I should start off saying I like using them and think most of them are good.
But have you noticed that people dont like playing with the forum decks as much anymore ? I have opponents who now specifically want to play with only the "classic" wotc stuff and have started using that as a caveat in matches saying there is too many cards now and in some cases they dont like what they have done.
I haven't noticed that at my own club or at Origins or down in St. Louis. In fact, my guys are usually looking forward to getting new cards to play. They tend to get a bit bored bored during long intervals between decks.
But I can see where anyone coming into the game would be overwhelmed. That's the case for anyone entering a long-running game.
As RAEVSKI said, you can't please everyone with the cards. Especially not all the time. There was a ton of complaining back in the WotC days too! Our own club has banned 6 of the cards from deck 4.
Play it the way you like to play it. At least they are playing the game.
