Codex is an RTS-themed customizable card game. You build your deck as you play from a pool of cards in your "codex". You'll grow your economy by hiring workers, and spend the gold on summoning heroes, leveling them up, casting their spells, and building more and more powerful units.
This Deluxe set is packed with YEARS of gameplay. First, you get all six main factions plus the neutral faction. This includes all the cards from the starter, core, and expansion products. You also get fancy playmats, exclusive map cards that change a rule about the game each playthrough, and snazzy binders for each of the six main factions. A custom-made box is designed to hold all this stuff, even if you sleeve your cards.
Codex Deluxe Set contains:
• Over 700 cards including six main factions + neutral
• 6 Codex binders
• 2 high quality playmats
• 3 extra player boards
• Dial to track life totals
• Chits to track other quantities
• Huge, custom designed box to hold all components, even if you sleeve the cards

You will need two extra binders for two of the factions though, just to warn you.
Your deck is very similar to that in Mage Wars, you have access to your whole library from the start. Although you can only play the cards that you have upgraded to the tech level for and specialize in. This makes it a little unique as well as the patrol mechanic. You can select the target of any attack except each player has a patrol zone and a patrol leader. The patrol leader needs to always be removed first, then any other unit in the patrol zone before you can choose another target. Each patrol zone slot also provides a bonus such as bonus attack or armor. I like this a lot and it gives it a different flavor than the same old mage battler.
The art is pretty good and ranges from action-packed to silly (one card has a giant panda shooting a rainbow out of its mouth). The quality leaves something to be desired considering the cost. The cards and spellbooks are fine but everything else is cheap cardboard tokens. And without buying one of the complete collections whether at once (I bought the deluxe version which includes everything) or piecemeal by acquiring the expansions the amount of content might wear thin. Even with everything considering the price other games offer a lot more for a much better deal (like the aforementioned Mage Wars). So this is a hard one to recommend if you don't already have it, even though I enjoy it now that I do own it.
A huge change compared to other CCGs is that it's not collectible at all- once you have each faction, you have the whole game(all of which are in this Deluxe set)! There won't be new sets released every few months, such as with Magic the Gathering. Now, this might lead you to think that the strategies and gameplay will be limited since there will be no new content released, but the way you and your opponent can customize your Codex to play will keep the game interesting for years and years to come.
So, why would you want this Deluxe Set compared to the Core or Starter Sets? Well, this box contains all of the Red, Green and Grey cards from the Core and Starter as well as all of the marker chits to keep track of values, but it also has the Expansion cards that are set to release over the next few months for the Blue, Black, White and Purple sets. It has 6 custom binders with low-cut pockets to use for your Codex as opposed to the 2 in the Core. It has 2 mousepad material playmats and 3 cardstock mats for multiplayer games. Lastly, it has exclusive Map cards that change up the rules a bit for custom games. Plus, the box is designed to hold EVERYTHING. Even if you sleeve all of your cards!
In short, if you're sick of games making your decks irrelevant immediately after a new set is released, and you want to experiment with tons of strategies out of one box, Codex is the game for you. If you want the absolute best and complete way of getting one of the best new card games in years, this Deluxe Set is the way to go.
