Very helpful thread here...thanks for all the insights. Both me and my 7 year old son are new to PTCG (1 week in) and very excited about getting going with building some custom decks...we went through a trainer set and currently playing with one of the Battle sets, but now ready to build our own decks and be able to play in some tournaments. Knowing my costs will be doubled, it is an easy decision to not splurge and put lele's in his decks, and I'm 50/50 currently on if I will do that, so this thread has given me some great ideas. A few posts back, it was also helpful to see some potential sets for a younger kid to play and continue to learn with. So I would love any continued feedback on how I should go about building a deck for my young son and myself as well... Great community here...glad I found this forum!
