Warhammer Age of Sigmar Champions is a Trading Card Game (TCG) from Playfusion, available in both physical and digital versions. Warhammer Age of Sigmar Champions released in August 2018 and will soon release it's second expansion, Savagery. Age of Sigmar Champions recently got a release on Steam it will be available on Nintendo Switch later this month.
Savagery is set in the Realm of Ghur and brings three new forces into the fray. The Gloomspire Gitz, Sylvaneth and Maggotkin of Nurgle will all have cards representing their forces in the Savagery expansion.
I've been playing AoS Champions from the start and you can find links to our coverage of the game at the end of this article. As a known fan of the Destruction Grand Alliance, we've been given an exclusive Savagery reveal for a new Destruction Blessing and a great new neutral tactics card.
Jaws of Destruction is a Destruction Blessing. It adds 1 to the support of units in the three highlighted rows. This makes three-quarters of your board 33% more effective for the rest of the game if you're playing with a lot of stacking units. This makes cards like Orruk Scrappers deal 6 damage across their 4 corners without any other support cards. When combined with the other blessing Waaagh! Then Waaagh! again, it can give some real card efficiency to your deck.
Destruction already have some incredible blessings, so it will be interesting to see if this finds a regular spot in the meta decks.
Battle Tactics is a great neutral tactics card. It lets your shuffle 0, 1 or 2 cards from your hand into your deck and then redraw the amount shuffled in, plus 1. This lets you cycle back into your deck cards that you might not need right away, in the hope of drawing cards that might. Shuffling in 0 cards to draw 1 at the cost of the card isn't hugely efficient, but can speed up drawing through your deck. In an aggressive deck, this can help drawing into the cards you need. The drawing the extra card does mean that the card pays for itself and won't be wasted in the deck, but won't find much use in slower decks.
We caught up with Jade, the Community Manager for Warhammer Age of Sigmar Champions. She had this to say about the new set:
Savagery brings in Nurgle, which is something our community have been really happy about. Being a Warhammer fan myself it's awesome to see new characters being introduced into our game. I love the background narrative to this set. With the addition of Ghur in Realm Spells, this set has unique styles of play which is really entertaining to watch digitally and physically!
We've been covering Warhammer Age of Sigmar Champions since it's release, starting with a booster box opening and game introduction, then a review of the Limited Edition Founders Pack and more recently with a deck discussion about Destruction's Aggro Orruks. We also exclusively revealed two card from the first expansion, Onslaught and looked in detail at an Onslaught deck.
We're really looking forward to Savagery, and the new deck options it will bring for Warhammer Age of Sigmar Champions. We'll be covering Savagery as it releases.
