/u/bboomslang on Blue Delver Players: Your favorite piece of sideboard removal?

Against my arch-nemesis Bogles: Curfew. Just so much fun to turn a downside to an upside with your fairies. Feels like cheating, probably because it is 😉

but for harder stuff I prefer Curse of Chains, as it can really screw with non-green decks. But the less-than-great blue “removal” made me switch to UR delver in the end.

/u/bboomslang on Ixalan, Iconic Masters, and Pauper

I somehow allready hate the idea of [[Seeker of the Ways]] showing up in Kuldotha Boros. I think it fits in that build at least as a two-of (maybe spread over main and side or fully side depending on meta) to help against more aggressive decks. They ha…

/u/bboomslang on What do reviewers do that drives you mad?

God, Boardgame Brawl still to this day posts videos with out-of-focus components. He is doing it for years and still doesn’t get it right nor reshooting those parts. It’s not hard science, dude, learn your equipment!

/u/bboomslang on What do reviewers do that drives you mad?

SUaSD and NPI both have this stupid idea that pushing/throwing pieces around is funny. Nope, it isn’t, at keast not if you do it as often as you do. It irks me, when I see people clumsily or pretend-clumsily shove around pieces and break the setup. It doesn’t add to neither value nor tone of the review. But well, I can look over it if the review provides value, but it is probably why I relegate those two channels more to the boardgame-clowns faction than as valuable information sources. Fun to watch every now and then, especially about games I allready know about, but rarely a source when looking for information about a game, as that gets lost in the “funny”. Same as inside the box, great channel, just not great source of info about a game.

/u/bboomslang on What do reviewers do that drives you mad?

Man vs Meeples is mire the board game evening news to me than an actual review channel. Tidbits from the hobby, pointers for games I might want to go in on further, stuff like that. I like their super smooth production, really, the amateurish clobbered togetherness of some reviewers gets to me sometimes. I like that thwir thing is on the shorter side, too. As I said, the equivalent of the evening news. Especially when they have guests. I’ve never gone to a MvM vid when I wanted to know about a game specificially, but I have gone for more infos on a game after several MvM videos.

/u/bboomslang on What do reviewers do that drives you mad?

Yeah, I miss All the games you like are bad – he gave real analysis, based on reasoning that again he presented to you, so you could decide to agree or disagree. Very valuable contributions in my book, so sad he stopped doing them.

/u/bboomslang on Game of the Week, Redux: Imperial Settlers

I really like it, but somehiw it never hits the table. It might be the fiddlyness – all that conversion stuff happenong – and the different decks to know, it just feels overly complicated for what it does. 51st State Master Set feels kinda the same (no wonder, same game system) with even more stuff added with the contact tokens. I really like the system, but most people I teach it to, I notice they just don’t “get it” – which ends with them not really enjiying it. Maybe this is one of thise games you really have to play repeatedly to really enjoy it. Will give one of them a new chance on our weekly game night nontheless, maybe it finally will click for others.

/u/bboomslang on Best 4X game out right now?

I love the golden ages, but I think some parts are a bit limited if you look at it with the 4x perspective – there is no real epic feel especially to the exterminate and explore parts. It does very well if you just go for “civ builder in 2 hours”, though. It is – to me – more akin to Scythe and other civ-like euro games. As said, I love to play it, but I think someone explicitly asking for a 4X best-of game might feel that it is a bit lacking.

/u/bboomslang on What are the most effective answers to Hexproof creatures like Slippery Bogle in Azorius colors?

[[Curfew]] is a good cheap edict when a hexproof creature makes it past your defenses and it usually works well with blink/reuse themes. [[Circle of protection: green]] can shut down quite a bit of the deck if you have the mana to spend. [[Dawn Charm]]…

/u/bboomslang on What is your favorite deck and why is it your favorite?

While I don’t play it myself, it is by far my favorite deck to play against. I feel like the games are allways interesting, with cool stuff going on. Sure, there is the “oops, I win” with tokens and boost, but it is far less annoying than the corresponding part with hexproof (probably my least favorite deck to play against). It just makes for very interesting games.

/u/bboomslang on What is your favorite deck and why is it your favorite?

It is one in my gauntlet, but I really dislike how – despite running crop rotation and expedition maps – far too often it doesn’t assemble tron on time. I moved back to a more murasa tron like build where I can just stumble into tron but am not too dependent on it to be there. But still, while a fun deck, I allways feel like I put too much cards in for having it work than for actual answers or threats. I guess I just like controlly aggro or hard control much more than big mana.

/u/bboomslang on What is your favorite deck and why is it your favorite?

This is my number two after UR delver. I just love it when my opponent starts to ask “resolves?” with every card they play. And with UB teachings, they don’t just have to worry if it resolves, but have to worry if it stays, too. I named mine lovingly “fuck you, bogles” because I out it together after being beaten by bogles once too often.

/u/bboomslang on What is your favorite deck and why is it your favorite?

I’m in the same boat, really love that deck. Especially the epic comebacks you can have with ut by hitting a late game gush. One game my opponent was desperately digging for a bolt or blast to finish me, whike I was in top deck mide, but hitting a gush and grabbed sime digging spells and getting some counters back to my hand brought me back into the game. Really fun deck, enjoy playing it a ton.
