About how many cards do I need to make 2 decent-to-good decks?
I have a starter, about 150 random cards, and 5 booster packs I scored off eBay. What are some good deck-building tips?

You probably have enough to make a playable deck, but not a great one. Buy more cards

In terms of strategy, Missile Decks were always popular - lots of mid-cost mechs with missile meant you could hit your opponent's deck even when they block. Decks that target resources were also horrible - mostly an intrigue thing, but with fast mech support.

The Davion Steiner untap decks were brutal, but they used a heavy pool of rare cards, so I wouldn't stress too much.

Do you have anyone to play against?

No, I don't; that's why I want to have at least two good decks. That way, I can teach somebody else to play, and let them borrow a deck. I've been picking up cards on eBay, but Battletech is pretty expensive, especially for a dead CCG.

It has a very loyal fan base. I'd suggest just building what you can at the start, stick to factions as much as possible and try to build up your collection when you can. Enjoy!

Is there anywhere to find out what's actually in demand for this? I have a shedload of these, all split into about a dozen faction decks, plus extras. I'd like to know if they're worth anything...

Well, I'd like them, and I guess Brent would, so there's some demand!

Otherwise I'd check the marketplace here and ebay and see what's what.
