[top]Tips & Strategies

You get 1 free mulligan at the beginning of each match. Use this to your advantage if you have a sub-par beginning hand. Feel free to restart the match while in campaign if you get a poor starting hand as this will cut down on wasted time towards unlocking all the cards.

You unlock cards by beating ANY opponent, except for Challenges. So, you can unlock cards by repeatedly playing against Chandra Nalaar at the very beginning of the campaign, even though the AI will constantly adjust to your play styles and get increasingly difficult. If you choose to do this, the deck you will fight against is always the same so there's no need to be cautious of cards that would be unlocked in later duels.

Always try to act LAST in each altercation. The chance to go last means that your spell/ability will resolve before the spells/abilities that are already being played. This is known as FILO (First in, Last Out) and using this to your advantage will make many of the more difficult tasks easier.


Dragon Slayer
Defeat Nicol Bolas in the single player campaign (Duel the Dragon)

To obtain this trophy, simply complete every level in the new Campaign path opened from Expansion One, Duel the Dragon. You will have to face Nicol Bolas, who uses a Red, Black, & Blue 're-animator' deck. He loves to discard insanely powerful creatures and then bring them into play from his graveyard with Zombify. Nicol Bolas is notorious for last-minute wins, so never let your guard down. Killing a creature in this duel won't necessarily mean it's gone for good. The Master of Shadows deck worked really well for this duel, however I highly recommend NOT using the Eyes of Shadow deck, as its major mechanic is Discarding, and you don't want to give Nicol Bolas extra opportunities to ditch giant creatures into his graveyard from his hand.

A few creatures to watch for while dueling Nicol Bolas:

Control creatures with a total power of 75 or more (Duel the Dragon)

To obtain this trophy, you will need to control creatures with a combined power of at least 75. Using the Ears of the Elves deck will make this easier since it has Coat of Arms and it's a tribal themed deck. The Coat of Arms will increase your creatures' power and toughness for each Elf in play, but many of the Elves are also Warriors, which will gain them another bonus. A few other cards in the deck that help are Imperious Perfect, Immaculate Magistrate, Drove of Elves, Elvish Champion, and Lys Alana Huntmaster. (images in spoiler)

Next turn, play your other Plains, then play Ambassador Laquatus and use his ability three times to remove all cards from Liliana's library. End your turn, and once she tries to draw a card, you instantly win. (images in spoiler)
