I think I will from now on limit my list of decks to draw from for the “Deck of the Week” project to the ones I have rarely used so far (or not at all).
I find that I’m just not doing much with the decks I already know fairly well. Not that I think I’ve reached the bottom of any of my decks. But I was rather disinterested about the Housewives (which I used exclusively for two months a while ago) a few weeks back, and it is now the same with the Ironwing (which was my solo deck for another three months last year). I’m just not feeling the same excitement and desire to explore as I did with the decks that were more or less completely new to me. You would think I’d be happy to reconnect with old favorites, but apparently I’m not. Or at least not in the context of this project.
I’m not quite sure yet how annoyed I am by that realization. Maybe it’s fine to do this project mostly as one to explore decks I haven’t used to any notable extent so I’ll be able to judge if I want to keep them or pass them on. Maybe I really am mostly in it for the newness of all those unused decks, until I get the next urge to spend several months with just one of them. Not that either of these are a bad thing.
