Thalia, Guardian of Thraben
Scryb Ranger
If you've noticed a pattern, its that Scryb is amazing and
61
1
Elspeth, Knight Errant
1Mother of Runes
you should be getting it more often than you are.
62
1Hexdrinker

63
1Sanctum Prelate
64
1Sword of L and S

I've played against Food Chain like twice this year, I'm 1-1 against it. Not super sure about the boarding
75
1Sanctum Prelate1Batterskull
Scryb Ranger
But this seems like a good starting point regardless. If we find we need more grind to win, add more PWs,
76
1Shifting Ceratops1Collector Ouphe
Questing Beast
If we miss moms/ they're running white for STP, keep them in
77
1Hexdrinker1Gaddock Teeg
