Look at those Undercity Sewer numbers! Whereas Watery Grave was played for safety reasons, the Sewers give that slight bit of value that the kids can't get enough of! I thought there might be a pattern of Undercity Sewer players playing more Dazes, but it's only 1.3 versus 1.4 copies of Daze for No Sewer vs Sewer players.
The numbers for Dress Down are only surprising because why are they not higher? It does so much in this meta.
discoverN seems to have settled on a Dauthi Voidwalker as an answer to the Lurrus menace, although one copy feels a bit low. We'll see if these numbers tick up over time. This reminds me of how Mishra's Bauble started, and we were up to four copies being common at one point.
There's nothing particularly spicy this week except for discoverN's one copy of Dream Salvage coming back. What a delightful little card to play against Dredge.
