Is there a 1-3 star counterpart of Shin or Bringer? Of the proxies? Of Eskatia (there actually is a 1-star counterpart to Verlaat in Set 6 called Folrart standard bearer, but one dragon breath deals with him as opposed to verlaat)?
Let me be clear, my "ideal" situation is one in which the average consumer could get everything for a reasonable price, its something I've argued for for some time, even started a strike over at one time. I've also never been opposed to other methods of revenue generation such as through ad banners so that all players, even free players, might be able to get access to a solid number of new playable cards much more quickly and easily. These ideas are already out there and have been out there for a long time, and should they ever actually get enacted, you better believe I'll be tickled pink with excitement about it.
But again, they have been out there for a LONG time, it seems very VERY likely that those sort of changes just aren't going to happen. I could keep bringing the subjects up or complaining incessantly, but that would solve nothing, they already know of the suggestions and how passionate I am about them. Instead I choose to look for alternate solutions, ones that aren't ideal, that make concessions (in this case giving up 4*s and 5*s), but that might still give me, and players like me, enough in return for making those concessions to make us happier with things then we are at present. That's what this idea is all about. Will it suck to be handicapped by not having 4*s and 5*s like the big spenders do, sure, but right now I'm handicapped by having none of the new set cards of ANY rarity because you have to spend ridiculously large amounts of money to even get playsets of low rarity cards. Thats what this suggestion hopes to fix, to let some one who is free player and saves for a bit, or some one who spends but only in amounts one would expect to spend on a game or expansion, get access to MOST of the cards in a set.

My only concern is what are the purpose of the silver box? I would much rather sacrifice the slim chance of a 4 and 5* in regular pack for the higher chance of getting 3*s in bronze box or save up and go for the gold one with the guaranteed 4 and 5*.
I admit I can't see myself spending on the silver box... but then I can't see myself spending on normal boxes right now either, and that's what the silver box is. But some people are spending on the normal boxes, so obviously some people do like the value the silver box provides. It also exists for those that are resistant to change, who like things as they are now. By its existence if there are people who aren't interested in the gold box or bronze box then the addition of those boxes doesn't hurt them at all, it assures that everyone is happy, or at least that no one is upset that they're preferred box disappeared.
Anyway glad to hear you like the idea overall though
