Awesome stuff.

Also; if anyone lives near Portland OR and likes to play, I can be found playing in the pubs. It's just my thing.

I feel like just like Alex (has no direct relation with both our names being Alex): I've been beating the crap out of my friends at Magic recently, and now they kinda sorta hate me.

Doesn't really help them that one of them is playing oldschool cards, and the other one is using decks I made.

I need to get in on some FNM. Flame Slash FTW.

I think my favourite decks of mine is an R-G-B Allies deck, an Eldrazi Spawn deck (no Eldrazi, just the spawn) and a friggin' weird deck where all I do is steal your creatures. That last one leads to some wacky games.

Also, if anyone wants to know, my favorite deck types are Izzet from the Ravnica block, and that R/B theme deck from Morningtide. I didn't even need to add a single card to that second one and it's already one of my best decks.

I also have a rainbow sliver deck. It is the definition of dushebaggery. I love it like a child.

My R/U deck is like that, it has an Avatar that does it each upkeep and several instants and sorceries. Eldrazi tokens with Raid Bombardment are a huge source of pain for my friends, especially when I have multiple.

Ah, Magic, I had fun with that years ago.
Until I lost my deck. :-(

One of the best episodes! Keep it up guys! A weekly C Hustle spinoff would be AWESOME!

OrokuSaki:

Thanks for the help, but I play red.

If you're clever, you can still play those cards without running a single Island since they're "pitch cards" (you can remove a blue card from your hand rather than paying the mana cost).
You need other blue cards, but if you run hybrid red/blue cards, it can work.

What might work better: Try running Stingscourger. It's a Red Bounce Goblin out of Time Spiral.
Also, the card Gone from Dead // Gone (split card) also gives red bounce.

For artifacts, Pithing Needle naming Sneak Attack completely kills his combo, and those can be played for one colorless.

It's Magic

The LoadingReadyRun crew is overcome with a burning need to cast card-based spells.

you guys made my day i just got back into magic when scars came out after id quit after the original mirrodin block

Are you just using the Eldrazi spawn for quick mana then? What are you using for damage? Whatever that one creature is that pumps the spawn? Can't remember the name of the creature because I don't use Eldrazi due to someone using all the good stuff I pulled.

What colour is the creature control deck? I wouldn't mind seeing that decklist please :) It seems like an interesting combination.

"yes graham, there's magic everywhere in this bitch." best...alex line... ever.

:D Another commmodor hustle :D

Also super funny. Love Magic...the Gathering and want that angry kitty deck.

"I call this deck 'the Angry Kitties'."

I laughed for, like, five minutes straight.

Kudos.

Ah, Magic. That brings back memories. Many sad, painful memories. I started playing just before "The Dark" expansion came out and left soon after 4th edition. I sold all my old cards and never looked back. I used to play a White Deck, and I had some pretty asskicking cards. 4 Serra Angels, 4 Seraphs from the Ice Age expansion, 2 Veteran Bodyguards, all the Mithra's Lands and a card that was called "Armageddon", from Legends, I think. Destroyed all black cards in play. That was sweet. I took out an army of Kjeldoran Dead and Senjir Vampires with that card.

But I don't regret giving it up. It was too expensive and a timesuck to boot.

Well, like I said in my post, Raid Bombardment is what I use, and since it's a common, I'd assume he uses it too. Some of those Eldrazi token creators are decent guys in their own right.

I think there's a card that gives them all +2/+1, so that would definitely be in his deck.

And, like all decks with red and black, generous application of creature kill spells. Blaze would be good, because you'd have enough tokens to power it up to 10 or more damage mid-game.

Commodore Hustle is my absolute favourite LRR. Yay!

I like that there is an app for magic.

You have a Roy G. Biv deck?

Ooooh! New Commodore hustle. And... OMG!! GORILAZ SHIRT!!!! ..ahem

Broodwarden. He's in there for sure, and I really should put in a Raid Bombardment after Jer gave me the idea, but my endgame is either sac everything for a Fireball, or (my personal favourite), Hellion Eruption.

Sacrifice all your creatures, and replace them with that many 4/4 Elementals. So gooood.

Bah, Magic. So much wasted time and money of my youth.

...And my friends are still into it and try to get me to play.

Bah. Hate Magic.

Don't hate video though. Funny. Good work.

Seriously? Turn all your creatures into 4/4s?

Need I suggest Doubling Season and Overwhelm?

pluizig:
So Alex is an official crew member now?

Considering he is the driving force for most of the crapshots, I'd say yes.

laughingstock2909:
virtual mtg is bs, if anyone wants to play real people who aren't around their computers or their mothers all the time go to the nearest card shop on friday nights, Its called friday night magic for a reason

Because everybody has a local card shop that has enough people to have a FNM.

Wes1180:
So I was wondering is the game on steam any good?

No, it is not. Don't get it.

Alex_LRR:
Glad to hear a positive response to the video everyone!

Someone was asking about my decklist, which isn't actually goblins. I play RDW at Friday Night Magic at Yellowjacket now with some pretty decent success. Its a fun and straightforward build, and I never get tired of flattening $80 Jace, The Mind Sculptors with my 25 commons and $4 rares.

Do you basically just concede if they put down a kor firewalker post sideboard?

OT: Great video guys, made me laugh quite a bit. I'm curious though, I'll likely ask this in the askLRR thread but is Kathleens Angry Kitty deck actually real or are those just an assortment of awesome cards to play on turns 1-3 in succession.

And I'm currently playing in standard W/G allies, mono green infect turn three kill, red deck cries to kor firewalker, and in non standard slivers. Ooooooh my friends hate me for that deck.

Thank you for the cH. I have been needing a fix for a long time (albeit the Halloween episode provided temporary relief, but with this the swelling itch is gone).

In general we seem to be keeping to Type 2 decks, just for fairness. That way there's less "what card is THAT?!"
But I'll think about that for sure!

Asturiel:

I forsee Kor firewalker as being a potential problem, but I have solutions for him. Smoldering spires shoves him out of the way for blocking, spitfire flies right over him, and any burn I would fire at him just goes to my opponent's dome instead. Plus, if my opponent uses removal, I can copy it with reverberate.

True enough, I suppose your version of the deck isn't as crippled as others are. One time my opponent ploped down three in one game... If I would have lightning bolted him he would have lost no life :(

Oh, well, that makes sense, the cards in the block were normally meant to be played with each other and not others for fairness's sake. But I normally run with a few cards from Time Spiral or the sets close to it, since that's when I bought the vast majority of my cards.

Well, have fun trying to beat the Angry Kitty deck.

I just hope that the guy who judges your FNM doesn't see this, he might start giving you a hard time
"Are you sure it's standard practice to do random deck checks at FNM's, and if it's really random why has my deck been checked 3 times so far while no-one else's has been."

But yeah I have a deck of a similar cost (mono black control) and your right it is really fun to take down $15+ rares with a bunch of commons and uncommons none of which I think I spent over 3 dollars on (the most expensive card in my deck is actually an uncommon)

Your friends are sliver haters too?

I mean, all I did was give them +5/+5, deal 3 damage to itself to deal 2 damage to target creature/player, and get a +1/+1 token every time they take damage! Seriously, you think I had played Progenitus or something!

Any sane person is a sliver or elf hater if they aren't the person running it :P

Kathleen is super attractive in this episode.

Unless they're against a sliver deck while playing a sliver deck... while owning Sliver Overlord.

(Do you want to compare evil bastard sliver deck notes?)

played magic for 17 years and am not stopping now

also Blue/Black's are best

There is really an angry kitties deck. It's not totally type 2 legal, but it's fun. Basically, it's structured around having lots of cats, really fast - a standard hit 'em quick and hit 'em hard type deck. Lots of flying cats too, and a hearty dose of red instants to keep things moving quickly. It's not the greatest, but I don't intend to play it competitively. I have a green black infect deck I'm honing to a fine, infectious point for that.
