After all of the rebalancing everyone has been left guessing what to play. Palp got hit, Palp’s friend got hit(Watto), and hero mill got hit(No Answer).

Let me introduce you to my little friend: Custom Bandoliers. These guys are actually useful, given the right deck. What is this right deck? Mace Satine Built to Last. Yah yah, go ahead, laugh all you want, this deck is actually legit (somehow), and I recently took first place at a 24 person, cut to top 4 (with best of 3s) local MN tournament (shout out to Michael and Bowie who run the Twin Suns Cup tournaments).
