  2. www.wikiupload.com/download_page.php The spreadsheet has 2 tabs (at the bottom). The first is the database. The second is a sheet for a deck. You can make a copy of that tab to record multiple decks. On the deck sheet, only fill in the two yellow shaded columns and the rest will be populated automatically. I recommend copying the card names from teh db, because they have to match exactly for the automatic population. Stats for the deck are provided at the top. The database is sortable. Each header has a drop down that allows you to select a subset of cards. If you want to choose more than 2 possible choices for a column, say faction, select "custom" and then in the pop-up, set the boxes and radio buttons to equals Faction1 -OR- equals Faction2. Warnign, do not resort the db as it must be sorted by Name in order for the deck tab to work properly. This spreadsheet is pretty powerful at searching and filtering cards. If you have any questions, let me know. At this time, the spreadsheet has not been updated for the Core set reprints. -Mike
  3. Two faction decks do not need to be evenly split. In many cases, you can use one faction as the primary faction and a complimentary faction with a smaller percentage of the cards in your deck. The advantage is that for your primary faction, it will be much easier to pay the cost of loyal cards, meet steadfast obligations, and have multiple domains supporting that faction. For a support faction, you may only need to establish one domain for paying for those cards. I have found that 12-15 cards is sufficient to provide enough cards for a secondary faction's inclusion in your deck. This will allow you to focus on the strengths of your primary faction and shore up any weaknesses with second faction without straying to far from your desired strategy.

  5. emails sent... I willing be updateing my wants list very soon to include more commons, uncommons, and asylum pack cards. thanks.
  6. I use an excel spreadsheet spoiler for deck building. It is searchable and filterable. One tab is a database with columns for title, traits (unique, steadfast, transient), type, faction, cost, skill, icons, subtype, game text, set, and rarity. A second tab lets you enter a decklist by quantity and card name, it then automatically fills out the other fields for the card, and provides statistics for number of cards in deck by type, faction, and cost.
  7. Doh!!!! I meant that CoC hasn't had as many power level issues as AGOT.
  8. The article for AGOT was disappointing. I understand the desire to support 2 formats, but if a company is so callous as to advertise their back stock of cards/sets in the rulebook of the LCG only to ban those cards from their primary tournament format (and for FFG, that means the format of the World Championships), then that company will be quickly creating a chasm between themselves and their players. I cannot believe that a company can, in good conscious, push the sell of a product for which they are secretly planning to not allow the use of product in their biggest tournament. I sincerely hope that FFG is smarter than this. I also think there is a difference between AGOT and COC as I don't think COC ever had as many power level issues as COC.
  9. Thanks for the input. I can see where playing Wish for Strength for 0 could really help. One question, are the promo cards still available for Sanity or has the Sanity program ended? Thanks.
  10. Black & white borders allowed. To be honest, I don't know how many of these cards were reprinted in the LCG. Is there an actual rule that prevents the mixing of LCG and pre-LCG cards? If so, it seems disengenious for FFG to advertise previous sets in the LCG rulebook (assuming the PDF rulebook is from the LCG). Thanks. -Mike
  11. So, the first deck I updated after returning to the game was my Agency/Hastur control deck. The deck uses Agency to get characters in play to win stories and for its control abilities against opposing characters. Hastur is included for its ability to counter Events. Support cards, in general, can be very problematic for this deck. Comments are welcome. 3x Canine Guardian 2x Agent Jerry Holland, Undercover Fed 3x Hardboiled Detective 2x Paranormal Specialist 3x Street-Smart Rookie 3x Undercover Security 3x Hired Muscle 1x Mr. Ngambe 3x Forced Entry 3x Small Price to Pay 3x Shotgun Blast 3x Short Fuse 2x Beneath the Burning Sun 2x Feathery Watchers 3x Byakhee Servant 3x Writhing Wall 3x Wrack 3x Power Drain 2x To See Another Day
  12. On the Jump deck... So, the deck would need to run quite a few domain refreshers. The options I see that could work early in the game are: A Time to Sow, Simple Kindness, and Basil Elton. I assume that the goal for the initial Ritual (that allows multiple plays of Adoration of Thoth) is to be as cheap as possible. Since the driving cards so far are in the Miskatonic University or Sub-Niggurath factions, the best rituals seem to be: Adoration of Hetheru, Adoration of Thoth, Legacy of Akhnaton, and Legacy of Nitocris. Many of these require a character in play, but that seems achievable if you get teh engine rolling on turn 2 or later. Thanks for the info. This deck looks like a lot of fun and vastly different from the decks I normally play (Agency/Hastur control, Shubby/MU deck focuses on Black Goat of the Woods). I am going to post my current decks to the deck construction forum for input. Thanks!
  13. Thanks for the reply. I am aware of the change from 4 max to 3 max copies per deck. Having played other ccgs, I am very aware of the impact of 3 vs. 4 copies, but CoC was rather unusual in their 4 max copies in a 50 card deck. Most ccgs had 3 max in a 50 card deck or 4 max in a 60 card deck, so the consistency in CoC was rather unusual for a ccg. I am aware of the premium starters and purchased 2 copies of the AE premium starter long ago. I have read the spoilers, except for Mountains of Madness, and even have an excel spreadsheet that contains all of the cards except MoM. If anyone wants to host the spreadsheet somewhere, let me know and I will make it avaiable (it is sortable, has database tab, and deck tabs which auto fill in cards based on name and collects stats such as factions, costs, and card types in the deck). Historically, I have made 2-faction decks with one Mythos faction and Hero faction (I prefer Agency/Hastur and Shub-Niggurath/Miskatonic University). Any other thoughts are appreciated. -Mike
  14. I played CoC CCG during AE and UT, but drifted away during the release of Eldritch Edition. I am a fairly competitive type player and did very well during the first GenCon winning two of the four tournaments (one constructed and one sealed deck). In the past two weeks I have picked up the Dunwich Denizens and Ancient Horrors asylum packs as well as a few common/uncommon singles. From reading the boards, I have come to a few conclusions. Please confirm or refute these: 1. Mountains of Madness is too narrow in application to provide much value beyond extremely casual decks. 2. The game has gotten a bit quicker. 3. There are combos which can fire early and pretty much lock opponents out of the game. Can anyone explain what these are? 4. Syndicate stunk pretty bad, has it improved at all? Thanks for all responses. -Mike
  15. I haven't really played the CoC card game since Unspeakable Tales. Time and responsibilities have changed a bit and I am looking to get back into the game. Of course, over that period I have missed a ton of cards. Some I can get from friends who kept playing, but others are very difficult to find locally. With that said, here are my haves and wants: Haves (Rares, Promos, Premium Starter only cards): 1x Come to Ghastly End 1x Strange Inheritance 1x The Stars are Right 1x The Orient Express 1x To See Another Day 2x Search Warrant 1x Short Fuse 1x Gangster's Moll 1x Mob Lieutenant 1x Burning the Midnight Oil 1x Double-Cross 1x On the Lam 1x The Rip-Off (note: currently banned per FAQ) 1x Cthulhu, The Thing That Should Not Be 2x Warded Flesh 1x Rampaging Dark Young 1x Shub-Niggurath, The All Mother 2x Shub-Niggurath, The Black Goat of the Woods 1x A Time to Sow 3x Birthing a Thousand Young 1x Altar of the Blessed 1x The Charnel Gate 1x Under the Cloak of Darkness 1x Witch-Mark Wants (in order of priority): 3x Writhing Wall (uncommon) 1x Feathery Watchers 1x Unspeakable Research 2x Gray Dragon Island 1x Kirby O'Donnell, Adventurer Abroad 1x Norman Blackwood, Jr., Scholarly Detective 1x Y'Golonac, The Obscenity 1x Dr. Ali Kafour, Middle Eastern Scholar 1x Ghost of Perdition 1x Randolph Carter 3x Charnel Vaults (note: uncommon) I am willing to trade multiple haves for a single want. Feel free to make an offer, the worst I can do is reject it. Depending on the cost, I may be willing to pay cash for cards on my Wants list. Thanks, -Mike
