So, I have about 40 games under my belt now, am pretty solid with the rules and basic strategies and am ready to start focusing on getting a bit better. I've played all 7 factions enough to get a taste for them and have run good netlists and built my own mostly bad decks. I don't really have time to devote right now to deck building AND playing so given my druthers, and the fact that I like the social aspect I've decided to use my limited hobby time for gaming and I want to focus on a couple of decks now that I've sampled the styles.
I'm not asking for specific decks here, more just a general idea on whether for improving play without regard to winning or losing (given my time constraints there are no tourneys in my near future and I've a solid enough self worth that I'm okay going 0-5 on the night as long as I have fun and learn and get better.
So my real question is, will I learn more, and become a better player with a stronger more consistent deck like a PPVP Kate or Noise Faust or will playing a weaker more niche style deck like a Nasir Solidarity or Chaos Theory Econ quick rush deck help me grow more as a player so next summer when I do get more time I'll be able to take advantage of the games I'm getting in now.
