Great podcast as usual. However, just for those of us listening on headphones, whomever is typing, can you please set up all the things you want to look at BEFORE the recording starts. That typing noise is VERY loud and extremely grating on the ears. And if you're like me and have OCD, that clicking noise just starts getting under my skin. So please please please, stop tying during your recordings.

I've been saying it for lke a year.. Aisling Leprechaun as St. Patricks Day free promo. Similar to the Headless Horseman for Halloween in 2009. Of course, if they were going to do something like that again, they just missed Chinese New Year to give out the Zodiac creatures. Oh well.

AJ, How did you win your game with Kobolds?

I've done Kobolds several times: When Changelings first arrived I did a deck with Taskmaster, Crookshank, Kher keep and 3 ringers. When we got the rest of them, well, you can read about it here:


Complete with screenshot evidence.

Winning with Kobolds is quite by Lord Erman at Thu, 02/24/2011 - 09:46

Winning with Kobolds is quite easy actually. Just pair them with Cloudstone Curio and Glimpse of Nature (preferably both), and then fill the rest of the deck with those zero cost mana artifacts (Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal etc...), and then create a huge Storm count by playing your zero cost creatures and artifacts over and over. The finisher is either Tendrils of Agony or Brain Freeze.

Alternatively, if you want a more casual approach, you can pair them with Beastmaster Ascension too.
