      You mentioned this for second time in the podcast - does Dwarf Wizard really do anything against Zombie Magneto? Doesn't ZMag wipe the character before "When fielded" effect happens?

      Yes it does, in fact Dwarf Wizard is blank before fielding it.

      I believe the reference was that it has a Z-Mag like effect on 1 card, not that it would affect Z-Mag himself. But yes, Dwarf would not work on Z-Mag unless you had used spray before you fielded Dwarf.

      Yep-the intent was that it would blank a character in the same way ZMags does for many. Thanks for clarifying it for all though!

      RE: Giant Spider
      Cable also has a force to block global. We've been having fun using him with Beholder as your opponent will almost never spend 2 bolts to use it.

      Would it though? The way it reads, Dwarf Wizard would not remove globals since it only blanks the abilities of dice in the field. The global resides on the card and so would be unaffected similarly to someone using Loki - Loki Laufeyson on a character.

      Which, Isaac infact corrects himself to, in the podcast.

      After playing in my first FUS Draft, I've decided that about half of my personal Top 10 was very, very wrong. Live and learn!

      Referring the aside at the end about never giving up: I almost gave up in a game I was playing against my friend this weekend. He was still at 20, I was down to four, and his fist lantern team was about to finish me off. I rolled my two Beholders in one last ditch effort, but only one came up character, so even with Polymorph shenanigans and Anger Issues globals, I could only hit him for 15. I almost just swung away, since there was almost no way he wouldn't be able to hit me for 4 next turn, but I didn't. He pulled out two Guy Gardners and a Tsarina, but unfortunately for him, after the re-roll he had all characters! So I was safe from Lantern Ring for one more turn, and I was able to get rid of Tsarina before she hit me. Still, the next turn looked just as bleak as before, since my other Beholder was now in my Used with six sidekicks (no PXG this game) and I still had two SKs in the bag. But somehow, I drew it! And rolled it! As his field was empty, I was able to swing for 20.

      So yeah, never give up!
