Newbie question:

 

I've been doing some research to try and figure out exactly which Warpacks I'm going to fit into my limited  budget, but I wanted to clarify with the community to make sure I'm not getting things confused.

 

I was checking out the packs of the Warlord Cycle and it seems there are some great cards in there. However, I noticed that Cardgamedb states that for many of these great cards (e.g. Crushing Blow, Klaivex Warleader, Ammo Depot, Primal Howl, To arms, Warlock Destructor, etc) the packs only include one copy of each, while the packs of the Planetfall Cycle seem to include three copies of every card (apart from signature squad cards). Is that right?

 

In other words, if I want three copies of Klaivex Warleader do I have to buy three packs of "The Scourge"?

 

Thanks in advance.

Pretty sure every warpack has 3 of each card except sig squads

I thought so too, but the cardgamedb database got me confused. Take for example the Klaivex Warleader:
 

 

Faction: Dark Eldar
Type: Army Unit
Cost: 4
Command Icons: 2 
Attack: 3 
HP: 3 
Card Text: Warrior.
Ambush. Reaction: After you deploy this unit during the combat phase, destroy a target damaged army unit at this planet. 
Signature/Loyal: Loyal 
Set: The Scourge
Number: 0036
Quantity: 1

I'm not sure why the databse says that, but there are three copies in each warpack. There is a full playset of each card in every expansion EXCEPT the Coreset.

I guess it might just be a typo that was overlooked for all these years. Strange no one noticed it before.

Yeah it's a typo. To expand on SlaaneshDevotee's point, all warpacks and deluxe boxes include 3x of each card, whilst the core set (and only the core set) contains 1-2x each card (more specifically, 1x everything bar the neutrals and 2 specific cards per faction, which are 2x each)

I was doing the same research when I started out and noticed the same thing. I almost bought 3 of packs of "Gift of the Ethereals".

Thanks for the info guys, now I can properly choose what to buy.

Hope that didn't happen, it would suck.

I got an extra Scourge by mistake when I was first getting sets (ordering online as I couldn't find a local shop that had 'em, forgot what I'd already ordered...)

If each scourge had only 1 klaivex ffg would have tripled sales on that pack
