      I love that you're competing with an all shields team (not counting PXG). They are under appreciated. I'm making a shield heavy team that I may take to the WKO near me. Not sure how strong it'll be but I'm excited to try. Maybe I'll post my team here for some advice.

      I think joker will be my answer to the guy rush. Thanks for the pod cast. I was definitely outplayed. 3rd was good for a week of first time hulk cramming before a pdc though. I'm making a dragon team and I think joker is going to work well to answer the guy rush gimmick (yes I call it a gimmick).

      https://wyrmwoodgaming.com/ is a great website for high quality dice trays, dice towers and deck boxes. A little pricey, but super sexy equipment!


      So I'm assuming Jinzo over Wasp for his stats and because he's a shield character....

      Yes, Jinzo is basically an Umber Hulk stats character that I uses as an economic bulldozer. Usually I can get advantages with other tools, but sometimes my opponent rolls level 3 characters, perfect ramp and has a human paladin. Jinzo and wall up.

      Love the team shadowmeld! You've been trumpeting shields since the beginning, so I'm glad you are sticking to it and validating through the PDC. Congrats on the win!

      I noticed you linked his PDC team via dm.retrobox.eu ; however you didn't list his Hulk meta team. Can you please add that to the post?

      The name of that team IS "Hulk Meta." The pun is, that the team uses Umber "Hulk" to counter the prevelant lvl 1 and 2 Hulks that are out there.

      Sorry if that wasn't clear. Also, I blame Isaac for making the joke about a team using Thunderball Ross and Planet Hulk

      That's what it was then.

      I was at work, and couldn't give the podcast full attention. So when he mentioned hulk meta and thunderbolt ross, I was intrigued.

      Glad it caught your attention, but yes this is the Umber variety of Hulk. 😃

      Like the podcast, do like how you guys are keeping everything going. So why this Maria and not the Trained Agent? Keep up the good work.
