Handshaking really doesn't make sense anyway, it was originally meant as a sign of peace because you couldn't draw a weapon. As nerds we are resistant to change and must accept the original meaning of the handshake. The opponents are "battling" so there really is no need for a sign of peace, I would prefer waving a white flag or giving your opponent the pick of your best livestock.

Hello all of you who would rather play some sweet type one than go play with pennies at the arcade,
This Saturday is the first Saturday of the month and though it isn't April fools day we are all still clowns.
Last year we did a "king of the hill" and I gave out some Jester's caps and a Jester's Sombrero, I want to do something similar but I would like some people to give me some ideas of cards that are funny (the art is funny, flavor text etc...) or bring some of your favorite cards so we can give them out as door prizes and king of the hill prizes.

Merfolk are fish if centaurs are horses. I do agree though that WotC is really messing up their nomenclature, Linnaeus would roll over in his grave if he saw that a group led by a mathematician thought they knew how to classify creatures. This is just the tip of the iceberg though, they insist on making "shiny" cards. Just like the merfolk, I am not a fish and am not enticed by your shinies. Remember when they made Chris Pikula a woman? Or when Bob Maher became Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg? For god's sake they printed trolls after Thrun. They need to be stopped, we need to secure our borders, and not just any borders, I mean pre-eighth borders.

Wouldn't this be better in a Survival deck?

@Smmenen I actually played a flash Hulk deck months ago and had to play 2 see beyond. I found that playing show and tell + therapy with hiveminds and 4 summoners pact and only one hulk was the way to go so that you could fight the graveyard hate postboard. The deck was pretty strong and if flash and/or brainstorm came off the list it might be a player.

This event will be on the first Saturday of each month unless it conflicts with a large eternal tournament elsewhere, in which case we will change the date.
