One phase passes per round each phase can come up a max of 10 times per game

Your deck consists of 30 cards and 5 out of that are the soul cards.
You can customize and change your soul cards BEFORE the match starts (actually in the File room). The soul card order is essential too. But according to my experience, those provided by the starter are already very good!

It's funny, a lot of the guys in the office across from ours had been playing around with Alteil. We gave them a pile of Gran and they all built their decks. Then the Japanese sent us their Starters just two weeks ago, and the Starters were better than most of the decks in the office!

yes, from my experience you can NEVER go wrong with cards from the starter decks.

Well it depends on the card game, some have better starters then others, but I actually have placed quite high in a number of tournaments for card games with nothing more then starters or slightly modified starters.

In this case it sounds like just another example of how powerful experience is. I don't know how many times in the past I'd have new or weak players after losing to me claim it was my expensive cards that gave me my win. I would then proceed to offer them a friendly challenge. They would be given free range to my cards and decks and I would be given free range to their cards and decks, we'd each create decks and play again. In almost every one of these cases I'd end up beating them with their own cards.

My goal wasn't to humilate them, though I'm sure it humbled them a bit, but to prove that atleast in most card games its not about the most expensive cards, but good strategy for both playing the game and building decks. The best way to become good at that is through experience, I'd seen everything in said card game and I thus knew the best ways to make use of their cheap cards, while they were left in awe but confused by my huge and more expensive collection.

it sounds like that was the case here too, the starters might not include all of the most rarest of cards, but they were built by skilled players with years of experience. Conversely the office decks, while given free range to any card of any rarity, were built by beginners who still didn't have a great grasp on the finer details of making a perfect deck.
