Exodus News, Issue #015 -- September Newsletter 2016
Hello again all Exodus fans and readers! We've had a great last month here at Existence Games and hope all of you are doing well too! There's an exciting announcement for you in this newsletter (several great announcements actually), but first let's cover a little news!
If you've been following our social media, then you've definitely heard from us about our recent trip to GenCon. This was an absolutely great convention, and in case you didn't see our recent posts, here's a few highlights below:
While at the show, Existence Games also had an awesome interview with Gaming With Scott! Click the banner below to listen and hear some great insight from one of the game creators.
We'll soon be joining TalkingClockwise for another podcast session later this month! Stay tuned!
Speaking of how much we love our players, one of us recently wrote a message for all of you.
I've had such an unbelievably amazing time over our last few conventions, getting to know some of our players through Exodus demos and events. The people we meet and introduce our game to are so genuinely friendly and ready to have fun, and it's a whirlwind of excitement to see and be a part of. For Jake and I, it makes all the work we do so worthwhile just to share some good smiles and a few laughs through our game.
We often hear feedback from players telling us how much fun they've had with Exodus and thanking us for making a great product, and it's always been our honor to be able to deliver that bit of joy. I just want to say though that the amount of pure happiness and indescribable excitement that Jake and I personally get when we hang out with all of you awesome players is so beyond words, we can hardly keep our smiles in, and we're just utterly thankful.
To every player of Exodus, online viewer, and people who just tried the game out
or stopped by our booth at a convention: you guys give us just as much joy and make us so ecstatic to keep bringing you new Exodus releases and push forward in our business. You're more to us than just random people who buy our products and take the game off to their corner of the world, but treasured players, followers, and friends who make a difference in our game and return your contagious excitement back to us. I'm just so thankful to see such a great community for Exodus The Trading Card Game, and it's awesome how you guys support each other at events while still having competitive fun! It's beyond what we could've hoped for for our game, and I hope all of you know how ridiculously incredible you are.
So once again, this goes out to all of you reading this, thank you for the great support and love you give to us and each other! You're the reason we have an epic playerbase that's continuing to grow. Thanks from the bottom of both our hearts, and we hope
you'll continue to keep those bright sparks lit and keep sharing the game with others! You've certainly fanned our flames of happiness!
Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Announcing the official featured card of September! In this column we feature a new Exodus card every month.
The September card spotlight goes to Uncommon Alliance! This symmetry is the product of an occurrence that no Drifter had ever expected to occur on Eeventide—an alliance between the Dragon and Angel guilds. Despite the long-lasting rivalry between these two creature types, the rising Order Guild has been relentless in their onslaught, particularly towards the Skyborn (Angel) guild. Skyborn’s guild leader, Skyriss Delcastle, finally decided that desperate times called for desperate measures, and came to Hal Sinogaurd, leader of Dragonis, with an offer. Maybe this alliance is only temporary, but amidst the guilds’ new bond, they forged a beauteous and powerful new creature that would fight for Dragons and Angels alike, known as Drangel.
This symmetry card’s effect reads: If you control at least 1 Uncommon Dragon and 1 Uncommon Angel on the field, put a card from your graveyard on top of your Main Deck.
This card is
huge support for Uncommon Rarity decks! With this card you can literally take any card from your graveyard, including Ability creatures, powerful symmetry cards, or anything else you want, and put it back on the top of your deck to draw almost immediately! You can increase your odds even more by putting lots of Uncommon creatures of these types in your deck. It also means you don’t have to wait for a deck recycle to get the card you’re looking for! Since Dragons and Angels are two of the main creature types in Exodus (and the first), you can be sure there’s going to be more options for this card with future releases, because there will always be new Uncommon Dragons and Angels. There are already a lot of options that you can do with this symmetry, so have fun exploring combos! (You could even combo this card with itself if you’re playing 2 copies of it, and use one of them to put the other on top of your Main Deck if it’s stuck in your graveyard!)
To get this promo card, attend a free Exodus tournament at your local game store, or find another player who may be willing to trade! You also have a chance to win 2 copies of this card by entering the Exodus poster contest (see below).
Ask your preferred game store to run Exodus tournaments if they’re not already; you don’t want to miss out on this promo—or any future promo cards for that matter!
Don't forget about the Exodus TCG poster contest! If you find one of these at a game store or convention, take a picture in front of it and post it to Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #ExodusTCG. You'll be entered into a drawing to win a playset of all our new Summer promo cards! This is a really great opportunity to get some new cards that not many people have yet.
Stop by the Exodus Online Store to pick up some decks, boosters, or accessories. We have great package deals on products that earn you a discount along with additional promo cards that you can only get from us!
Be sure to like the game on our Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube Channel, and stay up to date with all that's going on with Exodus The Trading Card Game and Existence Games!
We hope you all have a fantastic rest of your week, and don't forget to share some good old fashioned tabletop game-time with someone today! After all, it only takes 5-10 minutes for a game of Exodus!
