Recent Budget Decks
It's been a while since the previous guide that went through building a deck on a budget, and this portion of the Quick Start Guide will serve mainly as a wrap-up so we can move on to other topics.

As a paid player who'd crafted complete sets of each card in the game, when Set 4 landed I faced the prospect of farming over 30 new rares (to say nothing of legendaries) just to keep my experiments viable enough to play in ranked.
