Competitive Innovations: Archive

Competitive Innovations is a (now) weekly column we started with 9th Edition to highlight winning lists from tournaments each week, aiming to see what tools people are using in the new edition and how things change over time. This page has links to each article in the series.

Don’t want to search through past editions for the latest hot tech for your faction? Why not take a look at the List Archetypes page, which summarises all the current top builds in the metagame.
