What deck builder should I buy next?

I have Ascension and Dominion so far. I've played DCDBG but I didn't really enjoy the few plays. It seemed too long and too similar to Ascension to want to get. I've heard good things about Clank though.

Maybe I should just go for expansions?

Personally I love Dominion and Ascension but hated Clank - too much RNG for my tastes, and I don't like the dungeon crawl element.

Easy advice: more Dominion expansions!

Haha. Which ones would you recommend? I have Dominion: Intrigue already.

Prosperity and Seaside are probably the safest next bets - those are almost universally liked. Empires is supposed to be good, but I've had little personal experience with it. Nocturne is fine, but really adds to the complexity. If you liked Intrigue, Dark Ages will be one you'll enjoy too, I expect.

I keep seeing people recommend Dominion: Seaside Expansion so I think I'll be checking that out next. Thanks for the suggestions!

It was the first expansion they made, so I think it was naturally an extension of the base game illustrating the best ideas the developers had.

I don’t own any Deck builders, what’s a great intro to them?

Dominion it's the grandfather of deck builders and it's most people's favorite for good reason. It's also really easy to teach but has a lot of great strategy elements.

Which edition? There’s loads

Just get the base game 2nd Edition. I probably played it about 40 times before buying my first expansion.

Going to be an odd one out but Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Card Game is a fun wonky deck builder!!!
