Subject: Is this set a good idea as an expansion? rss

Hi, I have one set of Ascension, Dreamscape, I was thinking about buying something to increase the variety, but was afraid of diluting the special dream aspect too much, looking at the number of cards in this set it seems to be good idea, can anyone weigh in on this?

In terms of sheer numbers for the main portal deck, you are correct...this would add to the variety without diluting the set too much. Where this could become a problem is the potential difference in card backs/frames (whether or not you could tell a set apart by the difference in the printing tone of its card backs), though I think they are supposed to be identical with sets published after the Apprentice Edition. Someone from StoneBlade would be able to answer this question a littler better. In my humble opinion, the Apprentice Edition could expand the deck without adding in major-crazy effects, so I'd say go for it.

This looks like a very interesting build, and it has the potential to give more variety (based on the combinations you decide to use) through having a much larger portal deck to sift through. I like it!

Thanks! It is rather cheap so I'll risk the card backs and see
