• The Prep Area Podcast 06: Taste the Rainbow

    Welcome to Episode Six of the Prep Area! Hosts RJ (RJRETRO) and Patrick (Shadowmeld) are back to celebrate a certain person's birthday with a focus on their favourite type of birthday cake: confetti cake! Get ready to taste the rainbow with two teams this week focusing on Prismatic Spray -- the uncommon and rare versions!

    2015 Canadian Dice Masters National Champion jthomash2 joins us to talk about his first-ever Little Cup team that focuses very heavily on sidekicks. Not to mention, regular TPA contributor Necromanticer gives Shadowmeld a gift by using his "Off the Meta" segment to showcase one of Shadow's favourite comic book characters ever: Nightcrawler!

      Great podcast. Nightcrawler is probably my favorite x-men. I will be putting him in play now!
      That actions team sounds really fun too.

      My little cup team dominated RJ... But be aware, it's really susceptible to aoe and direct damage.

      Loved the @Necromanticer segment this week. Top notch, dude.

      I know the count is like a Nolan batman variant but all I hear is the rock biter from neverending story. Great cast guys keep them coming! http://youtu.be/CrG-lsrXKRM

      Would live to see a Bifrost Beatdown style team with AoU that would work for draft OPs.

      It is quite possible in Draft, if you can get 2 7 costs purchased.

      Perhaps you could put a Frost Giant and a Loki in the Bifrost Beatdown team?

      Will do, I took a variant on the sidekicks team, I really wanted to put Dr. Doom on but since we weren't doing little cup I didn't think it would work. Ended up facing an Apologies in Advance variant... Clearly I had to change things up, managed to grab one of his imprisoned die which helped me get a big unblocked hit and then PXGed into Cap, Coulson and 3 sidekicks in one roll for lethal. Neither of us could believe it!
