4 player deck building with 2 cores and (almost) all expansions

Recommended Posts

I have been looking around a bit, trying to see if I could find 4 decks that me and my group could play, using 2 cores and the current expansions (I don't have Blood on the Alter yet, but it is on it's way). Unfortunately, it seems most of the decks that people share are either solo decks or to decks designed to work in pairs, so I figured I would try and put together something myself. However, I don't actually enjoy building decks all that much, so I found 4 decks on ArkhamDB that didn't seem to overlap that much and used those as a starting point. Agnes, because I found a solo deck that seemed to work. Roland and Rex for some beat-down and some clue gathering but flexible enough that they are not one trick ponies. And finally Jenny, because, well, I like Jenny, but I suspect it is the weakest deck because I modified it the most, without a clear idea of what the purpose of the deck is.

I would love to hear what you think about them, because I won't get a chance to test them out for a while. Obviously they are not optimal, because they have to share the card-pool. Most notable are the neutral +2 skill cards which I would have liked to use more of. I considered using proxies (I even have some of them printed and cut, ready to go) but it just doesn't sit right with me.

I wanted to publish them on ArkhamDB but it doesn’t allow a noob like me to post more than one deck a day, so I have listed the decks here:
