Get ready to peek inside the box of our newest Unboxing video for Heavy Hitters! The puppy joins me for the pic, but unfortunately his agent wouldn’t allow him to participate in the recording due to other contractual obligations. Or as she likes to call it “time for walkies!” Video goes live Thursday 6am on our BoardGame Coffee YouTube channel :)
Canterbury project- Pt 1
progress shots of the Canterbury job completed last year.
Scope of works included framing in sub floor, install 140mm spotted gum decking , stairs / handrail and stainless steel balustrade.
Throwback to many years ago when @mike_guertin and I were oh-so-happy to be building a deck in the freezing cold. Actually, Mike probably didn’t care. I was cold, though. Come to think of it, I don’t remember ever working with Mike, either in front of the camera or behind the camera, when it wasn’t bone numbingly cold...and that’s factoring in a LOT of projects together! (By the way, this build was filmed as a multipart series. You can find it on finehomebuilding.com if interested.) #tbt#finehomebuilding#keepcraftalive#decks#building#deckbuilding#diy

I had been sitting on this standard #decklist for a while now and finally last week, with Dominaria right around the corner, i was like:
“if I don’t bring it out today, i may never do it!”
So i did, and here it is: Freejam Fling.
At first glance, it may seem to be exactly a Fling-a-tog style deck. And it is!.. but with a little more depth. There are different lines of attack.
P2: Dragon Plan.
Any Implement + any Servo Machine can mean mean T3 Fire-breathing Dragon. When you drop a big threat early, it’s nice that it’s immune to opposing Glorybringers.
P3: Gremlins plan.
Without any other Artifacts, Ravenous Intruder and Salivating Gremlins backed by Schematic OR Puzzleknot represents 13-15 power as early as Turn 4. Swinging in Balls to the Walls at that point usually isn’t the right choice...
P4: but it can be if you’ve got it backed up with a Fling! Or can protect a gremlin with a Key to the City... or sometimes other circumstances.
P5: this seems cute in comparison, but Ravenous Intruder and Lannery Storm get along great. She doesn’t care why you’re sac’ing treasure, she still gets all fired up anyway!
P6: a couple random utility pieces as 1 off’s.
P7: do these need any justification?
The deck had a reasonable level of success: 2-1 with both wins against Mono Red.
