Here's my web page for Jyhad/ VTES - IMHO the best CCG around, or
Why I'm selling all my Magic cards to support my VTES habit ...
- Main Reason - you don't need a lot of $$ to build a good deck. Playing Magic, you'll quickly see that a good deck made up with rare cards will almost always beat a good deck made up of uncommon and common cards. Not so in Jyhad! The base cards are common, the hot/cool cards are uncommon, and the rare cards are not usually game unbalancing, but are usually odd.
- Boredom. Lag. Call it what you will. By a single card draw round, Magic has the "down time" where you wait for a good draw to get something useful/ playable into your hand. Jyhad remains interesting by keeping your hand size to seven. The best way to get more cards is to use the ones you have already.
- Magic encourages conservative play, aka "card hoarding". Since you only draw one card a round, playing three or four cards a round leaves your hand depleated and leaves you open to attacks and spells. Not so in Jyhad. The game is kept interesting and at a faster pace because you replace what you play, and your hand size is always 7 cards. This alone does a lot to keep the game interesting and faster paced.
- In Magic once a player gets ahead & has the advantage, it's very unlikely anyone will come back from it to win the game. In Jyhad, it's not over until it's over.
