I've bought Band of brothers (additional ghosts cards) and to add them it is required to remove randomly other ghosts cards from the deck, but I don't like the idea any of those beautiful cards beeing excluded from the game. I know I can just add them but it will make the game a bit harder, and I'm not ready for this yet What You think of the idea of putting two new cards in the deck below Wu-Feng and two of them above? It would increase difficulty adding two ghosts but decrease it at the same time by giving some more time to bit Wu-Feng. Would it be ballanced? I'm new in this game so I would like to read the opinion from more experienced players.

The solution is to play as described, but play more often so you see all your cards.

Once you have mastered the game you can add more ghosts to increase difficulty.

IMO, adding Ghosts at the bottom does not only makes the game easier, it also changes it, because it removes a lot of what made facing Wu-Feng an emergency. I'd suggest simply adding them or remove 4 ghosts randomly.

I've just won my first solo on normal level (without Band of brothers expansion)so I feel encouraged to add four more ghost to the deck
Thank You for advice.

Swapping the ghosts out randomly does indeed remove beautiful cards, but there is another way to look at it. By slightly randomizing the deck, you are increasing the possible permutations of the ghost deck exponentially. This adds an immense amount of replayability, since you not only never know which incarnation you'll be facing, but you'll not be able to predict which ghosts, or how many of each, will be in the deck in any given game. Beautiful madness!
