Friday Night Alchemy: Hiding Behind Pillows and Stuffing

Friday Night Alchemy: Hiding Behind Pillows and Stuffing

I didn’t come up with this week’s list. Travis Woo did. If you like the wacky, the different, and the fun, check out his articles and stream on Twitch. He came up with this deck and deemed it “Pillow Fort,” and I stole it. I did. I’m pretty over it. Continue reading Friday Night Alchemy: Hiding Behind Pillows and Stuffing

I don’t know how to tell you this, so I guess I’ll just put it out there.

I was chewed up and spit out this last Friday. Pretty badly. There wasn’t too much of a learning experience to be had from it, unfortunately. I’ll cover the tournament, but it won’t be like usual times. Instead, I’d like to focus on something else. Continue reading Budget Brewing: Friday Night Fun Part 4 of 5, How to Win and How to Lose
