So much change — Sept. 7, 2012

A lot has changed since the original design of the deck was put up. I hope it can grow, as the deck seems to have potential.

I like this a lot! I cant really say what i would change to improve it without playing it against another deck but i played some hands in the playtest and i liked the approach very much

Thanks rafgarm. I honestly haven't done much with this deck, since it isn't a top priority right now. I sometimes forget it's even here lol
