I'm a big Warhammer buff and TCG fan so I thought this game would be perfect to pick up. However, I'm a bit hesitant about one crucial factor and maybe you guys can alleviate some of my worries. My biggest pet peeve is that the LCG mechanic is designed to be fair and I don't need to buy extra stuff to obtain all the cards right? Wrong. After doing some research online, it seems that cards are spread out everywhere in the expansions and there's not the same amount of cards in each expansion!
For example, I play High Elves in the WHFB TT and I'm looking to make a High Elf deck. But then I look on deckbox and find that the cards I need are spread out through every expansion, some have 3 copies of a card, some have 2 and some only have 1. So when making a deck that I need 3 of, I need to buy 3 of the same expansion pack so I'll have 9 Empire cards I don't need just so I can get 3 of a High Elf card. Isn't that worse than buying singles of a mythic rare card for MTG (which I also play)? At least with the singles I'm getting what I need!
I'll expand just a little more: To make the deck I want, I need to actually buy every, single expansion that contains High Elves, and multiples of those expansions. So that pretty much means the entry fee to the game is gigantic.. costing almost the same cost as me buying 2-3x Battalion boxes from Games Workshop.
Are you guys seeing something I'm not? Please help..
