As your Ascension collection grows, players may begin to mesh the sets together. However, this raises the question: how many Energy Shards should I include in the Center Deck to keep the game balanced? Thankfully, there's a simple formula:
- For every large set included in the Center Deck, include 30 Energy Shards. Chronicle of the Godslayer, Storm of Souls, Rise of Vigil, Realms Unraveled, and all future sets are considered "large sets".
- For every small set included in the Center Deck, include 20 Energy Shards. Return of the Fallen, Immortal Heroes, and Darkness Unleashed are considered "small sets".
