We’ve had some great spoilers this week (I know Cassian was kind of spoiled earlier in a magazine, but I want to mention him so we’re going to go with it), so I thought I’d share some of my thoughts, and some decks I’m excited about trying.
Hey guys! Over the course of the summer I (Luke) am planning on writing a few articles about perhaps my favorite part of Destiny: deck building. I spend a lot of time theory crafting and building all kinds of decks, and over the course of many failures and successes I have developed some rules that help me to create decks that run smoothly right off the bat. This is important to me, because with so many different combinations to try out 4 sets into the game, I’d like to be able to get a good feel for the likely success of a deck only a few games into playing it. This is not possible if the decklists are always subpar when first built. So for this first article, I’m going to give a big picture view of what a deck should look like, and talk about deck balance: what kind of cards do you want in your deck, and how many of them do you want?
