The Strangers of New Valhalla: Preview Article 1 - The Corruption

Greetings once again, Rulers of the world. We are returning to the spotlight after quite a long hiatus! Welcome back to another spoiler season, this time with the our wonderful second set of the New Valhalla Cluster, The Strangers of New Valhalla.

As a return to form, we will be accompanying some previews with these written articles. Please let us know on our Facebook Page whether or not you like us doing these write ups!

Oh, and one more exciting thing! For each 100 shares of the linking article on our facebook page, we will pick someone's name out at random and send them a brand new copy of the popular card previewed on that day! That means 200 shares = 2 people getting selected, 300 shares = 3 people getting cards! Let’s show everyone that Force of Will is here loud and clear!


Well let’s get started shall we?!





As the curtain opens on New Valhalla, we are met with an ancient face, a face that some have never met before. Athenia, a powerful human mage who has slumbered in the ruins of Valhalla has been awakened. As the conflicts of New Valhalla heat up, all the powerful factions are building up their armies with the most powerful allies they can find. We see Athenia has had a bit of a rough awakening, as she has been awoken by the Lich and her minions. As Athenia enters the battlefield, she demands a sacrifice from your opponent as her corrupt power sweeps in. What’s even more terrifying is if your opponent isn’t able to banish a resonator upon her entrance, she will start to eat away at your opponent's magic stone resources as well! When Athenia is in play, she leaves behind a wake of death, as she can either attack your enemies for large amounts of damage, or melt away your enemies weaker resonators. Even in death, Athenia leaves ruin. When she leaves for the graveyard, she forces the opponent to banish any non-J-Ruler entity… (THAT MEANS EVEN MAGIC STONES!) May anyone rue the day the battled with the God of Ruin.


Following Athenia, we have a Chant/Rune that continues Athenia’s nasty awakening. Ruined Earth is all that awaits near the awakening of the slumbering God. As the awakening ritual corrupted Athenia’s pure spirit, Athenia in turn corrupts all that around her that was once good. Not even the power of magic stones can withstand her power.





Next is a look at the effects of Athenia’s corruption all around her as she awakens to her full potential. Dragon Zombie has continued to putrefy and may not initially seem incredibly potent at first glance, but combined with the ability to turn a fallen ally’s death into a lethal choice for an enemy blocker in draft or sealed means anyone fighting against the Lich’s minions will be second guessing their tactics.


Finally we see the resting place of Athenia, an orchard that encapsulates the essence of her newfound allies. As the zombie hordes continue to pile up against the waves of your opponents resonators, the Orchard slowly grows new resonators for you to fight with! Don’t forget this Orchard is watching both sides of the field, so as you kill your opponents resonators or your own zombies fall before you, they will continue to fight as the battle goes on giving you an unstoppable zombie presence. Remember too that you can use the Orchard as a backup plan, as Lich does, against large board wipes. Should Belial or Lancelot decide to destroy all your resonators, you can use the orchard at anytime to replenish your onslaught and assure victory for the Lich!




That's all for today, but The Strangers of New Valhalla previews will be posted every weekday at 12PM JST, so check back soon for more new cards! We will continue writing articles for all of our Super Rare and other exciting cards! Remember to share and leave a comment on the official Facebook page!
