That’s right folks, its been a long time since my last post (Last Web Wednesday in fact), so you will now be graced with
ULTRA MEGA EDITION
Of my Web Wednesday. So this edition will have 3 segments to it, the first segment is actually what I was going to blog on yesterday. It was my maiden voyage to Chipotle. You can see the story below. The second segement will be a Vs. segment (gasp!). Yes I actually have a deck that I am going to showcase. And it will bring a disclaimer that you will clearly see. The last segment will be the actual Web Wednesday segment, and there will be FOUR videos for your enjoyment. So strap yourself in, because you’re going to be in for a long ride.
So The Deranged Bear loves Chipotle, and everytime I drive past a Chipotle, I want it. So on this fateful day [yesterday], me and my mother took time out of my Spring Break to drive 20 minutes to the nearest Chipotle in Bridgewater, NJ. The idea came when I was reading US News and World Report in the eye doctor office waiting for my name to be called. I’ll read anything when I’m at the doctor. There was an article about Chipotle in the magazine with an interview witht the CEO. At that moment, I had a craving for Chipotle that I had never had for any women, animal, or other piece of food in my life. It had to be mine. So after we went home, I immediately went to the Chipotle website to find the nearest location to our house. Bridgewater, NJ had the closest one and my mom graciously drove both of us to Chipotle. We spent about 20 of the 25 minute car ride actually trying to find the damn place going around in circles.
“This better be the best damn burrito I’ve ever had,” my mom exclaimed as we finally pulled up to the restaurant. We walked in and immediately went to the front of the line, but we didn’t realize that there was a barrier in front of us that actually was the line. Uhhh, so we turn around and get in the actual line. We looked at the simplistic menu and I immediately decided on a burrito (My decision was made hours in advance). My burrito consisted of Cilantro-Lime Rice, Barbacoa (shredded beef), Cheese, and Sour Cream. I’m not much of a beans or lettuce kind of guy. My mom got a chicken burrito with Rice, Beans, Lettuce, and Sour Cream. We also got some chips and salsa and drinks and sat down. The anxiety I felt was incredible. I bit into the first piece, and I was in heaven. That burrito was the GREATEST burrito I have ever had in my entire life. I could taste each individual ingrediant, and they were all savory. It was like poetry in my mouth. The chips and salsa were also very good, but did not compare to the burrito. And of course my mom gave the standard, “It was ok” when I asked how her burrito was. She needs more spice in her life. She needs more Chipotle.
We drove back home and I wanted more. I can’t wait to go back to college as there is a Chipotle about 5 minutes away from the campus. Oh baby.
So thank you US News and World Report for giving me the craving, and thank you TDB for planting the seed in my mind that I wanted Chipotle. And here is a video for your enjoyment (No this is not Web Wednesday)
A Vs. System Production.
So I haven’t talked Vs. in a LONG time. With multiple problems with Windows and Magic Workstation and college getting in the way, I couldn’t build any decks. But now everything is working again, and I am back with another deck that I have made. Enjoy.
So two of my favorite things to do in card games are killing off characters and drawing cards. By killing off I mean either KOing them or bouncing them back to the hand. So what it the one team that does both of these things……
Yes, a fan favorite for its jankiness, I have built a Wild Pack deck. Now given the lack of characters the team has, I had to team them up with someone, and I had to think about it for a while, but I finally decided on the Fantastic Four. They have some of the best team-stamped combat pumps (Family of Four, It’s Clobberin’ Time!) and that would go great with my average Wild Pack characters. So here is my deck with an anyalsis of each card.
The following deck has not been playtested, the deck has been reworked only through multiple amounts of goldfishing. Anyone who would like to help playtest it, please find me on Magic Workstation; name, d1sh0ng.
Anyway, here it is…..
4 Powell, Southern Charm
4 Invisible Woman, Walking on Air
4 Crippler, Carl Striklan
3 Dominic Fortune, Soldier of Fortune
2 Luke Cage, Steel-Hard Skin
4 Silver Sable, World’s Deadliest Mercenary
1 Mr. Fantastic, Critical Thinker
2 Thing, Heavy Hitter
1 Sandman, Intruders
1 Human Torch, Flame On!
1 Mr. Fantastic, Dimensional Explorer
1 Hulk, The Fantastic Hulk
4 Enemy of my Enemy
4 Signal Flare
4 Savage Beatdown
4 It’s Clobberin’ Time!
4 Bounty Hunt
4 Stealthcraft, Team-up
24 Plot Twists
3 New Baxter Building
4 Capture Net
Now let’s delve into the deck a little bit…
The first three turns are there to set up the quasi-dual loyalty that Silver Sable has. You are going to underdrop at some point during these first three turns, that’s fine. Once Sable comes out, you bounce their 4 using any means neccesary. After that, it is a standard curve deck, but always try to have Sable bounce the highest drop by protecting her on off-initiave and swinging back. You want evens with this deck, so you can use Sable right away. Thing on 5 is the obvious play anytime. And Torch on 6 is nice, however if you are on odds and have some Capture Nets, down, Mr. Fantastic isn’t terrible. 7 has to be Hulk, if you are able to use Bounty Hunt you should be able to discard 1 or 2 cards for him.
And now here’s a card-by-card anyalsis…
Powell- More of a plot twist, he can get your Team-Up or Bounty Hunt. Be sure to use him to exhaust defenders so you can set the resource for the next turn. Or you can use him in the Resource Step if you have a low cost character to exhaust.
Invisible Woman- A low cost FF character with a big butt. You drop her on turn 1, your opponent will probably say “pass”.
Crippler- Lost cost Wild Pack character, power only is good when you team attack with him. But most likely the character is going to get bounce anyway.
Dominic Fortune- It’s nice to see what you are going to draw, plus an ATK or DEF bonus, I like.
Luke Cage- I love drawing cards, and if you keep him out for awhile, you will be drawing cards galore, I’m thinking about making him my primary 2.
Silver Sable- Bounces characters, triggers Bounty Hunt to draw cards, what more could you want? Plan to always drop her turn 4. Sometimes even turn 5 if you are on odds.
Mr. Fantastic- Alternate 4 in case Sable can’t be recruited. More card draw, and a big butt.
Thing- Big Body, hard to get around. That’s about it.
Sandman- Alternate 5, but his power can be gut-wrenching with reinforcment. Possible 13/1? Sorry 6 drop but your are getting Capture Net’d.
Human Torch- A game ender if opponent is low on endurance, but usually vanilla.
Mr. Fantastic- Capture Nets + New Baxter Building + Mr. Fantastic = Cards!!
Hulk- With all the cards you hope to be drawing, he can get big.
Enemy and Signal Flare- Think about it.
Savage Beatdown- So Sable can get up that curve.
It’s Clobberin’ Time!- So Sable can get up that curve, and not stun back.
Stealthcraft- Standard Team-Up, But flight too? Nice.
Bounty Hunt- There will lots of ways to get counters on this, and with multiples, card draw will be plenty.
New Baxter Buliding- Nice with Capture Net. 3 just because I don’t always want to see it. And you can draw two cards with a FF discard!
Capture Net- Board Advantage plus Card Draw, my new favorite card!
So that’s a taste of my deck. If you would like to help me playtest it, please let me know or get on the MWS server and I’ll play.
