I've played starter decks against each other and didn't find the game very satisfying. I'm wondering if anyone ever constructed specific decks that are fun to play against each other. I'd love to see the recipes for two or more pre-constructed decks that are well-matched against each other.

I'm not really into the game for collecting cards and constructing decks that are meant to crush my opponents. I would rather just have a couple of decks that are good against each other.

Anyone have decks recipes that would be good for this?

From my experiance I can say that starters vs starters are almost unplayable. You need a lot more cards, then this game is pretty good actually.

Buy at least two booster boxes (2 premiere ed. or 1 premiere and 1 101361 Booster Box) and minimum two starters to build at least two decks that could be pretty even.


To quote a guy on the geek: "The truth is out there but you need a lot of cards to find it."

If you are buying the green boxes, then it would be almost impossible to play a game with those decks. The blue boxes are better. I mentioned http://www.xfilesccg.com/ in another post. They have a list of some example deck builds.
