Funny, I heard Legions are horrible. Dragon Shield Matte are now my sleeve of choice. Such a butter smooth shuffle. :)

Oh I heard legions were ok. That is what you get with anecdotal evidence I guess.

I just double sleeved by my 3 core sets with KMC Perfect Fits and Hyper Matts, and oh man do they look and feel good!

That must have been a painful task.

I was thinking for sleeving with just perfect fits then just drop them into KMC Hyper sleeves when I used them but I didn't like the deck thickness and overtime sleeving everything is a costly venture.

Legion matte are great. The rest of their stuff is garbage.

It actually goes by pretty quickly if you get in a groove.  Say 10 cards per minute, you can sleeve 3 core sets in a little over an hour.  Two hours easily if you take your time.  You are right, it does make the decks a bit thicker, but that is an acceptable trade-off for me.  And yes, it is a bit costly too, but my play time is at such a premium, it is a huge help to avoid ever having to sleeve or re-sleeve new decks.  Thanks!

This is correct. I've heard that their matte and art sleeves (I think one or two are AGoT inspired like Keep Calm and Hodor) are very good. Rest of their stuff is subpar.

So I just recently got into the game and found the perfect sized ones. They are the Legion brand and I  use the Nights Watch (still am yet to win wit the deck, but the look nice. Although I love the design on the FFG image ones, I find that they have too much overlap at the top, so you send to get that worn bent look when looking at the image side.

 

I play a lot of swlcg and all of them are sleeved in Ultra Pro matte and am sticking to them for my sleeving requirements. I swap objectives so much, for me to use anything other than red for DS and blue for LS would we tantamount to insanity.

 

If I find other legion designs that I like for either SWLCG or Thrones IPs, then I will maybe get a few for tourneys.

 

Edit: and yet the Nights watch ones are Matte

I use KMC Hyper Mat for most of my TCG and LCGs. Expensive but i am very happy with thier durability and shuffling feel. If i were to double sleeve my cards i will use Timewalker Perfect fit sleeves for it. I found them almost same quality as KMC Perfect fit for half the price.
