Magic for Normies Ep 2 – Did you really come back to watch this again?! | Magic the Gathering


doo-doo-doo-doo Magic for normies magic for normies hey everyone I’m pixie
kitten and I’m zoobi and we’re back for episode 2 of magic for normies what’s
a normie? I had this question a lot
after the first episode because apparently this word isn’t like common
knowledge. A normie is a casual player so that’s what we mean when we say magic
for normies it’s like magic for casuals right extreme casual extreme casuals
like the casuals who are like bad like real bad real real real bad oh and right
off the bat Efrain shouts us out with welcome back normies with a yeah thanks
to him we came up with this show yep it’s he’s pretty much the only reason we
do it let’s be real these are only listener and watcher okay we appreciate
it no we love you Aaron we do um so what
are we what have we got going on tonight zoobi what’s been going on with you
lately Oh God it’s so it’s been what a week and
a hat or no two weeks yeah two weeks since we’ve done this and up along I I
know I have finally finally finally played some paper EDH after like not
playing paper ETH for months now okay and I got to do some really dumb stuff
you play that like your LG yes yeah yeah played in my LG s with my friends and I
think I think I’ve told you before my friends all build degenerate decks so I
have to build a degenerate deck just to counter them that’s not but I it is it
is not nice I will say one of the best games I had though was when the whole
table all of us lost against a persistent petitioners deck yeah yeah it
was so much fun so they had ley-line of the void which you know you don’t get
your graveyard everything goes into exile and they just kept on milling the
entire table and it was so much fun I wasn’t even mad dying that way so
everybody lost to this player by being milled yes it was amazing it was a
hilarious yeah and I will I will say it took a long time for this person to do
it yeah because for a long time we didn’t really pay attention to them
because there was too many other threats on the board there was a mecca sardick
which is very very dangerous and then there was also a how do you say it the
Campbell combo whatever whenever you play an on creature spell you lose to
life okay yes and then I was playing um the hell was I think I was playing on
Nass yeah and I in in that same game I got to kill someone in one turn for 40
damage with war storm surge yeah and what about you what about some EDH you
playing the EDH lately um actually yes I played a th with some of the guys from
cards fear Ted and Efrain who are in chat hi friends um hi everybody that has
joined this hey at flowery that’s that’s Andy from The Guardian podcast am I
saying that right The Guardian The Guardian project podcast okay The
Guardian project yes yes yes so yes I played a th I played papery th
with mr. kitten and Ted and Efrain and we played through discord where we all
had cameras set up like over our desks and we that’s cool played paper a th
yeah all across well across the world because you know Ted’s in Canada that’s
like a whole nother country a it technically is yeah my wife’s actually
thinking about going to Canada later this year oh really um it seems kind of
like a scary place just like crazy people there I mean you know Ted right
oh god is he though I mean well no I’ve had him on the
podcast on magic musubi before and he seemed really cool
yeah no I’m kidding he’s he’s a really nice guy very nice and we had him on the
didn’t we have them on the um the magic jeopardy episode of chemistry yes yes
they you know what you know what they say in Canada they call macaroni and
cheese kraft dinner that’s what they call it so holy shit so that’s actually
a thing that yes so it’s so it’s not just from South Park because that’s all
I’ve ever heard it from with South Park it’s not a joke
that’s what they call telling us that right oh my god hey everybody get some
craft Benna oh my god yeah yeah hold it Efrain said yeah he has three
nipples that’s right Ted we’re just blasting Ted’s info out right
now yeah we are so yeah Ted from card sphere everybody
go check out card spheres yeah and yeah and what is it oh and the stream
elements came up just perfectly and what is this show sponsored by pick pick see
cards here of course you can see like the colors of the show or card series
colors and we’ve got the spinning logo here and you’re wearing the Hat I’m not
writing my charger gear right now but we do love cards here um so anyways I
played some EDH I was the first player to get killed in that game so that
sounds worried yeah that was mean that was really mean
but it was still really a lot of fun and we’re actually doing it again tomorrow
night so I’m looking for yeah yeah oh dang I wish I could join that’s my night
over I do D&D right being I’m at the my LGS yeah we’ll have to try and work
something out another night with you for sure though yeah I’d love to play with
you all yeah it’s frizzy pretty easy to get set
up with your webcam if you’ve already got a webcam yes and I got a tripod just
to be able to play paper magic now so one other thing I want to mention
about EDH and I know you’re gonna hate me for this pixie is um so last Sunday I
played my Tulane deck remember what true lane does um Tulane refresh my memory
so he’s bad colors uh green white blue and whenever you cast a creatures card
you draw a card and you may put a land out on the battlefield it’s it’s stupid
so I had a lot of ETB effect creatures and I did I had the new thaw out the new
thoughts of that blinks and and I was blinking back a Reiki ohm answer which
allows you to return target instance or sorcery from your graveyard back to your
hand and so I kept getting back render silent which reads you counter targets
spell that player can’t cast any more spells that turn so and there was only
me and one other person left and he got me down to four life so I just kept on
bouncing back render silent over and over again to slowly start painting and
killing them and it was so disgusting I must have cast it like ten ten turns you
should feel really bad about yourself I actually do a little bit because I need
to find ways to win faster I didn’t feel bad about it really
it was a IIIi did admit to cuz he’s my friend and all day and I told him like I
know this is it’s very slow and that’s why I’m I need to invest in a crater
hoof behemoth I would have been just real salty I would have been like I’m
done by well and so he did get back at me in the next game he played captains
to say okay he ended up mine slavering me over and
over again do you know what mine slaver mine slaver is you that’s right I keep
forgetting you’re only like 2 years old and magic and magic terms so mine slaver
basically allows you to control target players turn so he just kept on
controlling my turn over and over again oh my god to get back at me and I told
him I’m not even mad that you did that so I definitely did yeah okay well
that’s some interesting EDH stuff that we’ve had going on in our lives recently
I wanted to talk about real quick the magic creator program for content
creators I don’t know if you’re not a content creator it you may not even know
much about this but Wizards of the coast is doing this program where there they
have incentives for people to pretty much stream arena they give you codes to
get out to your community if you if you do special things while playing arena
like build an all creatures deck and you win a game with with the creatures deck
or build a Brassica deck and win a game using her her ultimate ability or
something like that yeah and then you get the codes to give out to your
community which i think is really great because literally any creator can sign
up for this and if you’re all right already streaming arena then what’s the
difference you’re actually getting something getting the codes to give out
to your community for doing something you’re already doing and there was like
backlash about it when it first came out but I think great idea um are you
involved in the program soui yes I am and I’ve already done a bunch of the
challenges last month and gave out a bunch of codes and it’s it can be it’s
pretty fun it depending on the challenge of course there are some challenges
where I’m like I’m gonna have to spend hours and hours
and ours is try to get this one challenging but but for the most part
they break up your regular routine and do different things or build different
decks that you wouldn’t typically do and there was some discussion about how
Wizards was gonna support creators that are streamers and using a program like
that I kind of think that they could support creators that aren’t streamers
like if you’re making a podcast or even writing an article they could maybe be
given some sort of direction to write about a specific thing or or get
feedback from the community or a new product that’s coming out or you know I
don’t know something like that I feel like you could do with creators that
aren’t streamers yeah I feel like so there’s already a few challenges out
there now that um allow you to submit videos um like pre-recorded videos on
you know being able to get the codes and whatever and I feel like that’s a good
start and I agree that they need to start incorporating podcast articles and
the other kind of stuff out there too that does like content creation because
I mean let’s just be honest streaming is the biggest thing right now
in terms of the content creation and version you know gone are the old days
of making youtube videos I mean they’re still there they’re so really popular
and all that stuff but and that’s I that’s why I like make a podcast too
because it’s a radio show ya know I mean it’s it’s just the way of the times and
I just hope that Wizards continues to try to at least do something for someone
people like us I think I think they are definitely going in the right direction
I think it’s a nice first step yeah its head Ted just mentioned that Ellie wrote
a really great article about this entire topic
yes hares blog I read it and yeah it really it really was great yeah she did
she I even answered a bunch of questions for her and we went
back and forth on it and um it’s uh she had a lot of good points Lum podcasters
are just content creator normies what creator normies how dare you yeah how
dare you because listen Meghan are maria are podcasters and they’re not normies
they’re like the pinnacle well but aren’t they super casual though I mean
oh they like go to all of the events and they know everything that’s going on and
Woolery is like the the announcer yeah but that doesn’t mean she’s um oh they
have Pro points oh oh so I guess they aren’t normies anymore you’re definitely
not normal they know way too much about this game they’re beyond normies like I
thought they started off like being normal it start out being normies for
sure because their podcast was originally called magic the a maturing
yeah I remember that yeah so they started out as normies but they have
moved past enormous real fast I mean like so like Maria Maria announced it is
an announcer for like some of the events and stuff and she has to like know what
what she’s talking about and what cards people are yeah i if I was up there I
would just be like oh my god they’re playing a counterspell like wow what a
dirty card you know but she’s she knows what’s going on yeah I guess that is
true yeah okay I I guess that is true I guess yeah because you don’t really see
him do pro play and um but yeah uh who said in chat they have pretty yeah Andy
says they have Pro points holy shit I did not know that they started as
normies but they are good it’s true yeah they got good yeah we’re normies forever
nor oh one thing I wanted to ohso so still talking about the creator program
the so a lot of the rewards they’re given out right now like you mentioned
our community codes which can be any random a lot of
random stuff it’s I’ve seen it as low as like an uncommon card to people getting
gems or like a few rare cards and all that do you think those are pretty
decent for the rewards for now or should there be something more to give out to
your community I think for most of the challenges I think that they’re scaled
pretty appropriately like you know if they just want you to build a silly deck
and play it like you know what kind of reward do you expect you know I mean but
I think getting like 20 codes for your community it’s I guess it depends on the
size of your community like for me that would be a lot but um I don’t know I
guess maybe somebody with a really large community that wouldn’t be quite as much
but I don’t have a problem with it right now hey I don’t know what they’re gonna
do going forward and honestly like in my opinion they could do nothing like they
could easily just do nothing but they’re trying to do some you know and I really
think it’s the right direction they’re really trying to support all of us in
some way and I think that’s a good thing it’s definitely a because in the right
direction yeah because the thee that one of the
things that Eli mentions in her article or not Eli Ellie yeah I’m Elizabeth I’m
uh I’m I’ll just say Elizabeth it’s easier for me what Elizabeth says in her
article is and what we also talked about back and forth was you know what do you
do for the smaller streamers or the smaller content creators that you know
if we were to just if wizards were to pay you actual money you know then
they’re gonna completely ignore the smaller content grit is this is a way
for them to include be inclusive with the smaller with the smaller small fries
and Norman and the normies and you still even get a little something out of it
because they also give you personal gain codes which you can give away
your community there are a thousand gems you can either keep it for yourself or
give it to your community you know and it’s and it’s more like you said if
you’re streaming anyway you know this is just another way to you know help
yourself out yeah and get more engagement in your
community you know just make things a little bit more exciting with the codes
and stuff I do I think it’s a good thing all around Britain yeah um so let’s jump
into our topics for tonight what have we got first Oh first one is
I’m super super super excited about this and usually I don’t get that excited
about ancillary products like on them like real hardcore typically yet most of
the time and this is the new one is jump start I am so excited about this because
it it’s um it’s sort of what I wish the unset were yeah in a sense because I
love the idea of unset but I never play them past like a pre-release because you
can’t do anything with the cards yeah after the fact I’ve never had I’ve never
played when an unsent has been released like this unsanctioned I think just came
out you know and this is my first one and like I didn’t even get any because I
thought why it will unsanctioned is more like a board game like you just you buy
it and it comes with pre-constructed decks or something and you play play
against them but the so unstable which was the last one is sort of like a
regular magic set release okay but it but and you did a pre-release and lays
it was fun for the first time but then after that you’re like I never want to
play it again yes you can’t do anything with the cards and they don’t the only
worthwhile thing for getting the actual cards is the basic lands yeah yeah
people love those lands right yeah so the thing I really like about jump start
is from what I understand is all you need to be able to build a deck is you
take two booster packs just mash them together and there you go you got a deck
where I’m really excited about it too I think
this is a great product for normies oh my god and yeah I I can’t wait to play
the and a lot of the booster I don’t know if you’re gonna be able to tell
what theme is on each booster pack but there’s gonna be okay yeah okay so each
one’s gonna be surprised because there’s things for each booster like summer
goblin summer like cats some are pirates stuff like that somewhere somewhere
there’s like there’s like 36 or 46 different themes like there’s a lot yeah
and they’re just all gonna be random so yeah you won’t know what’s in there and
you just mix two of them together and then you have like your like pirate cats
or whatever your two random themes are so um yeah I’m I’m really looking
forward to it I think it’ll be a lot of fun yeah I will one first thing we have
to say is you and I are gonna have to definitely play the Sunstream and like I
don’t even I’ll even buy a box of this to just uh yeah I think I
I just like I said before like I think this is a great product for normies like
you don’t have to worry about building a deck like you literally just put the
cards together and that’s also what everybody else is gonna be doing you
know it’s better than like um it’s better than link if you get a
planeswalker deck or something right that’s a pre-constructed deck but those
are bad really yeah yeah and nobody else is playing that like you can’t play that
against anyone ever know they’re always terrible yeah but this is like there’s
even gonna be a pre-release for this product so yes like you’re really just
gonna get to play this against other people and there’s going to be a real
place for it and it’s super casual because you don’t have to do anything so
just put the cards together and I feel like this is also a really great product
for new players as well too because because think about it one of the most
daunting things for new players is building a deck right I mean you you try
to get them in – because this is sort of like combines
limited and constructed into one and what limited is my favorite you know cut
way to play like especially Cuban sealed and all that so this sort of brings my
love of sealed and constructed together and if I want to get someone new who you
know knows how to play magic but doesn’t really know much about sealed or
anything move this is perfect yeah and they’ll have like a unique deck also you
know it’ll be like their own little thing and I think I remember seeing that
each booster pack is gonna have like a themed land in it to be super exciting
cuz like what does that even mean what is a cat themed land I have no idea they
said they said there’s gonna be almost 500 reprints which I’m fine with
yeah hopefully there’s a lot of cool reprints – they also did say there are
gonna be a lot of course at 2021 cards in this as well – which is fine it’s
coming out at like the same time or yes same day or the next week or something
and I mean this is where the best thing is is these are gonna be legal in legacy
vintage and commander yeah these are not gonna be pioneer modern legal cards but
there will be legacy vintage and commander playable yeah so the commander
the de Normie format says that he can’t imagine the decks can be both good and
balanced which makes me fear for new players for experienced players it’s a
diversion that’s fun he wants to try it yeah it’s it’s possible I mean that that
is true we don’t know I mean there’s just like anything there’s a lot of
speculation we don’t know what cards are gonna be in it we don’t know what the
power levels gonna be like and one to me this is sort of like since there’s gonna
be like 500 cards it’s almost sort of like a chaos sealed sort of yeah you
don’t have to that you don’t have to worry about building you just put the
booster path together boom yeah I think it’ll be great
I’m I hope it’ll be great because it sounds
really fun and I like that is something totally different but also like real
easy cuz you know yeah well what’s also cool is they’re gonna bring this to
arena as well to be like the next it’ll like the historic anthology historic set
yeah yeah that’ll be great hey thank you for the follow I don’t
think sandy yeah just say Andy it’s easier hey JJ okay let’s play our theme
song real quick oh yeah doo-doo-doo-doo to Bernoulli’s I love it I love it I
can’t wait to get the ad out there that I made – oh that’s right we’re moving
commercial for a magic for Norman’s it’s gonna be real good it’s almost done I
just got to do the finishing touches of it and it’s um hilarious I think you’ll
like yeah it’s really funny I don’t mean to like to my own horn but it’s funny I
didn’t write it though zoobi wrote it so he gets all the credit for the car I
just thought of it what driving to work one day I had to go down to the office
one day and just it just popped up in my head
yeah it happens that’s great so that’s gonna be jumpstart I’m super excited
about it can’t wait for it same and so I guess we can move on to our next topic
do you want to break do you want to talk about the next topic okay oh yes but I
haven’t heard anything about this okay so would you play magic at a game stop
is this a thing I’ve never heard before apparently there are a few stores in the
u.s. that are starting to do this now and it looks like they’re they’re doing
it in Tulsa Oklahoma to start off with and out of all the places in the US
Tulsa so I guess games this is like it’s like an allergy yes
but it’s just you know not your local game store
it’s your countrywide store what am I trying to say here it’s very like chain
it’s like you know it’s a chain corporate chain the sense right so it
seems a little weird but it definitely what’s the difference when it comes down
to well the thing is is that you know this is gonna if this becomes a thing
there is a big possibility this can push out a lot of small business LG s’s yeah
that would be the concern and and I and this is sort of like the next logical
step for gamestop because they have been failing yeah you know their
brick-and-mortar stores yes they’ve been dying for years now they’ve closed down
so many stores worldwide and because a lot of people will just buy their games
on Amazon or buying digital now because it’s a lot cheaper and if you have when
was the last time you went to a game stop last weekend and it’s basically
become almost like a toy store in a sense now right there’s a lot of stuff
in there but I kind of like that because we don’t I’m not I’m not downplaying it
or anything it’s yeah like I don’t have a good LGS near me so like I go to the I
go to the game stop and they even sell some magic products like I’ll go in
there and look to see if they have any good stuff that’s like on sale because
they’ll have magic products in there and it might be like older stuff but it will
be on sale and I’m like yeah sure I’ll get this bundle yeah no no and see for
someone like you where you don’t have a good LGS or you may not have an LDS knew
your area this could be something that could be useful for someone someone like
you and um but as I said before cuz game stopped for a long time is just nothing
but video games now they’ve gone out to you know selling shirts toys you know
all this other stuff and so this is sort of the next step for them and it’s I’ll
be curious to see if this goes further in the u.s. especially depending on
which market you know if this were to possibly come – let’s just say comes to
my hometown and I only have one LGS left and I’ve got two game stops here it’s
possible it could kill my local game store and I freaking love that place you
know yeah I mean I definitely don’t want it to do that but like you were saying
for people who don’t have the LGS it might be a really nice alternative if
they do expand it but I don’t know yeah I mean how else is gonna go over in
Oklahoma and it’s not like I know a ton but I don’t know anybody from Oklahoma
yeah I mean it’s it’ll be I’ll be curious to keep
watching this to see how well this does because it’s like I said I think it’s an
excellent I’m a lot of people just played video games at home and didn’t
ever really want to go out and meet people there was like that period of
time where you know not a lot of people met up and played games together as much
whenever like you know the internet of things really started happening maybe
this is starting around 2007-2008 how it’s becoming more and more common for
people to want to get together and play tabletop games the indie board games and
it’s getting more and more popular that people want that human interaction and
it’s you know if Game Stop sees the writing on the wall you know hey let’s
get into this business you know in the other thing that Game Stop has that a
lot of these uh mom-and-pop shops don’t is they’ve got game stops you know
financial backing even though they are losing a lot of money but they could
possibly get a lot of them investors investing into them for this so yeah
it’s a little scary to be honest for the small for the small shops just sorta go
yeah because I think of just bringing Florida here because we
have cool stuff and games here and they have um I want to say three stores in
Florida so you know that could hurt them there’s starts it will start sitting in
that they don’t have a store anymore I don’t think they do do it does starts
out I can’t remember I don’t think Channel fireball has a
store anymore um I’m too normally to know those things I can’t remember right
I’m a little yeah I don’t know um what what are there some big LGS chains are
there any others that are I don’t know um no Chet Chet is there Game Stop has
Wi-Fi I’ve only used it for the special Pokemon district you could play arena
there that’s true use game south Wi-Fi but I might try now really really so the
question is would you play Magic at a game stop what I play Magic at a Game
Stop probably not because I’m so marmie I’m afraid I’m really afraid to play
Magic with other people that I don’t know ya know and that could be a whole
nother topic yeah sure but um it’s I see the possibility of I mean right now I
wouldn’t play Magic at a games thought but if my LGS is close nearby and I had
no other choice II I would unfortunately yeah I’d be grudgingly do it because I’d
still want to keep my D&D and magic scene alive somehow well if the dandy
and magic scene moved over to the game stop I’d have to follow where the people
are now they’re games that people which yeah I don’t know if I like that this is
a downer dang okay well let’s change the subject whoa
I almost dropped my phone okay you do I almost my phone I almost dropped my
phone oh my god that’s right that’s right we were Zack and I were talking
about that in on twitter twitter yes about your huge
huge phone yeah it’s practically a tablet pretty
much yeah I’m not sorry I love it okay so next we’re talking about what player
archetype are you um I don’t know anything about this I don’t know
anything about these words all right so let’s go over each of the archetypes and
let’s try to figure out which archetype both of us are okay cuz I’m this is this
is always fun because I feel like myself personally I sort of vary between I
guess or depends on what type of what day it is okay okay what archetype I am
um so the first one is one uh probably one of my favorite ones that’s a tinny
slash Tammy okay a Timmy er Tammy is characterized by their tendency to use
big creatures and casts big spells large exciting plays motivate them Timmy’s are
most associated with playing for fun and all kinds of huge creatures fantastic
spells and mythical enchantments they are the most social archetype enjoying
the interaction that magic provides a stereotypical Timmy tant slash Tammy is
usually a younger player with a simple yet fun for them deck they do not care
whether they win or lose but want to have fun playing really big effects okay
there are definitely days that I feel like a Timmy
a need eh hmm I don’t feel I don’t I’ve never felt like that I don’t really care
to play big creatures I like to play creatures but not big creatures does
that make a difference no well I mean is do you like also cast well because Timmy
is a so Timmy er Tammy or whatever whatever yeah various you want to use on
their most associate with playing for fun is the biggest thing and that can
include you know big creatures awesome spells cool enchantments okay doing
Yankee stuff like yeah your your night deck I remember okay for the vampire
okay so I’m a maybe for that one well after all right
okay one of my favorite decks to play is my villus brawl deck on arena villus why
can I not remember what that he’s this big stupid demon that whenever whenever
you pay life first any sort of casting class you may draw a card or something
like that so you play a bunch of stuff where you where you pay life and you
drop tons of cards and it’s just like silly and stupid and I pretty much never
win with the deck but I love it good but it’s just not it so maybe that would
would qualify that’s a pretty Timmy deck okay okay so so let’s get on the next
one and let’s see how this one you know speaks to you so next one is Johnny
slash Jenny okay a Johnny or Jenny is characterized by their tendency to build
complex and creative decks they are most commonly known as a combo player and
they sometimes choose for elaborate but inefficient win conditions they like to
find interesting combinations of cards that can win the game or give them an
advantage Johnny may be a player who seeks knit niche cards or cards why did
we repute it as bad and tries to break them exploiting them in ways to give
abnormal power and win the game they are most happiest when their decks work and
they win their way for them one in many one in many leaves them happy if that
one is on their own terms I don’t know like I kind of feel like
that is maybe sort of how I feel about my villas deck but it’s definitely not
complex it’s just stupid I would never tried I would never try to look for a
bad card and play with it to break it like never okay okay so you don’t really
like trying to now I do like to I do like to find interesting combinations to
play sometimes like I built this fun deck that was um it was like
a revenge of ravens and ill-gotten inheritance deck and so it was my it was
your it was so it was like you were getting you gained a lot of little life
but then like every time you gain a life your opponent’s lose life with with the
with the Epicure of blood and stuff like that yeah so it was kind of a weird
janky thing but I don’t know like maybe that’s more of a Timmy deck I don’t know
you could almost construed is almost a little bit of both because there and by
combo you know a lot of people mistake combo as just like infinite combos or
anything something like that but these could be like they said interesting
combinations of cards where they work well together they may not be very good
but but if you can manage to get the four or five pieces of that little combo
out you’re unstoppable yes that’s I feel about this ill-gotten
inheritance revenge of Ravens deck like you’ve got to have like these four cards
otherwise you’re just like this is Dom okay so maybe I don’t know some like
that okay okay this next one pretty sure both of us aren’t this but
uh next one is spike okay spike is characterized by their competitive
nature and they play primarily to prove how good they are not even read the rest
it’s no no no I I probably could have been considered a spike you know years
ago but not anymore I don’t care anymore about I’m
competitive and I want to win like everybody wants to win right you know
but but are you always gonna play the best deck no no no no no I actually hate
playing the best X yes as Patrick fever just said in chat
mister kitten this is mr. kitten he will only ever play if he plays any deck on
arena that beats him he immediately looks up the deck and starts playing
that one oh dang yeah yeah yeah like the top tier decks it’s
thinking that I’m gonna get he’s gonna get talking in here uh oh no it’s true
that I must defend my honor yeah and it’s fine like it’s fine you
wanna you wanna play the best day I mean actually a lot of the tier 1 decks on
arena 2 and especially if you’re playing the ladder like you have to play them to
climb the ladder like you have to especially if you want to get past gold
yeah okay good because you can play jank up to gold and then when you get gold
it’s nothing but meta decks at that point for right exactly
and I’ve only gotten past gold once and I don’t think ever again it was such a
freaking grind I don’t want to do that again I’ve never even gotten into gold
because that’s how little I care yes I feel like if the rewards for ladder were
better at the end of each month then I might want to try to get past gold more
but I don’t the rewards are so mad that I don’t and
it’s really hard and you lose a lot even if even when you’re playing the top tier
decks you still lose a lot because everybody’s just there’s always gonna be
that mono red player yeah yeah sure it’s okay you know it’s coming from the
control player who will lock you down and never let you play magic so yeah oh
yeah oh yeah and there are there are times I even feel disgusted with myself
a little bit the next one is a Mel or a Melvin or Melanie Oh Mel is the mechanic
player someone focused on the craft of design and development a Mel is
characterized for appreciating cards are delicate and interesting interactions as
well as strong mechanics a metal appreciates that there are many
different elements that have to come together to make a magic card function
structurally from the color pi to the mana system to the rules
so the templating to the mechanical needs of the set that’s definitely not
me what I don’t even know what that means
so it seems like they care more about the design of magic cards than actually
playing them like how they fit in the game itself but like they care more
about if a card is designed well from what it seems like okay so that’s not a
style of play no oh no that’s just a person in the community or something and
they just really love card design yeah and I guess the last one is similar to
is not really a style of plays the forthose the whore ‘those is basically
the person the flavor player they say someone focused on the craft of the lore
essentially of the of the of the magic universe gotcha um there are I do like
the magic lore I’m definitely not that deep into it mm-hmm but um I just wish
it were a little bit better and more well loved yeah I like what little I
hear of the Lord just like from the sets that come out but I personally am NOT
interested in like getting deep into reading like the old books and stuff
like that I really got into World of Warcraft lore and I read all of those
books and some of those are so good they really are like they’re really good but
but I just feel like I can’t get into that with magic because it’s like
learning a whole other civilizations history and I’m just like not about that
well I mean and to be honest a lot of the written works of magic they aren’t
that well written and it kind of makes it hard so like if you really wanted to
get into the lore I would just you know what do you call it uh synopsises of a
lot of the books and you get a general gist of the lord because it’s you’re
really not missing much yeah oh lord she’s back on her well shit
again Aaron all right so you know I don’t even
play Wow anymore but I still love following the story of it like I haven’t
played battle for Azeroth and months and months now but I still I went when the
new patch dropped I still you know read up all about it
yeah I have not kept up with the current well or at all sorry
it’s not very good yeah so you’re not missing much okay well good I feel
better now okay so wait so which type of player are
you mm-hmm it’s I like I said I think it really
depends on the day work most days I probably feel like a Timmy but certain
days also feel like a Johnny because I’ll just get a bug up my butt and find
like some cool cards I want to try to build a deck out of like um like I put
on Twitter I think last week or something might or brand mano read deck
so might or brand mano read is I cannot wait to get this combination of cards to
play out repercussion and blasphemous act repercussion reads whenever a
player’s creature takes damage their controller takes that much damage as
well too so they say you have a lot of creatures out and then I play
blasphemous act which deals 13 damage to each creature and you have a lot of
creatures out boom you’re dead yeah and you’re gonna play that the next time we
play 88 runs history yes yes hey it’s not blue it’s not blue either I would
rather die some mana red than blue like I would much rather so there’s that for
sure and and one of my favorite cards in that deck is called impatience so
impatience reads if if any player does not play a spell on their turn they take
to damage so it kind of forces you so kind of forth so the control players
we’re and to play something yep ordered or
they’re going to damage yeah because my tour brand I’ve got all the cards that
boost up the amount of damage red can do to a player because I think I did the
math tour brand can do up to 20 extra damage if I were to get you know the
perf all the perfect creatures out and all that it’s it’s I cannot wait I
haven’t haven’t haven’t played it yet but it’s some I don’t even care if it
loses if I can just kill some people with it I’ll be happy yeah it sounds fun
I honestly would not mind dying to that it sounds good it’s because um so I’ve
been sort of trying to challenge myself with building these decks that aren’t
very control based and I’m trying like I’m trying to steer away from blue as
much even though the next tune gets even though the next two decks I’m probably
gonna build our blue so what what archetype would you say you feel um I
guess I feel like I’m a mixture between Timmy Tammy and Johnny Johnny all four
of them yeah because I don’t feel like I’m entirely a Timmy Tammy
because I do care whether I win or lose I mean if anyone’s watch me play Arena
on stream like I get real salty when I lose oh oh yeah oh yeah no no I totally
understand that but it’s but I’m yeah I mean it seems like the Timmy Tammy is
just like pretty laid-back and just wants to play to play and have fun I’m
sort of mostly like that but I also like to come up with some weird interesting
combos on my own that aren’t like the meta decks I kind of like to come up
with my own stuff it’s always real and it loses horrific Lee but I at least
it’s mine though right yeah yeah I haven’t felt like that in a
law standard but that’s that’s why I’m glad they brought Birol in it because I
like as I like brewing more for EDH and brawl because it’s one it’s one of any
car you know and it’s not having that worry about multiples of something for
sure because sometimes you don’t you have to think we’ll is to of this card
better than three or you know just go for or yeah no yeah yeah and gets a
little bit tough but yeah okay so I feel like we’re both kind of the same we’re
sort of like a mixture of Timmy and Johnny which I guess most normies would
be probably or enorme would just be a full timmy also yeah for sure yeah no
slice here sorry no we don’t do spikes around here everyone there yes we just
don’t really magic with them sorry but but I don’t think they’re there they’re
not competitive EDH players are they yeah oh they are yes oh I thought they
were just regular EDH I’d see how much I know they’re all about the competitive
edho much I know yeah yeah we don’t know offense but we don’t want to play
mediation with them we would yeah get destroyed yeah but that reminds me when
I went to UM Grand Prix was a Tampa or Orlando last year I met up with
commander 99 oh yeah and and I thought I knew a lot about EDH until I met him
yeah and I feel like I know nothing about EDH feel like I know nothing about
magic a lot of times that’s how I feel all the time so what it’s like being an
army but okay with it yeah all right so do you want to get into our last topic
here the we’ll probably be pretty quick yeah and
then we can get into our little game all right so what is your favorite and least
favorite color and why let’s start with your favorite color of magic and why my
favorite color is black um why because I don’t know like I didn’t I didn’t start
out playing with my favorite color being black I started out playing with my
favorite color probably being white because I thought life game was cool um
but then as I play more I’m like life game is fine but there’s really no point
to it if all you’re doing is gaining life so I really like black um I like
black mechanics I like sacrifice and so there’s a lot of sacrificing in black
decks I like I like some black stuff where you get to pay your own life to do
stuff rather than having to pay manna I like graveyard stuff I like bringing
stuff back from my graveyard because it doesn’t feel so bad when your creatures
get killed cuz then you’re like oh I know I can bring this back like yeah I’m
not so upset this isn’t the end of the world you’d like a lot of the recursion
that black can provide yes so that is my favorite color to play for sure
and what about your Lee’s favorite my least favorite color to play is blue
because I don’t know when to play control spells I don’t know when to play
them whether it’s a not just a counterspell but like a removal spell
like which creature should I use this on like is this creature um big enough
threat like what if it’s just a medium thread and I know they have something
works like so should I save my removal for that or should I go ahead and use it
on this that is why I don’t like blue I also don’t like with a lot of blue you
know with your removal or with your counter spells you have to play that on
your opponent’s turn and I don’t I like doing AK
things on my turn like whether I’m attacking with creatures or something I
like doing something being able to do something and I don’t I don’t like
playing playing cards on my opponents turn cuz I’m just not very good and so
it confuses me so well it sounds like you like you like a lot of the more
interaction you know that you you like a lot of doing stuff and not just holding
back yeah yes that makes sense so what about you what’s your favorite color to
play so I mean it’s probably gonna be a little bit obvious it it is blue is my
favorite color um with it’s very very the other color
that’s very very very close to being my favorite is also green oh so blue blue
is mainly my favorite I control is my favorite archetype um and I think a lot
of it has to do with because it really reminds me of playing kind of old school
magic on back when I was a kid and it’s I really and it really depends on the
standard meta too and because I’m not really a big fan of the control decks of
this meta I loved um the control decks they had back and Dragons at arc here
the Esper and blue black control they had back then I and the one thing I
really like about controlling with blue is knowing when to cast your spell’s
because a lot of it is just look it’s it’s not only repetition is also
learning what are the threats you know that and what in and it’s also really
knowing what your opponent’s debt can and can’t do
that’s the big thing too and once you’ve learned that yeah you you really know
okay well if I get rid of this creature now you know they could possibly bring
out their bigger creature but let me get rid of this now because then I can
always deal with that other one yeah everything you’re saying about why you
like blue is why I don’t like blue like I’m just not familiar enough with the
game to know what my opponents playing I mean like you know if I was playing
standard Metta all the time that’s one thing but yes I just I don’t I’m not I
just don’t really play enough to even know all of the cards that are even in
standard right now so I mean I guess I can kind of guess for the most part but
yeah I don’t ever I can barely keep up with what I’m playing okay I cannot keep
up with what my opponent is playing to like I can’t do it no I I guess maybe
that’s still a little bit of spike left in me because out of all the formats
that I’d still love to follow I still love following standard I still love
following the meta of standard to me it’s one of the most exciting ones
because it changes so often yeah and with arena now that I can afford to play
all the tier 1 standard decks I don’t have to spend you know hundreds and
hundreds of dollars in paper magic in order to play standard now and now I can
play it whenever I want I’m probably even more addicted to standard now more
than ever yeah so it’s I so that’s one of the reasons
why I like blue is mainly control um probably my least favorite color Oh God
um would probably have to be red oh okay and because I try to think about it
because because I to me it’s almost white but I there’s just a lot about red
that just um I guess I’m not a big fan of its I’m not a big fan of the burn
yeah I’m not a big fan of aggro which because and it’s funny because whenever
I do build an aggro deck I play up more control than aggro well it’s it’s not
just pooping out your hand all at once it’s knowing put out a few creatures try
to win with them and then you know they try to play something burn them down well you know what I mean yeah
like that or or or vomit out of your hand worse I think vomit out your hand
is worse yeah I knew Tim yes yeah I in it’s just it’s not a play style that I’m
a big fan of I can play aggro I know how to play it but I’m not a fan of it yeah
um I like aggro but I don’t know it also really became drawn to it yeah and also
depends on the aggro deck like um one of my favorite aggro decks that I’ve ever
played it was something that can’t Safran Olive actually came up with for
modern like years ago called a thwack which is a lot of low costing goblins
and you just play him and try to win by turn to return for um I sort of did a
janky combination of it I can’t remember any of the card names but you play a
zero casting cost artifact like ornithopter or midnight and then oh you
play a card called cold da the rebirth on turn one get three one one red goblin
creature tokens and then you play a turn to Bushwhacker which pumps up all those
goblins so you’re dealing six six damage by turn two and then or six or nine
damaged by turn two then by turn three you try to pump them up again and win I
don’t like I don’t like a lot of the mana red decks because the creature like
the creature archetype is usually goblins and I don’t think they’re very
cute got God on rebel master can be Q and Legion war bosses q they’re my
favorite goblins they’re okay but they’re not super cute so that’s one of
the main reasons why I don’t like them what about goblin matron I don’t know
what goblin matron looks like she’s thank you this you were a hat she yes
she was like a Hatter or uh search it for something else was kind of like an
old she’s kind of like an old lady so old ladies can be cute sure the candy
but it’s not her though so our okay that’s gonna have to be one
of our games then I’m gonna have to find a whole bunch of golf and pixie rates
them on a cuteness scale of I’m gonna write that down on our ideas folder
because that is gonna have to be something we do so the secret lair of
goblins are cute and they are kind of cute pixie rates goblin cards by
cuteness and we can do other uh typically we can write anything by
cuteness I’ll totally do that that’s a great idea
got what are some other creatures tires that’s so easy a good ninety-nine
percent of them are cute some of them are gross like night of the ebon Legion
that one’s actually kind of gross I mean yeah yeah um we could do rats oh we
could do rats that would be a good one cuz um there are some gross rats
yeah what are some other ones up chat help us out here what are some other
ones we could do yeah what are some creature types that we could rape by
cuteness um what about some of those weird old creatures the weird old
accrete that doesn’t what about like the slivers or something yes sliver that’s
my favorite creature type and we could do elves weird is that a creature type
weird are but are there a lot of weirds though I don’t I mean that is a creature
type I just don’t know if there’s a lot of a lot of them though I agreed your
tape I creature type I think there are three um we could do dragons no but I
think I think we need to start out with goblins first cuz that’ll be um okay
we’re apparently we apparently need to do an entire episode rating every
creature type by their cuteness yes it’ll be and it’ll
be official super and wizards will have to make us endorse us and make us the
official cuteness Raider tester things I don’t know what you’d call it
yeah Oh minotaurs that’s right oh no he said men are our men are ours good job Efrain he corrected himself but
we can still see the mistakes oh yeah it’s funny all right
uh I guess do we want to go onto our game now yeah let’s play our game all
right so what are we playing tonight pixie so the game we’re playing tonight
is how do you pronounce that magic card we’re gonna play our theme music doo doo
doo – I still can’t hear I know I’m sorry how do you pronounce that magic
card this is gonna be great okay how do you pronounce the magic card we need to
have Clint start doing the theme song for all these games oh yeah every
segment yes he’s gonna be like I’m out or he’s gonna be like you gotta pay me
to do this yeah pretty much okay so around a bunch of random magic
cards with really weird names on them and we’re gonna try to pronounce them so
I think this is going to be a really great game so good
all right oh I’m getting my computer ready because I’m gonna share my screen
again okay I think I am ready to go let me share my screen
let me know when everyone can see my desktop zubi just murdered the
pronunciation of array key oh man sir is that how you say it array key oh man sir
how do you how do you how do you pronounce the name oh shit arc r RK r RK
oh man sir oh it’s art is it RKO it’s not a Reiki
oh yeah okay so we can see your desktop okay all right this first part okay all
right all right so pixie let’s start off with
you how do you say this name and then I’ll try to say it too okay this one’s
actually pretty easy I’m I’m pretty sure it is it’s hand
weird gears are you sure it’s like hot hon where Orhan honey would be hung
Huynh where garrison Oh Amy Hong there garrison that’s it because it doesn’t it
the arc does kind of look more German very well and this is from eldritch moon
to the Gothic set so it could be hon prayer hot hon bear on bear garrison uh
yeah okay well I think it’s probably hot pan we’re
Andy and chat says on we’re on we’re unaware how do you say the wir where or
we’re we’re I would say weird I would I would say weird I’m sort of like weird
but without the D right exactly oh shit Yeah right on we’re under garrison if I
ever see this card I’m gonna say hyung V R garrison unbe R garrison a and then
you just say anything normally and you gotta add in the a because the can for
the Canadian Ted sure sure Humvee are a oh where is Howard pronounce it and
Efrain says in chat han Ye ha no I’m from Texas hey hey you play that Homer gears when
don’t forget when Han where garrison attacks you put 2 1 1 red human creature
tokens on the battlefield tapped an attack you
oh my gosh males are where battlements I think so we’ve officially decided the
official pronunciation for the suttas honda bear hunt bears oh we need the LA
hundred there yes hundred garrison yeah yeah with the a at the alright let’s go
to the next one here okay how do you pronounce this name oh okay um here we
go did you two Gero Gero that’s how I see stick jr. the Jer Roo you probably
don’t pronounce the D at all right it’s probably Jer room well if it’s Jerry
without the D is silent is it G root like giru or Jerry
Oh G giru giru giru yeah okay so I think that yes the D is probably silent just
like you know Django the movie Django oh yeah that’s right you don’t write you
don’t say did Django but I mean you could if you’re like did Django if
you’re from Texas right you could be like okay good giru or well okay okay
let’s not pick on Texas let’s just pick on effort
okay well this or yeah I mean I’m in Tennessee so I’m I’m alive I’m you’re in
Florida like we’re allowed to wear in this house well I’m in Central Florida
which is more northern than and people don’t have an accent do they they they
have a southern as a when I get when I get drunk I do get a little bit of a
twine I’m serious if my Twain starts to come out I guess I’ll have to get drunk
next time I don’t know if they’d be a good thing though yeah we can do that
magic for normies episode three drunk episode oh shit Giroux like Jeremy jo JJ
Jerry Jerry Jerry Jerry Jerry Jerry Jarrett urja is it Jay
or JRuby aremy is gerrae like a rail like Robert like rah-rah
sound magic for drunk is magic for junkies that’s a good JJ run J run um I
think it’s Jerry and I could see starting like Jeremy starts jay jay roo
jai rue de j Roo Gero Gero Gero I don’t like it I don’t
either that’s a bad name sorry Giroud with eyes open my eyes are gonna
be closed why does it just specify like with your
with eyes open like everybody’s eyes are open bro like what
Jiayu hey don’t make fun of us Andy we’re trying to figure this out alright
that’s the next one I have no idea how to okay is this another one of those
silent letters in the front okay so first of all this is a vampire okay I
like that oh snap I didn’t even realize it go but
it’s a demure vampire so which is not bad
yeah you should like de mirror it’s black half black oops
whoa I didn’t mean what does I didn’t mean to do that you didn’t see that no I
didn’t actually okay so I think it’s um it’s probably
that it’s probably just the tzaddik tzaddik lord of Secrets yeah it’s
probably just Zadok but y at y have the s in the front then if it’s just attic
is is it Suzette ik this is a tit I feel like we’re adding in another
syllable in there that we shouldn’t be says says deck as sets addict sad deck
sad deck there’s only one up but there’s only one D though how do you have sad
deck sad deck if it sprouts add that could be Sadek
and I’m sad deck yeah like because you’re playing Damir
it’s a sad deck right yeah I think it’s I think it’s a deck Zedeck yeah I think
the S is silent you know what I just changed my mind I think is zadok zadok
yeah they yeah they though phonetically it would be Zedeck lord of space they
yeah they say well what is there a word that starts with Z a know that I can
think of they so Zappos Zadok but but Zappos is za PPOs so that’s true it has
two consonants after the a it has like this short o sound whoa are you a
English no basic phonetics zu b I’m pretty sure it’s as a deck I am
confident is a deck Lord of Secrets oh my god you know would be funny is if we
were to do this game again and we could actually get a actual linguist on the on
the show well these are names so it’s kind of like they don’t even fall under
grammar or any rules right not grammar but I don’t know who knows
you can pronounce any name any way you want
cuz yeah anyone else remember that video what videos you talking about oMG shoes
Zappos no I don’t know alright so we’ve officially decided this is Xena
I already forgot yeah it’s ok um alright next we’ve got
how do you pronounce this okay um ser Serendib oh I didn’t even see that
second word oh shoot searing Serendib efreeti what Serendib serendi be free
free Rand Dib hey hey you know did you did you try out the Serendib out there
Saturday’s a free okay so even in the flavor tanks it says summoners have
efreeti what is what is it ‘if reads what is this this is the creature type
nope and a free is like is like an indian
demon or something like that oh so you’re saying a freak and I’m saying eat
I’m saying III and you’re saying if it freaks I think it’s pronounced a freak
oh okay I messed it up then maybe check correct us cuz we’re dumb okay so I
think it’s Serendib efreet it’s it’s Serendib III really and I know you’re
making me say III yeah you say if read Efrain says wait was it that was a game
on Windows wasn’t it were away from the Yeti ski free and you just try not to
get killed if it’s or efreet I don’t know if we or
III I think it’s I think it’s a free F rate I think it’s a free because that’s
what I’ve said at the beginning and I’m just gonna stick to it no I’m not
thinking of Ifrit here alright Ifrit from final fantasy okay no I’m not what
you know what Efrain don’t drag you into this too bad oh boy
I’m dragging you so okay so what do we decide on is it Serendib if free or e3
it’s probably a free right that just sounds more
every wait what did you say I said if free I’m not free if read
there we go okay that’s what we agree on oh oh god I cannot say this card name though oh good because in our D&D
episode of 10 Street yep um we fought like I cook for the Sun no you guys
fought the Sun and who was it John and was it John or Johnny gave a mushroom
John Johnny oven mushrooms that’s all right and got him like completely
obliterated in high so and I could not pronounce this guy’s name
I have do you you try to pronounce it or should I hurt do you know how to
pronounce it um I don’t think I’ve ever said it before a bore bore Bergy Oh God
bore bore bore e nope no but Borg a MOS bore bore wait a sec this why is
throwing me off so bad the Borg a MOS the Borg a MOS no that
can’t be right bore bore bore Eagles we’re boring MOS
okay what okay wait the Borg are wigs mo Borba rig MOS no I don’t like that yeah
it is because you’re worth it but look if that why wasn’t I it would be bore
bore rig mos but borba rig Mouse no no he sang board
ba rig MOS or bore bore bore bore bore bore it MOS baby is it wouldn’t it be
bourbeau rig mouse mouse but Babur rig most the Borg a MOS Oh Borg a MOS
before get most because the why is before the G I’m pronouncing the G the
gut right but you’re saying bore bore get most but its bore bore rig Mose Bob
or rig Mose Lord most boring most there we go the world was forward most aborted
most oh my god that’s fuckin tough wizards wizards you know we’re not that
smart I can’t yeah I give up physically yeah oh gosh
okay you okay these are the cards that you picked
I just tried not to look at them you know okay guava okay it’s pretty easy
you’re saying guava I think it’s guava has oh gosh okay
koala hazard profiteer guava like waffa waffa you said guava like what like
waffles waffles you gonna hit with the waffle ball okay it’s probably guava
you’re probably right guava has a profiteer yeah look like guava has it he
he has it everyone has a price sure he has it has it it literally says everyone
has a price at the bottom or the only other thing guava has heed oh maybe I
don’t know I don’t know either good ah ha ha profiteer wha we’re just reading the chat Andy and
chat is telling us Gua good we have to pronounce phonetically because we were
like five-year-old kids yeah we can’t pronounce shit I think it’s I think it’s
guava though ha seed or hazard I mean I just said has it to begin with me I
think it’s hazard yeah I think it’s hazard
I think guava hazard like guava has it alright I think we can agree on that
are you ready for the next one yeah okay Nevin knee rolls disc did I i always
pronounces Nevin wrong so is it Nevin you’re all yeah you’re all cut cuz
because if we’re if we’re going by Borg a book bore be logic here right this
could be Nevin you’re all it should be never neural Efrain in chat says never
wrong if we go based on Borba camo or rigged MOS whatever whatever verb or
Remos but bor rig most magic for board bees oh my gosh I mean so unless the why
is silent here it’s never knee rolls yeah if it’s silent its Nevin rule if
it’s not the neva near all who live in their roles that if it’s silent or not
we do okay so I say it’s not if you could I don’t think it is be based on
Barbie logic never near all I think it’s never near old disc yes yep all right it
is efficient it’s official that’s it folks
oh god how the fuck do you say this okay kind of cute cute how is this thing
hurt I don’t want it to be hurt okay if you think this is cute
I’m kind of scared of what your definition of like human cuteness is
human hey we could raise human two like magic cards you know on their cuteness
we could stare best you’re scaring me now
I don’t know about it but he looks kind of scared so maybe it’s not cute okay so
how hard is this I don’t know if this is what makes an F sound right so right but
this is but this is so so I think you’re right it has to be at the pH has to be F
yeah this is it’s just possum attic because who puts an F next to a th like
that’s I know I was just about to Google how to pronounce this I don’t want to do
that no because I feel like that’ll be cheating it is cheating
I almost did it so so for thisss so everyone who’s listening out there it’s
not seeing the video its pH th is is yeah phasis that’s and it’s um this is
the commander 2013 printing I don’t know if this had any other printings yeah but
this is yeah Andy and chat same foot this is – that’s all yeah I think it’s
agreed it’s officially for thesis yes all right our next one okay um I think I
actually know how to pronounce it okay so you go first oh um get there
Rick no I think it’s actually pronounced skitter –ax skip the Rick’s
okay that makes sense yeah I said Skippy Riggs Skippy uruk’s or something yeah I
think I think it’s pronounced skitter –ax skip the Rick’s that’s probably
right that sounds way cooler than what I said and plus he has infect nothing’s
cooler than infect yeah I like this card and I like that art too it actually is
really cool or it it almost kind of reminds me of you know going back to WoW
me it almost kind of run minecraft yeah world war effort like one of the dragon
aspects just overlooking grizzly hills yeah and does that not look like grizzly
hills or like you know yeah and um ice crown and all that yep but like I like
that this artist name is just chippie chippie yeah I wonder I wonder if chippy
has made other magic because this is really good art it is good I like it
scary I’d like a play mat of this skittering skitter –ax thank you I’m
struggling with this one yeah it is a little bit tricky I’m trying too hard it
that’s what it is yeah get the rig’s I got it
ain’t no well normally I would have to concede to that I think pixie and I
aren’t well normies we are not well normies nope yeah are you still playing
well by the way no not really okay yeah me neither sorry no you’re
good alright next okay Oh God Oh God look at this look at this fancy
lady um okay here we go Heather Hudson what did you how did you
name this that’s the artist yeah okay Mary key Reed Barrett Emery Keary
Barrett Barrett we said the same thing so that must be what it is
