Tips for a Beginner?

General forum

Posted on Feb. 21, 2016, 5:26 p.m. by Leone


I've recently joined TO's Force of Will Deck Building site*,but I'm also on TO's MTG site.I've never made a thread before,so please bear with me.

I've recently decided to finally get into Force of Will,and I was wondering if there's any way to learn and start playing without a 20$ Starter deck?Is it possible to create your own for at least 10$?If so,what are your suggestions?

*I never knew TO had a FoW Deck Builder site until I scrolled all the way to the bottom to see "FOW Deck Builder".I was looking for FOW Deck Building websites almost the entire day for a 10$ deck for a beginner,but didn't think TO had one until earlier.I feel like an idiot.

Edit:What are the basics of FOW?

The newer decks are pretty much worth it, for learning.If you want something you can try to build yourself, buy any Booster Box, and you can usually build a deck right off.

This post was made back when I wanted to learn how to play.I finally learned on Saturday.Well,when The Moonlit Savior had it's prerelease.The deck I'll be working on now is with Timeline Arsonist.I'll buy booster packs from time to time.

Leone How do you want to build the timeline Arsonist? what's been floating around was a way to somehow cheat into play Ouroboros, the Snake of Reincarnation causing a very fast J-activate. Though that's a bit too combo focused for some people's liking.

The way I want to build him is very simple,but seemingly too simple,because it could become a copied deck very fast.Yeah,I am planning to run Ouroboros, the Snake of Reincarnation,but after his effect comes into place,I need to choose what cards I want out of my exiled area carefully.Mainly one of the three Goddesses in TMS.I'm fond of the combo,but I'm not going to base it around it.At the most,I'll be running 2-3 Ouroboros, the Snake of Reincarnation.

Waiting for TO to update the database so I can put the deck on TO.

Blazer, the Eater of Dimensions might go in as well.

Leone if your deck becomes copied and played by others don't take it as an insult think of it as a compliment that you brewed something up that is a recipe for success :). Blazer, the Eater of Dimensions also seems like a fine choice. are you trying to stay 1 color or are you willing to go 2? The reason I ask is Split Heaven and Earth is both a powerful tool to use and painful to go up against.

Oh nonon!By that,I meant that it'd be boring by having a mirror match.I'm planning to only go with Fire/Red because I can't think of anything else that would go well with the theme except Lumia, the Creator of Hope.

Are elves viable at all? Sorry new to the FOW scene but love the artwork as well as the gameplay.
