After centuries of uneasy peace, the land of Rathe balances on the brink of war once again. Savage beasts emerge from the primordial jungle, clashing with noble warriors in increasingly violent skirmishes. A forgotten realm finds its ancient barriers eroding, exposing it to the greed of others, while a mystical land is faced with the history it once tried to bury, threatening to expose the secrets of their ancestors.
Welcome to Rathe introduces four heroes; Bravo, Showstopper, a flamboyant Guardian. Dorinthea Ironsong, a virtuous Warrior. Katsu, the Wanderer, a Ninja on a journey to discover himself and, Rhinar, Reckless Rampage, an apex predator Brute. Welcome to Rathe contains 226 cards with each booster pack containing 16 cards, including one premium foil, one rare, and one other either rare, super rare, or majestic.
In addition to the four iconic heroes, Welcome to Rathe features some of the most sought after and powerful cards in the game such as Enlightened Strike, Tome of Fyendal, and the fabled Heart of Fyendal. Legendary equipment is also waiting to be discovered including Mask of Momentum, Scabskin Leathers, Braveforge Bracers, Tectonic Plating, and Fyendal’s Spring Tunic. Each of the four heroes’ signature Specialization cards such as Crippling Crush, Lord of Wind, Steelblade Supremacy, and Alpha Rampage highlight the heroes’ style and character.
The Classic Constructed format is the quintessential Flesh and Blood experience. Players choose a hero, then construct an 80-card deck made up of powerful signature moves, class, and generic cards, then compete against each other in fast-paced, 1v1 combat. Classic Constructed is full-powered Flesh and Blood where the adult heroes take center stage. A typical game of Classic Constructed is a battle of endurance, lasting 30-50 minutes.
