Does anyone here still play the Babylon 5 CCG?

Not really but I do have all my cards and look at them every few years. It's a shame that it never really took off. Other than MtG, it was one of the first CCGs I got into.

It did involve quite a lot of bookkeeping.

Got any deck lists you feel like sharing? The ones I saw on residual fan websites all looked... um... really bad.

My best so far is probably:

Starting hand
Miziri Tal (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/WheelofFire/Gallery/?080)
Rapid Growth (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/GreatWar/Gallery/?269)
Muster Support (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/Shadows/Gallery/?096)
Councilor La'shan (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/WheelofFire/Gallery/?023)
Vlur/Nhar (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/GreatWar/Gallery/?368)

Characters
Shiv'kala (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/WheelofFire/Gallery/?115)
Napar'ishu (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/WheelofFire/Gallery/?083)
Dureena Nafeel (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/Crusade/Gallery/?042)
Luhf/Syhf (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/GreatWar/Gallery/?183)
Morden (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/Deluxe/Gallery/?214)

Conflicts
2 Attacking Pawns (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/Deluxe/Gallery/?014)
3 Disruption (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/GreatWar/Gallery/?080)
3 Prey on the Weak (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/Shadows/Gallery/?118)
3 Sowing Unrest (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/Shadows/Gallery/?147)
3 Make Them Angry (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/PsiCorps/Gallery/?094)

Other
Drakh Raiders (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/WheelofFire/Gallery/?034)
Flying Fortress (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/WheelofFire/Gallery/?046)
Main Battlefleet (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/WheelofFire/Gallery/?072)
Force Omega (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/WheelofFire/Gallery/?048)
2 Foment Discord (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/WheelofFire/Gallery/?047)
Successful Manipulation (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/Deluxe/Gallery/?333)
Zhabar (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/GreatWar/Gallery/?397)
Guerillas (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/PsiCorps/Gallery/?066)
3 Held Back (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/Shadows/Gallery/?063)
3 Internal Strife (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/Deluxe/Gallery/?160)
3 Political Realignment (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/Deluxe/Gallery/?251)
3 Mass Rioting (http://b5ccg.mahasamatman.com/PsiCorps/Gallery/?096)

Obviously a Drakh deck, it relies on increasing unrest to prevent others from acting while building power. Looks a bit character light, but Councilor La'shan comes does turn two and fetches Shiv'kala who in turn fetches Napar'ishu. Because Foment Discord lets you win on 15 power it can win very quickly, though it can't match a dedicated Centari deck for Intrigue or a Psi Corps deck for Psi and those may require a longer game.

Still got my set (including my Susan Ivanova signed by Claudia Christen)! I thought it was a great game - might have to dig it out again and play a few games.

Cheers

Please post your lists! I'd love to see what other people came up with.

B5 was so early in my CCG 'career' that deck building never really came into it, I was content at that time with the boxed decks (particular the Psi Corps deck). Plus, like I said above, it never really took off meaning there was no need to get anymore invested beyond just collecting the cards.

Slightly off topic, but I'm immensely looking forward to FFG's upcoming 40k LCG.

When I first started Dylan's Babylon 5 CCG area (http://web.dar.net/~northrup/b5ccg) was still up. I don't suppose either of you know how I could get hold of an archived version?

How the heck did you win with the Psi Corps precon?

I love my B5ccg decks. I still have my mollari centauri shadows deck(still needing a third mr morden), lord riva intrigue deck, and minbari military deck.

Great game, cool cards, excellent multi player aspects too. Great memories with my high school friends.

It's nice to see this thread. I actually found my cards not that long ago.

I think there is a setup for vassal, and a deck builder that still works.
