Episode 25— December 14th, 2020

The Making of the Degenerate Micro Cube

Our hosts are finally ready to share the Degenerate Micro Cube with the world. This episode is a deep dive on what this cube is all about, why Andy loves it so much, and why it’s just not Anthony’s cup of tea. They do a pack 1, pick 1 from the Degenerate Micro Cube, and discuss how it came to be, why storm is always a trap, the value that secret information plays in game design, how speed is inextricably linked with variance, whether a less enfranchised player could figure out Stage Depths combo if left to their own devices, and Anthony shamefully concedes that it is actually fun to Tinker out a Blightsteel Colossus on turn 1.

Discussed on this episode:
