I had a guy at my local card club visit sirlingames.com today (he was having trouble finding one of the Codex expansions on Amazon, which made me happy because that means I convinced him it’s a good enough game for him to get his own cards). Yomi caught his eye while he was there, especially since his two favorite heroes from my Codex Core Set (Jaina and Zane) are available in Yomi as well. This brings me to a question, though: What are the best decks for new players?
Before you give an answer, there are some caveats. First, while I have the Steam version, I don’t know if he can/wants to play that way – we both come to the card club to play games in person, and bringing a laptop seems weird in that context (and I don’t think he has an iOS device either). Second, I don’t have any physical decks, and I don’t really want to drop $40 on Yomi Round 1 (or 2) if I could put any of that towards either Pokémon Sun or a Codex expansion, so at least for now I’d prefer to get a standalone deck for myself (and he’d get one for himself too).
With that in mind, what should I do? I know Menelker and Persephone are bad to use against beginners due to how brutal they are when they win, but that leaves 10 standalone decks (no, I’m not getting the Pandánte themed two-pack for a beginner). Any thoughts would be appreciated!
