I was sorting through the presets today and noticed that pretty much everything that's highly rated uses cards that a new player wouldn't be able to get w/o spending a lot of money on packs. I think we should change that! Let's help out new players by posting good, inexpensive decks that they can use!
Post a low cost deck (<7.5k @ current market price), include "for new players" in its name, and link to the preset in this thread. I'll give 5k to the person who posts the best deck. This will be a totally subjective determination; I won't pay much attention to the ratings. I'm running a parallel contest for players in my guild. Members of Wise Men Distracted are NOT eligible for this contest. Only 1 entry per player. If you post two decks, I'll only look at the first. Contest will close @ noon EDT on Monday.
My entry (which won't be the winner) is here: Cheap Wins for New Players
Good luck everyone!
Cheers Tanto, tbh I looked at a deck similar to that but could never afford it.
(Just totalled up your deck and with fluctuating prices it currently comes to ~8.7k D: )
I guess that's mainly due to petra sitting at 2k and ratanah at 3.2k. :3
Congrats to Apricotsoup. There were lots of good decks put forth for this contest. I tried to look at them all and was impressed by the variety and creativity I saw.
And thanks to akuaku WMD for holding this contest. The acknowledgement of your peers is quite rewarding indeed.
And I'd like to thank the academy...jk
Oh I forgot: @Akuaku WMD Uppers - Montana give you Ottavia, Mona and Rubie pretty quick. If you want Sharon too. So, upgrading it isn't too hard. But I agree, Zatman and Jackie and especially Vickie are quite expensive and take a while.
Anyways, thx again for the contest and gz to the winners.
