or just running across and braining your opponent every turn, he is definitely not to be overlooked. Overall this is just another fun multiplayer deck, but it holds a special place in my heart since it (or the beginnings of it) was my very first deck when I started playing all the way back in 1994.

Until next time, have fun and play multiplayer.
