The second link is the official site and claims $39.99.

That is disappointing to me, as the base game was $60. I was envisioning nearer 30. It doesn't really matter but I am just saying.

I suppose the core set was worth more though and the price point was low to encourage people to buy in. I am curious how many of the cards in this set are new vs reprints. All I hope. But then there is the issue of only 1 set. Will I need two???

I really made a mistake when I bought 1 core set + 1 spelltome...

In retro spec I should have bought 2 core sets... it just makes so much more sense.

Sorry fallen of topic... lol

Just thinking out loud.

I always said buy 2 core sets for sure if that was the path. That thought was posted several times here on various threads. The spelltome was worth it at $15 if you got it online, but if you bought it at your FLGS, you were better off with the Core set.

I'm hoping that by skipping the core tome's and going straight to this expansion that I will get enough cards to fill in 4 full spell books with decent decks to be ready to play at a moments notice.

I am sure you can build any sort of deck you like, but I am also thinking that this is going to be a ton of new cards. You will want the 2nd tome for the Lash, the Hand of Bim Shalla, the Battle Fury, and others.

Buy it all.

Is it going to be a Stand Alone? with the Arena or just an expansion? Why include rules? New terms, conditions or variants? I love those spellbooks if it just an expansion with 2 books it will be awesome now i would be able to have 4 decks ready to go

I have 1 core game and 1 spelltome, and I regret the spell tome.

I think a better buy would have been 2 core sets. Thats perfect for making 4 decks imo.

With this new set coming out, I'm going to want to make 6 decks... Sigh...

Not sure, but I think so, yes. It is just an expansion, like Summoner Wars. Yes for the rules for exactly what you say.

Well, this is a shock. I got the expansion, and hated the Force-Mage book. I could not beleive how dark, bland and detailless it was.

Now, I see a picture of it, and it's nothing like mine. The Blue color graphics I see above are virtually unseen on my book; the white mystic circles are very dark.

The book above I LIKE.
