This week's video is a tutorial video, which is probably overdue for a Redemption YouTube channel that plays a game in most of the videos. So far my videos have been mostly geared towards people who already know how to play and want to see different deck builds and games, but I figured it'd be good to have more of an "Intro to Redemption" video as well to share with people who are new to the game and want to check it out.

So, for anyone who is relatively new, I hope the video is helpful for you, and for all the experienced players out there, you can skip watching this one BUT only if you share the video with someone else who's newer or who you want to introduce to the game.  ;) You could also just watch it too though so you know what the person you recommend it too will learn, but the intro is pretty short and then it's just a walkthrough of an I/J deck game.

In the near future I'm hoping to release a "Part 2" that uses the card types that the starter decks don't have and a few more complex abilities (probably using YTG Contenders), but in the meantime, here's the tutorial!

Ha, glad to hear it! That's sorta the same feedback I was getting from a few friends of mine who play other games so they wanted to check it out but didn't get far cuz it takes awhile to get used to the cards and all the interactions, which is why I figured a tutorial video would be good.

That was well done. I was able to follow along and understood everything. Iíve read the 4th ed rules, and gone to the REG a few times to answer questions as I play. (To give you an idea of where Iím at in understanding the game) Iíve played out a couple games with the I/J decks and I think I am getting the hang of it. Seeing them play out definitely helped. The way abilities in this game work are quite different from what Iím used to, so itís almost like learning a new language. Iím looking forward to the next video because I still am not very clear on how other things like sites and artifacts work, and there is not much about them in the 4th ed rules, and the REG entry leaves me wondering if Iím missing something somewhere 😂

Thanks again! If you ever have any questions about YouTube, I work with it daily on a pretty large channel so I probably have a reasonable answer

Glad you liked it! Hopefully the follow-up will be done either this week or next.

What's the YouTube channel called? I'll definitely ask if I have any questions, but I'm certainly also open to suggestions!

Can't wait. I subbed, so I'll be on the lookout for it :D

As for my channel, its a company that I work for, not a personal channel, so I don't disclose the exact channel for social media policy reasons :D

It's been a bit of a busy week, so this week's video is out a little late, but it's still a good one. I decided to try out MasterQ's "Musical HAG" deck against BradG. Unfortunately a weird Lackey glitch ended the game a little early, but it's still some good gameplay and I figured it shouldn't go to waste, so check it out here!

I did end up watching most of this, and though it was very clear to me you were unfamiliar with how things clicked initially, you had a far better grasp by the end of the game. That said, I think many people can testify that I'm a terrible person to have watch over your shoulder if you want to play the game your own way; I tend to want to play rather than watch. ::) But it's always interesting to see how someone else plays your deck. Especially if you've never played it yourself. :P

I would for sure make changes to that deck now. But I do think it's a solid first draft.

Keep playing, my man! 8)
If you were to go on a trip... where would you like to go?

Haha, yeah, I definitely should've played a practice game with it ahead of time or at least done some test draws, but it was sort of a spur of the moment thing where I didn't know what deck to play and had wanted to try yours out. I don't think I quite did it justice, but fortunately the deck is quite forgiving. :P Hopefully we can get some tournaments going again up here soon and do some drafting.  :D

Yep! It's been a fairly busy week for me though so unfortunately it won't be uploaded until tomorrow, but it will be a "Part 2" to last week's tutorial video that covers the other card types that aren't in the starter decks.

As promised, the Part 2 tutorial is now uploaded here so go ahead and check that out. I was hoping to get it posted earlier today but it literally took 12 hours to upload to YouTube for some reason, so here we are. For some reason there are a few extra seconds at the beginning of the video, so just consider that some "behind the scenes" footage or blame my lousy editor. ::)

That was great! One question that never came up in the game:

With the site that can hold enhancements (forget the name atm)
When you put an enhancement in the site, would it go in face up or face down?

I assume you mean Musician's Chambers, which is actually a Fortress. Enhancements it holds are placed face up. The only time you play a card face down is if another card says so specifically, or you're putting down an Artifact.

For this week's video, I tried out something new that I've seen some YouTubers/streamers do for other games and thought could be worth a shot. Instead of playing a game, I go in-depth into a decklist sent to me by demonhunter85 and give some feedback and suggestions. The goal is to give a detailed thought process behind different choices for cards in the deck and what I personally think would fit best, which isn't always the absolute best of course, but hopefully it's helpful for the deck builder and also for anyone interested in using a similar theme. The deck for this video in particular is a Flood/Animals deck (hurray thematic points) and I definitely enjoyed testing it out and finding a few things I would do differently. So check out RWJ's very first Deck Check.

Like I said, I enjoyed doing it, and it works well since I haven't been able to devote as much time to building fresh decks lately, but the goal of the channel is to promote the game and create enjoyable content for you guys, so please do let me know if you like this type of video, or if you'd rather just see gameplay, or if there's something else you'd like to see more of. I'm guessing if non-gameplay videos like this were shorter then that might be easier to enjoy, so let me know if you like the length as well or if going a little faster/less in-depth would be better. If you do like this though, feel free to send me a decklist (here or Discord) and hopefully I'll be able to get to it.

Brand new, female theme Contender Deck is now available and this week's video shows ya how to use it (or at least a way to use it... I could probably use a little practice with it still), but either way, it was a really fun game against Derek Tirado's blue/pale green Contender Deck so check it out here!

This week we got a neat lil combo deck that was fun to build and exciting to play, especially since there haven't been a whole lot of combos lately that didn't get nerfed right away because they were silly and broken. Many thanks to BradG for getting the game in with me. I didn't warn him at all ahead of time about the deck since it works best with the element of surprise, so check out the video here to see if I was able to pull it off!

Deck list is available here

New deck and a game to go with it for this week on Redemption with Jayden. I wanted to try out the new Mary with the game's biggest Hero, Legion of Angels, so the idea is to protect your big dudes and not have to do much during your rescues. Tried the deck out against BradG, so go ahead and check that out here through Land of Redemption!

Thanks for all of these videos. It can be a little tough to understand the intricacies of strategy and gameplay without playing a ton of games, but these videos are helping me think 4th dimensionally, at Dr. Emmitt Brown from Back to the Future would say.

Haha, glad to hear it! Hopefully we can play again sometime soon. Think you'll be able to make the December online tournament?

Hope y'all had a great Thanksgiving! I decided to push this week's video back a day because of it, but round 1 from the online tournament last weekend is now uploaded and you can check out the decklist and video here! Not sure if I'll be able to get rounds 2 and 3 done for tomorrow and the following day as I was hoping, but keep an eye out for those throughout the next week or so as I get them finished up!
