Yes. Round 1 and Round 2 come with those boards. Pledge levels with 10 decks are really Round 1 (or Round 2) + 6 single decks in tuckboxes that you're getting months ahead of the regular release. In other words, at every pledge level over $40 you get a life tracking board, and at every level above $200 you get both boards.
Yes, lots of reasons not to get them! These are *only* the set of cards with gameplay changes.
--The new cards have differently formatted ability boxes. Now there's a timing tag in the upper right like "Draw Phase" that your old cards won't have, so that won't match.
--There's now a "normal draw rule." The help text of the new cards says to draw when your normal attack is blocked or wins combat. Your old cards won't say the right help text, but the new ones will.
--Does not include art tweaks.
--Does not include reworded abilities (which is basically ALL abilities). The new ones are shorter and more concise, partly due to the new timing tags.
--Does not include the stat reference cards.
--Your old tuckboxes probably can't fit the extra EX cards inside, if you choose to get those, but the new tuckboxes can.
As players, we really prefer a fresh new set that's all updated. You can use these v1 gameplay-changed cards as a last resort to get to the latest balance if you are ok some mismatches and not having the same level polish
No. It would have to be much bigger if it did, and that increases manufacturing cost and shipping cost. Most players have said they don't want sleeves, so it would quite an inconvenience to them to increase box size and cost. Furthermore, good sleeves are expensive, and would cost about half as much as the decks they are protecting. Many Yomi players have played with their cards for years without sleeves, and said that if any particular deck did get damaged, buying it for $10 would be cheaper in the end. Note that 12 decks outside of Round 1 and Round 2 will be available individually at that price.
Also remember that Yomi cards are not like CCG cards. They are higher quality and have a protective coating. That said, if you still want to sleeve your cards, go ahead! You could try using the EX Power up box and the original Yomi Complete Edition box to hold them all.
