question-circle Good decks for beginners

Hey there everybody! Me and my buddy have a podcast, and we'd like to learn more about this game so that we can do an episode on it in the future. Which decks would be good for us to learn the basics of this game? I tried to find intro decks on eBay, but a lot of them were in the range of $50 USD, which is a bit more than I'm willing to spend on a single deck. Is there a place where I can get them for less, or would it be better to buy individual cards and assemble a deck that way?

Either buy the recent starters (Black Chantry Productions), or you could print cards yourself.
The former is probably easier.
The Barbed Wire project also comes to mind.

Proxy Demo Decks are a great place to start for learning how to play!

Here are some awesome proxy demo decks local guys did! Of course you can use them as decklists...

Idea is to have limited amount of different cards in the deck. Plus all the cards are simple ones with very little text. Many cardtypes are missing as to streamline the demo and keep it as simple as possible as not to overload them with too much info.


Once the newbies have played a game with these they should have a firm grasp of basic rule mechanics and you can hand slightly more complicated decks to them.


I recommend you keep it short and use just 20 pool.

These are tried and tested in several Ropecon with returning old hands as well as total n00bs.

Amaranth has a page for quickstart decks that arent too complex.
Added bonus of Amaranth being a proxy card print tool - so you can print a deck and sleeve it for like $10
