I have a good number of items but am never sure what I should include in the deck. When I play, there is never a specific item type I need every game, except maybe defensive. So to be more specific, my questions are: In general: how many items do you want in your deck (I currently have 10ish) what kind of items do you want? offensive? defensive? misc.? what kind of mix and same as above for each NPC
I don't have many rare items yet so if you know non-R items to suggest, that'd be great.
All of the info. I'm about to write is completely dependant on the deck you use. I have some decks with no offensive at all.
For a generic deck, I tend to use about 10-12 items. Usually I split it up between offensive and defensive items. For defense items, I always use Counter Amulets. Depending on the rest of the deck, I may use elemental shields, Shadow Armor, or Gaseous Foam.
Offensive items are pretty standard, usually. I use Masamune in lots of decks. Sometimes I use Heart Fibula, Water Amulet, Fire Amulet, and Terriar (Yellow God card).
Thats all I can think of off the top of my head. Maybe that helped. Lots of people use other items, but those are the ones I have come to enjoy. It's really a matter of preference, and what your trying to get out of the book.

Almost all my decks have 10-13 items, since I've been playing a good long time, I really only use Claymores for offensive, and I'm with Ace here on the Counter Amulets with occasional gaseous forms for Defensive, Always have the Talisman which is the best item evar, sometimes the colored shields and an occasional Plate Armor, Mujina's Mask or Gremlin Amulet. In 1 out of every 5 decks, Ill put in a Nucleur Fission or two since the item can basically take any level 5 land without incident.
You'll get $10 bucks if you admit to wearing briefs, $20 if you can prove it. PM me for details.
Wow, that is a tough question. I have played up to the part where Ryvern teams up with Gemelegh (however you spell his &*$@ name. What I have learned is that there are so many combinations even with one character that it is very difficult to know how to fix it. Sometimes it is luck, sometimes it requires a strategy. For example, when I play Selena, I know that she likes Christmas...red and green. I like to put 2 Ice Storms in my deck and let her put her Cat Siths, Minotaurs and other reds out there and level them up. If I can get my 2 Ice Storms together, I can wipe her clean. I also add a few magic bolts just in case, and an evil blast, as well as some cards to help paralyze. This is for the green creatures. But for this to work, I take out all my red and greens. I have had great success with this, but there could also be 100 other ways to do it. With so many cards in Culdcept, it is hard to really put a science on it. Try different combinations, you'll find a winner.
