That Awkward Moment When You Build Your Deck...
« on: August 10, 2014, 12:56:28 PM »
So, even though I'm mostly going to miss Raw Deal events this coming week at Gencon, I still decided to sit down today to take my decks that I'd been working on and playtesting in Lackey, and build them physically so I'd have them to at least possibly play even if only in side games Thursday Night.

And everything's going well, I'm doing the (probably ill-advised) thing where you go 'wait, what? No, that card doesn't need to be in here, and I don't have any X!'

Then I hit my Revo deck, and I discover that one of the important Pre-Match cards for it... I don't even own. And I could've sworn I did! But it is nowhere to be found.

Please tell me I'm not the only person to have done this.

All the time bro, all the time.

Hell, two of the three decks that got me Top 4 last year in Worlds were that same way.  Stupid Revo cards I couldn't find.

Never really been a problem... something about ensuring that I have a playset of all the cards. It's just the problem of locating the card within everything.

This is the EXACT reason I have a borderline-OCD way or sorting and organizing my cards in the boxes so I know EXACTLY where it all is...I need a hold...it's there....chain card.....pre-match....its a painful effort (and I have to re-do it once a year as half the cards end up on the kitchen table....especially this year)....but its sooo worth the peace of mind of KNOWING its there when I'm making a deck :)

Outside of my own building I had a couple of other people building out of my collection.

They promised to help sort the cards, and put stuff back in order.

I have several 2000 card boxes that has their deck remnants and stuff they pulled to build with sitting in there.

This.

I'll set aside decks to be taken apart, and when I do, everything gets filed back in place, sleeves go back in the drawer, etc.  Takes time, but it's worth it when it's time to build a deck.  :)

I just leave every deck built so I only have to sort when I update. I don't even want to know how much I've spent on sleeves and deck boxes. Virtual Raw Deal isn't so free for me :/
