Listener Made Limited Resources Dice Bags

Listener Eric Horowitz enjoys making things that “personalize the gaming experience”, as he put it. We at LR think that is very cool, and he was kind enough to make Brian and I custom LR dice bags. Pretty sweet!

We’ve only got two of them, but maybe we can figure out a way to do a giveaway with one of them on the show sometime?

If you are interested in a custom dice bag, Eric takes requests. You can find his work on sale in his Etsy store here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/drdoodlesdesigns

Conspiracy Video Draft Recap

I had a lucky chance to draft Conspiracy before it was officially released. I drafted it with a bunch of awesome Magic personalities, you can see the video here:

Here is the deck I drafted:

Conspiracy Deck

I had never seen the cards before, so I was forced to evaluate on the fly. After they explained to us how the actual conspiracy cards worked, I was astonished. Besides the draft pick itself, they were completely free to run. I decided to prioritize them under the theory that if I snatched up a bunch of them while other people figured it out, I could get way ahead of the rest of the drafters.

I ended up with six total conspiracies. Muzzio’s Preparations, Immediate Action, and Brago’s Favor all seemed best with multiples of one card. Once I got my second Screaming Seahawk, I tried to take as many of them as I could to maximize these conspiracies.

I also picked up two Sentinel Dispatches, along with a single Vent Sentinel. Vent Sentinel is one of my favorite cards ever, and I was super excited to see it in my booster. I was less excited when I didn’t open or see a single other one in the whole draft. Still, I figured the Dispatches would help hold the ground while my Seahawks (GO HAWKS) flew over for damage. I also wanted them to protect my planeswalker…

Yup, I got shipped Dack Fayden, and while this was kind of hilarious given my history with “The greatest thief in the multiverse”, I also just thought it was a fantastic planeswalker. Looting has long been a favorite mechanic of mine, and double-looting is twice as nice.

My last conspiracy card was Advantageous Proclamation, which lets you run a 35 card deck. Originally I thought this was one of the better conspiracy cards, but have since realized that in multiplayer (a format I have relatively little experience in) decking yourself is a real possibility. This can make having a smaller library a liability. Especially when you have two Reckless Scholar, Dack Fayden, and a Compulsive Research 🙁

With a little help from Kathleen from Loading Ready Run, and two instances of Dack Fayden (one being my own), I was getting decked. Kenji finished me off before that happened, but either way I was losing.

I did learn some lessons from my Conspiracy experience. First, it was fun. I was skeptical a bit that it would be my kind of fun, but it was. Second, I was not prepared to build for multiplayer. I think in a heads-up duel my deck was friggin’ awesome. But in a four-player match, it wasn’t optimal. Looting effects lose a lot of their luster when the game is almost guaranteed to go long anyway.

The next time I draft this set, I will be focusing on a longer game. I’ll also keep prioritizing the conspiracy cards, as I think I had that strategy correct from the get go. I really enjoyed my deck, and it was definitely my kind of strategy.

Overall I had a great time and look forward to drafting Conspiracy again. How have your experiences with this unique set been?
