Silver Age: HL 10/1

September 30, 2008

I got my wisdom teeth pulled out yesterday, and thanks to the painkillers I have been high as a kite ever since! Whee! Anyway, tomorrow our posse will be playing Silver Age decks. With MEV’s upcoming release now is the time to try and break MUN before it’s too late.

The one deck I can’t seem to wrap my head around is the SHIELD/Crime Lords ‘Double Agent!’ build. The team-up is simply too awesome to ignore, but there isn’t a whole lot in common that the two teams share. My first instinct is to stall out like none other, and throw in some devastating late drops… hm.

We’ll see what my chemically imbalanced head comes up with. It should make for an interesting night. See you there!

Where have I been!?

Moving + Life = Less Blogging. Apologies! Fortunately things are settling into a nice groove again, and I should have time for regular updates on The Brave and the Blog! Look forward to new features, new writers and probably a whole bunch of obscure characters/formats… fun times…

My most significant VS. achievement recently has not even been my own. My amigos at Lost Hemisphere have been working tirelessly for their ‘Summer of Love’ event, and it has been a complete joy to read. I was asked to submit two decks of my own creation, and I’m pleased to report that one of them is still in the running!

Defying common sense at every turn, my own Birds of Prey/New Gods team-up(!) has managed to advance to the semi-finals. If I have to be known as “That blogger who loves New Gods,” so be it. Granny Goodness knows I’ll be playing my favorite deities in the new Bring Your Own Team-Up format.

Breaking You: Arkham Discard

September 5, 2008

The goal of ‘Breaking You’ is to spotlight overlooked themes in the game, and to use cards that might not otherwise see a lot of play. Also, whenever possible, we’re going to try and make these decks affordable for new players (ie: Random Punks.) This week we’ll be looking at the Arkham Inmates, who have seen almost no play whatsoever in Silver or Modern Age.

This will not be a deck for the faint of heart. Let’s do this, people!
