Hey there,

just a short question: is it possible to play this using only commons (from the Jyhad, VTES, Ancient Hearts, Dark Souvereigns, Sabbat editions)? I'm not looking for tournament play or such, just a couple of sessions now and then with other people new to the game. Is that a good way to start or would you recommend "the whole package" at once?
Thanx.

You can easily make a competitive deck using nothing but commons. You may not have as many possible deck types, but you can still make dozens of different deck themes this way.

Unlike other games, most rares and uncommons in this game aren't more powerful, they're simply cards you wouldn't want that many of. There are some rares/uncommons that are extremely useful, but you can still make a deck without them.

actually, you can make some truly tournament worthy decks using weenies and commons only.

Animalism weenies, as well as potence, dominate. Go to the rec group for jyhad, not the trade list, but the other one. lots of good ideas there.
