warboss5: What's up everybody!
DeM0nFiRe: Wow there's a half mile of snow? Crazy
korvys: 2 feet, final offer
NewtyNewts: A whole foot!? Not just, like, a couple toes?
micalovits: I heard 3 meters of snow, right now from myself
Riiiiiiis: well somewhere there is probably 3 feet in a pile
TheWriterAleph: yay!
warboss5: James riding solo today?
KingOfDoma: A foot of snow in a city that's not equipped to handle it is still extremely rough
YeetTheRich_: 1 foot that's like 30 cm that's like 3 feet
princess_intell: windows: :-(
fjordsword: Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to James and chat!
YeetTheRich_: aspirant is better i think
Diabore: luminarch is still good
kalamstrifevii: it's winter in Alberta right now, as a Canadian, you might have visited Alberta. It's like minus 30 Celsius. deathuHELP

Diabore: luminarch, as always, is kill on sight
WiJohn: You also have a decent chance of wheeling Elspeth funnily enough
Juliamon: unless you're SURE it's what you want
nuggetthehugget: elspeth is fun luminarch is better
Diabore: vanguard is agro
kalamstrifevii: I would say the Giant.
Alex_Frostfire: Not one, but two UR duals in this pack, huh.
Feriority: Is this arena cube?
princess_intell: vanguard looks good
princess_intell: yep
kalamstrifevii: it's a good save though!
WiJohn: Vanguard since you took aspirant for sure
Diabore: decidedly not aggro 7 drop
WiJohn: Splicer is good
code1300: That o crap button
warboss5: B Splicy?
Diabore: settle
WiJohn: take it
micalovits: Approach or coward
matthaus_c: is Settle aggro lrrBEEJ
EOstby: Do it.
chrono2x: Splicer or settle
345tom: approach is pretty funny is my argument
Al_Azil3: Settle is.. settle :D
megamaduo: no one plays around settle
warboss5: Garden IS a dual for you
Feriority: Settle is probably correct, but splicer is right
code1300: Binding removal
kalamstrifevii: Yeah it's good and I would pick Lyra.
matthaus_c: do you need red cards?
Diabore: we can just be mono white
WiJohn: Why do you need red?
micalovits: Patriars is busted
TheWriterAleph: already forcing your colors, might as well go nuts :)
chrono2x: lyra is great
warboss5: It is, but not Lyra fun
lochnessseammonster: fun is always the good choice PrideLaugh
samu_btdp1985: roll is better
YeetTheRich_: patriars humiliation is solit on the go wide plan
TheWriterAleph: can't argue with that logic
YeetTheRich_: solid
cmdrelk: nice hat, btw
WiJohn: White deck then red next
chrono2x: Cutting one of your two colors is still worth
matthaus_c: then why not K Command for the black on your headphone as well
345tom: lyra tbh
korvys: Humiliation seems useful
NewtyNewts: White Christmas
echochrisx: Gotta he Lyra
warboss5: Lyra without a single other Angel is STILL a bomb
Diabore: we can pick up red pack 3
Diabore: i like patriars here
NotCainNorAbel: Is that a GOOD idea? or just an idea?
kalamstrifevii: You could go Mono white Angle aggro.
matthaus_c: I'd go for the bomb angel
matthaus_c: oh boy Steel Seraph
chrono2x: swifty is great

warboss5: Hey look, an angel!
korvys: Steel Seraph
Al_Azil3: Seraph is pretty good
echochrisx: Seraph!
matthaus_c: Seraph is absolutely the best card in the pack
Diabore: angle 100%, angel is obscene
kalamstrifevii: Never mind, it's a SWIFTY!
code1300: Is seraph better
Joecool190: that angel is busted
Diabore: lyra buffs it
Feriority: If you can pick a giant robot you should pick the giant robot
kalamstrifevii: NOO SWIFTY!!!!!
warboss5: Brash!
Fruan: field of ruin
matthaus_c: Discover the Formula lrrBEEJ
Al_Azil3: Strangle is fine

beneckja: strangle is ok
chrono2x: strangle is decent
WiJohn: Strangle's okay...
samu_btdp1985: strangle is good
code1300: Strangle
kalamstrifevii: I would say the Taunter.
Al_Azil3: Processor!
Diabore: invoke for signals
Al_Azil3: That's a FUN card :D
WiJohn: Invoke?
kalamstrifevii: Invoke!
345tom: i Know its cube and everythigns busted but im surprised jin is still in the deck
Diabore: uh oh
warboss5: Magma works well with angels

chrono2x: eye flys
LadyMCHall: Morning James

ThorSokar: HahaBall HahaBall HahaBall

Diabore: better than double red
WiJohn: RR is rough
chrono2x: humiliation, yeah
warboss5: Dual land
El_Funko: Yeah but the other one looked like they had Fanta for blood which is cool
warboss5: You can add black to the deck to match your beard!
WiJohn: Maybe you end up in mardu or bw sacrifice
Juliamon: Poor Jin
Ristow: fable is so good
Feriority: We can splash Jin right? It's only UU
Favre_the_Undead: benalia I think?
chrono2x: Fable of the mirror breaker!
WiJohn: Blade historian is busted
TheWriterAleph: eyyyy-oh. sayin eyyyy-oh
code1300: Fabel
warboss5: Nah, take Blade, he just straight wins games
NewtyNewts: I dunno, how much white's been taken in the past few packs..
DrFromage: I went 7-1 on the back of blade historian
Ristow: fable might be like top 5 cards in the cube tbh
chrono2x: Fable with your splicer is spicy
Juliamon: Kitties!
WiJohn: Yeah
chrono2x: skysoverign is a beating

cleric_ofthe_true_god: go for it, take the goblin
matthaus_c: Usher, Clarion Spirit and Thalia though? boy what a tough pack
WiJohn: Gobo
Favre_the_Undead: clarion?
chrono2x: siege gang is great, I think it is a good choice
Feriority: I think we have too many spells for Thalia?
Diabore: imo we have too many non creature for thalia
warboss5: I feel like this deck isn't good for it
Favre_the_Undead: you have so many low-drops
ThorSokar: that seems pretty good
Gekyouryuu: usher?

Juliamon: when the pack gives you Tithe
beneckja: you seem to jave enough playables
Joecool190: young pyro is quite good

QuixoticScrivener: yes
chrono2x: Triome is a dual land for you, yep
RemoraVox: mountain plains swamp plains swamp plains swamp
WiJohn: Cut a mountain
Diabore: we can probably get away with 16 land
cleric_ofthe_true_god: portable hole
echochrisx: You can cut a mountain here
WiJohn: since we have the MDFC
micalovits: Portable hole is bad
Favre_the_Undead: hole
Feriority: I think you can cut a land because of shatterskull
warboss5: Always a good position to be in
beneckja: pilgrims eye
warboss5: I think the Eye can be cut
WiJohn: eye?
korvys: !holes
LRRbot: Did somebody mention classic young-adult action-adventure movie Holes??
echochrisx: Pilgrims eye
micalovits: Magmaquake or eye I guess
warboss5: We've got plenty of fixing now
Feriority: Deck's perfect
Diabore: deck looks pog
YeetTheRich_: magmaquake
cleric_ofthe_true_god: NICE
Al_Azil3: Ship it
WiJohn: think about Heliod
EvilBadman: looks good honestly
beneckja: looks great
korvys: Magmaquake seems... meh?
micalovits: I would play heliod over magmaquake
Diabore: thought about it, didnt like the thought
345tom: I think you could drrop a plains and add heliod buts greedy
WiJohn: I'd play it over magma or the maul
echochrisx: Heliod instead of magmaquake
korvys: ew
TimeToFry: Doesn't Magmaquake hurt us
warboss5: Unholy heat might be a little difficult to turn on
chrono2x: looks good
WiJohn: Looks amazing
micalovits: Now, play 41 with approach
WiJohn: @micalovits The tech!
Sogheim: Heliod keeps you in the game, yeah
EvilBadman: @warboss5 Good thing it still works as a shock
echochrisx: Even invoke is pretty good, the counters on a flyer is quite the clock
Diabore: @warboss5 its still a shock, so not the worst thing
micalovits: They will never see it coming
Feriority: Seems good
WiJohn: It's a hand!
warboss5: @warboss5 True, but I'd rather have the Magma Quake myself
Diabore: #winning
WiJohn: Immediately strangle your own token to show dominance
Diabore: 0.o
WiJohn: Well, that's a hand
Diabore: settle?
warboss5: Settle?
EvilBadman: Settle is next turn
WiJohn: Settle for sure
chrono2x: settle, probably
WiJohn: race time!
micalovits: Settle I guess? Try kill them before t6
Diabore: no blue
YeetTheRich_: take the settle and go fast
NewtyNewts: Settle now costs 6
WiJohn: That's an MDFC so they have their blue sorce
Diabore: tapped blue thoug
warboss5: Kill Sorin with attacks
NewtyNewts: Sorin gets strangled?
chrono2x: strangle it and swing?
micalovits: Id just go face tbh, need to race
Diabore: peezy and strangle to kill sorin, face for 4
TimeToFry: How do you choke out a vampire?
beneckja: strangle sorin for the token
echochrisx: Naa kill sorin before lifelinkeres
micalovits: Strangle and pyro is also good
WiJohn: Looks good
warboss5: That works
345tom: I think Id strangle because you can see your nto using it on anything better
korvys: And flip the Landing
Diabore: that also turns on glorybringer guaranteed
lirazel64: Soren, shut the [REDACTED] up!
WiJohn: You can make a token

electra310: Choo choo, perfect deck
Diabore: we did ave fun, thanks arena
WiJohn: Can only durdle so much this cube
warboss5: I feel like your opponent would answer differently, lol
QuixoticScrivener: They haven't asked me that question in over a year.
cleric_ofthe_true_god: wow, we found the allen key
Feriority: I think OP had a pretty sketchy keep, lots of expensive cards and couldn't cast their cheap one
ThorSokar: I DID have fun dumpstering my opponent, TY for asking!
Diabore: @Feriority they had settle on 4, we just took it from them
warboss5: !card adanto vanguard
LRRbot: Adanto Vanguard [1W] | Creature — Vampire Soldier [1/1] | As long as Adanto Vanguard is attacking, it gets +2/+0. / Pay 4 life: Adanto Vanguard gains indestructible until end of turn.
kaziel0: Not much, but after a bit off of Magic Arena, hit Platinum in constructed. Wheeeee!
Joecool190: its come back with a vengeance this week i found
korvys: I got it the other day as well
electra310: They just assume you're having fun
korvys: Guess they're doing a round of feedback or whatever
Diabore: quarterly requirement?
warboss5: Yeah, I've been seeing it a lot lately too. Prolly trying to pump up their year-end numbers, lol
Joecool190: i have gotten it at least a dozen times this week, maybe more
WiJohn: Is that young peezy's music?!
345tom: I would bet its to do with being a certain amount of time from a set release
Diabore: this is fine
345tom: So they can see how people are liking the format after it has settled for like a month and they know if they might want to change something
warboss5: Ow
RemoraVox: a new deck archetype: fun
Diabore: now 6 them
NewtyNewts: Whoops
Juliamon: They probably expect more people online for the hols so it's a good opportunity to collect data
WiJohn: So next round they take 6 then dead?
warboss5: Oh yeah, with touch, there's little they can do
Diabore: we win
warboss5: GG
WiJohn: Well, they're dead
Joecool190: do they die?
matthaus_c: O-Ring ftw
Diabore: touch exiles, 10 on damage
warboss5: Don't over think it
chrono2x: Yeah, touch as an o-ring
warboss5: NO
Joecool190: no
WiJohn: Yep
beneckja: no
micalovits: Nope
matthaus_c: no, the Channel is a blink
brainbosh: Not flash
Grimnus: Its an O ring
beneckja: draw
warboss5: Enchantment mode is an ORing, discarding is NOT
TheOneCalledStu: dont channel
Joecool190: its a ficker if you channel
beneckja: it has not flash
Grimnus: Either works
warboss5: Ohhh, okay
samu_btdp1985: no
Favre_the_Undead: end step
Joecool190: you only lose life
EvilBadman: why not exile it forever
matthaus_c: yeah sure doesn't matter
kaziel0: Oh no, James will be at 18 life instead of 20.
bartimus_thundercask: you only have 8 damage
Diabore: @bartimus_thundercask sure looks 10 to me
Fruan: Deck seems good
pn55: seabatClap seabatClap seabatClap
WiJohn: Yeah it wuold have
Grimnus: Yes either wouldve won
micalovits: Would still have worked yes
Rootpotato: yes
WowoT: yes it would have
Rootpotato: james is right
Alex_Frostfire: Yep, seems fine.
warboss5: Actually, come to think of it, using the discard would have worked AND is plays around Pact of Negation
ThorSokar: yes
YeetTheRich_: sure mister fancy line pants
Finalsora811: !chat
LRRbot: Chat? Engaging in mimicry?
RemoraVox: i wish i was even half as good as this
beneckja: yes, you are right
micalovits: Just gone more wrong if there is any weird free spells
Diabore: !chat
LRRbot: Seriously, just never listen to chat.
matthaus_c: @warboss5 if they played Pact of Negation we still just win benginLul
cleric_ofthe_true_god: WOW,
Alex_Frostfire: I don't think we needed to worry about Pact of Negation.
WiJohn: Quiet robot, we're great!
QuixoticScrivener: James wanted the flawless victory.
Feriority: It would have styled on them harder
cleric_ofthe_true_god: 2 in a row, good deal
warboss5: @warboss5 Its more of a conceptual Pact, lol
samu_btdp1985: yes but it wasn't relevant thankfully
Grimnus: Harness your curse
WiJohn: Yep
warboss5: Oh yeah
warboss5: Let the growth begin
Joecool190: i think so
electra310: Luminarch Aspirant is great
Diabore: either that or vanguard
micalovits: UG don't have much removal
warboss5: They have the counter or they don't, such is life
Diabore: pray for a land and monument
NewtyNewts: Big oof
WiJohn: Hey look a dumb bird!
Feriority: "conjure the power nine" what
TheWriterAleph: cacaw
Alex_Frostfire: They shuffled five lands into their deck, oh no.
tehfewl: Alchemy cards 🤮
warboss5: Yeah, Lumie again
beneckja: @Alex_Frostfire and a recall, and a time walk
WiJohn: I'm pretty sure this cube would be better if they did nothing except remove the Alchemy
Diabore: @Alex_Frostfire and 3 lands in a trench coat
RemoraVox: black ops lotus
micalovits: Rude
warboss5: They REALLY don't want you having Lumie in play
micalovits: Lul
Diabore: op having a good time
Al_Azil3: That's cute
warboss5: MORE MANA!
KingOfDoma: rude
korvys: I'm pretty sure Arena would be better if they did nothing by remove the alchemy, to be fair
TheWriterAleph: welp.
LordDestont: Kenji loves Oracle
Feriority: Power 9 tribal
micalovits: Next turn seems fun
Juliamon: I'm sure there are people out there who enjoy alchemy.
AugmentingPath: don't worry, you'll get them on deck check for having two lotuses. It's restricted, after all
micalovits: Next isn't fun anymore
ThorSokar: wtf
Joecool190: I legit like alchemy in historic
warboss5: This is some trolly nonsense right here
Favre_the_Undead: triple spell?
warboss5: Spirit + Announcement?
WiJohn: Sure

matthaus_c: you put Maul on the Vigilance thing
Diabore: no on the vigilant
beneckja: no on the token
WiJohn: Sure then the token on the spirit and you have two good blocks
Joecool190: i think on a token
kaziel0: Put it on one of hte soldiers
micalovits: Maul on the token that can attack probably
Alex_Frostfire: If you stick it on the vigilance token you can get in for 3.
warboss5: Yeah, put it on the token
El_Funko: on the flyer surely?
matthaus_c: the one that can attack
WiJohn: Oh that's better
Joecool190: thats the sick one
micalovits: Wrong token, but fair
Diabore: the one that.. can...attack...
Diabore: still get 1 in

WiJohn: Spirit realm touchin' that
graal_smith: I touchie da wurmcoil
matthaus_c: got a silver bullet with that wurmcoil's name on it
Feriority: Send that straight to the shadow realm
micalovits: Straight to exile you go!
warboss5: Block both I'm thinking
Drathak: did wurmcoil just moo
Diabore: om nom nom
kaziel0: Oh boy. Lucky Coil
kaziel0: Err enchant
warboss5: Kill the real Oracle first
RemoraVox: i senda tha wurmcoil to a-space!! oh!
micalovits: Do we have lethal with channel?
warboss5: Om nom nom
brainbosh: Is wurmcoil leave the battlefield or die?
Diabore: i think historian was lethal actually
warboss5: Spirit?
micalovits: Still looking good
matthaus_c: yeah, Historian + Channel was just lethal
warboss5: Eh, Math is for Blockers
korvys: Oh, the channel, yeah
Diabore: still golden but yeah
Drathak: woulda been 18
AugmentingPath: y'know, unless they go runner runner ancestrals
Alex_Frostfire: I wonder how many moxes they scried to bottom.
warboss5: Okay... lol
Diabore: @Drathak we just hit for 10, it would have been 20
warboss5: Moxen for days
WiJohn: Powerful card, not the time
micalovits: Just no board wipe please!
warboss5: He's desperate
EvilBadman: they digging
korvys: They need to redraw timewalk
Diabore: @warboss5 they
TheWriterAleph: diggy diggy dwarf
Juliamon: !they
LRRbot: Reminder! Your opponent may not be a "he" so try to use "they" or "opp" instead!
AugmentingPath: man, love that mox thump sound. Feels a little disproportionate
warboss5: @warboss5 Yes, sorry, I always forget
Feriority: The power 27
WiJohn: If you Heliod and give everything life link do you just win?
Spades_Slicc: What is james playing?
Joecool190: so they lose now right
Drathak: I'll admit they're dedicated
electra310: That was a lot of sound and fury
QuixoticScrivener: and not in the good way
squ3e: Theyre playing with powoer
kaziel0: @Spades_Slicc Boros Aggro
Drathak: to playing powerful cards
Spades_Slicc: @kaziel0 format?
micalovits: Lotus->recal time
matthaus_c: what's the worst that could happen
Feriority: @Spades_Slicc Santa Hat aggro
Alex_Frostfire: Odd choice.
samu_btdp1985: we still win right
warboss5: I think they're just having fun at this point
DrFromage: Do they have anything to do with all the mana?
matthaus_c: @Spades_Slicc cube
Bugberry: wheel spinning
kaziel0: Whew
Diabore: thats it
Joecool190: o7 opponent
TheWriterAleph: omg opp stop
Brianlive: The Power 9*4
Diabore: gg
Kumakaori: tap tap tap tap tap tap concede
AugmentingPath: These power cards seem bad. Probably safe to unban in legacy
TheWriterAleph: doogCLAPPING
WiJohn: Man that concede took way too many clicks
serramarkov: Yay!
KingOfDoma: Hang on, I had to step away to do work... did we claw back from the brink on that one????
Al_Azil3: They need so much card draw for 3xP9 do be good
Alex_Frostfire: Hey, at least OP is having fun.
electra310: Tap-tap-tap-tap-taptaptaptaptap-Concede
Diabore: i dont fault op for wanting to play with fun cards there
Drathak: they just needed to draw one recall
matthaus_c: they need Paradox Engine for Oracle of the Alpha to be good benginLul
Wassermannen: I just lost a cube game after activating the meld ability on an Urza that I had brought back with God-Pharaoh’s Gift which exiled both cards and gave me nothing lrrAWW
WiJohn: The only time I've seen oracle of the alpha work they had dsiplacer kitten and mighstone/weakstone out so every mox had a draw two attached
Bugberry: could be worse
earlgrey82: nicely done. a lot of people would have conceded on the second power nine.
micalovits: A bit to slow?
micalovits: Or just draw well
Diabore: might be a mull tbh
WiJohn: Mull I think
electra310: What's the worst that could happen?
Gekyouryuu: cursed to never draw land with this hand
Diabore: as pv says, people dont mull enough
micalovits: Keep you like a greedy goblin
matthaus_c: what if we draw 1 drop 2 drop land lrrBEEJ
brainbosh: If you miss the land draw you have nothing
warboss5: Oh yeah, ship that
echochrisx: Risk it for the boys
Alex_Frostfire: You're going second, too.
WiJohn: Much better
warboss5: Much better
ThorSokar: better
micalovits: Seems good
Juliamon: We have a start here
warboss5: First turn Shatterskull tapped?
Diabore: yeah
micalovits: Yea
El_Funko: as first yeah
warboss5: So say we all
Diabore: youre the driver, we're just loud
matthaus_c: I think you should Pay the 3, for dominance lrrBEEJ
El_Funko: he doesn't even have a hat
Al_Azil3: The Kaldheim music is so nice
warboss5: Vanguard first... I think
WiJohn: Vanguard for sure
matthaus_c: Vanguard so we can block and take 4 from their 2/2 :p
warboss5: And it keeps spirt safe until you can trigger it
WiJohn: It's more durable and you can't double spell for the spirit for a bit
Diabore: plains actually good, turns on historian
warboss5: Since the Monkeybot buffed the prince, can we call him King Louie now?
Alex_Frostfire: Could have blocked and paid 4 life to give it indestructible ;)
Diabore: i like fable here
CAKHost: Thanks for the stream. Good night all.
warboss5: Yeah, block might be good here
warboss5: Plus, treasure from the goblin helps to trigger Spirit
Diabore: youd take 8, they can likely unearth
warboss5: Oh dear
matthaus_c: oof
Drathak: CoolCat
matthaus_c: show me something good, Kiki
warboss5: Just the barrens, I think
micalovits: Discard barrens I guess?
WiJohn: Pitch barrens and lava?
Diabore: grim barrens?
warboss5: Grim triggers the spirit
micalovits: Lava man block atleast
WiJohn: Definitely barren, maybe grim
Diabore: grim isnt an answer and we need answers unfortunately
micalovits: Thats bad
WiJohn: That might be it
Diabore: ouchie
warboss5: Yeah, this is... not great
matthaus_c: if we untap with Kiki we get to give two instances of double strike lrrBEEJ
warboss5: I feel like there wasn't much our deck could do to get out of this spot
WiJohn: They want the counter on the chariot
Joecool190: they want it on the cart
Diabore: they want vigilant cat car
warboss5: Well, except Magmaquake, were it still in the deck, lol
matthaus_c: Magmaquake would do great against that 5/5 we're sitting across, wouldn't it :p
LRRTwitter: @loadingreadyrun> Epic is looking fine.. or rather they are being Fined. Time for CheckPoint! | ||
micalovits: Magmaquake would kill us right now sadly
Diabore: not lookin good boss
Diabore: !card magmaquake
LRRbot: Magmaquake [XRR] | Instant | Magmaquake deals X damage to each creature without flying and each planeswalker.
matthaus_c: @micalovits I think you're confusing it for another card
Diabore: doesnt hit players
micalovits: OH right, not players
WiJohn: Just don't kill the monkey :)
Joecool190: and instant
WiJohn: Prince would have eaten it
matthaus_c: keruga, jamaica
matthaus_c: @WiJohn double strike
matthaus_c: wait we lost historian
matthaus_c: nvm me
Diabore: didnt crew first
Diabore: interesting
Diabore: also, i think we needed to kill monkey in response to retreat trigger
WiJohn: I feel like you need to keep kiki and the spirit to get some kind of engine going
Diabore: wy 2 on the 6/6?
matthaus_c: Unholy Heat
WiJohn: But I think you die then to hope we draw a board wipe?
tehfewl: pick car, send a message
Feriority: Blink the chariot, more kitties
matthaus_c: yeah the charitable christmas play would have been to blink the cat car :p
tehfewl: some times you ranch, some times you get ranched
WiJohn: Well, that needs to die
micalovits: Id just play monument?
WiJohn: Can probably wait a turn
ChrisPjuegos: or fable
micalovits: Strangle is such a bad use of mana I think
matthaus_c: oof
Drathak: rip spirit
matthaus_c: there goes our spirit
WiJohn: Bye spirit!
WarKr0: chandra, the incredibly modest pyromancer
micalovits: Rude
WiJohn: Still probably the right play
matthaus_c: unfortunate peezy
WiJohn: Chandra maybe?
WiJohn: She has a board whipe
WarKr0: i like chandra
WarKr0: we can keep them off it for a while
WarKr0: it also just wins the game on its own probably
tehfewl: awful lot of red spells for 2 swamps in play
Brianlive: I love Shivan Devastator in my Halana & Elena deck
korvys: !card unholy heat
LRRbot: Unholy Heat [R] | Instant | Unholy Heat deals 2 damage to target creature or planeswalker. / Delirium — Unholy Heat deals 6 damage instead if there are four or more card types among cards in your graveyard.

micalovits: I like pyro+heliod over killing chandra
WarKr0: hitting her means she cant downtick
WiJohn: seems correct?
warboss5: Pyro and Heliod?
matthaus_c: do we care enough about the elementals to spend Hea?
matthaus_c: *heat
Cetaceni: why didnt you heat the walker and kill chandra with your 2 creatures
serramarkov: Hey, Chandra, snitches get stitches.
micalovits: Walkers makes thopters when it dies

korvys: If you lifelink a soldier, and attack, you can put the +1 on the flier to block?
WiJohn: Walker is one of my all-time favorite designs
SydPreviouslyHeadache: in the right decks, it and walking ballista are absurd cards
WiJohn: Ewww...
warboss5: So many Durgans!
WiJohn: Pitch both and hope?
warboss5: Pitch both I think
matthaus_c: peezy isn't getting us outta this
warboss5: Come on, lets see that time out, lol
Verrain2: I don't think dragons should be vampires. Unfair.

WiJohn: Okay that was funny though
cleric_ofthe_true_god: oh wow
matthaus_c: ohhhh boy
kaziel0: 1 oofa and 1 doofa please.

micalovits: Why is it so loud o.o
matthaus_c: do you not enjoy the sounds of SHINE
matthaus_c: if only Glorybanger was a 20/20
warboss5: Glory with enough to give it lifelink
micalovits: That... Might keep us alive? Kills shavan and gains 8 right?
WiJohn: Are they mono-red splash dimir for thief?
Eywind: non-dragon unfortunately

Diabore: so kill thief gain 8?
Diabore: er, 9
MrPipboy3000: Lifelink it for double gains
EOstby: Give lifelink before letting the trigger resolve.
Favre_the_Undead: lifelink?

matthaus_c: remember to hold priority to give lifelink
micalovits: F
Diabore: chance to respond, thanks op
warboss5: Will still get 4 from hitting op
Diabore: still dead but still
matthaus_c: unfortunately we're staring at 11 in the air
micalovits: Also forgot the sack sadly
warboss5: Ah well, it was a good run
WiJohn: I guess we needed to send treasure gobo too
Diabore: @WiJohn couldnt lifelink both, and if we could theyd have just sacced the blocker
Diabore: they showed tey knew the interaction
wooda77: Good Game

WiJohn: @SydPreviouslyHeadache It wa great, I love it when control gets too clever
Juliamon: James keeps saying "ragoon" and I'm not convinced it's on purpose
Verrain2: I choose to believe Ian will be cooking the crab that blocked James in the last game.
jessicaengle: Cra-cha-cha Ragoon
adept_nekomancer: @Juliamon I think one of the earlier iterations of the upcoming schedule had "Ragoon" written on it.
Juliamon: Yes, because James writes them
adept_nekomancer: Ah, was not aware he was the author. Nevermind, then.
warboss5: Ragoon feels like a slur against Italian people

BrowneePoints: chat it is -41 right now
BrowneePoints: send blankets
Simonark: Food AND Drink? Fancy!
jessicaengle: @bv310 Were they good? Few things more disappointing in eating out than a sub-par rangoon
bv310: @bv310 Wildly fine. Rangoons were great, sauce was disappointing
Juliamon: Good rangoons shouldn't need sauce
jibkat: is it time for 🦀?
RockPusher: "Who is it?" "Goons." "Who?" "Crab Rangoons!" 🦀🦀🦀
saucemaster5000: @bv310 I am never disappointing b310, nor am I impressive. I am precisely average when I mean to!

345tom: I just realised the last time I caught this Live, Ian was making cheese, and leaving it for a months long process. How was his cheese?
corianderd: where have you had them then?
jessicaengle: Wait there are crab rangoon memes?
electra310: Cori asks an important question
Spritz_T: like fortune cookies
electra310: Where are you putting crab rangoons?
TheWriterAleph: wait what? where do crab rangoon trees grow then??
goombalax: I've had a crab rangoon as a bonus item from our favorite chinese place
princess_intell: so we get a stream and cori gets free dinner! win-win!
AshBurnem: one ton wrappers? That's a lot of wrappers.
Spritz_T: i've mostly had them at chinese food places
TheWriterAleph: i keep wanting to call them crab-goons, but that's something completely different
Simonark: Never trust a mouth prophet.
NotCainNorAbel: learning how easy this is going to be is probably not going to be good for me
RockPusher: TTSF and Deep Frying… please please tell me you have an extinguisher handy
Evil_John_Cena: so it's some bastardization of a dish that only exists in places outside of the native country?
jessicaengle: How does he know it's easy or yummy? I don't understand this AU
TheDailyMapleSyrup: It's from the 50's i belive
azninsect: yes i am here for cram ramgoom
princess_intell: you could fry anything in a wonton wrapper and have it taste amazing tbh

jessieimproved: We watch Kenji a lot, although that head mount camera is too much for me
jibkat: "the dish was probably invented in the United States by Joe Young working under Victor Bergeron, founder of Trader Vic's."
Juliamon: What a waste of pineapple juice!
Spanked42: I like Kenji's channel but have not yet been brave enough to try any of his recipies
bv310: I decided I was going to make a drink alongside the stream, but then remembered that I just bought a bottle of Japanese Whisky, so my mixology was quite simple
BrowneePoints: possibly based off a dish made in hawaii a decade prior
Electrodyne: mighty Joe young?
Mysticman89: pineapple wet > pea wet

TheMerricat: "Since most East Asians are lactose intolerant, including cream cheese in their diet would not be common for those cultures."
Verrain2: Ah Krab.
Juliamon: I've NEVER had a crab rangoon with actual crab
TheWriterAleph: tiem for cwab
shurtal: THE RANGOON
electra310: It does not taste better with actual crab
RealGamerCow: I made Korean Mandu last night, and I made my own wrappers. Would recommend buying pre-made
BrowneePoints: I LOVE Americanized Chinese food
RockPusher: "You Flavoured Pollock!" is an excellent alternative insult :D
jessicaengle: @electra310 Maybe it needs more crab?
Natural_Ones_Only: fromage!
shurtal: is this one of those rare instances where we have time to gab AND crab?
Juliamon: The crab element is the least relevant of a crab rangoon
electra310: Yeah, crab is sort of optional in these things
Juliamon: What's important is the deep-fried wonton.
bv310: This is primarily a cream cheese delivery system
Verrain2: Can confirm.
TheWriterAleph: @shurtal multitasking
jessicaengle: I think lobster rangoons exist. Or did I hallucinate that?
BrowneePoints: there's a local Vietnamese place that make crab rangoons with real crab
RockPusher: Grab crab to gab - it's like a conch, only pinch!
electra310: "Deep-fried wonton full of cream cheese" is the tech here
Juliamon: Lobster rangoons absolutely exist and aren't worth it
shurtal: @TheWriterAleph well, crabs DO have multiple appendages, so we are just aspiring to carcinization
