View Full Version : does it matter

does it matter what set i decide to create a deck from? the reason behind the question is that i wondered if each faction from an individual set had a play style that defined it for the set and if mixing and matching cards from other sets would throw off that strategy. i know that each faction has universal tactics that make them unique, these can be found in all of the cards for that faction.
i guess an example to go along with my question would be in the case of the bankers. you would find the typical politicians, lawyers and union reps.... (banker theme) then you have...... pirates!?
but i guess that it goes with the different stories that are being told by the cards.

Well, leaving aside the easy comeback that most Bankers, Politicians and Lawyers are at least as "ethically impaired" as pirates . . . let's take a look at your real question - mixing sets when building decks.
If the purity of a story line is important to you, then keep in mind that SEED represents a time well before First Edition. Even our illiterate friends can tell this by looking at the Warlord cards - SEED is mostly Blades, while 1st Ed has Guns, Cannons, and Tanks. (Not that I'm implying any correlation between players who choose to play Warlord and their reading ability :rolleyes: - in honor of a certain judge who shall forever be remembered as the "Prodding Blute")
Perhaps you should stick to SEED constructed format (I doubt there will be much interest in 1st Ed only format in the future - unless the game gets popular enough to hold "vintage" events)
However, one could argue that the variety of play is enhanced in the so-called "Open Constructed" format (permitting any card, except Emergency Obfuscation). Although, I admit that seeing Sam Griswalter and his great (-great?) grandfather in the same deck seems a bit odd.
Have fun and keep playing!
