Deck size

Post by Gorrath » Fri May 16, 2008 4:13 pm

Just wondering...

Do you always try to keep your deck as smallest as possible?

I've always done that with all CCGs and was trying to do the same with MeCCG.
Well, my decks are all 30/30 right now, but I would like to reduce them to 25/25, but I just learned the 12-creatures minimum rule and it's now kinda harder to make a smaller deck with the same focus and still the same minimum of creatures...

Is there some kind of decks that benefits from being bigger?

You always want your deck to be the minimun size of 30/30, speed is just too important.

Sealed deck is 25/25 with 10 creature minimum. (or less if you really did not draw any creatures, it has happened to me and being forced to take Crebain in your deck sucks)

The sideboard has 30 cards as well, so that is for later in the game to score White Tree or some other big combo or hazards to hit the specific area your opponent is at.

Ah...I guess that's why my old decks were 30/30 and not 25/25.

I should really read all the tournament rules!

Most tournaments will be 2-deck games, which is why the minimum is 30/30 with 12 creatures.

Sealed deck is usually only a 1-deck game, which is why you can do a 25/25 with 10 creatures.

of course the smaller deck the better, but sometimes it's not easy to get rid of some cards - for such times remember that hazards and resources aren't the only cards in decks, you always have some characters too &nbsp;:wink:

generally I try to keep my decks below 70 cards total (resources+hazards+characters): 30-32 res/haz and 3-10 characters
Why the heck is signature text limited to only 150 characters now?
