Keyforge Dark Tidings

Fantasy Flight Games has announced Dark Tidings, the fifth set for its unique-deck card-dueling game Keyforge: Call of the Archons.

Keyforge: Dark Tidings introduces a new house, a new mechanic, and a new type of deck it's possible to open. The new House is House Unfathomable, which replaces House Dis in the set. The Unfathomable are ocean-dwelling creatures focused on exhausting enemy creatures. The new mechanic is high and low tide. Every deck in the Dark Tidings set has a tide card designating high tide for one side and low tide for the other. Some cards are more powerful or only playable if you have high tide, which means it would be low tide for your opponent. Some cards can change the tide state. Additionally, the player with low tide can suffer three chains to change the tide state. The new deck type is an Evil Twin Deck. These decks are nearly identical to a deck that previously has been printed in Keyforge. However, it will be designated an Evil Twin in the deck's name, and some of the creatures in the deck will be replaced with an Evil Twin variant. These variants have new artwork and slightly modified abilities. 

Like all previous Keyforge content, Dark Tidings is designed by Richard Garfield. The new expansion set is scheduled to release in the first quarter of 2021.
