In a discussion about the relative merits of the two damage decks some have mentioned that the original is more swarm-friendly while the new is more ace-friendly.

Has anyone tried using one of each? Might that balance things more?

I know that would never past muster for OP, but for casual play it might work. For the broken POS that Star Trek Attack wing is we use two damage decks anyway simply because we own two core sets.

Or are the backs different? Can't remember at the moment. Hmmm...getting old.

The reason the old deck is "better for swarms" is that they get to treat 4 of the crits in the deck as effectively blank. From the swarm player's perspective, that's preferable, but mechanically it's not balanced. The new deck was designed to make crits more meaningful, so if your concern is balance just stick with the new one.
