Helpful Deckbuilding Tips and Decks

This section will contain small deckbuilding tips as well as decks to help novice probationary members reach the 250 rating goal during probation. Any probationary member is always free to use any deck he or she'd like for their probation period, even their own.

You should definately consider these tips when building a deck:

  • ⚫ Try to keep a minimum of 40 cards (39 + Hero) to maximize your decks efficiency and the probability of drawing the cards you need.
  • ⚫ Having 4 copies of a card in your deck will increase the probability of you drawing the card.
  • ⚫ Never put cards in a deck with the intention of sacrificing them. All cards should serve a purpose within your deck and should only be sacrificed depending on aspects of the game, such as your opponent's deck and board control.

For more specific deck-building help, please post your decks in the general section of the forums or ask RS members on Telegram.
