Rarity is a feature to enhance Phreaker Life collectability and fun.
Phreaker Life rarity comes in four flavors, Common, Uncommon, Rare, and Epic. There were discussions of foiling some cards, but that became too cost prohibitive. If the community responds strongly with interest in the game and we decide to make another edition, not barring any circumstances other then funds, we would love to include a foiled card rarity in the future.
Rarity ratio is 1:2:3:4 to Epic : Rare : Uncommon : Common cards printed respectively in the CC3 (CypherCon 3.0) Edition. There are a total of 80 numbered cards, with 4 rarities per cards, sans Energy, yielding a total of 296 unique cards created. There are a total of 23,000 cards printed, including Energy cards. The Energy cards were printed without rarity. Nonetheless, an Energy ratio of 1:2:4 to Surge : Current : Spark was utilized to prevent a Phreaker from loading their deck with a higher value Energy card.
The ratio has changed to a 1:7:21:49 ratio starting from Epic : Rare : Uncommon : Common cards printed in the CC4 Expansion Troll Edition. There are a total of 41 numbered cards, 4 rarities per card, sans Energy, yielding a total of 152 unique cards created. A total of 13,500 cards have been printed, packed in 500 boxes with 27 cards per box. 4 new Energy cards have been designed to give Phreakers who build a deck with a majority of a set discipline to have an advantage.
Common cards don't have a distinguishing graphic to denote their rarity. This includes Energy cards, they are Common.
