Subject: Complete Chaotic Deck Builder's Rules   PostPosted: Mon May 19, 2014 5:09 pm Reply with quote

Listed below are the comprehensive rules for building a legal deck (or "army") in Chaotic TCG. I've kept it as short as possible, and provided the code to copy into comments if you so wish, with several visual aids to help with restrictions.

EDIT: Updated version, using the rules verbatim from the rulebook with examples and suggestions from me.

You can play Chaotic with decks of different sizes: 1, 3, and 6 Creature decks are the most common sizes. On this site, you should mostly go for 6 vs 6 decks.

For each Creature Card, also select one Battlegear Card and one Mugic Card. When choosing Battlegear, try to use some that grant additional ability or compensate for a weakness. When choosing Mugic, make sure that your Creatures will be able to cast or use most of them.

Create a 10 card Location Deck. You can use any 10 Location Cards you want as long as you stick to the Rule of Two and do not have multiple copies of Unique or Legendary cards, preferably with Initiative and abilities that compliment your army.

Create a 20 card Attack Deck. The 20 Attack Cards you choose must not exceed 20 Build Points (Build Points of each Attack Card are inside of the starburst icon in the top-left corner). Be sure to choose Attack Cards that will be able to be effectively used by most, if not all of your Creatures.

Rule of Two: You can only have up to two copies of any card in your deck, unless the card itself says otherwise (e.g Maxxor and Maxxor, Protector of Perim are considered copies of the same card for this rule).

Q: Are Creatures with the same name but different statistics considered different Creatures?
A: No. Two Creatures (or cards of any type) are considered to be copies of the same card if they share the same exact name.

Q: Are cards with the same name but different subtitles considered different cards?
A: No. For the "Unique" Rule and the "Rule of Two", cards with the same name but different subtitles are considered to be copies of the same card.

Unique: This ability indicates that only one copy of a card with this ability may be included in a player's deck. This does not include other cards with "Unique" you control that don't have the same name (e.g Lore and Lore, Ancestral Caller would not be allowed in the same army since they are considered copies of the same card, but Hammerdoom Chantcaller and Lord Van Bloot would).

Loyal - [Tribe] [type]: A card with Loyal cannot be played in an army unless all other Creatures in that army share at least one of the same Tribes as the card with "Loyal". If there is a listed Tribe or type designation then all Creatures must share at least one of the listed Tribe or type designations (e.g Chaor would not be allowed in any army with Creatures who aren't of the Underworld tribe).

Legendary: This ability indicates that only one card with the "Legendary" keyword may be included in a player's deck. This does not effect non-"Legendary" copies of a card as long as the other copy doesn't have "Legendary" and still follows the "Rule of Two" and "Unique" Rule (e.g Tangath Toborn, Overworld General and Tangath Toborn, In Training can be in the same army, but Grantkae, Mipedian General and Warriors of Owayki cannot).
