Site Update: New Deck Filter + Tavern Brawl Deck Type

In preparations for Tavern Brawl, we've added a new deck type to the site called "Tavern Brawl". When making and sharing decks for Tavern Brawl, remember to use this deck type so others can find it easily!

With this we've also got a new deck filter which allows you to selectively include and exclude different deck types. Very useful if you don't want to see Tavern Brawl or PvE Adventure decks! You can check it out on our decks page under additional filters.

Please leave feedback on today's site update in this thread.

Site Update #2: New Deck Pages!

We've updated our deck pages to look much cleaner and display more information. You can check out an example of the new pages by heading on over to Donnie's Mech Warrior deck. If you'd like your social information to show up on your decks, you can edit this in your profile under social.

New Heroes Now Available

Three new heroes are now available in the shop for $9.99 USD each. We've got short in-game preview available for each hero below. You can also check out our video which shows off the new collection manager ui and buying the new heroes.
