Beginner wants to learn to play Res Arcana

Post by felipe1982 »

I'm wondering if anybody here would like to help me get better at RA. Perhaps by playing and coaching me?

Do the maths, it's more of a maths puzzle as there is very little player interaction with attacking/defending. The game gets real old, real quick.
You can almost plan your complete game from the draft, especially after you see your 1st 3 cards. Look for combos and synergy.
Which PoP are you going to use to victory, or is it just monuments (with Athanor or Philosophers stone)?

Tapping/Untapping can be strong with Dragons Lair and Catacombs. Alchemist tower can be bought turn1.

Look to see if you can generate 5 or 6 mana from your artifacts/PoP turn 1. 2mana = 1 gold; 4mana = 1VP.
