Really Nice Games Shop

Wanted to make a streamlined deck I could take to my local game night for teaching new players. I realise this is a little stripped back compared to a lot of the decks on here, but I didn't want to make it too complex for people just starting out. :) The only trouble I foresee is it might be a little bit too quick to shuffle, since it's such a tiny deck, so you have to make sure you're thorough when you reset for a new game!

If you decide to decktest this, please let me know. Ideally, this should be paired against @alientoyshop's runner deck, for a nice beginner-friendly matchup.

Edit: loves this.

I think you could maybe go -1 Wall of Thorns, you've got 65 other barriers in there already which should be enough, but test and see

@lolpaca Hmm, will have to test. That's a pretty big change... you really want to draw that Wall of Thorns pretty early, so it's worth a 3-of I think. Will give it a shot though.

I reckon the other two domestic sleepers would probably work nicely here too?

@behemoth01 Oof, yeah, they were a last-minute cut. They're really strong, but deckslots are super tight when you've streamlined this much.

Might wanna hop on jnet and test it.

Update: Me and @alientoyshop tested this and let me tell you: perfect for beginners. Deck basically plays itself, tbh.

Why only 1 Domestic Sleepers?

12 Mar 2016 bionicsheep

@gandrasch Deckslots. Nothing else I could cut, you know?

Yeah, if you go up to 945 cards you'd need another agenda point

is it tournament legal? i might just sleeve it up and give it a go ! just the shuffle time takes you to a draw at least!

I sleeved this up on and lost both games. Clearly I am no longer a beginner. 10/10 Would lag again.

@fiveplus5is55 Draft format tournament legal. I'd suggest rocking up to a nearby draft tournament with this already sleeved and sitting out the draft stage. Pretty sure that's legal.

@RubbishyUsername You're ready for the big leagues now.
