Hello!

I'm a new player and I bought a copy of the core set, considering that I will play for fun most of the time and it might take a while before I decide to buy two more copies of the core set, I was wondering which packs I may buy to improve a little a Dragon deck (and maybe have already something for a Crane and/or Phoenix deck). Are there packs of either cycle which are better than others to improve these clans?

 

I know it might be better to have three core sets first but I prefer to wait to see if I'm lucky enough to find them at a low price.

 

Thank you for your help!

I'd highly recommend a 2nd core set as your first investment. It will provide quite a bit of flexibility in deck building and let you try more things than 2-3 dynasty packs would (comparing similar spend)

If you enjoy Phoenix, definitely get their clan pack as it will give you lots to play with.

The individual dynasty packs provide 2-3 cards per clan so spot the cards you like and grab that pack.

I'm not a Dragon player, but here's the ones that I would say are helpful:

The Chrysanthemum Throne - Agasha Sumiko, Centipede Tattoo, Gaijin Customs, Mountaintop Statuary, The Imperial Palace.

 

Tainted Lands - Adopted Kin, Impulsive Novice, Spreading the Darkness.

 

Breath of the Kami - Ancient Master, Hurricane Punch, Sacred Sanctuary.

 

All and Nothing - Togashi Mitsu, Void Fist.

 

Into The Forbidden City - Censure, Feast or Famine.

 

Tears of Amaratsu - Finger of Jade.

 

Meditations on the Ephemeral - A Legion of One

 

For Honour and Glory - Pathfinder's Blade.

 

The Fires Within - Master Alchemist.

 

The Ebb and Flow - Volcanic Troll.

Thank you, ok so a second core set will be the first investment. After that, I will buy a clan pack of the Phoenix Clan!

Thank you for this list! I will definitely take a Chrysantemum throne pack, I will check the other packs and choose.

It really depends what role we get from the World Championship (Winter Court). The packs you Need for neutrals and Dragon Cards are as followed:

 

1) Tears of Amaterasu: Finger of Jade

2) Into the Forbidden City: Censure, Feast or Famine (which we probably won't be able to play after Winter Court until the next role selection)

3) The Chrysanthemum Throne: Agasha Sumiko, The Imperial Palace

4) Meditation on the Ephereal: Seal of the Dragon

5) Breath of the Kami: Ancient Master, Hurricane Punch, Sacred Sanctuary

6) The Fires Within: Master Alchemist

7) All or Nothing: Void Punch, Togashi Mitsu

 

For the rest I would wait until the Winter Court.

Now I have a second core set, I started to play with my girlfriend with Phoenix and Dragon decks of 30 cards instead of 40, just to have fun while learning the rules. Even though she almost won (we didn't end the fight because it was really late in the evening)  she found her deck lacking in military power. I hope the Clan pack will help this side of the Phoenix Clan.

 

Now I will play a few games to learn the rules and then I will start buying the expansion packs...
