    One easy thing you can do in ante leagues (borring this from an old magic league) is not to allow people to keep the cards they have at the end of the game.

      One easy thing you can do in ante leagues
      (borring this from an old magic league) is not to allow
      people to keep the cards they have at the end of the
      game. Here's the way it works...after the league just
      collect all the cards and distribute them how you feel,
      the winner gets first choice, or the winner takes
      all. Some people would say that is unfair, but if it
      only costs $15 for 6 months of play, even if you end
      up with nothing at the end it's better then $7 for a
      2 hour movie.<br>Anyway, the reason you do this
      is:<br>1) so people will use all their cards, if they are
      afraid to lose their entombments and won't play with
      them, how are you going to know who is best. You have
      to take away the fear of losing cards...easiest way
      is to make it so you get nothing if you don't
      win.<br>2) keeps trading on an even level. If you allow any
      form of trading there is always some jerk who decides
      he is going to trade all this "good cards" (forced
      awakening etc) for all the good cards (direct intervention,
      entombment) He would rather lose and drain the play group of
      it's rares, then play a good game and win.<br>3) if
      you end up not keeping the cards, there is no need to
      qualify cards (ie only trading rare for rare, only
      trading action for action) keep it simple, make trades 1
      for 1 basis. in a limited environment a rare is just
      as good as a common, some times worse. Who wants to
      trade the ONLY forced awakening, plus 8 other commons,
      to get an entombment? Assuming you are playing the
      winning brujah deck, you would only do this because you
      got to keep the cool rares...not fun.
