Thoughts

If SingPanMan shows up, there's going to be Watery Grave, Planar Void and maybe something being tested.


The main lists are almost identical this list. The most unique thing is Enrichetta's use of Consider, which I'd like more if Treasure Cruise were also in the list. There isn't that much space, unfortunately.


Everyone was on at least one Opposition Agent this week, and while Leyline of the Void felt pointless to me, I wanted to try a list without Thing in the Ice to see if I was leaning on it too much recently. I think SingPanMan's usage of Dress Down is probably correct. It that deals with Construct tokens, gives a window to play around Lavinia and other hatebears, and can even see play in the Doomsday mirror match.

Eternal Weekend is coming up 11/27-28, so I'll be doing some practice to see where I want to be for that. I'll also be streaming all three events, and will be on Doomsday for all of them. Wish me luck!
