Is it just me or does the encounter deck size seem to keep getting smaller? each quest is a lean and mean size. This actually affects several things:
-Denethor and other abilities putting cards on the bottom of the encounter deck are less valuable since before if you put a card on the bottom of the encounter deck you would likely not see it again. (Out of the Wild however gets better)
-Naturally you go through the encounter deck more times each game and you deal with the same cards more frequently and the cards revealed become less random.
-There seems to be more theme in the encounter deck, it synergies with itself better and fights against the players more consistently.
-With Easy Mode, the encounter deck is refined even more!
-So many cards seem to have Surge now or you deal additional Shadow Cards so you go through the deck that much faster.
So, do you all prefer a larger or smaller encounter deck? And in general how much do you think this affects the play experience?
