For the player who wants to play creatures and attack. This deck is easier to play than the others. It's all about Knights and Equipment.
After we settled on the topline strategies for the decks, I had our external contractors build initial lists, and we started playtesting. From there, we discovered the decks' weaknesses and holes, and designed cards to fill them.
One thing that is true of Brawl is that the power level is inherently lower than Standard, since you only get access to one of each card. Because of that, games tend to stall out quickly. We wanted to make sure each deck had the right finishers and the right amount of card flow. That's the main reason for most of the designs.
Secondly, since these new cards were not going to be in ELD Draft Booster packs (they will, however, be in Collector Boosters), we had to be careful about their power level for Standard. If these cards were top-tier Standard cards, then card availability may have been an issue. However, we wanted to make cool and powerful cards that had appeal in Brawl and Commander. Our strategy was to make the cards more multiplayer-focused.
I'll be back in a bit with some card stories. But for now, back to you, Gavin!
