Been playing a few weeks on the ipad and I'v recently unlocked all of the Exalted Darkness deck but I'm having a hard time figuring out what cards to keep in a deck. You guys take out cards so that your deck has only 60, right? Is there somewhere online that I can see. I see all kinds of decks online for regular MTG but not for DOTPW. I'm guessing this is becuase this isn't really full deck-buiding but doesn't it still make a big difference what cards I have in my library?
Try this thread.
There's a list of deckbuilds here that a forum member put together - it has one decent build for every deck:
Otherwise, you can search the forum - type 'nefarox exalted darkness deck list' in the search box, and you should be able to find the thread devoted to it. The search function is a pain though and it could take some time to find what you want.
You can also google "exalted darkness guide".. some vids from youtube or links from toptiertactics or wizard forum would appear...
Here are a couple links that might be useful:
Beginners' Guide: Flinging Fire in Duels 2013 - This article goes through the Born of Flame deck with beginner players in mind. It has a few strategy tips that apply to pretty much all decks.
Does anyone know of a good summary somewhere of when to mulligan that isn't a 14 minute video?
I just went through and looked at mobius's 1v1 guide and they all seem to be pretty solid deck builds though I can't tell if his Jace build is control or mill. After lots of trial and error, many of mine are similar with a couple of differences (e.g. +2 Hostility in Born of Flame).
Though honestly, keep playing and watching how opponents run their decks and what they do. Seems to be the best way to actually learn the game rather than reading stats and deck-lists online---even though this is ever so helpful.
Personally, I like to make my own builds, I don't pay much attention to others. I'll happily hear any advice and opinons, and sometimes change my deck to reflect that, but the best advice I can give to you is to just look through and ask yourself about each card, 'do I need this? Can I live without it? Are there better options, and how often will I get to use it how I want to, and how often will it just be a useless card?' After thinking on it a little, you should be able to come to your own conclusions.
Althought tedious, unlocking each deck's card one by one was a great help to me. Every time I got a new card, I had to decide what to cut. While playing, every time I drew a card I tried to remember if it was a relief or a burden that I drew it. I also watched to see which cards were just sitting in my hand for long periods of time.
I think the only deck that turned out different than I wanted was Jace's. I really want to run that as a turbo mill, but it keeps turning into the control version. Since I think other decks are much better at control, I wish I could figure out an OK turbo mill build.
The problem I have with the turbo mill build is that it depends on forcing your opponent to draw a lot of cards. I really hate giving an opponent more resources to work with.
I have quite a lot of success with this aggro version of the deck in Ranked matches. It certainly worked a lot better than any of the control versions of the deck I tried. It can rack up some very fast wins and will often squash flat slow developing decks before they can get going. It is very weak against certain deck types however, Goblin Gangland and the New Aura deck to name two. Still I would recomend it as a decent starting point for you to fine tune to fit your style.
In this version of the deck 2 Land hands are fine but mulligan anything with less than 2 or more than 4 lands or any draws where the mana available doesn't match weenies in your hand ie: 2 B when you have only small white weenies in hand.
