-par, but there are a few underlying themes that might give it a hidden strength. Check out the article here and let me know what you think:

New article for the next deck in the series. Check out my Shin'hare Blood/Wild deck analysis here. What do you think? Better than the Mono- Blood?

Good work Grissnap. It will be interesting to see when the Mushwocky is a good play (or how hungry he really is). Every deck has quick action speed removal except for the artifact deck, which has Sapper's Charge and Argus.

Thanks for the kind comments! The next article is up taking a look at the Diamond deck. Will it be a strong contender? Check it out here:

Okay, so mission creep happened... there were more decks! So now I've had to post 2 decks a day for today and tomorrow in order to get everything out before GenCon.

Next two up here:

Thanks! I actually kind of rushed these last two as the pace has been pretty hard to keep up. But they are out now:
