Pdmd’s Soul Trapping Guide

Hi guys, Pdmd28 back again on Between the Lanes, this time with my personal “Dusting” or Soul Trapping Guide! In this article, I will give you all my opinion on cards that are safe to soul trap, as a free-to-play player myself who has tried to make the most of his cards and soul gems. This article is to help you know cards that are okay to dust, but I don’t advise aggressively dusting all your cards just to make one or two legendaries.

I will classify cards in twp different types:

  1. Cards that are unplayable in top-tier or mid-tier decks witch means that they are not good enough to even consider playing,
  2. Cards that are okay to use as replacement for cards in top-tier decks or even good enough to be played in mid-tier decks. These cards are cards that can be seen in budget decks or as replacement for cards that you are missing for middle or top tier decks.

That’s all from me! Hopefully I helped you in understanding which cards you can dust. Once again, I don’t advise you to hard dust cards for the sake of making one deck; take it slow and do some arenas, but if you are in need of a bit of dust for that sweet Emeric or Ayrenn you can use this as a guide to help you get those last gems.

  1. at lvl 15 i had dusted all card just to make tier 1 deck. that was absolutely right decision. now i lvl up and farm much more faster


    • I never advice people to fully dust for example blue that limits your opions to play other decks, fuly dust for 1 deck works for some people but not for all and bear in mind i dont say you have to 100% follow what i say if you done something diferent and its working for you nice im glad for you xD

    Article is blasphemy. Has Trebuchet as unplayable. I have a set of premiums and win like half my games in legends with them !praise


  3. useful article, but I’d consider waiting until we see all the expansion cards to dust anything. never know what archetypes will be playable with new cards
