Best Limited Red Common and Uncommon Innistrad: Midnight Hunt cards

Published

on

Innistrad: Midnight Hunt is ushering in a long-awaited rotation to Standard, but the Limited format is also shaping up to be a complex puzzle that increases the difficulty level after a relatively simple summer set.

The fall set is centered around traditional color pairs with several new and returning mechanics that are centered around various tribal synergies. Humans, Vampires, Zombies, and Werewolves are the primary tribes represented in Midnight Hunt.

Midnight Hunt is scheduled to release on Magic Online and Magic Arena on Sept. 16 with a full worldwide tabletop release on Sept. 24.

Red is an excellent complementary color for the G/R Werewolves, U/R spells, and R/W Humans aggro. There is a critical mass of direct damage, aggressive Creatures, and ways to take advantage of day and night in Red.

Keep an eye out for Red when Midnight Hunt and Innistrad: Crimson Vow are drafted together as a part of the Double Feature event coming next year.

Here are the best Red Common and Uncommon cards in Midnight Hunt for Limited.

Brimstone Vandal

Brimstone Vandal is a solid Creature that’s hard to block and interacts with Red’s life loss theme and the set’s Daybound and Nightbound mechanic. Red and Black are centered around additional effects that trigger if an opponent loses life that turn. Brimstone Vandal deals one damage when day turns into night or night turns into day. Even if your deck doesn’t focus on Daybound and Nightbound, the state of the game will naturally change.

Whether you’re running Black or Green as a second color, Brimstone Vandal will generally be a playable card.

Burn the Accursed

Removal is important in Limited. Burn the Accursed is an expensive spell at five mana, but it is an Instant, hits your opponent or two damage, and exiles a Creature when it kills it. This card is worth playing to deal with an opponent’s bomb Creature or threat that can return from the graveyard. 

Moonrager’s Slash

This might be the best Red Common in the set. If it is day then Moonrager’s Slash is a fine three damage Instant for three mana. It’s not great, but certainly not bad. If it is night, this card becomes Lightning Bolt. One mana to deal three damage to any target is premium removal and in a set focused on Daybound and Nightbound, it should be not a significant amount of the time. Play this card.

Cathartic Pyre

Cathartic Pyre is a versatile piece of removal. The card deals three damage to a Creature or Planeswalker which is useful at any stage of the game. The second ability sets Cathartic Pyre to be a playable card in Limited. Being able to discard two cards, in a set with Flashback, and draw that many cards is valuable. This is a removal spell that is never dead in hand. Any Red deck will likely run one of these if they can pick it up.

Famished Foragers

Red four-drops are hit-or-miss in Limited. They are typically aggressive Creatures that get stumped by go-wide decks with chump blockers. Famished Foragers looks like it’s a hit. This four-mana Vampire comes with a standard 4/3 body with two strong abilities. If an opponent loses life the turn you cast it, you generate three Red mana. This enables a big double-spell turn and effectively makes Famished Foragers a one-mana 4/3.

If you have nothing to cast with that extra three mana, Famished Foragers’ second ability lets you spend that mana to rummage. It won’t be worth it to have 3 of these in your Limited deck, but one should make the cut every time.

Purifying Dragon

This evasive threat must be dealt with, but with three toughness it doesn’t dodge most of the damage-based removal in Midnight Hunt. This card demands an answer or it will end the game quickly, however. The attack trigger is fine. It won’t kill many Creatures but it could force trades in combat by knocking a three-toughness Creature down to two. 

Purifying Dragon does get rid of Decayed Zombie tokens well by dealing two damage to them.

Lunar Frenzy

Lunar Frenzy is an excellent combat trick with the potential to be a win condition. As a combat trick, this helps you win combat with a substantial power boost for the cost and giving your Creature First Strike. As a finisher, Lunar Frenzy’s ability to give a Creature Trample is an effective way to get through that last bit of damage. This card is great at any stage of the game and is worth playing.

New World team share details of upcoming server transfers in Q&A

Published

on

New World players have been eagerly awaiting news on the promised server transfers that Amazon Game Studios announced to remedy long server queues on launch. While they have been delayed, many questions were answered regarding the subject during a Q&A on the New World forum earlier today.

The Q&A took the most popular questions from the community regarding the server transfer service and provided some insight into its limitations, what players can expect, but sadly, no official date for it to join the game.

When server transfers are added to the game, all players will receive a single transfer token that is tied to the account, not character. This means that if you have multiple characters, you’ll only be able to transfer one. These tokens will be permanent so they can be used any time after distribution.

Amazon also confirmed that players will only be able to transfer between servers in the same region, but cross-region transfers are something the team is looking into for the future.

Something that players were worried about was not being able to transfer into servers that are currently marked ‘full,’ but the team attempted to ease fears of this by sharing that many servers will have the ‘full’ tag removed over the coming days.

“We monitor full status on a daily basis with changes as recently as today,” the spokesperson wrote. “’Full’ doesn’t indicate a server that always has queues, it indicates a server that during typical peak usage has a substantial queue. We will be relaxing Full status on many worlds when transfers start, to allow the most flexibility possible. After transfers have slowed down we will re-evaluate which worlds might still need the designation.”

If server transfers overwork a server, the team said they will re-evaluate and hand out new transfer tokens to players where necessary.

There were plenty of other questions answered so if you’d like to know what was said in detail you can check out the Q&A here.

NoPing releases its Dota 2 roster, will reform for next DPC season

Published

on

NoPing e-sports and its Dota 2 rosters have agreed to part ways ahead of the next Dota Pro Circuit season. In a statement, NoPing said it will be fielding a new roster for the next season, but the organization has no news to share at the moment. 

This is the second top-level South American roster to split with its sponsor organization in order to pursue other opportunities, following Thunder Predator doing the same following The International 10. 

“By decision of all players in the team, we will not continue with the current lineup,” NoPing said. “We respect the decision and wish success to the players that took the NoPing VPN name to various achievements in Dota 2.” 

Neither NoPing nor the players—William “hFn” Medeiros, Gonzalo “Darkmago” Herrera, Oscar Chavez, Farith “Matthew” Puente, and Jose “Panda” Padilla Hernandez—specified why the decision was made, but it is likely due to the team failing to qualify for TI10. Even though they were one of three teams from SA to make it to a Major, finishing ninth at the WePlay AniMajor, they flamed out in the regional qualifiers, losing to Infinity and Team Unknown.

It is also unclear if the players wish to continue playing together or if they will disband entirely and look to find teams elsewhere rather than pursuing a new sponsor together. Here are the players that are now looking for a new home. 

With this announcement, only beastcoast and SG esports remain untouched among the top four teams in SA, meaning they have an edge heading into the next DPC season if their squads remain together. The ex-TP players did note that they would continue playing together, so even if they don’t find a new sponsor they will likely still be a force in the region.

Call of Duty: Mobile season 9 is called Nightmare

Published

on

Call of Duty: Mobile’s season nine is almost here. The new season will be called Nightmare, Activision revealed today, as Halloween is right around the corner.

As usual, a lot of new content is dropping with the season. This includes a Battle Pass (BP) which contains a new operator, weapon, blueprints, calling cards, charms, and more.

At tier 14 of the free BP, players will be able to get the Tak-5 Operator Skill. This skill gives players the ability to heal their team in battle. Besides this, players will be able to get the Swordfish at tier 21. This tactical rifle was first seen in Black Ops 4 and is now making its way to CoD: Mobile as well.

Modern Warfare’s Havoc Sawmill will be the new map for season nine. Additionally, the Halloween Standoff is returning to the game for a limited time as well to mark the festival.

Later in the season, players will also be able to unlock a new weapon, tactical equipment, and battle royale class through seasonal challenges. The weapon is called Thumper, which is a grenade launcher with just one ammunition. Flash Drone is the new tactical equipment that blinds enemies. Finally, the Pumped BR Class gives players a jetpack to take to the skies.

The season will last for about a month. The new content will be available gradually throughout season nine, Nightmare.
