Episode 34 - Hex Ed: Harrowdeep Rivals Review

In this episode, we continue (and wrap up for now!) our dive into the Rivals format. We catch up with Tres (so good to have him back on the show!) and his return to Underworlds via Rivals. Then we give an overview of each of the Harrowdeep Warbands released so far & the Illusory Might deck in the Rivals format (written up as a blog on https://blog.battle-mallet.com/2022/01/harrowdeep-warbands-rivals-review.html). For each Warband, we briefly cover the fighters, key Objective and Power Cards, the type of boards you'd want to use, and their playstyle. We also cover some tips on how to tackle each Warband and rate them on a Bronze/Silver/Gold scale for new players.
