Not that I'm saying such a variant is impossible, but the purpose of deckbuilding is to build your deck while you're playing, which somehow goes against the idea of drafting. Or, if you prefer, you're already kind of drafting while playing (for a cost).

That said, you might want to try Epic. It's a slightly related game (more akin to MtG than to Ascension) and it sports several drating variants which are really fun.

Yup, random market deckbuilding is pretty much drafting except you must pay for the card. Give a card up and your opponent can draft it themselves.

I have a drafting suggestion... but...
-- it just adds time to the game
-- it feels counter intuitive for reasons already stated above.
-- but maybe it can fit a "two headed giant" or "emperor" game.

So... here's the draft: For two players or two teams:

Shuffle the deck.
Deal 4 cards to each player.
Each player picks one card (from 4) and adds to his stack. Then pass the remaining 3 cards to an opponent.
Opponent picks 2 cards (from 3).
Last card goes to the original player.
Deal out 4 cards to each player and Repeat until each player has a stack of 24 cards.

Each player shuffles their stack and deals out 4 cards in front of them as their "market" of cards to buy from.
However, you can also buy from any other "market" by paying an extra 2 gold per card.


In a two player game, there would be six face-up cards available to buy; but in a four player game, you'd have access to 12 face-up cards.
