The Moonlit Savior – Top Ten

Exciting times lie ahead, fellow Force of Willionaires. A new set, new tricks, new rulers, and a new metagame (hopefully) await us in the following weeks. I want to share with you the top ten cards I believe will most impact competitive Force of Will. Before I actually delve in to my list, I should quantify that I chose to leave Rulers, Regalia, and Stones off of the list. If I had not made this decision, the list would probably be taken up by mostly those cards, leaving little room for anything else. Furthermore, I am of a pretty strong Read more

Oh hey there! It’s been quite some time, hasn’t it? We haven’t gotten to talk in a while, what with Force of Will not really having any major events for a bit. But now with the 2016 Grand Prix circuit back in full force, I figured it was time we…reunite. The season is currently three deep on AGP events, and what better way to come back and talk to you than with a tournament report! And not any tournament report. Not some silly 10th place garbage finish…NO! That’s right, this past weekend in the wonderful state of Texas (the only Read more

Greetings WILLing readers (hehe). Previously, I had planned on writing about new decks and cards and synergies and all around newness, but then something…happened…this past weekend. Something too juicy to NOT write about. That something, was the FORCE OF WILL WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!!! So yea, for all of you unaware (likely no one), the Force of Will World Championship happened this weekend and Riccardo Castagnola of Italy is the official new World Champion. Now we will eventually get to the controversy surrounding this particular result, but I don’t intend to take too much away from Riccardo here. He is our champion, Read more

Hey everyone! I’m back for the exciting continuation of my previous article, found here. I intend to make the wrap-up of my tournament a bit shorter than originally planned. But don’t fret! The reason I’ve made such a rash decision, is so that we can talk about some of the AWESOME NEW SPOILERS. Yes, yes, let as SOON as I’m done recapping, you get to hear some of my wondrous musings on some of the brand new cards due out in Seven Kings of the Land (SKL for future reference). Alright, well I had just taken my first loss in Read more

10th at WGP Houston

Categories: Force of Will

  Hey everybody! I’m back, fresh from the WGP in Houston Texas. While the event didn’t quite go how I planned (winning a slot on the US nation team), I still did reasonably well. However, for flying all the way from Ohio, I had quite high expectations…   First, let’s talk a bit about the event in general.   Being the final event that would qualify desirable hopefuls a chance to go to Worlds in Japan next month, we knew this was going to be a big event. Pre-Registration sold out almost two weeks before the event even took place! Read more

“Play Cheshire Cat” “Resolves” “Draw 2…” “Sorry, I have Abdul in play” “Oh right…Jeeez that card is really unfair…” “Attack with Tinkerbell for 400, Attack with Hunter for 300, Go” “J-Activate Abdul using Grusbalesta, hold priority and activate to give Hunter -300/-300, then use Abdul’s zero ability targeting Tinkerbell” “OK…you killed both my guys with just your Ruler and its only turn two” “Yea, he’s really good, sorry again…” These are just a couple of the common situations I would find myself in game after game, match after match. People trying to do cool things with their cool cards, and Read more

Today I would like to share with you some of my musings on this delightful little game called Force of Will. A game that has been spreading like wildfire in local gaming communities. A game that takes its name (shamelessly?) from our beloved Magic: the Gathering. A game that has caught my interest especially as a competitive tournament player, what with its lucrative regional event series qualifying an elite few for the world championship in Japan later this year. Coming from a competitive Magic: the Gathering background, this game has a ton of appeal to me. Many of the rules Read more
