Search the history of over billion web pages on the Internet. The bulwarks of reality falter and fail, and sinister gods of primeval malice loom, ready to consume the earth.

In the end, only one unholy mastermind hecatomv stand triumphant amid the falling ashes of existence. They might be crazed servants of insane gods, masters of forbidden science, or sorcerers of unspeakable knowledge. What they have in common is their goal— to end the world. To wage their battle hecqtomb each other, endbringers merge natural and unnatural creatures into mighty hybrids called abominations, which reap souls for their masters.

Endbringers also use their knowledge and power to cast unholy spells, activate arcane relics, and even summon evil gods. The endbringer who amasses enough souls first wins— and the whole world loses. Object of the Game Gain 20 souls or more to destroy the world and win the game. Play of the Game Two or more players play using their own decks and a number of soul counters. You can also use fates, relics, and unholy gods to defeat your enemies.

Players gain a soul on each of their hecaromb, so the end of the world is inevitable. Hecatomv only question is which player will end it. Collector Number and strength: Fate, relic, and god cards each have one text box. A hecatlmb card has two: Sometimes the text box contains flavor text.

It just reminds you of how effects work. The four card types are minion, fate, relic, and god. Minion and fate cards also have subtypes. Some effects apply only to cards that have certain subtypes. Combat minions and combat fates are cards you can play during combat. Each card has a cost— the number of mana cards you need to tap to play it. Each card belongs to one of four dooms: Triggers are triangular, colored areas in four of the corners around the name and art of a minion card.

Triggers activate conditional abilities.

The expansion symbol is a way to identify which set or expansion a card is from. The expansion symbol for the base set is I. There are three rarities: The Four Dooms The dooms are the fundamental forces of evil. Every sort of evil in the world is some expression or combination of these dooms. Each doom has its own style and minions.


Corruption Corruption is the power of madness, deformity, and knowledge not meant for mortals to know.

Hecatomb (card game)

Corruption minions include mutants and ancient, evil Mesoamerican entities called aztecals. Deceit Deceit is the power of lies, trickery, and shadow. Its minions include shapeshifters, ru,es, and haunted objects called animates. The primary enemy of deceit is destruction.

A mana card is a hecatlmb of any type in the mana zone. An abomination is a minion or stack of minions in play. Minions You play a minion rulss as a new abomination or on an existing abomination.

Minions stay in play until destroyed. Combat minions are minions you can play during combat, though you can play them outside of combat as normal minions, too.

Fates Fates include invocations, curses, tactics, and mishaps— either something an endbringer does or something that just happens. When you play a fate, its effect happens, and then it goes to your graveyard. Combat fates are the only fates you can play during combat, though you can play them outside of combat, too. Relics Relics are magical or technological devices that can help you or hurt your enemies. When you play one, it stays in play and affects the game until destroyed.
