So…yeah. In case you couldn’t tell, this is the Story Circle list from Episode 243. If you haven’t listened to it yet, you probably should. We got Tom, formerly of the MTG Radio podcast, to join us for this one. He’s on Twitter, oddly enough, as @MTGRadio. MTG Radio is also the reason Chewie started playing EDH in the first place, so much love to those guys.
Our randomly-chosen general today, as you can probably tell from the big-ass picture directly to the right, is Cromat. First off, there’s a problem with Cromat. The problem with Cromat is that he’s five colors and does nothing terribly specific. He’s just wide open. Sure he has five abilities, but none of those abilities really DO anything that you’d want to build around. When it comes to doing a Story Circle with nothing but a general to go off of, that’s a very big problem.
Luckily, we had Tom around to point out that Cromat does have one thing going for him. He’s got FIVE ABILITIES! Whatever are we going to do with all those ABILITIES? Gee, I don’t know, how about some stuff that deals with ABILITIES! Oh, just go ahead and check out the list. Warning: This deck ended up all over the place. The order we started with lasts until the final group, where Mike and Brian had to switch it up because Brian’s brain sorta hung up for a minute.
