Current StaffEdit


All decks on 5"x7.5" are worth 1. But some card types are much rarer than others. Players are only allowed to trade cards of matching rarities. (ex. a base card can only be traded for another base, rare for rare, promo for promo, scene for swatch, etc.)

Base CardsEdit

The most common type, 20 cards per set. (Rarity of 1)

Rare CardsEdit

6x as rare, 10 cards per set. (Rarity of 2)

Swatch CardsEdit

9x as rare, 5 cards per set. (Rarity of 3) Every deck also has 1-3 swatch variant cards available. These cards have the same images as a swatch card, but have a different image in the swatch box. These variants are much rarer than their normal versions. For mastering the normal and variant are considered the same card, so only one is needed.

Scene CardsEdit

9x as rare, 5 cards per set. (Rarity of 3)

Promo CardsEdit

The rarest kind, 5 per set. (No defined rarity)
