Need help understanding the game? Faeria Coaching can help!

Faeria Coaching

Whilst we have a great tutorial and our Community is creating awesome guides, there is no substitute for having somebody talk you through the game in person and coach you on how to play better.

J0k3se, now one of our moderators, has set up a coaching program which has helped a fair number of people massively, and created some excellent videos too, so we at Abrakam would like to help with this too.

Here’s how it works:

The program will work in two week cycles. At the start of each cycle the latest group of students will each be paired with a coach, who will agree a day and time that they can both meet up for the session. Each session would be at least 2 hours in total (either 2 one hour sessions or 1 two hour session). The sessions would generally consist of the student playing either games against the AI or in Battle Mode, whichever they choose, and would cover one or more of the following aspects of Faeria:

  • Deck idea/building
  • Land placement
  • When to use what on the action-wheel
  • When to trade/clear
  • Flexibility/Mulligan

After the session, each student will have ‘Graduated’ and will receive a free booster pack. Ideally, the session would either be recorded or streamed so that others can learn from the same advice. If you’d rather not be recorded/streamed, then make sure to let the Mentor know.


If you would like to apply as a student then please include the following details in your reply to this post:

In-Game Name:

Faeria Experience: (just a sentence or two about what you have done in Faeria so far. When did you join etc.)

Time Zone:

Regular Online Hours: (In GMT preferably to make their math easy)

What do you hope to get out of the coaching program?: (They’ll try to match your specific interest with the skills of the coach. If you say you want to become a better deck builder, they’ll try to pair you with someone who is known for deck building)

Current Deck: (They’ll try and match you with a coach who is known for what you are playing right now)


J0k3se is currently the Manager of the Coaching Program, and you can see his work here:

The other two, current, coaches are:

If you would like to apply as a Coach then please include the following details in your reply to this post:

In-game Name:

Regular online hours: (Preferably in GMT)

Time Zone: (So they can match you with students in the same time zone)

Speciality: (Do you prefer Red, Green, Deck Building, Pandora, etc. This is purely so they can better match mentors and students)

Rating: (This is just to roughly show your level of skill. they’d prefer users with god ranking)

References: (This is only important if you have a low rating/are unranked. It’s just so I can ask around a bit and ensure you would be a quality coach)

Faeria Background:

A couple sentences about why you would make a good mentor: (why did you apply? What can you offer the program?)

Thank you for reading this and, hopefully, with enough students they can organise a graduate tournament to help students learn how to compete too.

I did some coaching on my own in a few CCGs and enjoyed it (even once in Faeria with a french player). I would never refuse when they asked for it, but never actually thought of proposing it myself.

A couple sentences about why you would make a good mentor: I always enjoy helping newer players in Faeria as I know it can be challenging just starting out plus it helps the game if new players feel there’s a way they can improve faster. I am currently helping out a couple of new players and I offer coaching on the basics of the game, and mainly the strategy involved.

In-Game Name: infowars

Faeria Experience: F2P joined some time ago way before it went free for 24 hours on steam. Started somewhat casually, was surprised to find I liked the genre was this is my first card game of the sort. Clocked +59 hours. Didn’t do that much competitive in that time tho but am starting to do so.

Time Zone: UTC+1

Regular Online Hours: Can accommodate as necessary

What do you hope to get out of the coaching program?: I’m used to strat games however this is my first card game so I struggle with some of the lingo of the genre, types of decks, things like archetypes and tempo (been taking notes and trying to make a list). Also with knowing what’s needed to put together a good working deck but for a start I’d need to know what each kind consists of. Would also like to become more comfortable or get a better understanding on how to play with red and yellow colours. Want to be more confident regarding land placement. Want to start being more competitive. Would really like to learn put together, with what I have a available decks like ytemp, yrush, rCtrl and rrush.

Current Deck: Both GB & GR Ctrl which I feel somewhat familiar with. Got some other patched together budget red, BY, YB, Ctrl GY. A half made budget yrush. Also tried to replicate blad’s BY events.

I would like to apply as a Coach :).

Application Details

In-game Name: Tsucchi

Regular online hours: 10.00 - 18.00 GMT

Time Zone: GMT+8

Specialty: Mainly control decks. To be specific, yellow and red control. I do well with red rush as well but I tend to find rush decks slightly unreliable, especially when the opponent has the right answers to your offence. I have never played wish / apex due to not having the right cards and enough memoria for crafting.

Rating: God rank last season at around #60. Currently god rank #21 with MMR hovering just slightly below 1700.

References: None.

Faeria Background: I’ve played Faeria since the first monthly tournament and was inspired by Lifecoach with his Mono Green deck. Currently, I have over 300 hours spent on Faeria and have participated in several PlayFaeria weekly tournaments. My best tournament finished in 3rd place during the 6th PlayFaeria tournament.

A couple sentences about why you would make a good mentor: During this whole time of playing Faeria, I was playing alone and learnt everything from scratch. However, I started to stream Faeria two weeks ago and by doing so I have developed the capability of explaining technical aspects of the game. I really enjoy seeing the Faeria community grow as I believe this game has huge potential in the CCG market, and I have good intentions for helping newer players to the game. I understand that many new players may be overwhelmed by the price of the full card collection. As a F2P player, I still haven’t collected all the sufficient cards to play all the competitive decks, but I have still reached God Rank, so I believe I can give advice to players who intend on playing the game as a F2P player.

Extra Information: I speak english and cantonese. So if there are any Chinese / Hong Kong players who would like to have coaching, I can, hopefully, communicate in their language with them during the coaching session.

This may or may not be relevant, but I have had the experience to teach seminar classes at my University as a teaching assistant.

Is this still going? What a cool idea!

In-Game Name: tudybeck

Faeria Experience: Got the game around 2 weeks now and fell in love with it. I made a 7-win streak in Pandorra so far. In Battle I just reached 11.

Time Zone: CEST

Regular Online Hours: 8 CEST / 7 GMT usually works.

What do you hope to get out of the coaching program?: Climbing the ladder was going well so far. Now, however games are rather 50/50. Would love to have someone watch over my shoulder to spot the mistakes I make. I read and watched the material, which is out there. So, I would state I have the basics covered, but there is for sure many more stuff I can learn. Particularly Deck-Building would interest me, as I currently play on one deck almost entirely. As the eventual goal is to play in the weekend-tournaments I would love to get some help in building two further decks.

Current Deck: Some homebrewn Blue-Control(-lish) Deck. Basically uses combat-tricks to win over the sides and place the Luduans there.
