First, sorry if this is addressed in these forums somewhere already, but I found the searching a bit... difficult. And the posts I did find all seemed to refer to previously released cards and stuff like that.
I'm *very* new to this LCG, but I've played and collected other CCGs before. I've been trying to get a real good grasp of how this plays so that I can introduce it to my other good gaming friends, but I'm having a bit of a hard time constructing some decks that are good and fun to play against eachother. I'm hoping somebody here could maybe provide a sample deck or two under some "basic constraints" that I might be able to then use as example decks.
For reference: I've managed to make one deck that I think is fun and at least somewhat balanced that is build around two factions. Sorry, not sure the names of the factions, but the deck is dual faction built around Shubby and Dark Youngs as one faction and the other has Yog--Sothoth and a bunch of cultists. I tried building a insanity/discard deck to play against the first one with, but with all the willpower + terror symbols in the first deck, its not really fun to play. I also didn't want to just grab two factions for each set from the base game as I think my friends will be much more intested in the game if they can get a quick feel for how the deck "works" and perhaps has a theme around it, etc.
Now... the "basic constraints" I mentioned before is that the example decks to play with would need be built from only the core set of LCG (3 copies), and 3 copies each of At the Mountains of Madness and Ancient Horros. (I.e. I've access to no earlier released cards, but have gone a bit hog-wild with buying the LCG stuff. *grin*). The decks need not be super tournament competative or anything like that. Just two decks that work somewhat well with themselves, or at least have a general "idea" for how they're played. If they could have a good theme (like the Shubby deck) that is all the better.
Thanks a bunch all,
