      I was one of those 4 at Sherwood. It does seem like the mid-south needs some more players. There are about 6 of us in Memphis that play, but not all play regularly

      Thanks for the positivity Isaac! Sorry about wrecking your face, but I think you recovered quickly and nicely!

      I love these pod casts. I look forward to them every week....but I have to ask. I keep hearing about this Batman team and I have to be blind because I can't find a team list. My GF's son loves the Bat and would be thrilled to play a team based around him. Can anyone point me in the direction on how this team is put together?

      Key components are Alfred, Bruce Wayne (uncommon or rare), and the player's preference of Batman (Natural Leader and Bruce Wayne of Earth are popular choices). Have a way to KO Alfred and then shenanigans ensue.

      Comic Cellar in Memphis was trying to get a community going. Hall of Heroes in Ripley does things on occasion. Collector's Connection in Dyersburg is my FLGS and we do OPs every Saturday and casual play on Mondays. I know D'burg is a bit of a drive though.

      For the Podcast:

      Fantastic episode! I love hearing how diverse all the localized metas are.

      My opinion on Beholder vs Oracle/Jinzo. They are adding to the cost of the Global and Beholder makes them free. Free is free. I don't use the Cerebro ruling for comparison because Cerebro is a special instance, being that it's an Action Die that needs to be used. I totally understand the other side though, but I really do feel that Free is Free. I have asked several questions on WORF - they never get chosen.

      And Vicious Narwhal.. lol!
      Vicious Narwhal is a play on Vicious Struggle, because that's what he used against me. :P I want to get a Vicious Struggle card and have someone alt art it with a picture like this one on it. (I found this angry Narwhal on Google)

      Congrats to all the winners this past weekend, all those that placed in Top 8, and also thank you to all those that attended and volunteered at every WKO2. Hope everyone had a great experience and I look forward to seeing new folks and old friends at Origins!

      Comic Cellar is my local store, right now my friend and I are the only 2 that go to events consistently. We've got four others that play, but as we're all middle age fathers it can be hard to be there at 5pm on a saturday

      I totally get that. Maybe, if there is a better night for all of you, see if they'll host that night instead.

      Great Show as usual.

      Just wanted to note that in the show it was brought up to use Songbird: Sonic Constructs "When Songbird blocks, you may pay 1 shield to remove Songbird from the Attack Zone." to stop Overcrush. This would not work via the Ruling here: http://win.wizkids.com/bb/viewtopic....5543ae2#p18377

      Yeah, the Uncommon Songbird that takes no damage will stop Overcrush. The common won't (and will actually make it worse).

      Check out ccm00007's Blog, I zeroed in on the combo from him running it at a WKO.

      I ran this version at the WKO in Tuscon. I added Rarecrow, he bring so many shenanigans and turns your opponent's Bard into your win condition. I also switched in Babs, this left me with no 3 cost but it worked out. I never bought Vigilante Justice probably should have taken Dark Avenger, but I made top 4 so that was cool.
