[Fedoras of Salvation] - White Knights ITT

That's definitely a solid approach to take. I personally like to see my opponent as the puzzle. Looking at everything from the way they shuffle, the dice they use, the shirt they are wearing, their demanor etc. as clues. Then I just play a role that I think will put them the most on edge and most li...

the two damage can kill a jace for free or an elspeth that just wiped your stormbreath, I'd argue that it does matter.

And I'd be really, really surprised if anyone actually hit two needles with it

Shocking an elvish mystic then playing a spike jester is pretty big game, so its not "just" for small aggro,

Its also mana efficiency for YP$, shocking to return a phoenix and immediately swing with it, etc.
