SkylerRingtail: If anyone is looking for theme decks to try, I'm loving Twilight Rogue
Earthenone: that reminds me of a dumb yugioh tornament rule, you cannot use dice to represent counters on cards, you need individual small items for each counter on a card
mitomanox: hello, nice people! just got here. double ben today?
wandering_goliath: what about individual small dice?
Earthenone: yeah, as long as 1 dice equals one counter i guess you could lol
wandering_goliath: just have to fight the power you know
Haroldholmes25: wheelerJoke

Haroldholmes25: lrrWOW

MegaDosX: What the hell did I come back to
RandomTrivia: I didn't see the clown horn coming LUL
circusofkirkus: just a couple of jokesters
NavelWarfare: Okay, but ADP is bull and we all know that, right?
ballesta25: Adenosine diphosphate?
YeetTheRich_: well yes ben that IS my card
Haroldholmes25: ADP stands for "a dick pic" right?
Blightfight: Bummer that Wheeler will never be able to Play Hex: Shards of Fate.
Earthenone: adp frustrates me to no end, as it negates the only slight advantage you get for not playing the super basic pokemons
RandomTrivia: Punch Bear! Punch Bear!
Earthenone: so ben chooses to lose?
RandomTrivia: Oh yeah, Mad Party shenanigans are fun
Rustpile: real question is, why are we not using that beautiful ninetails coin?
BrowneePoints: I believe you mean best Momma in Alola
Rustpile: Are lists gonna be posted anywhere?
MegaDosX: I like how the game just shook that card at you, like "play this card, silly"
BrowneePoints: The best part of Mad Party's predecessor, Night March, is that the deck was super cheap to build @LoadingReadyRun
BrowneePoints: Zacian is also canonically a gal! and Zamazenta is her little brother
MegaDosX: Welp.
djalternative: Zacian and Yamper. The two dogs of Sword and Shield
Rustpile: @BrowneePoints I didn't know that, that's neat!
hidingbox: Night March?
TheAinMAP: lrrHORN

SirMorek: Clowns have been released

NavelWarfare: Dang clowns
MegaDosX: One of my favourite Wheeler jokes is still bailing on another joke halfway through
NavelWarfare: Well we got there
RandomTrivia: This card is a former winner of the Questing Beast Novel on a Card award
BrowneePoints: Hey! We don't talk about Pokemon Titulars! That's r34!
MegaDosX: Good lord, that's a wall of text
Earthenone: its also weak to a type that no longer exists, so it has no weakness :P
bentbranch: I made it! I'm probably late but I made it!
NavelWarfare: Does this mean Spiritomb shenanigans don't give the extra prize?
NavelWarfare: Not the best way to use them, but hey
SkylerRingtail: LRRning
Earthenone: GX are once a game attacks
Earthenone: shared across your deck
Haroldholmes25: Learning? Wait a minute this isn't strixhaven
MegaDosX: So kinda like Mega Evolution in X and Y?
TheMyrMan: yea, not just one time for that attack, only one of any GX attack
TheMyrMan: There is a fun supporter that lets you reuse your GX though, I have fun with that in my control deck :P

BloodnBullets: based off the Z-moves from sun and moon.
MegaDosX: So is Mad Party kinda like the cycling deck in MTG?
Brianlive: I've got enough pokecoins for a new deck, I have Relentless Flames already, would you recommend the Leon Charizard or the Ampharos deck?
Ukon_Cairns: thats so many different chubby mice miasWow
BrowneePoints: Mad Party is basically dredge
MegaDosX: So currently dealing 80
beokirby: *220
MegaDosX: Or...more, if I read that right
HundreydAundre: My favorite GX move was on a Leafeon that ramped my EX-Pokemon to Mega Evolve from the bench.
hidingbox: Isn’t t the same as night March or is it slightly different?
JarofGoats: Oh! I remember hearing about a similar attack. Joltik and... Night March I want to say it was called?
TheMyrMan: @Brianlive Leon Charizard is a good jumping off point to other formats if you're interested in that, since it does see some play in Standard and Expanded, but Ampharos is more fun in just theme deck format
MegaDosX: Yeah I just realised that's multiples of each of them
circusofkirkus: just timetwister 4Head
lightfoot14: feels like a zenith flare kinda thing
TheMyrMan: Energy switch to the active and take a knockout?
Brianlive: Ampharos looked like fun on the last lrr stream with it, Amphy is one of my favorite Pokemon
Ukon_Cairns: i cant wait to see one of these chubby mice one punch thru god, time, and space.
Haroldholmes25: wait is that a fidget spinner
TwitchingPokki: Looks like it
Tiber727: @Haroldholmes25 It's an energy spinner. Completely different.
TheMyrMan: ADP is a bad matchup for Mad Party. It really takes away the main advantage for the single prize decks
TheMyrMan: Mad Party relies on having a bunch of dorky mad parties die, buying time, and powernig up
SoldieroFortune: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:28:55.
MegaDosX: !updog
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 10:23:56. lrrSPOT
TheMyrMan: ADP doesn't give you the time to sac enough Mad Party actives to set up
TheMyrMan: Mad Party is one of those polarising decks, either your deck can't really deal with it, or your deck kinda shuts it down
OnyxOblivion: im upset that Zacian outclasses Zamazenta even in card format LUL
CyndaneTierney: Does anyone know why the fairy type was removed?
BrowneePoints: They removed Dragon too
BrowneePoints: to re simplify
asthanius: Split the types too much
CyndaneTierney: Ah.
NavelWarfare: @onyxoblivion Zamazenta looks more impressive. Competitiveness is moot :D
asthanius: Same reason there's never been a bug type in the TCG, for example
TheMyrMan: Double Dragon energy doesn't get any new toys now
OnyxOblivion: is that a spoiler for the next magic expansion
asthanius: It was interesting when they tried out double-typed pokemon cards
Earthenone: it is not
djalternative: I'm crossing my fingers we'll finally get purple mana in the next magic set
SnowbirdMike: Seniors discount on energy required.
BrowneePoints: I never remember sideboards
Earthenone: yugioh does have sideboarding to this day :P
BrowneePoints: I don't remember*
RandomTrivia: You get so much card draw and so many tutors that you can have single tech-pieces if you want them and find them reliably
asthanius: Yu-Gi-Oh has like 8 different decks
OnyxOblivion: back in my day we didnt have these "dark" and "steel" energies, and we were happy!
HundreydAundre: Which be why adding an evergreen color to magic's five colours is likely impractical. Just look at Snow & those colorless diamonds, etc.
RandomTrivia: It's fine, Wheeler will learn when he plays Duel Links LLUL
Earthenone: its all piled in to one "extra" deck
RandomTrivia: LUL
asthanius: "Um AKSHUALLY It's called a Tuner Monster"
djalternative: There's a main deck and an extra deck
Haroldholmes25: the washboard, the surfboard, and of course the board board
Blightfight: Doesn't YuGiOh have like, a chess board now? And you have to place your cards like Triple Triad?
YeetTheRich_: actually yugioh has also updated the zones on the board multiple times
djalternative: extra deck is basically a wish board
Teslamat: @Blightfight that's the syncro area
Earthenone: thats only for one mechanic now bliughtfight
asthanius: Dragon Drop
RandomTrivia: Dragon Drop also sounds like a Legacy deck
HundreydAundre: @Blightfight Excuse me ,sir! But I belief the term you may prefer would be "Pro-Bending".
tangokilo421: Dragon Drop sounds like candy pretending to be drugs
asthanius: It's not even a very cool sword. It's just a dog toy
niccus: this dog is going to get so much tetanus
Mattmitchell45: Sometime I just watch Youtube videos of Dogs Seeing Their Swords Return Home from War
BrowneePoints: Zacian loves HER swords
OnyxOblivion: da dawg wit da sword
djalternative: YGO is interesting because they don't have a standard which means no mechanics were ever phased out which lead to a mechanic collapse where the game literally crashed and had to be reformatted to acomodate them all
HundreydAundre: @djalternative Is that why they resorted to a digital client where they've preemptively re-vamped the rules?
asthanius: "I didn't bring my tokens, mind if I use this bellybutton lint?"
RandomTrivia: @asthanius YIKES

tangokilo421: Welcome to the Pokemon, Chatt
Xafty: ah yes, the (imo) best value TCG
asthanius: that tea cup got fricked up
djalternative: @HundreydAundre no. that happened after. In paper, there's an entire new battlefield with new rules that came with the set that introduced link monsters. From my understanding having played duel links for a while, they just started from the first series as a way to onboard new players
Orlantia: oh no my pokermans
MegaDosX: Wheeler just spilled the tea
BrowneePoints: what a cocky move wheeler
Rustpile: that animation was so extra I love it
Xafty: @djalternative thankfully they changed the master rule back to a better version, that still fits the link and pedulum zones
Orlantia: chatthew j Wiggins reporting
asthanius: Ya ever tuck a card just to watch it get shuffled?
BrowneePoints: Now Ulmer has the Oranguru. Guess the Ape Attack is on the other ear NOW eh Wheeler?
TwitchingPokki: I knew it!
RandomTrivia: Get 'em, girl!
Orlantia: jeebus
djalternative: @Xafty I'll have to look back into that then. I stopped really paying attention shortly after the vrains series started
Ukon_Cairns: that sword was so intrepid miasWow
Earthenone: yeah, in ygo right now, unless you are specificly using the vrains cards it pretty much is just 6 zones for creatures instead of 5 for each play compared to original field layout
Teslamat: LUL
tangokilo421: Gettin Switchy With It?
asthanius: Webster's defines Ordinary as-
Xafty: @djalternative yeah, the pedulum zones have moved to the side slots for spell/trap cards. and the link zone is not required anymore for extra deck stuff, minus full use of link monsters
NavelWarfare: driew yats
HatsWearCats: I catch the stream to find out youve joined the ADP dark side huh
LordSaphni: the link zones are finally gone? i may be interested slightly once again Xafty i freaking hated Link Monster stuff -_-
Xafty: @LordSaphni not gone, they still exist and you can summon from the extra deck into them. it just doesnt matter for anything but link monsters, because they actual care about relative location
SrMuskrat: @LordSaphni The link zones are still there you just can summon synchros, fusions and xyzs to any zone now
HatsWearCats: Mmmm spitshot
frozenphoenix7: You rang Ben?
HatsWearCats: With the new Telescopic sight too
HatsWearCats: Cyber Idiot Bird
eightbitrocket: that duck spits hot fire
