How does it work?
When you click on Pandora in the main menu, you will be presented with a gate that must be unlocked with a Pandora Coin, or a Phantom Pandora Coin.
Pandora Coins cost 200 gold each, or $1.49.
Phantom Coins are free, and you get one every day that you log on and don’t have one.
Those coins look something like this:
- Once you unlock the gate, you will notice one of the four main colors will be locked out of your control.
- You will be presented with a selection of five randomly selected cards, grouped by card rarity.
- You will proceed to select cards this way until you have completed a deck of 30 cards.
- Every 10 cards, you will be presented with a special “Pandora Treasure” to choose from. Treasures are powerful creatures, structures, or events. They are available only in Pandora, not in Battle Chests or constructed mode. These treasures will become available in-game after Pandora is opened.
- Your goal is to construct the best deck possible using the limited resources you have.
- Once you have done that, you are ready to play Pandora.
Queuing for Pandora works much like any other mode. Whether you use a normal or Phantom coin, you are entered into the same matchmaking queue. You will continue to play with your Pandora deck until you accumulate nine wins, or three losses.
Depending on the amount of games you win in one run, you will earn a certain amount of Pandora Points.
Shuffled into each player’s decks are shards of Pandora. When these shards are drawn, the player then draws another card and Pandora is one step closer to opening.
Once five total shards are drawn by either player, Pandora opens.
When Pandora is opened:
- Faeria Wells will no longer generate Faeria
- Players will now receive +6 Faeria per turn, instead of the normal 3.
- Shards are removed from both player’s decks
- Treasures that were drafted are shuffled into each player’s deck
- “Treasure found” cards are shuffled into each deck. When a “Treasure found” card is drawn, each player gets a random treasure of the three they drafted.
- One “Treasure found” card is drawn as soon as Pandora opens
Treasures are powerful creatures, structures, or events. They are available only in Pandora, not in Battle Chests or constructed mode. These treasures will become available in-game after Pandora is opened.
There are currently 30 treasures available to choose from.
Depending on the amount of games you win in one Pandora run, you will earn a certain amount of Pandora Points (PP).
Those Pandora Points can earn you special rewards at the end of each season.
- 0 Wins: 1 PP + 1 Battle Chest + 80 Gold
- 1 Win: 2 PP + 1 Battle Chest + 90 Gold
- 2 Wins: 4 PP + 1 Battle Chest + 100 Gold
- 3 Wins: 7 PP + 2 Battle Chests + 40 Gold
- 4 Wins: 11 PP + 2 Battle Chests + 70 Gold
- 5 Wins: 16 PP + 2 Battle Chests + 100 Gold
- 6 Wins: 22 PP + 2 Battle Chests + 150 Gold
- 7 Wins: 29 PP + 2 Battle Chests + 200 Gold
- 8 Wins: 37 PP + 2 Battle Chests + 270 Gold
- 9 Wins: 46 PP + 3 Battle Chests + 300 Gold

The goal of Phantom Coins is to let our players experience Faeria’s Pandora mode each day, for free, with the main reward being a piece of a Pandora Run.
- Each player may get one free Phantom Coin per day, if they don’t already have one.
- Phantom Coins do not stack and cannot be purchased (in either Gold or real money).
- The length of a Phantom Run is 3 Wins or 2 Losses;
Phantom Run rewards:
- 0 Wins: N/A
- 1 Win: 10G
- 2 Wins: 20G
- 3 Wins: 1/3 of a Pandora Coin
The matchmaking algorithm for Pandora to creates an MMR-like score per run, based on your number of Wins and Losses.
In general, you should be matched against other players with a similar amount of wins and losses, creating an even playing field where a player’s own drafting skill and gameplay ability determine the opponents they face.
