3? What other factors go in to making 3 the right number of cruises? Seems like, forgive the pun, such an odd number of 8 drops to have in a deck.

We went over these decks already in the show, so I hope you tuned in!

Here are our decklists:

Now, lets look at an opening hand:

Boy oh boy! Impact Tremors and all those tokens? I love it!

Now let’s look at the next six cards:

Well, you are not casting that Read the Bones any time soon. But wow, those tokens will keep you in it for a long time.

Now, lets look at an opening hand:

Well, I really hope that anticipate does the trick, because this hand is very light on threats. But heavy on draw.

Now let’s look at the next six cards:

Black Cat off the top is real nice and probably really lucky.

I added the Sage based on Sam’s moving speech. It seems real good.

Now, lets look at an opening hand:

Unblockable and surf monkeys, that’s all I need to see to keep this hand!

Now let’s look at the next six cards:

Yikes! Will my tiny bit of card draw get me out of this flood? I think having firebreathing will mitigate some of the bad flooding.

So, what revisions are you going to make?
