As someone who’s dedicated a huge amount of time to Hearthstone over the last few years, Shadowverse was a refreshing change of pace when I first picked it up earlier this year. (You can read my overview of the game here.) While familiar in some respects, it has some really distinct points of difference, such as the ability to evolve minions, and classes with truly bespoke mechanics, and these give it a unique identity and intriguing gameplay possibilities.
Card games don’t stand still, of course, and Shadowverse recently launched its 109 card Darkness Evolved expansion. It’s a strong set, expanding archetypes, introducing new ideas and injecting plenty of additional life into the game as a whole. I’ve had a blast hopping back into the game, but one card in particular has really caught my attention.
