We fully embraced the system of The Stack (that we kindly borrowed from Magic: the Gathering).
It allows us to make simple but deep gameplay, recalling real-time interactions. See how it works in practice.
Choose 7 cards per hero, and your deck will form as you draft your heroes. This means dynamic deckbuilding is inherent in Skytear, even without changing your prepared cards!
In this video I demonstrate how it works and the options it gives for customizing heroes to your playstyle.
Once you know the basics, you can follow these actual matches.
