Great work as always although I was bummed out it was only three hours 😉 I wanted to mention that Lifecraft Awakening doesn’t wake up your vehicles
Does ravenous intruder work out well as a blocker? I mean the threat of activation is more relevant at stopping people from swinging into it. They have to ask them self, “Does my opponent hold his artifact at a higher value than he thinks I hold this creature at?” and that is an interesting dynamic.
What you missed with Crackdown Construct is that it’s pretty great with cheap crew vehicles.
I think the other thing that may make Crackdown Construct playable is if the Implements are playable in a Improvise deck. They have that threat of activation plus the green one can put an extra +1/+1 counter on the Construct although that one only at sorcery speed. A couple of rares that would work really well with it are Aethersphere Harvester which can easily activate twice to pump the construct. Once with the Crew 1 and the other for the lifelink. Crew costs can also be payed multiple times so in a pinch you can protect your creature or get a little extra damage through. The other is Walking Ballista which lets you activate twice for 4 mana or even more times if you don’t mind removing extra counters from the Ballista.
Still problems on LSV’s sound levels. Often gets very muffled.
You guys gave Airdrop Aeronauts (4/3 flying for 5) a pretty high grade. But isn’t Long-Finned Skywhale (4/3 flying for 4) just as good? And that card was very mediocre.
