5?

I didn't see any with Max 6?

5 actually seems excessive for deck building, but I'm sure I don't know have a clue just yet.

I think the max dice 5 characters are only the uncommon versions of the starter set characters. So 2 starters + 1 uncommon OR 1 starter + 3 of each U. I plan on keeping 2 of each non starter common and of each U and R (or 1 R and UR) to have the 4 dice and eventually picking up a 2nd starter and not have to need 3 common Beast's (etc) to field the 5 dice max characters

Wait, what? You only need one card to add dice, not multiples of them. You'll only ever need one of each card, barring trading; in fact, you can't have more than one character card at a time anyway.

I don't think he was saying that. Just that it would likely be easier to get 5 dice for the starter characters by buying 2 starters and pulling 1 uncommon for each, rather than only having one starter and hoping to pull 3 uncommons for each. Granted there was a typo in saying 'common' rather than 'uncommon'.

As for keeping 2 of each non-starter common, it's probably just a matter of maintaining the one-card-per-die equilibrium in his collection. It's what I would do, because I don't think anyone would want a random common card without a matching die and I'd feel bad if I just threw extras away.

OK. That makes sense. I think I will try and maintain 5 of each for everything, just in case of expansion cards.

Just for clarification sake: You'll need 5 of any starter character. 4 of everyone else except for Phoenix, who you'll only need 3 of.

You think wizkids is gonna make an expansion, with the same characters and use the same dice from base set? Not a chance :)

You only need 4 of the starter characters as well. They each have Max 4 (3 versions come in the starter and they each only have one other version in the boosters).

The Max on all of the Uncommon characters from the starter is 5.

Edit: You're talking about the cards I assume, which you are correct, you'll only need the 4 cards. But the thread is about dice, where you'll need 5 of the starter characters.

Don't have the uncommon versions so I thought that all versions of the card had the same Max number. Strange that they would be different.

Yeah, I agree it's weird. But from WizKid's business perspective it either forces you to buy a second starter and/or continually buy packs until you get the 3rd, 4th and 5th of their respective dice.

It isn't about making people buy more boosters. The different max dice numbers are for gameplay balancing.
