  4. Ep 84 Community Spotlight:
    1. What is a warm blanket card? 
      1. Pretty much a reactionary card that can save your bacon. These will be at instant speed for the most part.
    2. There’s nothing quite like that feeling when you’re holding one of these cards. Yeah, things can still go wrong for you, and yes counterspells exist, but knowing that you’ve got a plan for whatever comes you way, brings me a warm snuggly type feeling.
    3. These types of cards are one of the big reasons I like playing at instant speed
    4. Running a lot of these cards can bog your deck down, and they aren’t often great in aggro style decks. You want to make sure you don’t go too far overboard with these, because you can be left with a deck that “can’t loose” but doesn’t really have a “plan to win” and some folks don’t enjoy playing against decks like that.
    5. Ways to protect your board, or protect your combo could go here as well.
      1. One of the benefits of cards like this is that you only use them when you need to. 
      2. This is kinda the other side of the boardwipe coin. Basically, most boardwipes, you have to divine your opponent’s intentions, and go ahead and use them if the board is getting a little bit messy, or if you’re in a meta with a bunch of “wild cards”. With these types of cards, you only use them when you’re being attacked. 
      3. If you’re known for playing cards like this, people may less often attack into you when you’ve got open mana. This is pure gravy when you have other things you can do with your mana at instant speed, like say cast a stunt double, or activate Kenrith, the Returned King. Vedalken Orrery is a good card for a reason.
      4. Often times, these cards can catch opponents unaware, and really leave them open for business

  6. Summary - So this is my combo-tastic mana doubling seems totally fun to me. Yes there are a lot of combos, but they all require quite a bit of setup and you can scale the power up or down based on the number of tutors you run by removing some of the combos we talked about and adding other good stuff.
