Best low cost singles and deck modifications to make to legendary M/Z decks in order to play reasonably well for casual and low competitive play.
So, played base to fossil and rocket at the dawn of time- and dropped CCG’s for a long while. Recently got into MTG with Miss West, and we collected two ravnicia guilds (Boros and Orzhov) and promptly stopped spending money while enjoying two highly themed decks that play well against one another.
She is very much into Pokemon Go, and when we saw the legendary packs while shopping for kitchen supplies at target- I impulse bought the two packs. We have played the contents a few times, and are getting a generally good experience- fortunately we could recall enough from our childhoods that we could play reasonably well- and I got to say these intro sets are really lovely.
I would like to copy much of what we did with MTG and make some intresting and entertaining decks that allow for some play. I have researched team plasma a little, they seem like jerks but I’m enjoying the theme.
I’m going to start with my deck first because I am familiar with it. However I am a new player, so please be nice.
My first impression was to purchase a second Moltres starter, allowing me to pair up diffrent Eevee’s strategically and focusing on letting the monkeys do the hard work. Also the deck seems to come with a decent set of support/trainer cards that are “plasma themed” with focus on card pickup and fetching needed Pokemon. It’s a decent starting tool kit, but I don’t require doubles of most of the cards.
Like any introductory pack the individual cards are limited to 1-2 copies making the game feel more random. Also the support cards seem lacking, and I don’t quite understand how to get the most of plasma cards/ synergy in gameplay.
It occurred to me that other players may already have thought of the problem- and I would be intrested to hear opinions/diffrent points of view.
