Hello all,

I just played my first game this past weekend, it was Melee with 5 players, and it was amazing.  Martell slowly built a terrifying army, as Stark rushed wolves and a constant stream of Dragons loomed in the background.  I defended the Iron Islands, lost miserably, and couldn't have had more fun in an opening game.

I now want to start my own deck, but I am very frugal, so I would like to precreate it and then go buy only the booster packs or starter cards I need.  I am farmiliar with other deck building games where there are websites that allow you to search by casting cost(gold in this case) strength, and text of card.  I am looking for one of these search engines for this game, and have been unable to locate one. 

Can someone please post link here?

Thank you all for your time!

what house are you planning on playing?  i only ask because it might make more sense financially to buy some stuff and build with what you have as oppossed to building a deck and buying all the chapter packs and expansions that have cards you want to use

difficult question at this point.

Fluff wise I would like to build a barthenon deck around the alternative reality that robert was not killed, the lightning lord eddard stark send out to kill gregor clegane was detained and those loyal men to king robert returned as his body guards, and they all hid out at storms end while the lannisters fought the starks.  The happy ending in my head is that Robert would have brought his brothers together, and helped coordinate stannis and renely's attack to take back kings landing and overturn Tywins counter attck on the city.  Its a nice dream... and I love this world for being so deep that I can fall into it.

Irregardless of my fantasy, it would be a deck focused mostly on the three brothers of barthenon, a bunch of knights, and some shadow and stealth.  I feel like the plot cards are where I should begin when building, as they define my income level and turn order, which will heavily influence what kind of characters I want to dominate the deck.

 

thank you so much for the links!

 If you want to play Baratheon, Kings of the Storm is a good place to start.

It's far from perfect by itself- for a start, Robert, Renly and Stannis only really work individually, not together, but that box will give you all the core locations and generic characters. Then you can work out the versions of precise things you want from elsewhere.
