I have just the core set using the pretty successful 3 sphere "killer" deck.
Since khazad-dum arrives this week I was unsure what to expect having only played a handful of Games.
Would I consider basically keeping my original deck adding select cards from khazad ? Or something else?
New user appreciation for the patience and help!

I played 40 or so games in the core before moving on to Shadows of Mirkwood. This was purely for getting mechanics down and really getting the most out of that set (I already had everything through the Dwarrowdelf cycle bought). So I guess replaying the scenarios a bunch.

As to building with the new set, there aren't a ton of new cards so you are still limited in your building. Many of the player cards in KD are pretty good though.

Now that you've played a few games you should have a fair idea of how you like to play and what cards work. When you get your new set, have a look at the player cards. Those that you like the look of, put into your deck, swapping out those that you don't find as useful. Then, try the deck out.

If the deck doesn't work against the quest, why? Was there something you could have done differently? Was the draw from the encounter deck just particularly bad? Or do you need to change some of the cards in your deck?
