    Helvault Unsealed Preview

    Helvault Unsealed Preview

    We've got a card to preview for you for Spellslinger's upcoming Helvault Unsealed set! See if you can guess it, then let's think through all the decks and slingers it combos with! Wobbles leads the discussion and makes sure we have all the best info.
    This ep is good for newbies to SS as well. That game engine is just different enough from regular MTG that it's informative and interesting to compare cards between them. Definitely some good inspiration here!
    Hop on our Discord and share your ideas for Spellslingers decks and cards! https://discord.gg/t88Vpwh
