Eternal: Cold HuntOctober 22, 2021
“Whatever Kosul’s future holds, I swear I will protect it…until the world goes dark.” – Svetya, Orene of Kosul
Deep in the frozen northern mountains, Svetya searches for the mad mage who orchestrated the coup that destroyed her family.
She will need to act quickly if she’s to capture her prey while his plans may just be coming to fruition. Can she stay true to her convictions when she finds him?
At the border of Kosul, Vara journeys toward the capital to request aid from the Orene. Precious time is already lost if the Waystones have been tampered with.
The two rulers must rely on some unlikely allies to root out their quarry. Is it too late to stop the mad mage’s meddling? Is he after the Waystones or something more?
Svetya’s hunt for justice begins on Thursday, November 11 when Cold Hunt brings over 200 new cards to Eternal®!
Here’s a first look at what lies ahead for the Orene of Kosul:
You may notice that stylish new card frame around your favorite Orene…Cold Hunt introduces new Hero frames that make the key personalities of Eternal easily identifiable at-a-glance. We’ll have more to say about how Heroes are stealing the spotlight in Cold Hunt in an upcoming article.

Draft Rewards Update!
Draft has always been one of the best and most efficient ways to grow your Eternal collection, and for a limited time with the release of Cold Hunt we’re turning that up to (set) 12 with a new reward structure that’s giving out a dragon’s hoard worth of gold:
With this update, hitting 5 wins in Draft provides enough gold to Draft again, and 7 wins gets you a guaranteed Legendary card!
The new rewards offer unprecedented access to the infinite strategy of Eternal Drafting, and the chance to pay your victories forward into an endless strategic challenge. Time to crack some packs!
This draft update is a significant and exciting change to the economy, and it is motivated in part by the feedback we’ve received from our passionate community. With changes of this magnitude, it is not possible to predict all of the ramifications ahead of time. It is possible we are going to want to continue to iterate on the draft rewards, and also possible we are going to want to keep them as-is for the foreseeable future. We will be monitoring both queue and economy health in the coming weeks during the Cold Hunt Draft Preview.
Cold Hunt Draft Preview!
On Thursday, November 4, a special preview of new set will be shaking up Draft! Stay on target:
A curated pool of 60+ new commons and uncommons from Cold Hunt will appear in Eternal Draft Packs, and will be immediately legal for Throne and Expedition play. As always, you keep any cards you draft, so the Draft Preview is a great way to grab some new toys before the new set’s release!
Heroic Invocation Preview Event!
On Friday, November 5, we’ll be counting down to the release of Cold Hunt with a special constructed preview event that showcases new Hero cards from the upcoming set! See who’s lurking in the sewers of Argenport:
The Heroic Invocation Preview Event will run from Friday, November 5 until the release of Cold Hunt the following week. Bring a two-faction Throne deck, and you’ll get to play with one of 10 new Hero cards while you win Cold Hunt packs!
The Expedition Vault
With the release of Cold Hunt, we’re welcoming new and returning players with a variety of free cards from previous sets to help get them caught up and ready to get into the action of Expedition play.
The Expedition Vault gives every Eternal player a whole bunch of free staples to help them explore decks in the Expedition format. When a card enters the Expedition Vault, it will remain Expedition-legal for a minimum of one year, giving players confidence to build and refine their favorite decks.
And, best of all, every card in the Expedition Vault is completely free! Every account will have access to every Expedition Vault card (that cannot be dusted for Shiftstone), so you’ll have plenty of core pieces to use in a variety of decks.
We’ll have more to say about the contents of the Expedition Vault as we get closer to the release of Cold Hunt as part of our ongoing commitment to keep Eternal as generous and accessible as we can.
Influence can’t keep you warm on a cold night…but basking in the glow of a pipin’ hot spoiler sure can!
