05/16 || Card Games on Locomotives || MTG: Arena || Cap: Not Great at Drafting

So, the hope for this stream was that we would manage to use the gold I'd saved up to play one War of the Spark draft and hopefully make enough gems on that to play another, but yeah that did not work out.

So instead we spent more of the stream playing my standard izzet drakes deck, and finding out my chat is way better at telling what decks I'm up against. Like, turns, several turns before I figure out what I'm even doing.

05/02 || Card Games on Locomotives || War of the Spark Draft

Look, I'm going to be honest, I was not expecting to stream just Arena for almost 5 hours. I really enjoy magic, but I mostly played kitchen table magic with a focus on silly multiplayer formats, aka commander and the like.

Additionally I've been pretty vocal about my dislike of Arena's gem economy and the fact that the break even point for basically every event is usually win 80% of the possible games, and of course that they keep in game currency drafts constantly rotating so I can't play the ones I enjoy. Ok So I've been generally pretty critical about Arena.

But I think that goes to show how damn much I am enjoying War of the Spark Drafting. I freaking bought gems to play it and I don't even regret it. Hell, almost all of this video is the first draft because I kept not actually losing, well save for some really stupid blounders early on.

04/18 || Card Games on Locomotives || Slay the Spire || Cap Also Doesn't Remember How to Play This!

Much Like Dead Cells from the previous day, it's been way too freaking long since I played this game. Heck apparently I never even unlocked the 4th act properly. I spent most of this stream just trying to win with the Ironclad because I was certain they were the only act 4 key I was missing. Mercifully I was right.

There were so many almost good runs this stream, but damn it did I run into a whole bunch of situations where I either didn't draw the cards I needed or just played really poorly.

Slay the Spire is such a dumb and great combination of card games and turn based roguelike madness and if that is your cup of tea, maybe think about getting it over on the Humble store and using our affiliate link to help us out at the same time.

04/04 || Card Games on Locomotives || No Really We Ascend this Time

1. Why did I decide to break these damn things up?! Now I need to write 3 descriptions and try and be at least kind of entertaining in them AH!

But 2. I did manage to finish three games in one stream, so I guess that's super good. In this portion I slammed my head repeatedly against the Enlightenment Victory, which, goodness it turned into a grind. Like I didn't realize just how close and yet so far away I was from the ascension. Like this stream section basically boiled down to eating exactly enough of my own followers to only drop one rank at a time while racing timers to try and create a powerful Lantern Influence card so I could finish the ascension. In retrospect, I really should have just stopped trying to explore and focused on our dumb Hint breeding program and this whole thing could have been done in like a third the time.

If Cutlist Simulator looks like the game for you please consider getting it on Humble and using our affiliate link to help us out in the process, or remember that it is now available on mobile in the Apple App store and the Google Play store.

03/28 || Card Games on Locomotives || Cutlist Sim || Chasing Enlightenment

I don't know why but I thought this was a fresh run, like that I started it this week, but no, looks like we started it last week and I forgot. But the Good news is that we almost finished the run! We probably could have finished it it this go if I played less passively, but I was very determined to make sure we were going to be safe....

Of course I spent most of this stream trying to not be arrested. It was so dumb, I kept clearing all my notoriety and then somehow ending up with two or three as a season of suspicion rolled around. Hell I think I lost like 2 Raw Prophets to evidence destruction, those damn things have the best chance and they failed more than the freaking humans!

If the weirdness of Cultist Simulator looks like your kind of game please consider getting it on Humble and using out affiliate link, it would help us out a bunch.
