I recently started playing and so far I've only played with theme decks. But how do I build a good deck? I found plenty of post about good decks people play but I have only a few of the cards needed. Should I open the packs from the sets the cards are from, or should I try trading the cards for packs? How many packs should I trade for them?

Should I buy packs from the newest expansion or are there older better ones?

 

I have 1k coins saved up and about 20 packs (from Phantom Forces -> Lost Thunder), so if you know a good deck I can get I would be grateful.

There's always the option to buy two Mach strike theme decks and customize with 4 Garchomp, 4 Cynthia, 2 Lucario, 2 Pal pad (or 3), add Rare candies... It's the 1000 coins you have and some extra easy cards to get. Is not the best deck ever but it works.

 

Lost march is another not very expensive.

 

At the end if you want to play high level, you need to trade for expensive cards. You can win packs in Theme events and use it to trade.

 

Open any locked pack and keep the unlocked ones for trades is the smart choice.

I tried buying two but I didn't get any cards the second time a bought it. Is this a bug?

 

Edit: The second one apparently dosen't open up automatically and shows up as a pack.

Yes, first auto opens, next ones you need to go to collection and open it manually, each time. Then you'll see your count of cards doubled/increased.
