What deck size do most of you stick to? I have been sticking to the tournament 50 limit (and CCG player in me has me keep it at 50). Just curious.

I do likewise. I think it's just the habit of playing other CCG's in the past that locks me in, although there are so many good cards out now that I get tempted to load up a few more from time to time.

I do 50+....about 54-55. The minimum is 50.

Granted, the more cards past 50, make for a weaker deck.

Used to play 30 cards deck when I didn't have much cards.
Then stuck with 50 cards deck once I had enough cards.
Now with all the card draws and player deck manipulation, I often find myself comfortable with even 55~70 cards decks.

As close to 50 as possible. Usually the highest is 53.

I have a strict maximum (and minimum) deck size of 50 cards with one exception: I'll add a handful more if I anticipate early, reliable card draw. For instance, I ran 59 in a Bombur/Ori deck that almost always got to 5 dwarves on turn 1, giving me double card draw for the entire game. In a solo or 2-player deck, i could see Bilbo filling a similar role, though his effect is so watered down by player count that it would probably be better to stick to 50 then too.

53. 50 proper cards and 3 Daeron's Runes. Unless I don't use Lore, then it's 50.
