I picked up all 3 of the expansions just recently and decided to try my hand at the deckbuilding rules.

I built 1 deck for each of the 5 factions, chose the expansion's cards that I liked the best for that faction, and followed the rules for building a deck with a single expansion's cards.
Note that I haven't even played a single game with the Atlanteans yet, but I mucked with their deck as well.
The goal is for these decks to sit in the box as-is, and be the "defaults" for everyone to play with without deckbuilding each time.
Here's what I came up with. Opinions welcome!

I might also take a closer look at the Commons Deck and build an "optimized" version of less-than-everything but more-than-just-the-base-game, but that will take a little bit more work.

Your thoughts?

In my opinion Egyptians are the strongest with WCWBF expanion due to double stored gold and gold open prod. And I would mix Romans with 3IAMN.

That's ironic how strong are Barbarians with technology

With Egyptians, I just saw the combo with golden locations right away; this was actually the first one I built.
With Romans, the 3iamn cards just weren't inspiring me. I dunno.
I'll try these out, at least in Solo, to see how they do.

Japanese with 3IAMN is good as well, they are the most colorfocus faction (just look how many red they have )
