Luck vs Strategy?

One of the things some CCGs have been criticized for is that players with money to build decks of super-cards are at a distinct advantage. In other words: he who has the most money wins, because he can buy the best cards. Not totally true (because players also need to play their cards well), but you...

A better way to learn would be to browse through the forums here and (even better) sign onto GCCG sometime to play some tutorial games. It's free and a lot of fun -- and, what's more, it puts you in touch with a worldwide community of MECCG players. Thanks for the replies so far! What exactly is me...

Is NetMECCG easier to use in this respect? I realize that the graphics of GCCG are hard to beat, but I'm thinking more about ...

If I was just to go for the five hero Challenge decks, what kind of replay value would the game have?

Please pardon my ignorance, but what is the book "Wizard's Companion" about? Rules? Strategy? Decks? Don't forget I'm new to the game, so I may need considerable help in mastering the rules, and that is one reason I was considering this book. (Note also that I'm planning on starting with the Challen...

Books: Wizard's Companion

Can anyone tell me some more about the book "Wizard's Companion"? It's by C. Charlton (ed) et al (104 pages), and apparently gives the rules, and cards lists.
