I have been playing with the core set for a little while (Just the standard decks), and now I have just bought all the expansions (6 x genesis cycle + C&C) . I am sitting here, looking at all the cards and just realised why I don't play Magic anymore. I absolutly hate deckbuilding !
When I want to play the game, I just wanna pick up two decks and start playing. So what I want now is to just put together some decks once and for all. I was hoping to put together a deck for each of the 7 factions and have them balanced out, so all combinations are playable against each other.
But I realise some problems with this approch.
Firstly, there simply doesn't seem to be enough neutral cards to make this work. Some of the economic cards seems to be mandatory in all decks.
Secondly, the influence rule seems to indicate, that you need to mix it up instead of making "monocolor" decks (to use a magic term)
So I need some advise. How do I get these decks I want? Can you make mono-faction decks without neutrals and still make them playable? Do anyone know of some decklists, that might make this happen?
