I just received the expansion and got the extra pack of cards intended to replace existing cards. I replaced the dragon cards;that makes sense to ensure the old and new cards having matching backs and print quality.

I can't figure out why I'd need to replace the battle cards. As far as I can tell, they're the same number and same cards. There aren't any "new" ones that need to match up. I'm not complaining; extra cards are nice, but is there a practical reason I should swap out the replacement battle cards?

Thanks!

Cool. My puppy destroyed a few battle cards during our first play.

There was a slight color difference between the battle and advanced battle card backs. So we replaced the cards. Most people don't notice, but if you're hardcore competitive with the game, the replacement cards are better.

Ah, I didn't notice. Thanks for the clarification. I play with clear sleeves, but it's not competitive enough to notice or care. I may swap them for posterity's sake. I did keep the foil cards from the original KS bonus and I don't see much of a difference between those backs and the new cards.
