Thefluffiestguineapig: I don't know if that's quite correct. Also sorry for the pedantry, I have been doing some editing for people under the same creative company as me and boy, some people just pick the bigger word that sounds similar to one they know is correct and it makes me want to tear my hair out
Juliamon: It was a deliberate choice
Thefluffiestguineapig: With the LRR crew I realized after I put that it probably was and likely a Cam choice if I had to guess
Juliamon: Most !advice is a very specific reference that happens to sound amusing out of context.
Thefluffiestguineapig: I do truly deeply love their comedic slight rotation of vocabulary I just need to remove my brain from "these people are idiots but I have to work with them" to "these people are funny and references and goofs are good"
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Juliamon I love that about the way all of the mods as a unit manage that command and sometimes coordinate it with quotes, you guys have a truly masterful touch with a lot of this
Thefluffiestguineapig: The only things you don't have a masterful touch with are twitch stupid things
Thefluffiestguineapig: And that can't be helped
Juliamon: It is mostly thanks to LRRbot's parents making it easily accessible!
Juliamon: (well, relatively)
Thefluffiestguineapig: As accessible as is reasonable
Thefluffiestguineapig: Meaning within the bounds of the programming without pouring lots and lots of hours into things that might not be solvable
Juliamon: sometimes it gets confused if there's more than one mod accessing it at the same time, and sometimes it decides to delete a command for no reason, but overall it's easier than most chatbots to work with
Juliamon: (speaking of chatbots, we are working on getting ~lasttoot online)
Thefluffiestguineapig: I can only speak for myself but from people in chat's reactions the mods are deeply appreciated for the work you guys do and we and from what I've gathered the crew themselves try to make your lives as minimally hectic from our ends as possible
TehAmelie: !advice
LRRbot: Shave the sky.
Thefluffiestguineapig: Not the worst advice as long as you moisturize after
Thefluffiestguineapig: !findquote shave
LRRbot: Quote #756: "Everyone has to have a dream shave once in a while." —Heather [2015-09-28]
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Juliamon Sorry not sure what that one means, is it to link to Mastadon rather than the bird hell site?
TehAmelie: but, sergeModLove
Juliamon: yup!
Thefluffiestguineapig: @TehAmelie I've been told by people before that I am truly a segue hard mode, so don't fret. Even some of my fellow masters students can't follow after I make a comment in the response boards
TehAmelie: i mean, that's my default
wench_tacular: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: LRRMtG (James, and/or Graham, and/or Adam play Magic: The Gathering Arena! Game: Magic: The Gathering) at Thu 02:00 PM PDT (1m from now).
Juliamon: LRR is home to many fans (and crew) with difficult segues
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Juliamon Awesome, that will be useful for those of us who have jumped aboard the great long ship with appropriately nerdy ice age theming to try to make our lives better. Also you all so it's not a chore to get the link
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Juliamon Their champion (for all senses of the word) probably being Ian
Thefluffiestguineapig: @TehAmelie Difficult segues? I really enjoy using the most labyrinthine ones after someone tries to mansplain something like my own masters thesis to me
TehAmelie: one thing i just recently heard about neurodivergency is that one should simply say what one wants from people, if there's a time issue
Thefluffiestguineapig: @TehAmelie Or just generally. I find directness is the way things stay happiest in my life

TehAmelie: i.e.: somebody stands in the way of a door you want to go through right now. don't tell them "i want to go through here." don't tell them "you are in the way." tell them "please take a few steps back"
Thefluffiestguineapig: lrrSIG

TheMerricat: You mean we call you quiet during let's nope?

YeomanAres: Yes

Then copy each card exiled with Arcane Bombardment. You may cast any number of the copies without paying their mana costs.
Seth_Erickson: Bike is always fine
Thefluffiestguineapig: So is this drafting a good deck or lolol memes?
josh1273436: Jeskai Spells?

InsaneVioletMage: Take the strike it is the prettiest
Bugberry: if there's any fortell cards those cast from exile.
InsaneVioletMage: Do we know if this is a curated set or is it just all the cards from a few sets
FPNY41: It's Arena Mystery Boosters
CAKHost: !birb

RokuNalaar: I've been...expecting you..
GhostofJeffGoldblum: I have no rejoinder well played.
Earthenone: there is some mystery on this show, we never know the hosts until it airs
myknorman: I say that to my students every day to annoy them
couchboyj: Once more we meet again at last
myknorman: “What are you doing here?”
FPNY41: bronze sword makes creatures modified
kumatsu: was that the draft where you were passing to Fugi?
WeatheredPeach: Audacious thief this late? Time to pivot
Sage0fMadness: callous dismissal is nice
Earthenone: it will win hearts and minds
Bacon_Trail: Just wait for pack 3
couchboyj: Time for the pack three pivot to good cards.
Earthenone: rebuff is fine
lamina5432: tectonic rift?
kumatsu: okay but recurring land destruction seabatBRAIN
Earthenone: its mana leek at home
WeatheredPeach: Good cards is an overrated archetype
Bugberry: basically mana leak
Sage0fMadness: UR is open, it's just a weird format
Pywodwagon: I've heard it's really uncurated
Pywodwagon: just piles of cards

Garfman314: is this historic draft?
Diabore: it enables itself
micalovits: Taunter is dumb
Gekyouryuu: Oh hey one of your preview cards
violetblight: taunter's just good here3
itsr67: taunter ends the game real fast
uchihab7: ooo another lizard
McGurganatorZX: oh let's get weird
violetblight: this formats weird
Thefluffiestguineapig: So to be completely upfront I haven't played much MtG ever due to harsh gatekeeping by people who said they would help me learn but I worked at a board game place that was also a lgs for a lot of the MtG community and got really into the lore so I do not know how things work in game but am hoping to learn
McGurganatorZX: @violetblight accurate
Gekyouryuu: That's a weird way to win a game of magic
Thefluffiestguineapig: Are we just Izzet nonsense?
Juliamon: We seem to be just Izzet nonsense, yes
McGurganatorZX: @Thefluffiestguineapig TBH? This is a good stream for that. I think the LRR folks do a good job keeping things accessible on stream
Thefluffiestguineapig: I do enjoy some nonsense and explosive nonsense when safety is at least mentioned is fun
James_the_Dabbler: Draft time? OwO
Nydestroyer: oh I was confused on the format and just realized its chaos
Juliamon: I'm annoyed that there doesn't seem to be any official page on the mothership regarding this format
Thefluffiestguineapig: @McGurganatorZX They do that with their other things (I have been around LRR a while but not had the energy to devote to the MtG stuff) so I figured this is a decent on ramp
Juliamon: Just lots of annoyed threads on the Arena subreddit
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Nydestroyer That could be the subtitle of the chaos draft format

Genomancer_: Brushwaaaagg
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Juliamon I have described a lot of subreddits I used to enjoy and now can't deal with this way
Bugberry: people say they miss vanillas, not much different.
Bugberry: That card is cool but never get it to do what I want, it always dies first.
violetblight: oh man this format has dreadmaw i love this
Thefluffiestguineapig: This might not be relevant but which of the little helper buddies is ours? Is it the Ent or the adorable thorn bundle that I don't know the name of?
Seth_Erickson: counter magic :)
Seth_Erickson: I meant to do this face :O
Garfman314: ours is on the left
renaissance_rat: the thorn buddy aka brushwag
Nydestroyer: I could guess any spell. I am gussing spell swindle
Thefluffiestguineapig: Wait, if this is uncurated does that mean there are the nightmare possibilities just around? Like infect? That seems bad
Thefluffiestguineapig: @renaissance_rat He/she/they is adorable and I love them so much
thebluecosmonaut: sup besties
renaissance_rat: @Thefluffiestguineapig you should look up the card brushwagg then
Nydestroyer: auto von tapper got them
loufghyslaufey: El-Okos...
Bugberry: @loufghyslaufey random storm cards aren't usually great by themselves in Limited.
Sage0fMadness: @Thefluffiestguineapig Sure but it's really unlikely to have a density of them to be a problem. infect isn't good when you have like a random 2/2 with it
loufghyslaufey: The ring Tempts you . . . LUL
Nydestroyer: it wasnt very good
Thefluffiestguineapig: @thebluecosmonaut Sorry, my cats are my besties no contest and humans can only take second place
GreatWahooney: I love that they put the scuffed up card back in this
violetblight: Backstreet Bruiser, thats the fighting game you play right adam
loufghyslaufey: Magecrafts, or mono-brown artifacts... lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR
GreatWahooney: yeah I'm just glad it's a thing on Arena in general
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Sage0fMadness That's fair, and these are only used for draft, right? So the constructed still has their curation?
Thefluffiestguineapig: !card brushwagg
LRRbot: Brushwagg [1GG] | Creature — Brushwagg [3/2] | Whenever Brushwagg blocks or becomes blocked, it gets −2/+2 until end of turn.
micalovits: I like taunter
Sage0fMadness: @Thefluffiestguineapig this has no effect on people's constructed decks, correct

Thefluffiestguineapig: Also just looked up the card Brushwagg and they are adorable! I can see the place they might occupy in the ecosystem and feel like they are living caltrops
micalovits: Rude!
loufghyslaufey: The Boys: Are Back, Duh Boyz: Arr-Backs
James_the_Dabbler: Coulda told you that
tetradd01: I wish arena gave you a little indicator if you've played a land for turn
James_the_Dabbler: Def hurts tho
GhostofJeffGoldblum: unfoooooortunate
Seth_Erickson: @tetradd01 they do if it's a basic it'll be seperated from the other basics
GhostofJeffGoldblum: didn't you know? twitch chat play with perfect information at all times.
violetblight: yknow, 6 mana up wityh a 5 you know about, classic disdainful stroke gambit
Seth_Erickson: It also reads on the land you played "entered the battlefield this turn"
James_the_Dabbler: I know all things OwO
Ukon_Cairns: theres no other card they could have kept 5+ blue mana up for, not a one PrideShrug
James_the_Dabbler: (This is a joke for legal reasons)
loufghyslaufey: Yes, y e s . . . Torch the flier...
Bugberry: dismissal can also bounce the enchantment.
Seth_Erickson: are they dead if we sleep the 3/3
Seth_Erickson: because we might sleep and callous next turn
Seth_Erickson: I meant the 2/3 so they couldn't tap our flier woops
Seth_Erickson: I think we could also just sleep the officer
Nydestroyer: dosnt the exile sort of matter due to the amplifier? or is that not the card I think it is
micalovits: Bounce the tapper maybe?
Nydestroyer: oh yea thats the wrong one
anbuagent12: The first thing I thought when I saw this event was, "This is Adam's Perfect Format" how accurate has that been thus far?
Seth_Erickson: !card Brash Taunter
LRRbot: Brash Taunter [4R] | Creature — Goblin [1/1] | Indestructible / Whenever Brash Taunter is dealt damage, it deals that much damage to target opponent. / {2}{R}, {T}: Brash Taunter fights another target creature.
Seth_Erickson: Can we just pump the giests and fight them with the taunter
ReachW subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 20 months!
ReachW: Magic and the Gathering thereof.
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, ReachW! (Today's storm count: 11)
Seth_Erickson: We could have dismissaled and sleep'd and fought the giests that turn with the taunter and kill them right both of these lines work though and are very interesting.
trebuchetboy: Love that card dougdougTeeth
Bugberry: it was also yalls spoiler too, seems appropriate
lamina5432: theres a 2 mana non indestructable version
kumatsu: "People made an entire deck around Boros Reckoner and Boros Charm, what if we put them on one card?"
trebuchetboy: Its a favorite emote of mine
Sage0fMadness: @Seth_Erickson they can tap the taunter before the geists get pumped though
Bugberry: Spitemare is proto-boros reckoner
kumatsu: I say that as someone who played the Blasphemous Act deck
Bugberry: !card Spitemare
LRRbot: Spitemare [2{R/W}{R/W}] | Creature — Elemental [3/3] | Whenever Spitemare is dealt damage, it deals that much damage to any target.
tehfewl: getting weird on em
Seth_Erickson: @Sage0fMadness mmm true but they tapped during combat the giests which left us completely open post combat
Sage0fMadness: @Seth_Erickson they had multiple ways to tap
Seth_Erickson: @Sage0fMadness but that turn they only had one because they needed two humans to tap since the officer was already tapped so they had only the one tap and it was used.
Seth_Erickson: Yo dude you're looking huge
duke_dice: howdy all.
Travilogue: LRR just needs to hire a makeup technician to get everybody camera ready.
Martin_FcG: Looks crisp
GreatWahooney: now that we have zombie, orc and sliver armies, what other creature type would you like to have an army of?
Bugberry: izzet tempo
James_the_Dabbler: Wait there are sliver armies???
Martin_FcG: Minotaur
jobygoby: @greatwahooney god army
Seth_Erickson: @James_the_Dabbler there are
GreatWahooney: @James_the_Dabbler as of Commander Legends, yes
Nydestroyer: yea from the new silver precon
GreatWahooney: @GreatWahooney I mean Masters
Seth_Erickson: You can feasibly create an Orc Slive Zombie army
djalternative: yeah. you could get anti-gloss powder everyone uses for on camera use
Martin_FcG: True, goblins would be great
Ukon_Cairns: soldier army letsgo
micalovits: We goblin players are just sad bowmaster wasn't a goblin
kumatsu: Townsfolk army
Pywodwagon: bird army
Nydestroyer: human army
Nydestroyer: LUL
Martin_FcG: Soldier is another good one.
jobygoby: What about a god dragon avatar advisor army
Garfman314: most goblin decks seem to become goblin armies anyway
ghizmou: beeble army
GreatWahooney: I want an advisor army
Seth_Erickson: deck is cooking
ReachW: Brushwagg Army
kumatsu: perfect deck, no notes
FPNY41: Izzet Good Stuff
Izandai: That was convincing.
FPNY41: Yes it is
Bugberry: Adam even started saying this deck would have no wins.
Seth_Erickson: Jace is dead maybe
micalovits: Izzet good? Yes it is
Bearudite: man, fuck jace
rosesmcgee: Amass Jace? I like it
Garfman314: i mean, i have lots of fun with my saprolings. would not mind a fungus army
Izandai: Most popular planeswalker. Or was at one point, anyway.
Bearudite: I said it
TwitchTVsFrank: Lol
MoxCubitZirconium: Got Store Championship happening at my LGS this weekend. LOTR Sealed… any tips? Pull good stuff right?
tetradd01: I love when Soldier 76 puts on his glasses and says "We're all Jace now"
jobygoby: Rate chaos draft from L to W what is it
FPNY41: does Jace vape?
kumatsu: @FPNY41 and he never shuts up about it
renaissance_rat: @MoxCubitZirconium open a ring and bowmasters
Seth_Erickson: easy game
Ukon_Cairns: never didnt have it
Jethrain: never even once punished
micalovits: Never didn't have it
violetblight: hello highlights
MoxCubitZirconium: @renaissance_rat Got it!
Sage0fMadness: Bombs will be Barded
Seth_Erickson: Eldraine right
renaissance_rat: someone across from me in a draft did that once and i was so jealous
Ukon_Cairns: arcane bombarding a divination sounds quite nice
TwitchTVsFrank: If ben afleck is jace who is the other guy?
DAC169: got plenty of land now NODDERS
Bearudite: matt damon
Seth_Erickson: I mean the 2/3 lifelink does counter our Taunter's damage
Bugberry: ajani is Jeff Bridges
jobygoby: !card precise strike
LRRbot: Precise Strike [R] | Instant | Target creature gets +1/+0 and gains first strike until end of turn.
TimIAm: Matt Damon is Tibalt from Boston
DAC169: incoming exile
kumatsu: oh, that does it
Seth_Erickson: that's one of them
Pywodwagon: that does it
micalovits: That does it
Izandai: I really wish I could contribute to this conversation but I know nothing about Chasing Amy.
DAC169: or forced sac
Thefluffiestguineapig: For me Jace Beleran would absolutely be a competitive vaper
GreatWahooney: oof
FPNY41: don't ask questions you don't want the answers to
jobygoby: Rankle killing a brash taunter in draft should’ve seen in coming
petey_vonwho: Ok, this format is great. I just played a turn 4 Drakuseth
Bugberry: Ron Pearlman played a cat-man Beauty and the Beast, so he could be a good Ajani.
Thefluffiestguineapig: But Jace the Mild Sculptor would grow his own strain of super powerful shrooms
WeatheredPeach: "Let's kill someone. As a prank." - Rankle, probably
jobygoby: @petey_vonwho how
Seth_Erickson: Our time to shine is now
Ukon_Cairns: rankle probably should be a bomb, but they printed far more bonkers cards
Seth_Erickson: instant speed spells on their turn too PogChamp
micalovits: This is gonna be fun
Sage0fMadness: @Bugberry Ron Perlman would be a great Ajani, you're spot on
Thefluffiestguineapig: If she is having a sane moment Helena Bonam-Carter could be Liliana
LibraryWitchKei: Prankle, Ranked
Seth_Erickson: I like dismissal and hold up run aground
Izandai: Callous Dismissal into either Befuddle or Startle.
petey_vonwho: Druid of the cowl, into weirding wood and hope tender
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Sage0fMadness He also historically has done great acting in a huge amount of prosthetics so it could be partially practical
Izandai: Start with Callous Dismissal.
Seth_Erickson: Aground is instant speed I'd start with dismissal I think
micalovits: Or play the epicure and startle?
renaissance_rat: !card arcane bombardment
LRRbot: Arcane Bombardment [4RR] | Enchantment | Whenever you cast your first instant or sorcery spell each turn, exile an instant or sorcery card at random from your graveyard. Then copy each card exiled with Arcane Bombardment. You may cast any number of the copies without paying their mana costs.
Sage0fMadness: you want to discard something to bombard ya
Pywodwagon: put dismissal or you might not get a bounce
FPNY41: I bet Liev Shrieber would be a good Ajani
micalovits: This is so silly
Thefluffiestguineapig: That's a phrase: Befuddle the Rankle
GreatWahooney: wow Bombardment is such an absurd card
renaissance_rat: you can cast them both
Pywodwagon: you can cast both of those though
Bugberry: It is a 6 drop do nothing mythic, so it better be absurd
Seth_Erickson: this is where we get sovereign's bite'd
Ukon_Cairns: its okay, i trust we can deck out before opp kills us
micalovits: Pledgemage is about to be very dumb
Seth_Erickson: we don't want to draw any more cards right
micalovits: 5= rooftop and startle right?
Bugberry: if we deck it's a moral victory
ghizmou: it s a may
Seth_Erickson: and we can leave up strike
renaissance_rat: pledgemage is so silly in this deck
Seth_Erickson: I just don't think we need to do the other two yeah
renaissance_rat: lorgemage
tehfewl: beefy
Seth_Erickson: lands here probably
Sage0fMadness: that mage is gonna get so swole
Mierr: when you cast rooftop with bombardment, can you casualties it as well?
Seth_Erickson: we get to bounce again
Nydestroyer: having dismisal in the bombard is insane lol
micalovits: Sure, its nice and silly
1y1e: pledgemage is a wizard for aegar too Pog
Izandai: And make your army GROW
Izandai: Oh and your Pledgemage, I guess.
ReachW: @Mierr Yep, you're casting it so you can pay additional costs.
micalovits: And even keep up startle!
Seth_Erickson: the deck is absolutely lost in the sauce
Bugberry: opponent is probably frustrated seeing us at 3 life and refusing to die.
renaissance_rat: its comback time
Greyah: Arcane Bombardment is a sweet card.
hd_dabnado: strike is free which is nice
violetblight: dont you just kill with this
Seth_Erickson: I like targeting the electromancer
Thefluffiestguineapig: I'm resisting making many very dark jokes about US foreign policy here
AzaleaCloud: Hey Adam, hey James, how go the draftings
Izandai: And cast the Divination. Wanna find a land.
theymerLoviatar: meowdy pawdners

tehfewl: cronch
Seth_Erickson: @jobygoby ok
jobygoby: @seth_erickson I just went full circle
Izandai: Dinger
Seth_Erickson: cowards
renaissance_rat: bombardement is a fair and balanced card
Izandai: Guess you bounce it.
micalovits: Is it worth it?
Izandai: Yes.
renaissance_rat: start the lorgemage over i guess
ReachW: Yeah, it boosts the army and sets them back some, deffo worth
Seth_Erickson: make them draw a navigator's compass perhaps
micalovits: We should maybe hace cast divination to have a beetter chance of a spell?
Athelgar: Arcane Bombardment is so fun
Izandai: Kind of out of spells.
Seth_Erickson: yes
Izandai: Yes
micalovits: It sure does
Pywodwagon: yep
violetblight: yep
Izandai: Oh right you have that one.
AzaleaCloud: Yep, escape is an alt casting cost!
renaissance_rat: this deck is GROSS
renaissance_rat: i love it
Izandai: mattlrLul
micalovits: Rude
Seth_Erickson: boo
ztghostie: :(
renaissance_rat: can electromancer go face?
Bugberry: god struck down with a solar blaze
Ukon_Cairns: this mighta been funny if we had befuddle and startle up.
Seth_Erickson: Would it be better to kick Amplifier
micalovits: Don't say such things Adam
Seth_Erickson: oh wait that's not the one I thought it was
Seth_Erickson: I thought it was the chronicler
Sage0fMadness: not the buyback-a-spell one sadly
GreatWahooney: oh yeah I routinely confuse it with the DOM one that kicks to return a spell
kumatsu: This music feels like I'm watching Fantasia
Bugberry: if the opponent used something like a Sovereign's Bite it would be hilarious
FPNY41: since when did Danny Elfman write music for Arena?
Seth_Erickson: I cannot wait for the Sovereign's bite to show up
AzaleaCloud: Wait, are those "scuffed card" sleeves? They do that now on Arena? XD
Bearudite: this is music to conquer fantasy Russia to
Seth_Erickson: I think so
Izandai: Play the Amplifier and Sleep that.
hd_dabnado: sleep the guildmage yeah
ztghostie: you do have a blood to try and find a spell
Sage0fMadness: play a creature and sleep it
theymerLoviatar: @AzaleaCloud they were an April Fool and now they're purchasable
Sage0fMadness: since it's summoning sick anyway
AzaleaCloud: Nice.
Seth_Erickson: it's great because bombardment casts the copies Kreygasm
Seth_Erickson: befuddle and blind blast are good
ztghostie: this is so silly lmao
Greyah: Bully that Amplifier!
itsr67: LUL
Izandai: Amazing
Ukon_Cairns: 19 triggers
therepoman__: LMAO
Sage0fMadness: LUL
ztghostie: "here amplifier, hold this"
Seth_Erickson: this deck is killer
renaissance_rat: goddam
FPNY41: no kill like overkill
ReachW: Stormless Storm looking shnasty.
GhostofJeffGoldblum: mama mia
Bugberry: a fling would be great here
renaissance_rat: i call shenangins
bigpearlentertainment: this deck rips
Izandai: mattlrLul
AzaleaCloud: The duality of Izzet: Cast a zillion spells, bully that creature specifically
Sage0fMadness: you love to see it
renaissance_rat: lorge lizard
bigpearlentertainment: fouseyThatscrazy fouseyThatscrazy fouseyThatscrazy
lil_wiggle: that was fun
Sage0fMadness: Did you? LUL
AzaleaCloud: FBtouchdown
ztghostie: What about you opponent? LUL
GhostofJeffGoldblum: seabatClap seabatClap seabatClap
Neddy471: Sometimes you can have a lot of fun losing.
renaissance_rat: up until the end
AzaleaCloud: Opponent played boardwipes, they deserved it
Seth_Erickson: we were at 3 life for so long
Mierr: they almost got you. Almost
Sage0fMadness: it was 27-3 at one point
Thefluffiestguineapig: Having fun does not always mean winning, you can learn and have fun seeing someone else doing cool things
Seth_Erickson: and they definitely were in colors that could just kill us out of nowhere
Neddy471: Especially if it's close until the end, and there are a lot of interesting combos.
ReachW: I got that the other day after my oppo mulled to three and conceded before any game actions took place and I'm like "yeah, thanks, magic, had a riot"
GreatWahooney: if I were in the opponent's place, I'd have loved the show
Neddy471: Plus, you don't have team-mates to call you racial slurs. Always a plus.
MVlat_: Jank is fun
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Neddy471 Or gender demeaning things
Seth_Erickson: 2 colors from five color joker so far.
Grimnus: Land on the left works for Arena since the lands end up on the left
Greyah: I refuse to sort my hand, both digitally and in paper. I keep my land where I draw it.
Seth_Erickson: success
Thefluffiestguineapig: @MVlat_ Jank is always an adventure

Neddy471: @Thefluffiestguineapig That too... I grew up in the "There are no girls on the internet" internet, so gender slurs tended to be just toxic masculinity, not actual gendered slurs.
Greyah: What's 23 life when your opponent is staring down the barrel of an Arcane Bombardment
Thefluffiestguineapig: Also I will say with Izzet nonsense the show is very real in flavor too. Many sploisions
Seth_Erickson: Aegar dismissal?
AzaleaCloud: One more land! One more land!
Seth_Erickson: a token
GreatWahooney: looking forward to seeing how this goes on the vod. good night folks!
Bugberry: @Thefluffiestguineapig you are describing Prismari
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Neddy471 That's fair, I think a better way to phrase it would have been toxic targeted things, yeah. Just toxic internet in general makes things miserable
ReachW: Fierce Witchstalker, peak Magic design, love that card.
Seth_Erickson: alright one time no enchantment removal
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Bugberry I am very behind in things, is that from Strixhaven?
Sage0fMadness: just need to not die
Bugberry: @Thefluffiestguineapig yes, They are the UR school of the arts.
Neddy471: @Thefluffiestguineapig YUP.
Seth_Erickson: We're in the fair
hd_dabnado: oh no, clueless
micalovits: Only hits creatures right?
Sage0fMadness: it has to be a creature card
ztghostie: its only creatures I think
AzaleaCloud: NotLikeThis
therepoman__: NO
Pywodwagon: boooooooooooooo
hd_dabnado: NOOOO
ztghostie: booooooo
TwitchTVsFrank: BibleThump
ReachW: Corpse Appraiser only likes corpses
Bearudite: take these broken wings
Bugberry: !card corpse appraiser
LRRbot: Corpse Appraiser [UBR] | Creature — Vampire Rogue [3/3] | When Corpse Appraiser enters the battlefield, exile up to one target creature card from a graveyard. If a card is put into exile this way, look at the top three cards of your library, then put one of those cards into your hand and the rest into your graveyard.
Grimnus: The sadness
Thefluffiestguineapig: Oh man
Seth_Erickson: Ship it to the next game
James_the_Dabbler: WOW
tehfewl: they took the broken wings, and learned to fly again
Thefluffiestguineapig: Also !clip
Pywodwagon: they've won the mental battle
Sage0fMadness: everything has etbs
micalovits: Could swing and see how they block?
Ukon_Cairns: yeh, strike or befuddle make it pretty safe to block
urkleturtle: five color deck with maindeck enchantment removal. OP is on a different plane of existence
AzaleaCloud: Imagine playing fair Magic.
Nydestroyer: idk I am main decking enchant removal in this right now lol
Seth_Erickson: Precise strike saves right?
AzaleaCloud: Playing right into Precise Strike PogChamp
Nydestroyer: its chaos who knows
hd_dabnado: 6 power, kill the sevant and corpse
loufghyslaufey: What did happen?
micalovits: Strike seems better?
Jethrain: take out the appraiser and the clockwork first?
loufghyslaufey: Oh, the Bombard-Mentos got Broke-winged
Seth_Erickson: we could dismissal their food
Seth_Erickson: that doesn't seem bad
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Seth_Erickson In game, in real life having been on the receiving end it sucks
Ukon_Cairns: more main deck enchantment removal ichimaiaCry
Sage0fMadness: OP's name is accurate
GhostofJeffGoldblum: that Vraska is like my favorite card of all time, I love her
Thefluffiestguineapig: I feel like the LRR crew were not the only ones who drafted enchantment stuff and people have started modifying accordingly
Bearudite: to make you learn to fly again and learn to be so free
Seth_Erickson: They're hedging against another 5ColorHoaxer
Bugberry: And it's not just enchantment removal.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Seth_Erickson More like 5ColorHoser!
definenull: It's a valid strat in bo1 tho
micalovits: Broken wings hitting fliers is mostly why you run it
ReachW: I mean, Broken Wings hits three types of problematic permanents in a high-powered format like this, I can see maindecking one.
Sage0fMadness: i don't necessarily disagree except this is not a high-powered format
Thefluffiestguineapig: Or even just an unpredictable format
Sage0fMadness: ^ fair
renaissance_rat: bolt the bird? nah blast the dog
tehfewl: moloch has first strike
Thefluffiestguineapig: !card moloch
LRRbot: Did you mean: Sandstalker Moloch; Rooting Moloch; Thorned Moloch; Whiptail Moloch; Torpid Moloch
Thefluffiestguineapig: I actually don't know, which one did I mean?
Seth_Erickson: didn't hit our Taunter though which is going to slow this game down real quick
loufghyslaufey: !card thorned moloch
LRRbot: Thorned Moloch [2R] | Creature — Lizard [2/2] | Prowess / Thorned Moloch has first strike as long as it's attacking.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @loufghyslaufey Thank you!
renaissance_rat: no another pacifism
Thefluffiestguineapig: Is straight pacifism worth it in a format that seems to be pretty fast?
Seth_Erickson: the pacifisms are working for our opponent right now
AzaleaCloud: Yeah. 2 mana pseudo-removal is 2 mana pseudo-removal.
Thefluffiestguineapig: These games seem to be determined very quickly
Seth_Erickson: hard to say in this strange chaos environment
ReachW: If you're doing the fast things, sure. Pretty easy to double-spell it after a curve-out.
renaissance_rat: theyre ok qualty removal always
WalrusOntheCourt subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 29 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, WalrusOntheCourt! (Today's storm count: 13)
Seth_Erickson: you want both that's technically still alive
TheOtherTrevor: play one and sleep something?
Thefluffiestguineapig: Ok quality for sure removal in an uncertain format like this seems pretty good now you explain it
Seth_Erickson: You could play both and then we take 2
FPNY41: 1 is not 0
Seth_Erickson: still alive with pledgemage and tap right?
Seth_Erickson: oh wait no not quite
AzaleaCloud: Sleep wore off
Sorator13: every time I watch a studio A stream for the first time in a while, I am reminded that they majorly upgraded the studio A camera :D
Thefluffiestguineapig: Did they have anything left when deckbuilding they could use to try to create an answer to this?
ReachW: yo
Thefluffiestguineapig: Is that picture of Graham in the phases shirt from Moonbase Mark 3 with that poster positioning?
Juliamon: Could be? It's from a long while ago
FPNY41: Welcome to Card Talk on National Public Radio
Seth_Erickson: aegar and blindblast combo Kappa
Austere_Squire: hoy, all
Thefluffiestguineapig: @FPNY41 Today we are discussing the Jank build and agreeing to never discuss that Black Cube from recent memory
Austere_Squire: wait, but murder is wrong
Thefluffiestguineapig: (Those are deep cut actual Car Talk jokes)
Thefluffiestguineapig: I'm a National Public Radio style of degenerate
Seth_Erickson: Holding up ulvenwald block transform right
Seth_Erickson: bombardment's at the bottom of the deck anyhow
Seth_Erickson: this is when they play Providence right
Seth_Erickson: !card Providence
LRRbot: Providence [5WW] | Sorcery | You may reveal this card from your opening hand. If you do, at the beginning of the first upkeep, your life total becomes 26. / Your life total becomes 26.

AzaleaCloud: !card Benalish Faithbonder
LRRbot: Benalish Faithbonder [1W] | Creature — Human Cleric [1/3] | Vigilance / Enlist
AzaleaCloud: Dangit, I was hoping the bot would give me the reminder text for enlist.
Seth_Erickson: tap an untapped creature without summoning sickness
Juliamon: Bot doesn't do reminder text for brevity reasons
FPNY41: Phrasing?
LurkerSpine: Cheer100 speak your truth
Thefluffiestguineapig: @ChampBlankman Now we just need a Puzzler and we are all set
AzaleaCloud: @Juliamon That's fair, I was just being lazy instead of tabbing over to Gatherer.
Sethalidos: add that to the quote database
theymerLoviatar: I love balls.
Seth_Erickson: Ikoria is in the chaos draft do we first pick Zenith Flare when it pulls up
Thefluffiestguineapig: !card Zenith Flare
LRRbot: Zenith Flare [2RW] | Instant | Zenith Flare deals X damage to any target and you gain X life, where X is the number of cards with a cycling ability in your graveyard.
Thefluffiestguineapig: "It's not amazing but" is the tagline of most jank decks
FPNY41: taunter can still fight through pacifism
Seth_Erickson: plus we want tuanter to fight the bruiser anyhow
ReachW: 2020 green cards, am i right?
Seth_Erickson: !card Rooftop Nuisance
LRRbot: Rooftop Nuisance [2U] | Sorcery | Casualty 1 / Tap target creature. It doesn't untap during its controller's next untap step. / Draw a card.
Seth_Erickson: do you really want them digging through the dungeon really quickly?
AzaleaCloud: @ReachW I remember Oko. And Once Upon. And Beanstalk Giant. And Veil of Summer. And Escape to the Wilds. And a fashionably late Uro.
AzaleaCloud: Wait, most of those are 2019 green cards.
Nydestroyer: bufftle
Sage0fMadness: startle yeah
ReachW: @AzaleaCloud Still closer to being 2020 green cards than Brash Taunter, I suppose, so works for me LUL
Thefluffiestguineapig: Impecable timing: what I wish I would have with a job offer
Seth_Erickson: until start of their turn
Sage0fMadness: 2 damage to the bruiser
Seth_Erickson: dungeon effect
Nydestroyer: zombies are casualty fodder though
Seth_Erickson: they finished it and drew a card yeah
AzaleaCloud: Torch% speedrun
Seth_Erickson: can start fighting out electromancer for 4 damage
Thefluffiestguineapig: This is silly
ReachW: "What if Sleep cost one less and was also Divination?" - Gavin Verhey, probably.
Thefluffiestguineapig: "Hey you, yeah I'm up here you dumb idiot!"
Seth_Erickson: Listen the dungeon definitely got them somewhat back into the game.
Thefluffiestguineapig: That's what the Rooftop Nuisance is saying and it somehow distracts everyone
Seth_Erickson: Where's Arcane Omnath
Seth_Erickson: the mono green one
AzaleaCloud: Mono-green
AzaleaCloud: Keeps your mana through steps and phases ending
TwitchTVsFrank: Bombardment died on the way back to their home planet
Seth_Erickson: Turns unused mana into colorless and saves it forever and gets +1/+1 for each saved mana
AzaleaCloud: o_o
Seth_Erickson: Divine judgement for your blasphemy
Thefluffiestguineapig: How do the backdrops for the games get chosen? Randomly?
trebuchetboy: ye
Seth_Erickson: oh wait omnath only saves unspent green mana and it stays green interesting
Seth_Erickson: !card Omnath, Locus of
LRRbot: Found 6 cards you could be referring to - please enter more of the name
Seth_Erickson: !card Omnath, Locus of Mana
LRRbot: Omnath, Locus of Mana [2G] | Legendary Creature — Elemental [1/1] | You don't lose unspent green mana as steps and phases end. / Omnath, Locus of Mana gets +1/+1 for each unspent green mana you have.
ReachW: oh boy, Deem Worthy. <3
Nydestroyer: wait thats cheating, that card matches the background
Sage0fMadness: Angry Omnath is still my favorite
Thefluffiestguineapig: No Amonket cards on the Amonket background! Bolas might somehow return from his prison
Athelgar: it would be cool if we got some kind of Planechase and it swaped the playmat on a shift
Nydestroyer: Locus of mana was the first commander I played on MTGO way back in the day
Nydestroyer: Loved that card
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Athelgar Oooo yes that would be amazing
Seth_Erickson: curate into rooftop un-casualty'd seems pretty good
Thefluffiestguineapig: The mirrored hand on face to think pose is a mood
Thefluffiestguineapig: "We can just rooftop here" is what led to parkour
definenull: lrrFINE
AzaleaCloud: Everything is Fine o_o
Thefluffiestguineapig: For a second I thought I might know what this opponent's deck was doing and I'm lost again
ztghostie: rip
ReachW: ooh, Unity no likey
Seth_Erickson: :)
SirMorek: :)
Melfina__: hmmm
GhostofJeffGoldblum: a deck si powerful that only CTD can counter it
Seth_Erickson: I'm going to be honest I don't know what you wanted us to not say
definenull: Same
Seth_Erickson: oh yes I see
Thefluffiestguineapig: @GhostofJeffGoldblum At least it's a deck here and not the many games this is the tech against in W+P
Darleysam: oh the "small indie company" spiel, yes
Seth_Erickson: something along the lines of small indie company
Thefluffiestguineapig: That frost lynx art is amazing
definenull: uhh
definenull: Justin plz
ztghostie: i mean if they discard a card to kill a decayed zombie I feel like that's a W
Thefluffiestguineapig: Isn't Hypnosizzle related to getting a connection to the mind of Niv Mizzet?
CygnusInfinity: oh no I just saw your deck... is that a new sleeve? LuL
ReachW: @CygnusInfinity Yeah, it's an ascended April Fool's joke.
CygnusInfinity: @ReachW Beautiful
Iperithon: !card Blindblast
LRRbot: Blindblast [2R] | Instant | Blindblast deals 1 damage to target creature. That creature can't block this turn. / Draw a card.

definenull: So busted
Seth_Erickson: and we could double sleep as well
LurkerSpine: if only blindblast went face
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Seth_Erickson In real life I want this

AzaleaCloud: No outs to Brash Taunter :D
definenull: Mvp
Thefluffiestguineapig: Brash Taunter is a real powerhouse today
dwchief: MTGA bugged on me when I went to do a draft of this. Have to wait for CS ticket to fix it :(
ChampBlankman: This deck has been an absolute blast to watch.
Thefluffiestguineapig: This deck has done good work
definenull: No misses? Ever?
AzaleaCloud: "This sure is a pile of cards... that I'm going to ether you with in about five seconds."
ReachW: in the words of Numot, 0-3 deck, 7-0 player. All adds up to a 6-3 or 7-2.
ReachW: oh, that's a Magic card.
theymerLoviatar: Steel Seraph is an absolute house in my Celestine EDH deck
AzaleaCloud: Next turn you'll have enough for both spells.
Thefluffiestguineapig: My cats are so smart and it's very funny because they know when they get dinner and start bugging me between 10-15 minutes before and are getting very loud
GhostofJeffGoldblum: I feel ike if you stream on twitch yo just constantly take toxic
AzaleaCloud: This is so stupid LUL
AzaleaCloud: Here we go
Thefluffiestguineapig: @GhostofJeffGoldblum Or exist in almost any social media
Thefluffiestguineapig: This is goooooofy
definenull: "machine gun noises"
AzaleaCloud: Opponent shoulda splashed green for Broken Wings 4Head
Iperithon: @AzaleaCloud Steven is that you?!
Pywodwagon: seraph is two cards down now
definenull: This is why we main deck enchantment removal
ChampBlankman: This must be what "popping off" feels like.
Sage0fMadness: LUL
ReachW: Magic: the Gathering
Sage0fMadness: GG
AzaleaCloud: "No thank you, I would -not- like to draw more cards." ~Things Magic players never say until they're A) getting milled or 2) going off with Arcane Bombardment
Thefluffiestguineapig: Magic as good time confirmed
GhostofJeffGoldblum: seabatClap seabatClap seabatClap seabatClap seabatClap
Diabore: 7-2 retire champion?
trebuchetboy: hell yeah baby
GhostofJeffGoldblum: let's fuckin go boys
Diabore: thats fine, drafting is the best part of draft
Pywodwagon: that or the baldurs gate deck with two ascend from avernus', adam
Thefluffiestguineapig: First impression goof, second look "OH NO"
CygnusInfinity: still good even outside of colorless decks
ReachW: @Diabore Correct. Gameplay is all fine and good, but I'd be happy dropping after the draft portion to draft again every time.
jacketedrock: Thop thop
Diabore: @Pywodwagon burying the lead by not mentioning the SIX (!) priests
Austere_Squire: oh, funnily i just opened up my Kruphix eldrazi deck to work on and was comparing Battlethopter and the new Cicada card
1y1e: basically mulldrifter
Iperithon: legendary tribal, lets go D:
Diabore: @Austere_Squire por que no los dos?
Diabore: get (on)_ the point
Austere_Squire: @Diabore that was also a point i came to
AzaleaCloud: "I wanna be a yoyo dude," he cried. "Make me a yoyo dude~"
Athelgar: i have a yoyo
Iperithon: And I asked, but he just kept Yo-ing
TwitchTVsFrank: I own a yoyl
TwitchTVsFrank: Parnets!?!?!
TwitchTVsFrank: No!!!
TwitchTVsFrank: I'm ruined
Monocerotis2010: A yoyl is a yoyo that yolos and you can use it again
ReachW: you only yoyo lonce
Diabore: oh shit joe died
v_nome: It's ok, they'll bounce back
WanderingWinder: yoyoloo
Earthenone: !time
LRRbot: Current moonbase time: 4:20 PM
Diabore: nice
Feriority: Is this a cube draft?
Sage0fMadness: Jund em out
Diabore: @Feriority kind of? more like chaos
Feriority: @Diabore So not curated? But the packs are mixed across sets
Diabore: actually its really like mystery booster draft
chaostreader: This is like a chaos draft if you shuffled the packs together before the draft.
Greyah: Hemophage is spectacular if you're just drafting Ikoria.
jacketedrock: Dang animus
Neddy471: "Spiked Ripsaw"? Is that from a Warhammer 40k crossover I didn't hear about?
trebuchetboy: Need a dredmaw pls
Sage0fMadness: @Neddy471 you didn't hear about the 40k crossover?
ReachW: @Neddy471 I think it's from one of the recent Innistrads?
Diabore: @Feriority seems like it, with the same collation as a regular pack (1 r/m, 3 uncommon, etc.)
definenull: Heck yeah gruul smash
LurkerSpine: initiate wouldn't have been bad in gruul
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Feriority Juliamon looked at the start of the stream to see if there was info on if it was curated and how and just found many angry posts in the Arena subreddit
Neddy471: @ReachW Probably, it just looks exactly like a Chainsword.
definenull: Ooh bummer
Diabore: uhhhhhh grapple?
Neddy471: @Sage0fMadness If there was a 40k crossover I'd probably already be playing. I love 40k lore, and it'd be a kick enough for me to try putting together a 40k MTG deck.
draonwalker: is this phatom ?
Sage0fMadness: @Neddy471 I wasn't joking
Iperithon: crit is great
jacketedrock: I’d rather crit
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Neddy471 Didn't they do a commander 40k crossover?
Iperithon: turns tthat 5 power in to SUPRISE 10 power
ReachW: No, not phantom, surprisingly enough
nymistrya: It's not phantom surprisingly
Diabore: @Thefluffiestguineapig they certainly did
jacketedrock: Dual land
Thefluffiestguineapig: No draft but precon 40k decks
Neddy471: @Sage0fMadness Damnit, I'm in now.
Sage0fMadness: with a ton of new cards and all-40k art
Greyah: Take the canopy just to blow up someone else's Arcane Bombardment.
Neddy471: @Sage0fMadness I just found it - Commander, last year, right?
Feriority: @Thefluffiestguineapig That's a super weird format but I dig it
Sage0fMadness: @Neddy471 yeah and they slap
Diabore: @Neddy471 be warned, the precon decks are expensive af
korvys: Huh, apparently The One Ring eventually got sold to Post Malone
ReachW: I mean, I wouldn't put it past WotC to charge 10k gold for a phantom draft given the cube draft EV
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Diabore I remember because we couldn't keep it in stock to save our lives. The store I worked at was the main GW supplier in a decent area and also a big player in the MtG community
Sage0fMadness: @Diabore Nah they did a reprint run
Sage0fMadness: They're like 45-50 a pop
Thefluffiestguineapig: The prices were WotC plus GW licensing fees
Juliamon: If you're into 40K you're probably prepared for expensive
Sage0fMadness: LUL
cy0nknight subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 11 months!

Thefluffiestguineapig: Was that voice line attached to drafting Arlinn?
Diabore: @Sage0fMadness haha canada (im looking at 80-120 pre tax)
Juliamon: yup
Juliamon: PWs get voice lines
Neddy471: @Diabore Yeah, $60 per, Chaos is $46 for some reason.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Juliamon That seems like it's either great and wonderful or maximum cheese with no inbetween
Juliamon: Thefluffiestguineapig You are not wrong lmao
Sage0fMadness: @Neddy471 I think Chaos has the lowest EV in terms of bomb new cards / reprints but it's still sweet
Neddy471: @Diabore @Sage0fMadness My cousin loves Commander too, and has been trying to bully me into playing MTG with him for ages.
cy0nknight: @neddy471 If you're excited about the 40k crossover decks, there are going to be Dr. Who commander decks in October
cy0nknight: We also had a full set for Lord of the Rings
Neddy471: @cy0nknight I love Dr. Who, but his lore is wacky.
Iperithon: i've always loved me a good instant speed double strike spell
Thefluffiestguineapig: This deck at first impression is jank, and second look is JANK
RangerAlpha7: spiked ripsaw is pretty good at turning bad creatures into usable ones
Neddy471: @LoadingReadyRun Dr. Who fans.
korvys: "going to" :D
jacketedrock: Doctor who
Neddy471: As a fan of both, Dr. Who fans.
nymistrya: LotR fans are still fighting over a fictional creature having wings
Sage0fMadness: The Physician That Creates Breezes
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Neddy471 The fact they have been building the lore for a long time means that there was not continuity checks of any sort
MrQBear: So what's the magical dreamland? What's a single card that would make this deck way better?
Thefluffiestguineapig: Dr. Who over what?
Neddy471: @Thefluffiestguineapig LOTR.
Thefluffiestguineapig: I lost what we are comparing it to
Diabore: and opportunist

Diabore: black so good in that pack
Thefluffiestguineapig: Hilariously James they still are releasing LotR material from the wider legendarium that was unfinished
korvys: "Time for the ol' pack 3 pivot"

Neddy471: @Thefluffiestguineapig The fun thing about LOTR lore is it's more like literary interpretation, than lorecrafting.
Diabore: an innistrad because the morbid call back
Thefluffiestguineapig: The LotR lore is more for people like me who enjoy deep dive research and historical analysis
Diabore: @LoadingReadyRun midnight hunt
Sage0fMadness: @Neddy471 With a heaping helping of Linguistics haha
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Neddy471 Yeah, it is a critical interpretation exercise in many ways which makes it fun for some and utterly alienating to others
Neddy471: @Sage0fMadness Oh dear lord, I *love* the linguistic analysis.
Iperithon: Crashers are good with all your combat tricks
Diabore: cmon hallana and alena
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Sage0fMadness I have known literal linguistic anthropologists who describe Tolkein as "weirdly into language"
Neddy471: @Sage0fMadness I took a "Language of Middle Earth" class in college as my "gimme elective."
definenull: thrill?
Sage0fMadness: @Neddy471 Oh that is cool af
Diabore: cmon pick 7 or 8 gruul friends
Neddy471: @Thefluffiestguineapig LOTR is a universe for Tolkein to put his languages into. Not the other way around.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Neddy471 Was it really a gimme? Because that could have been a secretly dense course
Neddy471: @Sage0fMadness I wrote a twenty-stanza poem in doggerel Quenya regarding Nom the Wise, from the perspective of one of the three houses of Edain.
Diabore: liberator is solid
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Neddy471 I am very aware and when I tried to explain that to them they got all flustered. I found out they changed majors next semester because it wasn't what they thought it was
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Neddy471 That is rad
ReachW: maindeck enchantment removal acquired, no longer weak no Bombardment
WalrusOntheCourt: Aremn
WalrusOntheCourt: arem
dwchief: god wrenn's resolve is a weakness for me
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Thefluffiestguineapig They thought that being a grammar nut meant they were a language history person. They had been misinformed
definenull: any enchanments? kami might not be good here
Neddy471: @Thefluffiestguineapig HA! Especially with English. *obligatory three languages in a trenchcoat joke*
LurkerSpine: Hellion and Celebrants maybe?
adept_nekomancer: Wall of Vines?
Neddy471: @Sage0fMadness I'm trying not to spend $226 on magic cards as an impulse buy. I lowkey hate you right now.
Sage0fMadness: @Neddy471 lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Neddy471 That is a super good joke actually. Specifically it would be three languages personified as raccoons who are constantly disagreeing about what to do audibly as raccoons
WalrusOntheCourt: Pile? or deck?
Sethalidos: @Neddy471 English has far more than three languages crammed in that trenchcoat
ReachW: one of the draft decks ever built right here
definenull: who will win? big brain leader or 1 braincell
Neddy471: @Sethalidos Oh, three languages in a trenchcoat, who track down other dialects, mug them in an alley, and riffle through their pockets for loose grammar.
Thefluffiestguineapig: Hellion Celebrants are inspired by football hooligans
definenull: so it evens out

Neddy471: @Sethalidos It's basically a trade language of Anglish, German, and French; having stolen Celt, Welsh, Eirie(Irish? don't know the correct spelling), etc.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Neddy471 And then try to pass off that loose grammar with essentially confidence and gaslighting. "I've always had this, what are you talking about?"
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Neddy471 Irish is the way it is commonly written in the latin alphabet
definenull: sheesh
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Neddy471 And those are just the three biggest languages in the trench coat, the hands are actually minor contributors with their own weird quirks
definenull: there are not brakes
Neddy471: @Thefluffiestguineapig I know that Eireland (with accent) is technically the correct spelling, and I'm not going to try to spell anything in actual Welsh.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @definenull The brakes are at the bottom of this cliff you see here
Neddy471: @LoadingReadyRun Ouch, you have to experience defeat to be able to enjoy the victories.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Neddy471 Yeah, they are trying to reclaim it after the very thorough cultural genocide and it's slow going
dwchief: Except Ancient Paper
dwchief: (yes thats a rock paper scissors joke)
AzaleaCloud: "Nothing beats Ancient Rock." ~Beatles fans, probably
Thefluffiestguineapig: The Latin alphabet does none of these languages any favors
definenull: no startup frames
MVlat_: wouldn't ancient rock also be dust?
Neddy471: @Thefluffiestguineapig Thus my caution. I actually heard some people chatting in actual Irish while I was Dublin. It was amazing just to listen to. Like singing as a language.
v_nome: Also you can cancel into paper or scissors
Muddy_Thunder: no mountains are ancient rocks. the appalachians are older than trees
Thefluffiestguineapig: @MVlat_ Depends. How ancient? Sometimes it becomes other denser rock
Thefluffiestguineapig: There is a reason most archaeology of prehistoric civilizations has an enormous focus on lithics analysis and identification
WalrusOntheCourt: Is Cam your opponent?
Neddy471: @Thefluffiestguineapig I think we've reached critical nerd mass here. We may want to go back to making Dr. Who v. War 40k v. LotR jokes.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Neddy471 Yes, that is the way to dispel the critical nerd mass :D

korvys: !card Wildwood Sco

definenull: booo op hates fun
korvys: !card Wildwood Scourge
LRRbot: Wildwood Scourge [XG] | Creature — Hydra [0/0] | Wildwood Scourge enters the battlefield with X +1/+1 counters on it. / Whenever one or more +1/+1 counters are put on another non-Hydra creature you control, put a +1/+1 counter on Wildwood Scourge.
Thefluffiestguineapig: When working behind the counter at that TT store sometimes people would try to explain their 40k stuff to me without prompting and oh boy I like some really weird and windy lore but that stuff is just utterly inscrutible

Neddy471: @Thefluffiestguineapig Oh, it explicitly doesn't make any sense, but it's not "Timey-Whimey-Stuff" of Dr. Who.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Neddy471 That's the spelling I'm going to use every time someone tries to explain why me not liking something is me "just not getting it"
dwchief: cat is an artifiact
AzaleaCloud: Liberator kills Capture Sphere
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Neddy471 It is the hyper salinated water that forms lakes at the bottom of the ocean to Dr. Who's fluff
James_the_Dabbler: Those are BOTH good
LurkerSpine: gets the enchant off the capture sphere or kills the hippocamp
definenull: kills artifact / sphere
kumatsu: kills the capture sphere
Neddy471: @Thefluffiestguineapig I mean, it's a credit to them that they *want* you to like it, but you're not required to like something.
sandmaelstrom: untaps scourge theoretically
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Neddy471 These are not people who are explaining because they want me to like the thing, those people I respect. These are the people who are just trying to prove I'm Wrong
James_the_Dabbler: That's a lot of digging
adept_nekomancer: A battlethopter with a chainsaw glued to the front is a pretty terrifying thought.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @James_the_Dabbler Ideally in an upward direction
Feriority: I didn't notice your sleeves until just now, wow is that nostalgic
Neddy471: @Thefluffiestguineapig OOOOh! Those people. "If you don't like Quentin Tarantino you don't like Cinema" of the gaming world. Yeah. Those people can kick rocks.
Feriority: Playing unsleeved magic on asphalt in middle school

Thefluffiestguineapig: That's another stream, silly James!
dwchief: that good 'ole DOOM saying "RIP and SAW!"
adept_nekomancer: @Thefluffiestguineapig Those usually have more teeth. But I guess a saw has metal teeth.
Kramburger: G' and also day
kumatsu: Rip and tear until we're mythic?
adept_nekomancer: @adept_nekomancer Actually, I'm thinking of the Phyrexians.
definenull: yikies
Neddy471: Oh, that's a hard push.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @adept_nekomancer I think the difference between some of the flying Phyrexians and flying Eldrazi minions is just the Phyrexians teeth are all pointed outward and the minions have teeth that you can't understand
GreatGodOm: James, thanks again for the Commander precon you gave me at Barcelona. It was great and unexpected.
definenull: never mind never punished
kumatsu: just like we drew it up
AzaleaCloud: One more land! One more land!
Thefluffiestguineapig: @AzaleaCloud This is the time where James's curse is a secret gift
kumatsu: wow, Adam's so nice and selfless, what a great guy
AzaleaCloud: @Thefluffiestguineapig Feel like that's been most games this stream.

GreatGodOm: @KingOfDoma Thanks for the gift sub!
Thefluffiestguineapig: @AzaleaCloud Since a curse is constant sometimes it can have the opposite effects
KingOfDoma: Small Gods is my favorite standalone Pratchett book
GreatGodOm: I'm just getting all the prezzies!
Thefluffiestguineapig: Also this double Thinking Hard face while silent is a very good representation of some moods
GreatGodOm: @KingOfDoma Mine too.
kumatsu: we get so many counters off Dreadknight
KingOfDoma: The speech on the beach? Ugh. Gets me every time
definenull: Ah.
GreatGodOm: @KingOfDoma My favourite scene, is the one in which Om and Brutha first meet. I find it to quintessentially Pratchett.
Thefluffiestguineapig: This deck clearly takes more thought for them to pilot than the effortlessness of the Prismari Jank Supreme from last draft
GreatGodOm: to be*
AzaleaCloud: FBtouchdown
AzaleaCloud: <3 ty for strem
WalrusOntheCourt: Well done!

zimmercj: HypeHai chat
Thefluffiestguineapig: That emote was one of my 10 year old cats last night getting kitten level zoomies at about 1am careening around and skidding into things on the hardwood at top speed
Thefluffiestguineapig: Does anyone know if Ian is transmitting from the Moonbase proper or his mind palace (his and Cori's place) today?
tod_vom_himmel: im not a fan of ians mind palace personally
tod_vom_himmel: its a bit too ian for me
Juliamon: James said Moonbase
tod_vom_himmel: i can only take so much ian at a time
TemporallyAwry: If you can't be yourself in you're own mind-palace, what's the point of having one PrideShrug
Thefluffiestguineapig: When Heather makes a guest appearance is helps temper things
Thefluffiestguineapig: I would argue Ian is maximally himself at all times and has cultivated a space to do so. We sometimes are bemused by it and sometimes face palm but sometimes it's transcendent

Thefluffiestguineapig: Also seeing Ian being so unapologeticly himself and having supportive friends gives me hope
KeytarCat: @Thefluffiestguineapig Right!? I aspire to both be and have that kind of friendships
Thefluffiestguineapig: But enough with the real feelings talk, today a controller gets the treatment many of the headphones got
DrakoniteDev: @Thefluffiestguineapig now I'm scared
Thefluffiestguineapig: @KeytarCat Seriously one of my very real goals in life
Thefluffiestguineapig: @DrakoniteDev I mean, he had an electronic being tinkered with on the schedule. That wasn't frightening?
KeytarCat: @DrakoniteDev I was going to make a bottom surgery joke, I'm not sure which is better. worse?
Thefluffiestguineapig: Is Ian alone in his laboratory like Niv Mizzet with Paul as his Raul Zarek today or does he have a cohost on camera?
SquidVorb: I guess.... C-ing is believing
Thefluffiestguineapig: @KeytarCat I think a convincing argument could be made either completely better or utterly worse but there is no middle ground
Thefluffiestguineapig: What am I saying, this is TTSF, middle ground does not exist
KeytarCat: the best split the room answers!

SquidVorb: I can't believe the PS4 is a DECADE old
Thefluffiestguineapig: You were sorely missed at the bird stream yesterday Ian, how are the crows?
Viowof: wait, it worked natively at launch?
