Best and Worst Openings

This page is meant to be reminiscent of the Isotropic leaderboard. We consider the openings -- the cards you buy on the first two turns -- as if they were players whose skill adds to yours. The "level" of an opening then indicates the minimum amount it should add, or subtract, from your effective level, rounded up.

There are many openings of average or unknown effectiveness in level 0. They're hidden by default, but they will show up when you search for a particular card or "All cards".
