A new Event dawns upon Eredan today and it is rather manageable.

Here are hints and fact for this event:

General:

- Each day people have the chance to fight a reflection with a guild-specific deck.
- For each victory you gain Half-moons, a currency for the special shop.
- You gain 10 Half-moons for your first victory, 9 for the second, and so on. That means you can gather up to 55 Half-Moons a day.
- Guild and Newcomer Boosters provides 50 Half-moons
- After getting Theya the Equinoxian you can buy Newcomer Boosters for 150 Half-Moons
- If you defeat each Reflection 10 times you can buy Theya and a Newcomer Booster. If you defeat each 5 times, you can buy Theya.

Prizes:


Costs 345 Half-moons in the Store.


Won after defeating 3 different Reflections.


Won after defeating all 9 Reflections.

Day 1, “Reflection: Noz’Dingard Envoys”:

Cost: 5 Energy
Deck: 20 cards, includes:
- Double Clay
- Gust
- Lightning Bolts
- Master-Mage Robe
- Mage’s Grand Staff
- The Last Word
- Rain of Death
Victory condition:
- Kill the reflection. As long as he’s dead survival of your characters doesn’t matter.
- The reflection is subject to losing via discard.
Strategy:
He plays only spells and as such his physical offense is negligible. His strong stats are Spirit and Defense, which can be reduced by cards like Harshness, Kotoba Shadow, Reborn and Wanted to make the fight easier.
The best way to fight him is to either be very aggressive and kill him fast, or to reduce his spirit and outlast him. Discard works but is hampered by the fact that he returns most cards played to his deck and as such it is slowed down a bit.

Day 2, “Reflection: Zil Warriors”:

Cost: 5 Energy
Deck: 20 cards, including:
- Assassination
- Life Devourer
- Master Assassin
- Time to Die

Victory condition:
Kill or discard him.

Strategy:
Portal Combat and Daemonium work extremely well against this boss. Given his cards and bonus you will only survive turns where he plays Life Devourers. As an alternate plan a quick and hard-hitting deck should work, since he will not increase his defense. Also for some reason he never chains the Assassinations into a Life Devourer.

Day 3, “Reflection: Kotoba”:

Cost: 5 Energy
Deck: 29 cards, including:
- Firon
- Keep your Guard up
- Kensensai
- Kusanagi
- The best defense
- The Emperor’s Speech
- Ultrapower
- Wakiizashi
- Weapons at Will

Victory condition:
Kill him.

Strategy:
Beware he has Dual Wild!

Important to note about his passive ability is that while it prevents penalties, setting it to a certain value, like Magic Attack, Stink Bomb or Tantadian Spear, still works.

The best strategies against him are Magic Blast, since his only defense against magic damage is a Spirit value of 1 and Portal Combat, which steals his monstrous attack. However a strong offensive deck with cards that circumvent his defense will work too, finishing him before he kills you.

Day 4, “Reflection: Sap Heart”:

Cost: 5 Energy
Deck: 25 cards, including:
- Briskness
- Elfine Intimidation
- Eltarite Heritage
- Quickdraw
- Surprise Attack

Victory condition:
Kill or Discard him.

Strategy:
He attacks multiple times a turn, reduces your defense and heals by hitting you. All in all a rather tough boss, but a durable Golem deck or a strong Mage Blast deck can take him out. Since all his additional attacks are made at strength 8, a high defense helps a lot.
Also apparently when he has Root attached he doesn’t play cards very often.

Day 5, “Reflection: Pirates”:

Cost: 5 energy
Deck: 20 cards, including:
- Double or Quit
- Jolly Roger
- Live Devourer
- Obesity
- Tricorne
- Wallop

Victory condition:
Kill or discard her.

Strategy:
Her order bonus damages herself too. Pirate decks can make use of the powder and provide their own to turn the damage she deals lopsided. Other than that she loses all her cards on revival and hasn’t a too dangerous deck. A quick enough offensive deck takes care of her.
Defensive decks don’t fare too well against her due to her reducing defense and dealing direct damage.

Day 6, “Reflection: Desert Nomads”:

Cost: 5 Energy
Deck: 30 cards, including:
- Divine Light
- Divine Punishment
- Idolatry
- Lamentation of Sol’ra
- Mercy
- Misantrophy
- Omniscience
- Sacred Nova
- Sol’ra Bumblebee
- Storm of Ptol’a
- Swarm of Scarabs

Victory condition:
Kill him.

Strategy:
This guy is though. He has a high magical offense and heals a lot (6 Mercies!!). Also while he doesn’t focus on his physical offense, he doesn’t neglect it either. Golem or even better Aelide is your best bet here, and if you have Sentence or Shadowblade, that’s a big plus. Given that some of his cards use his spirit value, reducing it via Wanted is a good idea, but it wont make him harmless.
One quirk of the AI: If he has a hand full of healing, he wont play any unless he’s hurt
Be prepared to lose a few games.

Day 7, “Reflection: Mercenaries”:

Cost: 5 Energy
Deck: 30 cards, including:
- …than the sword
- Double Clay
- Illusory Reflection
- Magic Attack
- Mirage

Victory condition:
Kill him.

Strategy:
All cards with a guild symbol are ignored. You can’t use them.
He mainly focuses on attack and defense and as such a quick marauder deck with cards like Distraction, No Armor!or in some cases Magic Attack works well. Since most of his spells are dependent on his spirit value, using Wanted is recommended too. He often prefers attack increases over defensive ones and it’s possible to just kill him fast enough. Sabotaging his spells with Mental Prison is also a way to give you a turn respite, just don’t forget his order bonus.
Also if you defeated all Reflections so far, after two fights you should be able to buy Theya, and she’s a real asset here.

Day 8, “Reflection: Nehantists”:

Cost: 5 Energy
Deck: 20 cards, including:
- Kiss of Nehant
- Overconfidence
- Perversion
- Tiredness
- Vital Syphon

Victory condition:
Kill or discard him.

Strategy:
He will drain your attack, but his offense is low and he only deals magical damage.
If you bring high Spirit, he will heal a lot, but deal you almost no damage, if you bring low spirit you are on a short timer. Discard works extremely well against him, and Golem should work too, as long as you can increase your offense and spirit high enough.
If you play a Nehant deck against him, you can use Pulling the Strings and other tricks to throw his corruptions back at him and win through attrition.

Day 9, “Reflection: Runic Legion”:

Cost: 5 Energy
Deck: 30 cards, including:
- …and judge us!
- Centorium helmet
- Honor the Enemy
- Protection of the Pantheon
- Runic Shield
- Runic Training
- Stitches
- Temple of the Goddess
- The Gods keep us…

Victory condition:
Kill or discard her.

Strategy:
Wanted! Destroy her spirit and you neuter her order bonus. If she has no spirit, she is almost harmless. Key of the Eternal prevents her Order bonus if you have it and while she has some offensive cards, they’re not that threatening if your defenses are up to par.
A quick discard deck or golem deck can also work against her.
