Hi greatdane,

An impulse buy for me was the Golder Rider. I needed a new RWS deck and this was the only one they had in store at the time. (It was just a tiny arcade shop). I had never seen this deck before and I bought it on a 'one glance' look of the backs of the cards alone - stupid! But, it has turned out to be one of my best deck buys - it's the only RWS deck that works for me.

On the other hand, there are decks I have carefully thought about - taking my time to look at the cards online and read the reviews of 'others' - only to buy them and find myself disappointed. I've come to the conclusion that if I think too much about a deck, it probably isn't going to work for 'me'.

So 'impulse' purchases are not always a bad thing. On 2 occasions now I feel I was led to the decks I was meant to have - both purchased in a physical store, and neither deck falls under the 'popular banner'.

Now I know to avoid being swayed by popularity or because it's a special edition etc. (e.g. PCS Commemorative set was a bad buy for me) or what others necessarily think about a deck. Yes, it's always nice to hear what others think and feel about a deck, but I know I must choose based on what 'I feel'.
