      As a slightly embarrassed note - at one point on this podcast I exclaim, "Why did you mention that on the podcast?!"

      It's not because I think we should be keeping builds secret for our own tournament use or something -- it's because a) that combo is Apologies in Advance all over again, except now you get to use their characters against them and I don't want to play against that team lol, and b) I kinda forgot this starter doesn't come out until after Origins.

      Seriously though, I haven't been this excited over a starter in a long time. It's really good.

      Excited to draft tomorrow, but I feel like I am going to pick up that first stack and despite all of the reading/podcast listening to prep for the draft, I am going to freeze haha! The only drafts I've done were with Issac's store and Pyro was probably my MVP for the first. I am going to be really tempted to go the Firefly route if he is in that first stack.

      Haha! Luckily didn't draft in Toledo this time. I heard that @IssacBV won. Ended up getting the rare firefly and a bunch of cheap Bolt characters, like rare Nightwing. Had common 2 cost Batarang and common Huntress as well. Both of those proved EXTREMELY useful against rare Harley Quinn! Never seemed to be able to get the combo off though.

      The common firefly seems to work the best in draft, but I am intrigued about the rare firefly and superwoman global in constructed.

      Congrats on your win isaac. Also good job to aaron. He beat me pretty easily the first match top 8 with delayed blast fireball against my weak characters. I Almost took the second match. Had darkseid out to block after dbf, but harley quinn wouldn't roll on a critical turn and he overran me. Lots of fun.
