As we all know, players have 15B/5G/10R at their first turn, plus 1B/1G/1R as compensation for second turn. But what if starting resources could be changed for each deck separately? Something like dropdown list with options like Bricks/Recruits/Gems, Gems/Bricks/Recruits etc. With Gems/Recruits/Bricks selected, for example, player would get 5-6B/15-16G/10-11R at round 1-2.
What do you think? Would that be good or bad for game overall?

I believe that this would require a huge balance change for many cards, since some cards were nerfed because of the fact that they could by played at the first turn.

Just imagine a dark templar, a scepter of summoning in a zero cost deck or a zealot played in turn 1. This would make rushes even easier and other deck setups even faster than they are currently.

I agree. I think it breaks the balance. Most of the cards are built around this initial resource setup. Gems are generally considered a more "precious" resource.

In any case if such a thing were to be done, an indication of deck type would be required everytime a new game is hosted, so that other players would know and be prepared accordingly.

Okay, let's make a change. Starting stock is 5/5/5, but you can get 5-9 additional bricks, 4-7 recruits or 3-5 gems, depending of what you select as primary and secondary resources.

It's not a bad idea, I've seen similar gameplay somewhere, but

what would it effectively change? Lets say you play your beast deck, and I play my Unliving deck. You get more recruits, I get more bricks. We negate each other, as If we'd simply had more stock overall.

But If we could add an extra facility of choice that would have much more effect. (Although easily negatable and too much "disturbance in the force")

These are effects that will likely come into play when the deities mode Mojko's talked about a bit reaches development. (I forget what he actually called it, but where each player can choose a bonus effect for the game.)

I don't think this is a good idea. It would make game balance much more difficult. You should look at Deity game mode suggestion, though.
