This is a guide that focuses on the very basics of deck building. The stickies here aren't really comprehensive enough when it comes to covering what a new player should look for. Hopefully this will be a lot more helpful to confused newbies. :)
1. Star Values
2. Before You start to Build
3. Building A Balanced Deck
4. Advanced Deck Building Techniques
5. What's Next?
I'm totaly new here and I'm in the process of learning about the gameplay. What I can't find is a decent explenation about Leader cards and their mechanics. For example i was in a game yesterday and my Timber won against a higher attack opponent (pills calculation included). I think it was 24 vs 15... And as Timber was about to lose suddenly he couldn't take more damage.
Can anyone explain this please?
You were in a random room. Random rooms mean that higher attacks only have a better chance of winning, it's not exculsive to Leader cards.
Non random rooms mean highest attack ALWAYS wins.
You can select which type to play in at the top of the lobby, or set the default in your profile.
Lets say I have 60 or 70 cards . . . is it possible or should I build 6 or seven decks of 10? if so how?
Well also you should choose clans that you are comfortable playing with, and can win with 80% of the time. Test out your newly made decks BEFORE entering the mode you want to play. Pm a friend or something, but play at least 5 rounds with the deck as practice and record any decks you lost against and see if there is any way you can cover that weakness. Once you have a good deck built play it. Also another valuable lesson this person has to say. Money DOES NOT mean good. As shown before in Shadow council's guide (nice guide btw) Even low priced cards can beat high priced cards. I'm sure you've heard of something called the Roots being inexpensive? Noodile-600, Yookie-500, Rico-300, Miken Moose-200, You'll spend maybe 1.6k on this half deck and it is one of the best halves in the game. Finally read the reviews on the cards before you buy them, the most famous reviewer (mostly) is Slify, and he pretty much gives accurate ratings of the cards and if they are worth your oney. Hope I helped
Shadowcouncil, this was a very great guide!! Not only does it help new players, but it's also good for veteran players to brush up on the basics in deck building. I definitely reccomend this to other players!!
