Deck Requirements

A legal deck must have at least 50 scrolls and no more than 3 copies of any one scroll.

Preconstructed Decks

Main article: Preconstructed deck

You start with 1 preconstructed deck which you choose out of the following 4 when you first start the game and cannot be changed after you have selected it. You also cannot trade or sell scrolls from this preconstructed deck.

The other three preconstructed decks can be bought at the store with gold or shards. Cards from preconstructed decks you buy (i.e. except for your starting deck) can be traded or sold normally.

In the store, there are also two mixed preconstructed decks and four decks featuring the champion of each faction, whose price is slightly higher than the one of the mono-resource decks.

Preconstructed decks can only be bought once, even if you sell or trade all of their scrolls. Similarly, you cannot buy your starting deck again.

Color Distribution

Mono Decks

Mono-resource decks are exclusively composed of scrolls of one resource (or color). This is usually the easiest way to create a good deck as the scrolls will interact with each other well and you only have to sacrifice for one type of resources.

Mixed Decks

Mixed decks are made up of roughly equal parts of two or more types of resources in order to take advantage of specific combos and strategies that aren't possible with mono-resource decks. Mixed decks will often use memorials to help with getting enough of each resource.

Splash Decks

Splash decks are somewhere in between mixed and mono decks. They are mostly made up of one type of resources, but with a "splash" of another, sometimes only one or two scrolls from the resource being splashed. This is done to take advantage of a powerful scroll of another resource, usually a resource-cheap one like Pother or Potion of Resistance.

Deck Types

Aggro

An aggro deck aims to win by using creatures to deal enough damage to win the game as fast as possible, ignoring its opponent and their strategy as much as possible.

Example scrolls: Kinfolk Brave, Focus, Copper Automaton.

Combo

A combo deck aims to win by using a combination of two or more scrolls that interact to produce a powerful effect that can win the game outright or produce a game state that will lead to a victory eventually.

Example scrolls: Nutrition, Faith Chains, End of Reason.

Control

A control deck aims to win by stalling out the game for long enough that it can win by playing more and better scrolls than its opponent.

Example scrolls: Quake, Imperial Resources, Thunder Surge.

Draw

A draw deck aims to win by using multiple draw scrolls to maintain card advantage and cycle through the deck as quickly as possible.

Example scrolls: Fertile Soil, Pother, Clock Library

Tempo

A tempo deck aims to win by establishing and maintaining a pace in the game where it will deal enough damage to win before its opponent can.

Example scrolls: Kinfolk Veteran, Pushback, Bombard.
