    Talking New Player Looking for Deck Critique

    Hello,

    I have made a move from playing Stormfall for over 2 years to this game which I love so far. I am one of the older players in this group I am sure so it might take me a little longer to get into the swing of things than the younger gen. Please critique my deck below. I think I like the control style of play the best for now. This is my first card style online game. Thanks for any tips and advice!

    1x Jasmine Rosecult
    1x Dirk Saber
    2x Sandra Trueblade

    3x Puwen Bloodhelm
    1x Birgitte Skullborn
    3x Blake Windrunner
    1x Raven Wildheart
    3x Aldon the Brave
    1x Marshland Sentinel
    1x Tainted Oracle
    1x Aeon Stormcaller

    ***Abilities (18)***
    2x Valiant Defender
    1x Smashing Blow
    4x Enrage
    1x Crippling Blow
    1x Rampage
    1x Shield Bash
    1x Retreat!
    1x Special Delivery
    2x Honored Dead
    1x Drain Power
    1x Extra Sharp

    TOTAL: 40 cards + Hero

    Hey Sam welcome to shadow era. For starters you gotta build up your library by aiming tour deck for a certain goal which you are familiar with
    Go to strategy section of this forums and find a Boris deck that interests you most and build up to that till you understand the game better.
    That way you can build cool stuff later on
    But if you wanna grind gold i recommend eladwyn as a good hero to start with

    Hi samantha !! (are you a girl? O: )
    First thing, WELCOME TO Shadow Era Forum!

    Thining that you probably dont have yet gold for buy too many cards, let me give u some tips.

    1) Read the posts for newbies about how to get gold and crystals fast =)
    If you are agree with use real money, probably you best option for a fast upgrade in your card's Library is the promo by Chrismast: "Give a Gift of Shadow Era"
    you can check the online Store HERE

    This is a excelent way of get your first competitive deck, cuz you get packs, and crystals, with crystals you can buy too many basic decks, sell them and get gold for buy cards (READ THIS )

    2) About your deck, i recomend you try detect the essential cards in your deck for control. REMOVE the rest, and try buy more copies of the key cards.
    With 1 of each, is too hard for you draw the card when you need it.

    40-45 cards
    4 copies for critical essential cards: Example Crippling Blow
    3 for usefull but not essential: Example Aldon the Brave (if you get 2 at same time is useless)
    2 for usefull but specific use cards: Smashing Blow
    1 for Cards that you only need once, and can do the difference vs specific decks, or in late game: Example Enrage

    This is only a reference, you can ofc add more or less cards of every tipe, this depends about your style and strategy, but is a good reference for start to planing your future deck

    PD: Important TIP for Boris. Add something for clean 5cc alliest or more: Example Dragon's Tooth. Try allways keep control without spend the boris skill.

    Check the STRATEGY forum, and Good luck! / Happy New Year!!

    Greetings Sam,
    I'll bet you 100SC I'm older, but that doesn't matter.

    I really suggest you look in the strategy section and then begin to cut your deck way down , much closer to 40 cards. You'll find many warrior decks there. Also if you wish join us on telegram, it's a chat app and almost all SE players chat there in real time, we could help you faster that way, and you get to know your cards much faster.
    Look in the new players section for , the Telegram thread.
    But anyway, welcome to the game and the forums. We are a very helpful community,.
    It's great.
    See ya soon.

    welcome to the community Samantha. I agree with the others, take a look at some pre posted decks. Any that are listed as playing at a rating over 300 should be a great spot to start. Since you are newer you will probably have to slowly get all the cards needed, so just substitute as best as you can in the mean time.

    Hello welcome to the game and the forums!
    Your deck seems needs a lot work to do.
    I think the priority will be adding some draw. Warrior class has a powerful draw called Blood Frenzy. It gives you an extra card every turn.
    Shadow Era just released a new expansion Lost Lands, introduced a few new mechanisms such as location cards.
    I think you can wait a few days untill the meta settles down and then decide which cards to buy.
    Cheers!

    Thanks for the welcome and yep I am a female. Are there others? So in the strategy the warrior link is broken so I am trying to find some example Boris decks but not ssure how good they are. I have beaten most of the AI's with my newbie deck (beginner's luck?) and had a tough real match with a Nishaven hero deck and we ended up with 1 hero life left each and then he got me.

    My goal is hybrid I think? I kinda like some of my cards so would like to rearrange what I have and get more copies of some and remove others. In other words edit my current deck with some additions/deletions without a huge change. Is that possible or is it a really non-competitive deck?

    DP we posted at the exact same time.
    Yes I have some blood frenzy I can put in. I fear the hero losing his health at this stage of my game tho which is why they aren't in there. Lol.

    What are location cards?

    I can see I need to remove at least 3 of the enrage also.
