It's been longer than intended, thanks to technical and biological issues, but episode 2 is now online! On this episode we take Whizzard Big Dig up against HB Rush, then discuss the matchup, the future, and the decks' strength against the field at large. Naturally, we continue our addiction to Vamp and Magnum Opus.

Direct episode link.

RSS feed link.

And here are the decklists. There was no specific metaing for the podcast matchup, and we spent almost a month playtesting against the field at large.

And here is my version of Haas-Bioroid Rush. Not to be confused with dedicated HB Fast Advance, this deck tries to score 4-5 of it's points very early from the board before resorting to any fast advance scoring. If I could have attended our local regionals then this is what I would have brought.

This has quickly become one of my favorite A:N podcasts. I really like the deep turn-by-turn discussion and analysis of choices made. I look forward to the next one.

Please continue with these. I am enjoying all the different A:NR podcasts, but this one is most certainly unique. As another commenter pointed out despite the fact that this style should be difficult to understand in an audio only format you guys do a great job of explaining and contextualizing your decision making and thought process as you are playing. Looking forward to hearing more.

One small request though. Kit(?)'s accent/voice is sometimes difficult to understand. Please try to talk a little more clearly or slowly so none of your interesting thoughts and comments are lost.

Thanks for your efforts and keep up the great work on the podcast.
