Beginners guide "What to craft?"
I know most new players are looking for some sort of list what to craft and of course what not to. Basically a list of useful cards.
Why would I make this list?
First, I've been playing Faeria quite some time since the beta (more than I want to admit). I've reached legend multiple times, also playing Pandora for quite some time. And I like to tinker with decks and strategies.
Secondly I spent hardly any real money into this game; just the 'Faeria - Steam Pack' when alpha released. Not that I don't want to support this awesome game, but never really needed it. Till this stage it is quite grindable. I currently miss 4 Legends (Sharra, Dream (disenchanted after nerf), Ignus and Iona) and just some unplayable epics. But I'm sitting on enough shards to basically play anything.
Also I do recommend starting this game in Pandora. It's a great way of learning the game, you do not need a collection whatsoever and rewards are noticeably higher in Pandora then in ladder.
First there are no commons in here; I do not recommend crafting them. Also rares usually come as you grind towards a full collection. However dont think twice if you want to craft them, having strong cards makes the game more fun to play.
I tried to make this list in ascending order; generally speaking, the higher in the list the more times the card is used and/or the better the card is.
So lets get down to the list.

Tech-cards and other cards to craft
|Radiance Imperial Airship||Self damage decks/control|

These cards are more situational. Some are used in just a specific deck (for instance Yellow Fliers or GY Sacrifice) and other deck run just one copy of tech cards.
As this game is constantly changing this list might not be as relevant in time. This is my current opinion on what to craft these days.

I hope you enjoy it!
