Just an update

Sorry for the lack of updates. As a few of you know, I have moved into college and once I get settled in, you will see more updates, more tcdop articles, and well...more of me ;).

New blog

Just making a quick post about a new chaotic blog :). I'm sorry for the lack of updates, but we'll see if we can get more out there soon :).

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

I meant to put it up yesterday

But the day got away from me. You see I'm actually heading off to college on Friday, so I don't have nearly as much Chaotic time as I usually do and such. But you guys don't want this to turn into a "real" blog about my life; you guys want more previews!!

Battle95 already spoiled my fun a bit, but I would have done the same thing in his position :P.

Sunday, August 23, 2009


I hope you enjoy this new preview. Sadly, there is only one more after this, but I'm sure you will all want to know what Maxxor's armor does ;).

More cards to love!

What do you think of it?

New Lore, as promised

"Lore may play Mugic Cards in your discard pile as if they were in your hand. If you play a Mugic Card this way, remove it from the game."

Obviously this will add a whole new aspect to Danian decks, but I want to hear what you guys think of it!

Pictures from Gen Con

Action figures, video games, and even a picture of Dragonix battling Invis! Obviously, Invis wouldn't allow a good picture of his face out there ;).

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

Gen Con Pictures!

I'll be posting pictures every other day (or maybe more, prehaps you should check it out each day just in case) with more cards. Today, just to wet your appitites, are some cards from the Chaor/Underworld deck. Enjoy!

New Lore?

Just an update before I come home tomorrow. I have a couple of cards from the next set that I will be posting over the next week or so. One of which is the new Lore. I let you guys guess what he does ;).

Tuesday, August 11, 2009

Leaving tomorrow!

I'm leaving for Gen Con tomorrow. I'll be sure to take videos and pictures which will be uploaded here and on for you guys! I'll be coming home on Monday, but I might be able to make a couple of updates over the course of the next few days :).

Card Analysis

Seeing as I can't seem to keep a weekly schedule, I'll stop calling this card of the week. Hopefully the one person who still looks for updates will be pleased :).

Let's talk about Elemental Denial

I've been on a Zenith of the Hive kick these past few days. I don't know why, but I've just rediscovered the set and I just love it! A great example of what I mean is with Elemental Denial. This uncommon from ZoTH can almost guarantee a win in several situations. With the metagame putting so much emphasis on elements, making an opponent lose one, let alone multiple elements, is a death sentence. Not to mention with the rule change around Element X and Fluidmorph no longer functioning if you have the corresponding element, this card can shut just about anyone down.

So, rate it out of 5 :).

Up and Coming Blog

I'm sure you guys already saw OGPLAYA's post about his and Becketts's new blog, but I figure I might as well do some promotion for their new website :).

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

Quick Change

The Chaotic Insider link will be changed. They are under a new name and on a new website. They are now called "Chaotic Campaigns" and its new link is The ad I have will now direct you to the new sit, even though the picture is the same for now :).

Sunday, July 19, 2009

Perim Tour!

Hey guys! The Perim Tour has finished, but our coverage has not. Nick07 and I will tell you all about the event, the new decks we found there, and, of course, the brand new cards from the codemaster match :).

I, however, still need to get back into the states, so you may have to be patient.

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

Chaotic OP now on Twitter!

Chaotic's OP program is getting a bit of an update, and now has a twitter page for all of us to follow :).

Sunday, July 12, 2009

Perim Tour

The Perim Tour is now less than a week from launching! What do you guys think of the event? Are you guys going? Who do you think will win?

Card of the Week-now with text

I am really sorry for the no text thing, and with the lack of updates. Hopefully, I will get more time to post on the forums and make more posts here on my blog :).

This week's card is Vix'Ben

Ah, Vix'Ben, one of the most inventive uses for fluidmorph to ever come from the R&D lab at TC Digital. It's an ability that uses mugic counters, without actually paying mugic counters.

But, it is a lot more than just an interesting ability. It is both artistic and functional. Vix'Ben is escentially a reusable Refrain of Denial. Over the course of the game, you will probably counter more than a single mugic card, which means you will have at least one mugic card in your hand more than your opponent will. Chaotic is a numbers game, which means you should work to get yourself in a possition of power. More creatures, more mugic, or more build points in your attack deck will put you on the fast track of winning the match you're in.

So, rate him out of 10 :).

From the Gauntlet Returns!

That's right, my From the Gauntlet article returns today! To make up for the lack of updates these past few weeks, this week will have not one, not two, but three From the Gauntlets will be put up this week. One is already up, so be sure to check this week to catch up on the fun!

In case you guys forgot, here is a link to my From the Gauntlet column on the op website:

Today is Creepy Kha'rallies, what do you think of it?

Sunday, June 21, 2009

We have a winner, and a brand new counter!

Yeah, apparently you guys broke the last one so.... :P

I don't know exactly what was the problem with it, but I got a new one, leaving right where the last one left off. But, we do have a winner. Gravity77 was the first of actually three people to have a 100,000th screenshot, so he will be given an ultra rare card! We just need to work out which one now.

Thank you all for participating!

Trading an Ultra for a picture

Yep, I'll trade the first person to send me via email or PM on the chaotic website a picture of my 100,000th hit for an Ultra rare card. Who will do it? What card will they win? Only time will tell!

Card of the Week

Welcome back for what will hopefully be the first in a long line of installments of Chaotic Card of the Week! This week, lets talk about Choral of the Apparition.

This beautiful card is probably on of the biggest boosts for Danian Compost decks. Not only can you use it to get back one of your big fighters, but you also get to get a compost mandiblor and send it to the discard pile to get use of it's ability.

Some players may be turned off by the two counter cost, but it really isn't that big of a deal. If you have an Illexia in play, you have absolutely nothing to worry about. You got one counter before because one of your danians has to be in the discard pile, you get another counter by sacrificing another Mandiblor, and you will get another counter when the new Mandiblor that comes back is sent to the discard pile again. So, this mugic ends up paying for itself in the long run, so you should have no worries about playing it!

So what do you think of this card? Is it underpowered, overpowered, underplayed, over played? All constructive comments welcome :).

There WILL be a card of the Week on Thursday

Just to let you know, I will be posting a new card of the week this Thursday, so stay tuned!

Friday, June 5, 2009

No card of the week this week

I'm sorry, but life continues to be busy and is getting in the way of my blog and many other things I want to do right now. In the next few weeks, I should have much more free time to devote to you guys and Chaotic in general :).

Chaotic card of the week

This week we'll be talking about Illusionary Lake.

I absolutely love this location. It it is a great location for any deck that does not use the water element. The location's first ability will be in effect before initiative is decided, so neither creatures will have the element water when it decides who gets to attack first. This means unless your opponent's creature has surprise, you will always get the initiative.

So this location is great for two reasons. The first is that you almost always get the initiative. The second is that your opponent loses the water element. This effect is even stronger thanks to the new rules involving element x.

So rate it out of five :).

Guessing Time!

 has put up this new image on their website. Who do you think these creatures are, and what do you think their new abilities will be? We already know one is Tangath, so let's focus on the other two :).

Return of the Card of the Week

Tell your friends! I'm back with the first CCtW in a very long time, so I hope you aren't that mad.

This week the card is Ailav!

Courage: 50
Power: 30
Wisdom: 90
Speed: 75
Energy: 50

This conjuror is a work of art. He is the ultimate protector of warbeasts. All other conjurors prevent the damage that warbeasts would deal to themselves, but Ailav goes one step further than that. He can prevent all forms of damage. This includes attacks, mugic, abilities, and even the recklessness damage that the warbeasts have.

Not only that, but he is a much more stable conjuror. He isn't a weak defenseless creature like the others. He has 50 energy, and two elements, which is a lot more than the other conjurors can say.

Rate him out of 5 :).

Changes to Blog format

I know I have been really bad with updates lately, and that is partially due to the from the gauntlet, and my own personal life becoming much busier lately. I am going to shift the new Card of the Week to Thursdays, which are a much less busier day for me, and try to get more updates for you guys. But, seeing as next monday will be the start of AP week, I can't promise too much.

So don't worry, I'm still around and stuff :).

Codemaster Chronicles

The next Codemaster Chroniclesis up!

Just an update

Don't forget about the latest From the Gauntlet where I begin to discuss the latest set and new key cards from Turn of the Tide!

Chaotic Card of the Week

Welcome back to yet another Card of the Week! You guys aren't sick of me yet? :P

This week's card is Mipedian Balladeer's Flute

This is an interesting battlegear that I am particularly fond of. It is like a Mugician's Lyre on caffeine! Unlike Mugician's Lyre, you get to begin the game with this face up. So you can put this on a creature that will never see combat so you can get an extra mugic counter. Put this on a Karabba, and you will get an extra 30 points of healing!

Now, a big turn off of this battlegear is that your opponent also gets a mugic counter. This actually isn't a very big weakness. Most decks plan to have just enough mugic couters to pay for their mugic, but after they cast their mugic, there isn't anything left for them to use any counters on. So they get a counter, but they don't have any realy use for it :P.

Friday, April 10, 2009

Card of the Weel: April 10th

This week, let's delve into the new set of Turn of the Tide! I think the Levitaar is a great new battlegear to start talking about the latest expansion of Chaotic.

First off, it is a free 50 speed, which isn't going to hurt your creature at all. Second, it's ability is amazing. Most decks will be dealing you damage with every attack, and in an average battle, you opponent will be making just about as many attacks as you will. So, more or less, you will be dealing an average of five damage with every attack, which ends up making it better than any of the other pieces of battlegear that only five you Element 5. This gives the same damage potential, but for all attacks that deal damage, and you get an additional 50 speed.

So what do you think of it?

Oh, and if anyone can tell me the difference between the picture in the collection for this card, and the real life card, I'll give that player a free Ultimate Warstance code. Remember to give me your Chaotic username with your reply :).

Trilling Refrain

The latest from the gauntlet is up :). I will be posting this week's card of the week later today, but until then, please discuss the latest column here :).

More rule changes

Here are some rule changes that I think most people will have very little trouble with. All are easy to understand and make a lot more sense than their previous counter parts :).

Just a friendly reminder that Turn of the Tide will be available this weekend at these events, before their official release next week. If you are able to go, please attend! These events will be amazing amounts of fun for everyone :).

1. San Diego, California
2. Brooklyn, New York
3. Oshawa, Ontario
4. Austin, Texas

Card of the Week-For Real this Time

Ok, well now that I have had my laughs, let's get on to the card of the week :).

This week's card is Arbeid

I love this guy. He is such a frustrating creature to be up against. He is like two Melody of Mirages in one creature! Plasma Arrows, Allmageddon, Supercooled Rain, all of these cards kneel before the powers of Arbeid. He can turn any of your opponent's large attacks into something as weak as a Spirit Gust attack.

Although he might not be much of a fighter, he is still going to be a great addition to your overworld team. He can save you upwards of 90 points of damage if used on the right attacks, which saves you more energy than a Karabba ever could. So think next time you decide not to put this uncommon overworlder into your team :).

Rate out of ten, say hello, or do whatever you want! Have fun with it people! :).

Card of the Week 4/1

From the Gauntlet-Aggro Decks

"Hey guys! Welcome back to From the Gauntlet, your one stop shop for all your chaotic strategy needs! This will be part one of a three part series where I am going to explore the three major deck types in the metagame. Those of you who are familiar with other card games might have heard these terms before, but that doesn’t make them any less relevant when it comes to Chaotic. Over the next three weeks, I will talk about aggro, combo, and control decks. This week will focus on one of the most popular of the deck types: the aggro deck...."

Card of the Week-March 25

The collection page on the main website doesn't seem to like me, so please enjoy this image courtesy of :).

This week's card is Aftermath Feint. Aftermath Feint has seen some growth in popularity lately, and for good reason. Who doesn't like getting a new hand? Who doesn't like to get rid of both Incinerases you have been keeping in your hand since the beginning of the match, or maybe you are just looking to turn your Outwit into a Plasmaarrow? Whatever the case, Aftermath Feint is a card you might consider in your deck.

We have all been in one of those matches that you know you can't win. In a battle, I don't think a Karraba will stand up against a Gronmor. Chances are, you should use this time to prepare for upcoming battles, and what better way then with this card?

Not to mention the beautiful synergy with Bladez. Bladez turns this into a 15 damage attack, with a killer ability if things turn against you in a fight.

Like always, rate out of 10 :).

From the Gauntlet

Welcome back for another installment of From the Gauntlet. After mulling over what to write about for a while (and trust me, it was a good while) I finally selected a topic. Today we’ll review some tips and tricks that you should use while playing Chaotic that can improve your game and chances of winning. As usual here in From the Gauntlet I will also present a deck list which exemplifies these tips...

Bungle in the Jungle, CCTW-March 11

Welcome back for yet another card of the week! :)

This week we are going to celebrate a favorite location of mine: The Heart of the Jungle. No one likes it when their awesome overworld healing lineup is stopped dead in its tracks by a Gan'trak army. This location gives you a turn of safety. Chances are, your creatures have at least one stat that is higher than all of your opponent's stats, so if your opponent would start lowering your stats, he is signing his own creature's death warrent.

But I'm not saying that only overworlders can benefit from this sort of card. Any player who wants to show those darned M'arrillians a thing or two might find some use for this card. The Kha'rall's intimidate will backfire on themselves, and Gan'trak will only end up stopping his own creatures.

So, rate this location out of ten like always :).

Friday, March 6, 2009

Look What I found!

I was just fooling around online, thinking about what organized play has in store this year, and that the current OP website hasn't been updated in a while. I sort have stumbled upon this link, check it out.

What do you think it is?

Chaotic Card of the Week-March 4

This week's card is Agrino Jaldar.

Agrino Jaldar is an interesting creature. What he lacks in elements, he gains in ability! Minions are becoming a bigger and bigger part of the game, even if they aren't being played with M'arrillians. Most aggressive overworld decks play Gronmor, and many underworld decks will use either Brimflame, or Bladez, or both. Agrino Jaldar's attacks all deal extra damage to them, and you can make up for his lack of elements with a shard, or a destructozooka.

His brianwashed side is just as fun. If you guys hadn't noticed, brainwashed danians seem to like to fight infected creatures, and Agrino Jaldar isn't an exception! On top of dealing more to those creatures, he gains an additional 5 energy for all of your minions, so you can be sure he won't go in as a wimp waiting for hive to activate :).

This week, I want you guys to tell me which version (brainwashed or pure) that you guys think is best.

New Website is only a few hours away

Well, the website is officially down, and the new website will be coming up soon. So to fill the void in our Chaotic lives, I figure we should have some discussion here! What do you guys think the new websites will be like? What features do you want to see be added in the new website? Draccoins? Other long awaited features? Let's discuss! :)

Saturday, February 28, 2009

Rally the Troops!

Thanks to an anonymous commenter on my last blog post, a new poll over at has people voting what their favorite card game is. Chaotic isn't doing as well is I think it should be doing, so let's show our support! The poll is on the main page on the left hand side a little less than halfway down. Let's see how well we can do! :)

Posting some card images for a player :)

A player asked be for some pictures of older cards from a website, so I thought I would help him out :).

Chaotic Card of the Week February 25

Thanks to Reihaku, I think it's time we talked about Fliandar. If you want to know what I'm talking about, look at his latest video on youetube :):

Courage: 85
Power: 45
Wisdom: 75
Speed: 35
Energy: 60

Now isn't this a fun little guy? 65 energy, 95 courage and 85 wisdom at his maximum, he is a pretty strong creature to begin with. Then you go into his awesome ability. Healing all of his damage can be a maximum of 60 energy if you use it right, and even more if you raise his energy with mugic, battlegear, or other card effects.

If you infect all of the creatures on the board (all 12 creatures) you will be able to use his ability 4 times. At 60 energy per heal, that is a total of healing 240 energy. Put him in the right deck, and you will be set for the entire match! :).

Card Discussion 2

Wow, this is going to come up a lot later than I thought, but life sure gets in the way some times!

Let's talk about Mivindal. I personally like him. He pretty much gives you an extra copy of any mandiblor in your army. On top of getting an extra fighter for free, you get an additional mugic counter to cast one of your mugics if you need it.

Mivindal is the creature version of Talisman of Mandiblor, but you don't have to wait for him to be engaged so you can use his ability. This makes him more versitile than a regular danian mugic caster with a Talisman of Mandiblor, but choosing between the two of them is a matter of preference.

Friday, February 20, 2009

Card Discussion 1

I'm sorry about missing two card of the weeks. Seeing as it isn't wednesday, I won't call this a Card of the Week, but it will be some card discussion. Let's get started, shall we?

First card I will like to talk about is Royal Mipedian Academy of Melee Arts.

This is a really nifty little card that I like to use. The control decks like danian infection should be a great home for a card like this. If you are up against a serious underworld burn deck, this card will stop your opponent from dealing damage to your creatures, and when the turn is over, you can put this card on your Queen, or other creatures you want to protect, and they will be safe from most of your opponent's big damage dealers :).

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

I can't tell you how crazy things are...

I'm sorry for the lack of updates. Here is the preview I promised:

Landgore is a one build point attack card. Stand aside Primal Smash!

New Previews from tcg player

Here are two new battlegear cards previewed on

For those of you who don't know what the new key term "Legendary" is yet, let me fill you in. This key word can be put on any card type: creatures, battlegear, locations, mugic, and attacks. You are only allowed one Legendary card in your deck. Think of it like super unique. If I have a legendary attack in my deck, I wouldn't be able to use a Scepter of the Infernal Parasite as well.

So enjoy the cards, comment on them if you want :). I will be posting my last card preview from Comic Con tomorrow.

Tuesday, February 10, 2009

And old picture, but pleanty of other pictures to entertain

Here is another picture of the new Intress, along with a bunch of the other pictures from comic con :):

Comic Con Pictures!

Hi guys! Sorry, things have been a little "chaotic" over here, and it's been really busy. But here are two new card pictures, as well as some other pictures from the Chaotic booth. I'll give you guys more updates tomorrow and the next day :). Today we have a Challor-like battlegear, and a new Agitos card :).
