    Thanks! First Five added to both "Intro" lists. I wish there was a function to import the First Five you choose in the "Costs" tab.

    another good looking deck! perhaps you might consider adding a first five suggestion? for help crafting FF's, i would again suggest the thunder number article

    I think having decks that are simple to play and easy for beginners to learn is a great idea! you may be interested in the phoenixborn++ idea, which was to take a precon deck and swap out up to three cards. I think it only ever happened to Aradel, and that deck can be found here.

    not that I'm saying it is a better idea or that you should do it this way, but I'm all for trying to spread any type of useful information around (hell, that's my main project at the moment, shifting articles from the discontinued strangecopy.com to here. shameless self plug FTW!)

    do you think that this is a good trade off?

    yes I do! teaching new players these sorts of ideas early on is a great way to help new players learn how to play the game well. my only concern with this deck specifically is that they may need to play almost too carefully, since nature [[natural]] dice will be so tight. perhaps swapping out butterfly monks for shadow spirits? again though, your deck and your vision.

    first time messing around with custom decks

    this line, and the fact that you are creating decks for new platers makes me think you are relatively new on the ashes scene yourself. if so, I would suggest joining the slack channel here. it is a great place to talk all things ashes!

    Thanks, angus!

    It is my desire that the decks in this, "Intro," series have both strengths and weaknesses. I want Aradel to feel strong but fair. In this case, she puts a lot of pressure on the board, but has to use her resources intelligently.

    As a more experienced player, do you think that this is a good trade-off?

    Again, thank you for your feedback!

    I really like the look of this deck! especially for a 500 tourney.

    no means of dice recursion, and little in the way of draw

    I wouldn't really worry about the draw. i dont remember who said it, but draw is a nice bonus sometimes, but rarely ever necessary. with a spellboard and five cards in hand, it is very unusual to have many dice left over. also, you are running [[illusion]] and [[natural]], the two most ubiquitous (and IMO best) dice powers in the game, so it should be easy to use any spare dice like that.

    the dice recursion is something worth thinking about though. i understand space is tight in 500, but with a spellboard that requires 6 [[natural]]/[[natural:class]] dice when fully focused, and an ability that also requires [[natural:class]], you really don't have much wiggle room, especially when you start considering cards in hand. for more information, i would suggest this article about thunder numbers and dice counting.

    endlessly defending is gobi's job, and I don't need a rhino to do it too.

    If you are looking for guards, I guess Summon Turtle Guard is a good choice for you. Its kinda tough and can help with the Rhino problem.

    And Its a good idea to replace Spiked Armor with some AOE effect cards like Nature's Wrath or Mist Typhoon which can help to deal with aggo rush early decks since your Rhino is kinda solid to take a small damage of that.
