[Shadowverse] Upcoming Nerfs, May 22

22 May 2017 - 12:21 AM

Source here.


  • Lightning Blast's Enhance effect removed.
  • Wind Reader Zell changed from a 2pp 2/2 to a 4pp 3/4. His evolve effect is untouched and still gains the full +2/+2 on evolve.
  • Prince Catacomb's cost increased from 3pp to 4.


[Shadowverse] Prince Catacomb

Fanfare: Give your followers "Last Words: Summon a 1/1 Skeleton."


I can safely say this is the card pushing Shadowcraft into its present-day strength. With him, you get a sticky board for Orthrus to buff, a lot of trading fodder to boost your Shadow Reapers through the roof, followed by a whole load of Shadows to fuel Death's Breath or Eachtar afterwards. In Shadow mirrors, whoever lands Catacombs sooner and on the wider board typically gets the advantage. Landing him on turn 3 after an unopposed 1- and 2-drop is a pretty good advantage barring a few rare outs.


Take out Prince, and you lose Shadowcraft's biggest source of strength. They lose a lot of shadow-gathering momentum. But completely deleting the existence of a card is the easy way out. Cygames' recent nerfs to Goblin Mage and Piercing Rune show that there are ways to reduce a deck's power without effectively erasing it from existence. What, then, would be an elegant way to nerf Prince?

Important things:

  • Piercing Rune will downcost to 2PP instead of 1 when your follower evolves, reducing the strength of the turn 4 Levi-Piercing tempo swing.
  • Goblin Mage now can also grab 1PP followers, destroying the consistency of Miracle Roach.
  • Expansions to Story Mode for certain characters.
  • Elite 2 AI and accompanying gold achievements.
