The Primal Faction

Primal is one of the five Factions in the Eternal card game. In many ways it's the opposite of Fire with an ice theme running through many of the cards (Permafrost, Flash Freeze, Yeti Snowslinger etc).

Primal is symbolised by a claw print on a blue background.

Primal Deck Strategy

Primal concentrates on board control and spells. For offence it has a large number of units with Flying, often protected with Aegis. So the basic strategy is to keep the opponent out of the fight whilst chipping away with relatively cheap fighting units that are difficult to block and kill.

Many of Primal's control spells involve stunning enemy units. Whereas stun normally only lasts one turn, this faction has cards such as Permafrost and Ice Sprite which can keep a unit frozen until the enemy deals with the source. Meanwhile Crystallize is an excellent mass stun spell.

In terms of direct damage, Primal has storm based spells such as Lightning Storm and Channel The Tempest. Plus the deeply annoying Polymorph.

For all its strengths I rarely see Primal played as the main faction in a deck, usually it acts as support for one of the others.

Legendary Primal Cards

As of card set one there are six pure Primal legendaries plus another five which have shared allegiance with Time and five which have shared allegiance with Shadow. Here's the card list:
