    Default * When to Redraw Cards? *

    At the start of the game, you are dealt 6 cards. Ideally, you want to have a cost 1 creature and a resource to put in the inventory during the set phase. Is the card distribution important, such that you want 2 creatures, 2 tricks and 2 resources?

    Obviously, if you have high cost creatures, or no resources; likely, you would decide to redraw the cards. However, there were instances when I decided to redraw, but the redrawn cards were worse than my first draw, that I felt like kicking myself in the head - why did I do that, lol?

    Does anybody have any advice when to redraw the cards at the start of the game? Thanks.

    There is no way known to really see what cards you get it is RANDOMLY chosen for you by the game.

    After selecting a deck, I agree that the 6 cards are dealt to you randomly. Then, a question will pop up: "Would you like to redraw your hand or keep it?"

    My question is what factors influence players to decide whether to redraw or keep the dealt hand.

    I have one and only one consideration for doing a redraw. Did I draw any cost 1 creatures.

    Yes? Sit pat and hope for better cards when my turn comes around.

    No? Redraw.

    The only exception I have to this rule is if I am using a deck that is heavily dependent (built around) a singular card in order to be effective. A Robgoblin junk pile deck for example. If I drew no cost one creatures but drew a couple of junkpile resources I might be tempted to sit pat because I know I will need those junkpile cards in order to get the maximum use out of my deck.
