Token-Generating Cards
« on: April 23, 2016, 09:10:07 AM »
How to Obtain Infinite Bordered Cards, and their Strategy
Infinite Bordered cards (which sport a fancy blue border) are a special soulbound premium variant designed to showcase competitive achievements. They can be earned randomly through Rift Runs if you do prodigiously well, or through Ranked (currently must be in top 10 to begin earning IB rewards), or through regular tournaments (rewards begin at 3rd place). When you earn them through ranked or a tournament, you will be asked what cards you want and they will be credited to your account. This allows you some choice in card selection, unlike the random Rift rewards.

When it comes to selecting IB cards, there are two main objectives for most players: firstly, to obtain cards that are popular in command zones, such as Kali or Gao Han. Secondly, players tend to focus on token-generating cards--bonus if they're also popular commanders, like Rita or one of the Splitters. Commanders are popular because you're guaranteed to get them, meaning that you can definitely show off your accomplishments. Token generators are popular because premium generators make premium tokens, so there's more "shiny" to go around.

Much like Gold and Platinum borders, Infinite borders look better on some factions than on others. They go particularly well with the DoD, for instance. You can look up a list of IB cards from each faction and judge for yourself, but that may be a consideration. Most importantly, seek out the premiums that you know you'll use.

Note: There is some debate over transform cards as opposed to traditional token-generating cards. I don't have the answer for all and it's the sort of thing that needs to be handled on a case-by-case basis. As such, they are not listed here.

Stampede is an Epic. I only listed cards that were Rare and below when I first compiled the list.

There are a few cards in the list missing that come to my mind. If Demonic Reflection gives you a premium copy, then Apparition should aswell. And if Descension should turn out to give you a premium, then it should work for Demonize, too.

Unfortunatly I have neither of them as premiums, so I can't test if either of them works or not.

I think transforms work based in the card it is transforming. My shiny taiga got transformed into a shiny demon
