How many copies of the base set and expansions would I need to do so?

Looking to play a huge 11 player game.

A lot...

The problem is that most of the units from the first set and first expansion are unique, so building a 600 pt force for a single player is difficult enough let alone doing it for 11 players!

The real issue is with the dual colored plainswalkers though. The game only gives you enough spell cards to use the base 5 plainswalkers. You need at least 2 copies of the base game to even make use of the two plainswalkers from the expansion (without cannibalizing the spell decks from the other plainswalkers).


If I had to guess, with the addition of the 4 new plainswalkers (one of which is a duplicate of Jace, just with new abilities, so I'm not sure if you would want to use him along with the original one), I would say that you would need at least 2 of each set and possibly 5 or 6 of the starter sets in order to be able to use all 11 plainswalkers.

You might be able to get by with just 2 of each set, but you are going to severely limit the spells that are available to the dual color plainswalkers.

I currently have 2 base sets and one copy each of the 2 expansions, so I have spell decks for all the Planeswalkers. The main problem is boosting the summomable creatures available for each to 600 points, keeping in mind that the squads and heroes are unique.
