Are starter decks balanced against Structure decks?

Post by signofzeta » Sun Oct 14, 2012 1:47 am

Can anyone here confirm that if I used a starter deck as is, and faced it against any structure deck as is, would the matchup result in roughly equal amounts of wins and losses for both starter and structure decks, or will structure decks always win most of the time?

Let's say if a store had some tournament where the people playing are only allowed to use the sealed starter or structure deck given to them. Would the person that is given the starter deck, rather than the structure deck be at a disadvantage?

Starter decks are for new players, starting the game.
Structure decks are for you to build on, they provide a structure.
Tis all in the name.

Starter decks aren't made to be competitive. They're for new players to get to grips with the game.
Structure decks are made for a specific stratergy although if you want to be competitive you'll always want 2-3 of them without even thinking about other cards.

You see the plain structure deck is about as good as a plain starter though when taking 3 of the structure decks and making a deck it is WAY better then taking 3 starter decks and taking the best cards out of them and making a deck.
