/u/bboomslang on Second masters set this year confirmed by WotC

Oh man, I would so go for Izzet Staticaster for my Murasa Tron deck (flash allows me to find it with Teachings).

/u/bboomslang on Favorite 2-player asymmetric games?

Wir sind das Volk would be my suggestion, too. Great CDG feel, but still euro-y enough to get people in more easily. Really fun game with lots of interesting decisions with each card. Still haven’t won with the east against my wife playing the west. Dang.

[Crowdfunding] Bios: Genesis 2nd edition Kickstarter now live

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/684398802/bios-genesis-2nd-edition-begin-evolve-conquer

I missed this one on its first go around since it was sold out within what seems like weeks. I’m getting onto this one. It’s sure to get funded, has none of the silly stretch goal stuff [edit: whoops, there’s linen finished cards as a stretch goal. A stretch goal they’ll probably hit on the first day that is. Edit edit: stretch goal hit in what, 3 hours?], and it’s a Phil Eklund game.

If you don’t have Pax Renaissance already, you can also pay a bit more to get a copy of that. I highly recommend it, it’s the game I want to play again the most right now.

Edit: aaaand, funding goal reached.

/u/bboomslang on Are Dinrova Tron variants better or just different?

Hmm, Crop Rotation, Expedition Map and especially Forbidden Alchemy should help getting threshold, especially running some more Moment’s Peace to keep stompy at bay. One of the things that got on my nerves with my plays of Murasa Tron was the inconsistency of achieving tron. I know and understand that Murasa is more of a controlly deck that doesn’t need to assemble tron as quickly as other tron decks, but still it felt clunky in that regard. Which is why I added some Crop Rotation and shifted it a bit more towards green stuff (especially since that allows me to run Sprout Swarm as another wincon or board clogger that can be tutored with Mystical Teachings). No idea if that means it still is Murasa Tron, though 😉

Yeah, I am wondering if throwing some Swirling Sandstorm into Murasa Tron together with some fogs might not be a better way to handle stompy, as you can just fog them until you get your board wipe and from that position just get a grip of the game.

/u/bboomslang on Balanced decks that are fun to play for both beginners and experienced players.

I find Kuldotha Boros vs. UR Snow Delver a really fun and quite balanced matchup. I’m playing this with a colleague of mine every now and then and we both feel like we have a good chance at winning all through, and both decks have great lines of play. And both decks feel like they are a good way to grow with the game, as you gain experience. Both have some simpler plans to execute and both can have some super-turns and traps to put out for the opponent. And more important to me and my colleague: both decks lack the distinct “unfun” aspect some other decks (I look at you, Bogles, and my colleague probably is looking at my Dimir Creatureless Control 😉 ) have.

Related Item: iOS Board Games Woah, didn’t see that coming, for a kinda older title in some niche genre. Definitely an auto buy for me, since I never find opponents around my home for RftG.
