Maybe it's out there somewhere and I overlooked it. However how would you go about making this expansion as only adding another faction and keep the balance of the game. I know about the deck building concept and also adding it all in and just playing for fun. However I want to add the faction and not mess with the balance.

1) Do you add just the base deck and nothing else?

2) Do you add just the base deck and the common cards?

3) Do you add the base deck and then swap out:
* Barbarian faction: Enchanted Forest replaces Primeval Forest,
* Japanese faction: Modern Farm replaces Farm,
* Roman faction: Distant Trade Colony replaces Trade Colony,
* Egyptian faction: Mystic Pyramids replaces Pyramid.

4) Do you add the base deck and the common card, then swap out:
* Barbarian faction: Enchanted Forest replaces Primeval Forest,
* Japanese faction: Modern Farm replaces Farm,
* Roman faction: Distant Trade Colony replaces Trade Colony,
* Egyptian faction: Mystic Pyramids replaces Pyramid.


Thanks for advice guys

We just picked up this game recently (and all the expansions). After a few plays I decided to crack open the Atlanteans and answer this very question.

After much reading and thinking I added just the Atlantean faction deck (Cards ATL00-30).

We've been playing this way and it's been perfectly balanced in the games we played. Think of it like the Japanese faction, the Atlanteans gimic is technology and their drawback is no VP from Faction buildings at the end of the game.

Looking through the extra faction and common cards it seemed like they were more for people interested in deck building than playing straight faction games anyway, so I put them aside.

I put the WCWBFs Atlantean cards with the rest of that expansion for now.

TL;DR - Option 1 - Just the base deck and nothing else.
