Patch 0.9.24, also known as the Swap Update, is the last patch before Homecoming and launched on May 22nd, 2018. Its main focus was on balance changes, mostly revolving around the Swap mechanic.

Description[edit | edit source]

With this update, our main focus was to change cards with the Create ability, as well as to adjust the Swap mechanic.

The following cards will have increased value for milling for 3 days following the release of the patch – until Friday, May 25th, 12 PM CEST (noon):
