Introducing Lixil’s Five Shards Tournament Series

“Lixil believes that if the necrotic were to coalesce their intelligence into a small cluster of immortal physical forms impervious to damage, decay, or destruction, it would be a more efficient use of resources than spreading themselves thin across a wider legion of diverse but frail remains of former human bodies. So, she fervently experiments with her own form, grafting various combinations of the “Five Shards” into her body in an attempt to find the flawless arrangement that will grant her immortality.” ~Hex Lore

As one of the defining leaders of the Necrotic introduced to us in Shards of Fate, Lixil, the Deathless Gem has occasionally popped up in the meta here and there, but she has mostly played a minor role in the shape of constructed—until recently, that is. The current necrotic decks are a tier 1 force that she has uniquely been carving with her ability to acquire any of the five shards you may need and help her achieve her quest for immortality. With the help of Hex Entertainment, players can now push Lixil one step closer on her quest.
