I'm enjoying the app and would like to buy the game. For about the same price, I can get the year one collector's box or the original art CotG with Storm of Souls and Immortal Heroes. Any thoughts?

Personally, I went with the Year One Collection. It includes all the first year promos, new art, all foil cards, nice play board, no brainer for me

If you like foil, go for the Year One Collection. Its a better value than buying everything in it separately. If, like me, you dislike shiny cards, you can instead opt to get CotG and Storm of Souls, which have both been reprinted with the newer art and borders that the Year One Collection has. Note that the small expansions that go with them do not have this treatment yet though, so getting them now (not in the Year One Collection) means having cards with frames that are mismatched slightly, if that's the kind of thing that bothers you. I hope that helps!

I am also looking to start this game and trying to figure out what to start with? I like buying all expansions of a game eventually. And am new to deck builders.

FWIW, we played at a friend's place who had the foil cards, and they were very hard to read unless you got the exact proper angle of light on them.

I always vote normal cards.

I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

I can feel bits of my brain falling away like wet cake.

Huh. I've had no problem at all with reading the cards, both for myself and fellow players.

By any chance, is this a photo of your friend's gaming room?

No problems reading the cards for me or my wife. All cards sleeved and perfectly readable
