, or b)special conditions for it to work. Mine is the latter, with the exception of the Chrome and Diamond Moxes, but those are much cheaper than their Alpha cousins.

So, for the deck to work, you need:
1. Be playing in a 27-Player game. Yes, I know, it’s hard to get 27 players, but if you can, you get a first-turn win!
2. You can’t go first. This really means you need to draw a card. Of course, with 26 other guys, you probably don’t have to worry.
3. Play 2 games. The first game is just to set up the combo, and the second is where you actually use it.
