A few of us on the forum have been playing and enjoying this, i play daily trying my best to get better at the game.

 

I have this on steam, iPhone & iPad all linked to the same account which is how obsessed i've gotten with it.

 

I became aware of it through the "best ccg on ios" thread, when @Tourist has been talk to me  about the game and i had no idea that a lot of Fighting Game competitors play it too which you can see in the video below:-

 

Spoiler

 

 

This hypes me to play and learn it even more!

A couple of things!

 

This deck is pretty effective in unlimited right now and it's fun to play:

https://shadowverse-portal.com/deck/1.6.6YBRY.6YBRY.6YBRY.63dOW.63dOW.63dOW.63gJY.63gJY.63gJY.6F3pC.6F3pC.6F3pC.6F6FS.6F6FS.6F6FS.6MkXc.6MkXc.6MkXc.6YFqo.6YFqo.6YFqo.5_pzw.5_pzw.5_p-4.5_p-4.5_p-4.6MlGA.6MlGA.6MlGA.6FB7o.6FB7o.6FB7o.6YDOY.6YDOY.6YDOY.6YFr6.6YFr6.6YFr6.63i_Q.63i_Q?lang=en#

 

Hope the link works. Basically it has a ton of cards that do damage to yourself as well as your opponent;then a few finishers that do damage directly to your opponent, some of them in proportion to how many times you've damaged yourself; and a few cards that draw other cards. 

 

The other thing is that if you haven't noticed there is a new expansion arriving at the end of the month. I personally spend the month before a new expansion not spending any coins and just farming as much coin as I can from my daily missions and grand prix/arena matches so that when the expansion hits I can blow it all on card packs.

 

Just FYI!

Play through your daily missions. Play the grand Prix matches every day when they are on. Play through the single player story. Play room matches against different opponents. Beat the AI training matches on the hardest two difficulties. There are other achievements that give you coins, like reaching a certain level with a particular class.

 

You can also liquefy cards to get vials that you can use to create cards. If you go to the card screen there should be an option to do that. I only ever liquefy extras (ie. any cards where I've got more than three copies which is the maximum allowed in a deck). There is a button which does that automatically. Then whenever I'm desperate for vials info through and liquefy any animated extras. A lot of people like to keep the animated cards because they look so nice but they give you extra vials so liquefying them is one way of getting enough for a competitive deck. 

 

There are a few places you can look for competitive deck lists, like gamepress or bagoum, or Reddit (or gamewith if you can read Japanese). Manasurge also post a regular tier list. You could always try a few out and see if there are any top tier deck lists that you are close to having enough cards/vials for. I often just try out the deck codes and save out a bunch of decks making a note of how many vials each one would take to complete and then just complete the ones that are the cheapest.

 

Some of the current top tier decks are a little expensive but there is a decent aggro forest craft deck that is fairly cheap, and I have a decent budget swordcraft for rotation. You could also Google 'budget decks shadowverse' or something.

Here is that budget swordcraft deck:

https://shadowverse-portal.com/deck/1.2.5zWm2.5zWm2.5zWm2.5-Hb2.5-Hb2.5-Hb2.6LFJi.6LFJi.6LFJi.5-HbC.5-HbC.5-HbC.5-Hbq.5-Hbq.5-Hbq.6HOkc.6HOkc.6HOkc.6SojM.6SojM.6SojM.6Sw1o.6Sw1o.6Sw1o.6LCtS.6LCtS.6LCtS.6Sr9c.6Sr9c.6Wcs2.6Wcs2.6Wcs2.6HMI2.6HMI2.6HMI2.6LG2Q.6LG2Q.6WiTQ.6WiTQ.6WiTQ?lang=en#

 

If I get Juliet in my opening hand I always swap her back in - round table assembly is in the deck to draw two Juliet's on turn five. And I almost always use Celia on turn five for her storm effect - if you have any other followers in play she returns them to hand and gets +1 attack for each. Mostly the goal is just to attack the enemy leader, swarming the board with smaller followers until turn five when round table assembly, Celia, or dragon knights can all do a bunch of storm damage.

 

Oh, also for coins, remember to log in every day!

Gamewith is great but I think they only really reflect the most popular decks. The best success I ever have tends to be with niche decks that I find in random places.

 

And of course there is always something to be said for playing meme decks in unranked. I think my favourite decks are still carabosse/bats blood and nephtys shadow, neither of which are ultra competitive right now but still a lot of fun to play!

The shadowverse contenders cup is currently being streamed on twitch. Some interesting matches so far.

 

The contenders cup determines who will go to Tokyo for the million dollar tournament at the end of the year. The south East Asian tournament just finished and a guy who qualified via a wild card beat Xian (the street fighter guy) to qualify. Now it's the American region and there's another wild card guy doing well. Next week is Europe.

By the way, the decklists for the Contenders Cup are here (SPOILER though - they reveal the results of the tournament):

I gave Potwasher's Swordcraft a run yesterday and it worked really well. 

 

If you have just started out it might be worth trying to aim for one competitive deck like this one so that you can start ranking up and building out your card collection; then using budget decks for other classes so that you can do your daily missions until you have enough cards to build more than one competitive deck.
