Hello, all.

My name's Chris (aka kapnkrunch) and I'm the Herald for the (relatively) new Hecatomb TCG by Wizards.

I started playing Magic way back in the day when "The Dark" came out but I quit after Weatherlight. I saw Hecatomb a while ago in a store and really liked the transparent cards with the stacking game-mechanic and was hooked.

Anyway, I hope there are lots of other people that get together with their friends for a wholesome evening of summoning demons and destroying the world so we can get some good trading going on!

Take care,
kapnkrunch

It borrows a lot of concepts from Magic but they've made it unique, too. There are four "dooms" and each "doom" is a different type of mana:

- Corruption (Gray)
- Deceit (Blue)
- Destruction (Red)
- Greed (Green)

Each player starts with 5 "souls" and the first to get to 20 souls wins. The three main card types are Minions, Fates, and Relics which are similar in game-play to Creatures, Sorceries, and Enchantments in Magic. There are also "Combat Fates" and "Combat Minions" which can be played as normal Fates or Minions but can also be played like "Instants" during combat.

One interesting game mechanic is that each card can either be played as the card as written or as a mana card. To play a card as a mana card you just put it in play backwards and it is a "land" that produces a mana of the "doom" it represents.

I've only played with a starter and a few boosters but, as far as I can tell, there isn't much of a counter-strategy mechanic like there is in Magic but there are lots of ways to make your opponent's life difficult. The mechanic is simpler than Magic but there is still a wide breadth of play options.
