    Howdy all,

    So I've gotten the idea of making a custom home made deck of cards with TFs on the cards. The list below is a rough draft list of who I'm thinking on placing on which card. I'd appreciate any feedback, suggestions, revisions to the list. I'm trying to create parity in the rank/power of the character on the face of the card across the different suits but sometimes that's hard to do. Its also difficult figuring out who are the more important/prominent characters to include. Each suit represents a particular group (pre/post Autobots or Decepticons).

    --Hearts--
    Ace- Dinobots
    King- Optimus
    Queen- Prowl
    Jack- Jazz
    10- Wheeljack
    9- Ratchet
    8- Sideswipe
    7- Sunstreaker
    6- Mirage
    5- Trailbreaker
    4- Hound
    3- Ironhide
    2- Bumblebee (or Minibot Team)

    --Spades--
    Ace- Devastator
    King- Megatron
    Queen- Soundwave
    Jack- Starscream
    10- Thundercracker
    9- Skywarp
    8- Kickback (or Thrust)
    7- Bombshell (or Ramjet)
    6- Shrapnel (or Dirge)
    5- Rumble (or Runabout & Runamuck)
    4- Frenzy (or Rumble & Frenzy)
    3- Laserbeak
    2- Ravage

    --Diamonds--
    Ace- Omega Supreme (or Minibot Team) (Or Powermaster Optimus Prime)
    King- Rodimus Prime
    Queen- Ultra Magnus
    Jack- Kup
    Ten- Springer
    10- Perceptor
    9- Blaster
    8- Wreck-Gar
    7- Blurr
    6- Wheelie
    5- Aerialbots
    4- Protectobots
    3- Technobots (or Sky Lynx) (or Omega Supreme) (or Powermaster Optimus Prime)
    2- Metroplex

    --Clubs--
    Ace- Predaking
    King- Galvatron
    Queen- Scourge
    Jack- Cyclonus
    10- Shockwave
    9- Sixshot
    8- Blitzwing
    7- Astrotrain
    6- Octane (or Sharkticon)
    5- Menasor
    4- Bruticus
    3- Abominus
    2- Trypticon


    Thanks for your suggestions!

    Well it's not really balanced between the houses. Look at how many combiners Clubs have! I don't have any problems with Hearts and Spades though.

    King- Optimus
    Queen- Jetfire
    Jack- Prowl
    10- Jazz
    9- Wheeljack
    8- Ratchet
    7- Sunstreaker & Sideswipe (I find it a waste to put 2 identical bots)
    6- Mirage
    5- Ironhide
    4- Trailbreaker
    3- Hound
    2- Bumblebee (or Minibot Team)

    --Spades--
    Ace- Devastator
    King- Megatron
    Queen- Starscream
    Jack- Shockwave
    10- Soundwave
    9- Skywarp & Thundercracker
    8- Blitzwing
    7- Astrotrain
    6- Kickback (or Thrust)
    5- Bombshell (or Ramjet)
    4- Shrapnel (or Dirge)
    3- Rumble & Frenzy
    2- Reflector

    --Diamonds--
    Ace- Omega Supreme (or Minibot Team) (Or Powermaster Optimus Prime)
    King- Rodimus Prime
    Queen- Sky Lynx
    Jack- Ultra Magnnus
    Ten- Broadside
    10- Kup
    9- Wreck-Gar
    8- Blaster
    7- Punch/Counter-Punch
    6-
    5-
    4- Perceptor
    3- Blurr
    2- Wheelie

    --Clubs--
    Ace- Predaking
    King- Galvatron
    Queen- Cyclonus
    Jack- Sixshot
    10- Scourge
    9- Octane
    8- Runabout & Runamuck
    7-
    6-
    5-
    4-
    3-
    2-

    I need to refresh my memory on season 3 bots.

    If you wanna throw in the cityformers, give 1 to each house to be fair. Metroplex, Trypticon, Fortress Maximus, Skorponok.

    Hmm...I would put Soundwave and the cassettes on one card (or atleats Soundwave and Laserbeak without the others)...then move Blitzwing, Astrotrain and Shockwave up in the Spades with Megatron...And I would say Ironhide or Prowl as queen in the hearts instead of Jetfire (they are more of Prime's right hand man than Jetfire would be IMO)...

    Good luck making them...

    I would make the Leaders the aces, myself. For your Spades, I'd give more love to the Seekers with individual cards for each, and group the Insecticons and the Cassettes onto one card each.

    I've got a similar project on the go, except I'm working on a Tarot deck, with all-original artwork. Unfortunately, due to computer issues and trouble working out who's going where, it's worked out to be a much longer-term affair than I'd originally hoped, but one day... :p

    Shouldn't Grimlock be a King?

    I forgot about those. But here's the thing, they're hard to find and the whole point is to make a deck that I like. A lot times very little thought is put into these official decks- its just random characters on random cards.

    All the King's are leaders of their entire faction, Optimus, Rodimus, Megatron and Galvatron. Grimlock is only leader of a subgroup.
