Deck Builder's Toolkit 2012 (M13 Edition)

Well - as with last years edition it seems no-one has collected all the card lists for this.  Unlike last year I'm going to put them all in one post.  As with last year this set is for starting out players with small collections.  it comprises ENTIRELY of commons and uncommons (and not many uncommons - 2 per colour and then 4 per deck fragment - 26 in total) but the cards contained would be more expensive to buy outside of this pack purely because of the boosters.  The boosters give you another 12+ uncommons and 4+ rares (due to flip cards and foils you can get more than this) and basically make up 80% of the cost of the box.  For me - even if I give most of the cards away this year (which I will likely do) I get the boosters, the cool box and the joy of all this typing again...

See you next year.

The Boosters are Innistrad Block:

Dark Ascension
Avacyn Restored

Credit for the typing up of these goes to the posters in the message board thread below:

I added my own semi-random decks and checked the ones I had.

As you can see of the 11 deck fragments, you have the 5 tribal themes from Innistrad block (vampires, spirits, humans, angels, zombies) - notable for the absence of Werewolves which has been worked into the Midrange Green cards but without any DFC (but you get one in the INN & DKA packs so I'm not sure why this was excluded).  We have the returning mechanic deck in Exalted, the Library Depletion (Mill) and Burn.  The most interesting are the Evasion & Tokens which were not in last years selection but are thematically from the recent block.
