Baratheon Third Cycle Review (By Daniel ‘George’ Vincent Mulchrone)

Welcome one and all! Tis the season to be jolly! Well…. Unless you are a Baratheon player! Big thank you to Joe for asking me to do this cycle review! Well…. It was really Richard, his hired thug, who asked, but Joe is nicer, so I’ll thank him. Much like Richard and Alex…. And a lot of the other people involved in these reviews these days, I am a UK player. I am based in the hell hole that is Northampton, the upside of this? We have quite a big meta playing lots of different card games trying to...

Targaryen Third Cycle Review (By Justin Sengstock)

What a glorious time to be a dragon! Those of you that read my review of the last cycle may recall that I was pretty down on the cards Targaryen received, a theme that was repeated from the first cycle as well. For quite some time Targ was coasting by on a very strong core set and a rare few gems that had dropped subsequent, but the faction as a whole felt like it was stuck in a holding pattern. Needless to say, that is no longer the case. Targaryen took off like a bat out of hell competitively...

Stark Third Cycle Review (By Alex O’fee-worth)

Greetings! First, a big thanks to Joe, and his executive secretary Richard for inviting me to take part in this cycle review. It’s an honour and a privilege to review the Stark cards for cycle three. Who am I and why should you care about my opinion? By way of introduction for those that don’t know me, I’m a member of the UK-meta based in London. I’ve been playing Stark on and off since I first started playing the game and would consider myself something of a Stark loyalist, with the exception of a three-month flirtation with Martell this...

Martell Third Cycle Review (By Dan Kaye aka Daye Kaniel)

Word up gang, it’s your old boy Dan Kaye here (or Daye, if you’ve ever had the pleasure of arguing with me on Facebook). I’ve been pestering Joe from Cincinnati to let me do one of these cycle reviews for a couple of years now, patiently biding my time. It turns out all I had to do was to wait for was the slow decline of the US player base. So here we are, at the end of cycle 3. It’s been a wild ride, hasn’t it? We’ve gone from the rush meta, to the stall and reset meta,...

Greyjoy Third Cycle Review (By Richard Walker)

Hello people. As Cincinnati Joe won’t pipe down about these boring Night’s Watch cards from the 3rd cycle and Watchers on the Wall box, I thought I had better write some more words about a better faction so that someone would actually read the content he provides (heh). In my opinion, Greyjoy were in a strong position following the end of the second cycle. We had just received Esgred and Victarion Greyjoy, both of whom were very strong characters; the latter being a staple in almost every Greyjoy deck built since his release. Valar Morghulis continued to be everpresent...
