I have Rise of Virgil and Dawn of Champions and mostly play solo, and they don't really go together. Rise of Virgil goes best with Darkness Unleashed.

That said RoV and Darkness Unleashed is my favorite combo. RoV is my favorite set in general.

If you really want DoC get it with Realms Unraveled.

I've played Realms Unraveled with Darkness a Unleashed quite a bit and I think they work well together, although I think it's a more difficult combination than average.

Realms Unraveled is a lot of fun, and I find it the most challenging set so far.

I think the hate for DoC is overblown. Yes, an early very lucky rally can put the game away, but this is extremely rare. More often, big rallies happen right at the end, but setting yourself up for one is the result of decisions made earlier in the game and has an opportunity cost, so it's neither as unfair or unbalanced as people say, IMHO.

As far as I know, Storm of Souls is the only set with a card that has the word "demon" in its name, although many monsters throughout the sets are certainly demon-looking.

Dawn of Champions is okay. Rally really can make things crazy, especially if you Rally something really powerful early on, but it is fun. The character and faction cards sort of guide you more toward specific strategies, whereas other sets can feel like you're just buying the most expensive card you can afford.

It's hard to say what to add to Realms Unraveled as I don't own it other than on my phone, and when I play on my phone it's an every-set mega-game. It doesn't have a smaller companion set like all the previous big boxes.
