Class Overview

Runecraft is one of the few classes that have completely different play styles. 

1. Spellboost: Make your spells more powerful by casting other spells. They can cause the cost of a spell to be reduced or to increase the power of the spell itself!

2. Earth Rite: Focuses heavily on the concept of "Creation" and "Destruction" Use earth sigils to active powerful abilities!

Very rarely are both of them in the same deck so there are decks specifically designed around these 2 special mechanics!

Class Staples

Insight Insight 1

Insight is a card that is used in many rune decks as a way of cycling through cards. It also helps with spellboosting your cards as well.

"I'm just a mage...who's as old as dirt!"

One of, if not the most, important Runecraft card in the game! This dirty old man is a powerhouse capable of dealing with multiple threats! At the cost of an evolution point and a mere 2PP, Levi can trade with an opponents follower on board and add a spell to your hand called Crimson Sorcery. A 1PP spell that does 3 damage to any target! That includes your opponents face. 

Since Levi adds a spell to your hand, he can be be used to help spellboost the spells in your hand but he is very capable of being used in decks that do not use spellboost!

Conjure Golem Conjure Golem 2

"Oooooh!"

Conjure Golem is a special type of spell. It is a spell and a follower rolled into one package! While assisting you with spellboosting the cards in your hand, it summons a 2/2 golem that you can use to either deal damage to your opponent or help trade with your opponents followers.

Deck Archetypes

Earth Rite Runecraft (or Earth Rune for short) is very different than the other rune decks. It is based on the principles of "Creation" and "Destruction". Using many cards and abilities to summon "Earth Sigils" and then using certain abilities to destroy the sigils and gain powerful effects.

Dimension Shift Runecraft is a deck that revolves around defeating your opponent by taking extra turns with its namesake card. It is one of the most difficult decks to pilot and requires a lot of practice. 

Neutral Rune is a bit different than the other rune decks since it has access to a powerhouse known as Falise, Leonardian Mage. If you are looking a neutral deck with a slightly different feel, neutral rune is where you want to be!

Daria Runecraft is a deck that uses the spellboost mechanic but in a different manner than the dimension shift deck. Daria Runecraft focuses heavily on spellboosting their followers instead to reduce their costs and make them easier to summon. With this deck, you can flood the board in a matter of just a few turns!

Burn Rune is a deck that uses various cards to literally burn your opponents to death. It also do very well against other aggressive decks. If you are interested in a simple deck with a ton of power, give this deck a try!
