One of the ideas that Ritter and I have been bouncing around for the Spicy Brew Series was to build decks centered around a single card. I think that it would be fun for the community, who enjoys watching videos and interacting with players like us, to provide us with these cards to focus our decks around. So, we are calling upon you, community members, to find a single card that is currently in the alpha that you think is awesome, overpowered, under-powered or downright terrible. We are looking to build a deck each week with this idea in mind, and hopefully we will be able to produce a deck that not only can win, but win regularly. We will provide you guys with a deck list in the comments of our Youtube videos, if the deck appeals to you and meshes with your play style we encourage you to use it! We are looking to do this to benefit the community as well as to give ourselves new challenges within the alpha, so please do not be shy. As Ritter said, we are more than willing to play a full deck list that was given to us and make videos of it, and we will even give credit to you when the deck is victorious, or blame you when it falls short :P.

Please don't be shy! share a card that you would like to see a deck centered around!

Isn't the worker bot only a token?


Crash of Beasts.
I like this card a lot, and I actually have placed it inside of my "Big Creature" Deck. I'm not sure if any of the videos on my channel have this card in it, but I can always try to concoct another deck revolving around this, and not the big creatures. Keep an eye open for a new video with this card.

Thanks for the recommendation. Ritter and I would be more than happy to create a deck with 4x of this card in it. Keep an eye on the youtube pages

We were very sad when Crash of Beasts was bugged, but now that it's fixed I'm super excited to build with it. I'm going to put my brew hat on as soon as I can and start to churn out some spicy goodness.

I already have a few ideas for what to do with Crash of Beasts. I am eager to get home and put something together to see how it works!

How about Demented Demolisher? can you abuse the removal of all your resources?

Been done. People play with sets of escalation cards and the looting artifact. Run 32 sources or so and once you hit 5 in play you just remove the rest with ~24 cards left in your deck. 4 eternal youth with pact of pain to nearly infinite life.

A quick update before I head off to bed for the eveining: Crash of beasts deck has been created. I was able to play a few rounds with it, and it seems to be working quite effectively. Even with all of the server crashes I think that it has the potential to win regularly. I have one video converting as we speak, although I'm not 100% sure if this will be the finalized deck list for it. I will try to post this video asap.

I need to play a few more games before i decided if I want to keep it as is or make some swaps for different cards. Hopefully I will have a deck tech video as well as a few more play videos up on my youtube page for you all to watch.

Keep the good ideas coming, this is very enjoyable!

Funny enough, I actually started out with a mono sapphire deck that was purely meant to bug out Replicator's Gambit. I included Buccaneer, Ancestor's Chosen, a hax'd Eldritch Dreamer with the blood gem (has been fix't so this little combo doesn't work anymore), etc. I never posted videos of the deck since the whole deck revolved around the Gambit giving an immediate 2x triggers of any enter-the-battlefield ability a creature has if you cast it on that creature. I'm pretty sure that all of that has been fix't, as this was nearly 3 weeks ago.

I will probably give that deck another shot though, as I do think being able to bounce your own troops is certainly an abusable ability to have at your disposal.

Update!

ChannelRitter on YouTube now has a full 4 game set and deck tech featuring deck DMB - aka Crash of Beasts.dec featuring Hex community requested build around card Crash of Beasts. I took the challenge to build a deck using the card in an unusual way, and had a lot of fun going 4-0 in games against some great opponents.

Check it out at http://YouTube.com/user/ChannelRitter

Keep the requests coming! Later tonight and into tomorrow I'll be recording my next set of videos featuring the next community requested build around card for the Spicy Brews! series featuring Devoted Emissary. Show your support for our efforts to provide you with the content you want to see featuring the best Hex Alpha videos on the net by commenting on our videos and posting here on the forums!

As promised, my newest video series featuring the community requested build around card Devoted Emissary is up! You can check out the deck tech, along with 7! videos for your viewing enjoyment. This was a great card to build around, and I had a lot of fun trying out the Inspire mechanic along with all sorts of interesting interactions Devoted Emissary provided.

We need more ideas to build around... please post more requests so Beeph and I (along with the rest of Team Spicy Brew!) can make more videos that you actually want to see. Don't be shy!

With the exciting announcement that they will be sending out the remaining invites to those in the alpha, I'd like to once again extend the offer to help out everyone who has a great idea for a deck to pitch in their ideas and let our crack team of brewers spice it up. We are still looking for card ideas to build around and general feedback about the types of decks you'd like to see featured.

Between myself and Beeph we have near 100 videos for you to check out, with more to come! I highly recommend everyone comes by to see my newest take on Wild/Sapph Aggro featuring some especially spicy cards this time around. You like Pack Raptor? How about a little Ancestor's Chosen and Crash of Beasts? Come in and see how it all plays out.
