I've been waiting for a game with the feel of M:TG without having to collect loads of cards and spend lots of money. My FLGS are getting them in today and I'm thinking about getting two sets to start so I can make 60 card decks for each faction and then if I like it and get more people who want to play it with me get a third so we can go for a cube draft. Does that sound like a decent way to go?

IMO, if you're going to buy more than one set, you might as well just get 3 up front. That way you have all the cards you'll ever need.

This is a way to go, but I don't think it's the best way to go. I think it's kind of boring to play single-faction decks. Also, decks are only 30 cards, so you can do that with one copy of the game.

I would just play one of the many limited variants. Drafting is probably the best, especially with 3 or 4 players. With two players, a Rochester draft might be best.

Yeah I see that now. The only format you need a deck of 60 cards is constructed and all others the decks are 30 cards. I think the limited formats are probably the best way to go. I may only grab one set right now it that case because I don't think I'll ever have more than 4 people to play this with, at least not right now anyway.

I played with the suggest draft and I loved it. I think I will never play sealed again.

1,3 or 4 (1 regualar, 3 boxes for pseudo rarity) make sense imho!

Tend to agree but sealed is good for teaching and if you are later very experienced and want quick games.

I'm trying to decide whether to get one or two sets. I don't have the money right now to spend close to $50 but can swing $30 or so. Honestly does it make sense to get a second set right now if I'm only ever going to have 2-4 players anyway?

I'd start with one set. You can always get additional sets later. I am very happy with my three sets, but one is enough to get started.

Well, I tend to keep the previous drafted decks. if I'm in a hurry I use those ones, otherwise we do a new draft.

I have 4 so far, working my way up to 10. 3 for Cube, 3 for Constructed, 1 for Demigods, 3 for Elder Gods.

If you are a single dude: 1, 3 or 4 make sense.

1 for regular games, 3 for rarity drafting, and if you do that you can keep those two sets separated. The gods are okay, but don't justify another box imho.
