A Matter of Existence

All of existence is made up of five pieces, known as the Eternals. The five Eternals are Body, Life, Mind, Spirit, and Death. Most creature and spell cards have a stronger affinity towards one Eternal than they do towards the others. Typically the 'flavor' of a card's abilities is dependent on the Eternal that the card has the strongest affinity towards.

If you're interested in choosing the play style that best suits you, you should become familiar with the typical traits of each of the Eternals. But where could you possibly get this kind of information? Well fear not! Everything you need to know about the Eternals can be found below!

Body Eternal

The Body Eternal is the piece of existence that defines shape and form; it is at its core geometry. This Eternal primarily specializes with cards that are aggressive in nature. A Creature with an affinity towards the Body Eternal will often be a more powerful attacker than a creature that has an affinity towards one of the other four Eternals. Spells with an affinity towards the Body Eternal typically go BOOM! These are typically spells that have high direct damage output; great for melting faces of opposing Avatars and creatures.

Life Eternal

The Life Eternal is the piece of existence that defines the beginning of existence. This Eternal primarily focuses on cards that are more resilient. A creature with an affinity towards the Life Eternal will often have higher defensive statistics than a creature that has an affinity towards another Eternal. Spells with an affinity towards the Life Eternal typically focus on toughness above all else. These are typically spells that augment the defensive traits of your creatures.

Mind Eternal

The Mind Eternal is the piece of existence that defines thought and consciousness. This Eternal primarily focuses on cards that excel at manipulation. A creature with an affinity towards the Mind Eternal will often have lower base statistics than a creature with an affinity towards another Eternal but will compensate with more powerful abilities. Spells with an affinity towards the mind Eternal function in a similar way as the creatures. These spells typically influence board state and will always keep your opponents guessing as to whether you have a trick up your sleeve.

Spirit Eternal

The Spirit Eternal is the piece of existence that defines emotion. This Eternal primarily focuses on cards that excel in passive strength. A creature with an affinity towards the Spirit Eternal will often grow in strength as the number of creatures in play increases or as a player's threshold towards the Spirit Eternal increases. Spells with an affinity towards the Spirit Eternal often protect your creatures and Avatar by preventing your opponent's creatures from attacking or dealing damage.

Death Eternal

The Death Eternal is the piece of existence that defines the end. This Eternal focuses on cards that are lethal in nature. A creature with an affinity towards the Death Eternal will often have lower base statistics than a creature with an affinity towards another Eternal, but will often be able to cope with creatures of much higher rank due to the deadly abilities at their disposal. Spells with an affinity towards the Death Eternal specialize at bringing pain, agony, and ultimately Death to your opponent's creatures.
