And as there may be 1 or 2 new releases for the beta, there will be about 200-300 cards for the official release of Scrolls.
This kind of makes me sad, as 200-300 cards is not very many. Not for the start of a game, at least. I'm certainly expecting 500+ for the start of the game.
I guess I'm still trying to compare this to M:tG that has something like 13,000 different cards. Ha ha.
Hehe, I understand your point, sort of... of course I also would like to see some more cards. And I guess the first thought of most people is: The more the better. However if I think about that issue a little more, that's not my cup of tea anymore...
I think 200-300 cards is by far enough to start with, since Scrolls will be a completely new game and first we have to get comfortable with all the game elements and yeah... simply understand how that game works in detail slowly. The more cards you have the more complicated that will be, so in the end you won't really be able to concentrate on the game itself if there are instantly hundreds of new cards.
Don't worry, new cards probably will
come quite soon after release. MtG is 18 years old now (wow O.o that's actually older than I expected) and perhaps in 18 years Scrolls will also provide an total amount of 13000 different cards
