@fsecco said in So Many Insane Plays – Episode 73 – Eternal Weekend in Review:
@will I agree with you. I love the podcast and greatly respect Steve and Kevin's opinion and take on the format and have for years, but I feel they don't master Workshop nuances. I mean most of the wrong predictions in playable cards they had in the last few years were Shops cards (I remember Hangarback and now Spyglass, for example). I'm not an expert too, being also a blue player at heart, so it's great to see a Shops expert talk in the podcast.
I'm not sure how far off either one of us will be on Spyglass (and I was certainly not as enthusiastic as Kevin), but we were extremely accurate on Ballista (maybe even overshot the mark). Foundry Inspector was largely underestimated by everyone (I mean, here was the entire thread on TMD: http://www.themanadrain.com/topic/632/kld-foundry-inspector/12 ), so I don't think that's much of a sleight against us. Hangarback, I thought, was pretty widely covered, including by us.
I'm actually quite proud of our coverage of Workshop decks, especially in the preview show, since they generally get so little discussion.
I specifically went out of my way to talk about how the constellation of Inspector, Ravager, Ballista, Chief, etc. all work together, and I think we made a number of good observations. We talked about different ways to build Shops, etc.
The interview with Andy worked perfectly. He was great. And it was a seamless addition to the show. We've done lots of interviews in the past, including Ray Robillard, etc. And we can try to do more interviews in the future, but it's sometimes logistically challenging to find a time all three people can meet.
