I am only going to be playing 2-player games of this and ain't planning on deckbuilding. Is there any reason for me to buy a second base set plus KS extras?

Unless you wanna gift one, nope. If you are restricting yourself to 2 players, no deck building, then 1 is fine.

Integrating 2 decks opens up some more drafting possibilities. Additionally, owning 2 decks allows you to pit the same preconstructed alignment or demigod decks against one another.

There are many cards that you would like to have 2 copies of, plus it's cool to have the opportunity for both sides to field a Kong or T-Rex or what have you, or maybe get lucky enough to bring them two at the same time.

The simplest answer to your question: To have two of each card.

Only 2 players and no deckbuilding E one is enough.

The KS extras add some more cards and Demigods, but I think you'll get a ton of play out of that first little box.

There will also be expansions eventually if you want more cards.

I was thinking on getting two copies so I can make the pre constructed decks 60 cards and have two copies of each card in there. What is everyone's though about doing this? Also having more cards to draft from wouldn't be the worst thing in the world either.

I think the game is designed for 30 card Decks. With 60 cards, you will never be able to Win by depleting your deck.

With 60 cards you still can win by depletion. With so many events having the Draw 2 option, and having 3x of those, still function.

I own 3 copis so that I could play Elder God mode, and that is enjoyable enough, but 1 deck was just fine for most meetups.
