Where to Start?

Post by Lord dragon » Mon Sep 23, 2013 3:49 pm

So my old cards are apparently so old they are illegal.

Wondering where to start, are there deckbuilder kits? Starter decks? stuffs?

I forgot they had set rotation, seems like a silly idea to me...

If you play legacy you can use them. Except the banned ones

Um, according to the gu i talked to at the card shop all my cards are banned in every format. They were printed quite a while ago, and they have changed the card format since then.

You can get starter/structure decks that usually are duel colored as over bought a fe. Their are starter deck builders but not worth the cost imo

So if I understand the basic options. . .

1. Drafting, get random stuff. $12
2. Deck Builder Tool Kit $22
3. Starter Deck $15-25 can't remember
4. Event Deck $25
5. Lots of Packs
6. Box of Packs

The event deck is probably the best option, they're usually fairly close to competitive. The other options are mostly just packs, and generally not worth it.

Though I would draft as well, since it's really fun and takes a bit of time to learn.

Also, were my guesses even close to accurate for price?

Yes, I'm pretty sure they were spot-on, although drafting at some stores might be a little bit more.
