This is a GeekList to list Deck Building games with a static market.

For more information about the Deck Building mechanic in general, visit Deck / Pool Building.

These games involve a static market of cards, chits, or whatever the player is using to build a deck / bag with. This means that a predetermined number of card types are selected before the game begins, and the market is constructed using a fixed number of each of these card types. The players buy from this market for the duration of the game. For example, Dominion uses this type of deck building.

The game is focused enough on this static market of cards to name this as one of the main mechanics of the game. Of course, this might be your subjective opinion.

Please feel free to add the games you think that suit these rules to this GeekList.

Intrigue version of Dominion has the same mechanics as Dominion, only different sets of cards.

War Eternal is to Aeon's End how Intrigue is to Dominion. An advanced set of cards and different bosses to encounter.

Rising Sun is the second base set in the Trains family. This seems to be a trend among deck building games.

Rune Age has private static markets for each player where only they can buy cards from, as well as a public static market. These private markets differ from player to player as they represent different races available to play with.

Nightfall also has both private and public card sets available for purchase, and what these markets contain is determined by a drafting phase at the beginning of the game.

The same 9 card types for every game (though 9 more are coming in the expansion). Differs from most deckbuilders in that you choose your hand rather than randomly drawing it.

Bag building done very well.

Each color of cube represents a fixed ability throughout a game. Some are always the same, and some are variable between games.

The fixed market represents The City, and the villains damage that city by trashing cards in the supply. Can you stop them while there's anything left to save?

A game that could have been really excellent with more development, alas.

In this Knizia design, whenever there are no copies left of a card type in the static market, several other card types are available for a one time purchase for the active player. Whichever card type the active player chooses to purchase then gets added to the static market of card types, leaving the unselected card types locked until another type is depleted.

In Eminent Domain, every turn you choose a card from the central market and use it before permanently adding it to your deck. You can also boost it by playing cards from your hand that match its symbol.
