Apparently Socket Gems are limited to 4 of each color per deck in PVP constructed. I understand the logic and think is is a good idea but haven't seen it mentioned previously in these forums. Just wanted to raise awareness. Sorry if this has already been covered in which case let the thread die!

Makes sense, but where did you see that?

Cory mentioned it in the Geek Allstars podcast.

I believe all gem stuff is just speculation at this point. If I'm not mistaken, all CZE has said is that there would be limits, but didn't actually specify what.

Kind of a shame really; there'd totally be a boulderbrute.dec archetype otherwise.

the limit is 4 of each TYPE, not color. so you could have 16 of each color, if you really wanted.

Hmm, if you're limited to 4 of each color is this likely significantly effect the power of multi-color decks? The gems do seem both powerful and versatile.

What do the sockets even do?

You add gems to them, and depending on the color of the gem , the card is enhanced.

Socketed cards are some of the best i have seen ao far. If there is a limit to how many you can use is it on the ammount of cards with sockets or on the gems for those cards

You can have as many socketable cards as you like subject to max four of each card. The limit applies to gems in a deck.
