Socketed Cards

Introduction[edit | edit source]

Some cards have sockets. If you insert a gem in the socket and pay for the gem's costs, then you get the gem's benefits. For example, Rotting Knight is a 2/1 zombie that costs ③ resources and has Blood MagicBlood Magic thresholds. If you insert a white gem and you have a white threshold, then it becomes a 2/3 zombie. But if you insert a red gem and have a red threshold, then it becomes a 2/1 zombie with [Swiftstrike]. So you can customize socketable cards however you like.

You can find a complete list of socketable cards at Hex TCG browser and Hex card search engine.

Rules[edit | edit source]

For both PvP and PvE:

  • You cannot use more than 4 copies of each gems per deck.
  • You can insert major gems in minor sockets, but not vice versa.
  • If you don't pay the gem's costs, then you won't get the gem's benefits, but you can still play the card normally.
  • If you create a socketable card in battle, then it will have a random gem with your threshold.

For PvP:

  • You can change gems between rounds like you change reserved cards.

For PvE:

  • Some computers use different gems than we do.
