Shroom for Two Episode 29: The Remailbaggening

Hello, Heroes!

Welcome to another episode of Shroom for Two! This week, it's a listener mailstravaganza, where we answer a bunch of questions sent in by you!

Shroom for Two Episode 28: Party Hearty

Hello, Heroes! Welcome to another robust episode of Shroom for Two!

This week, Mike continues detailing his enthusiastic climb up the ladder. Then, we discuss Lily of the Valley, who's not as sturdy as they once were, but still a very strong inclusion in most decks. Finally, we do our penultimate Class Warfare, for everybody's favorite bunch of healthy zombies, the Hearty class.

We'll be doing a bunch of listener mail next week. Send your questions, comments, and ideas to shroomfortwopodcast@gmail.com!

No timestamps this week, because Taylor only had time to google synonyms for "hearty" before heading out the door! Try and spot them all!

Shroom for Two Episode 27: The One Where We Sell Out

Hello, Heroes! Welcome to a fun and funny episode of Shroom for Two. This week, we discuss a few of those rumored nerfs/buffs. Mike's 6 copies of Valkyrie are crying as nerfs appear to be coming for most parts of that OTK Valkyrie deck except Valkyrie.

Then, we discuss the card of the week, Spyris. We disagree about how good Spyris is, but we're both of the opinion that it's a good card that you should be playing.

We end the show with Mike discussing his new ladder project! He'll be keeping data about his match wins and opponents, see how his decks put up numbers, and see what the different substrata of the ladder look like!

If you've got feedback for us or our new friends, please send them to shroomfortwopodcast@gmail.com!

Shroom for Two Episode 26: Kabloom Goes the Dynamite

Hello, Heroes!  
  
Welcome to an explosive episode of Shroom for Two that's sure to appeal to red mages everywhere. We celebrate the first day of Spring (and Philadelphia's corresponding blizzard) with a deep dive on the Kabloom class.  
  
First, we revisit SuraF and Justini's power rankings, with an eye towards picking a few nits. Then, we give some reasons why Shamrocket (this week's event card) may be the best one in the entire mix. We follow that up with a piece of listener mail and a ludological breakdown of why "bad cards" exist. We conclude with a Class Warfare segment on one of the most powerful plant classes.  

If you've got any questions, feedback, or suggestions, please post them in the Reddit thread (we're sticky now!) or email us at shroomfortwopodcast@gmail.com

Shroom for Two Episode 25: Paris Hilton's Deathbed VR Puzzle Hunt

Hello, Heroes! Welcome to an episode of Shroom for Two with a title so weird, we forgot to read it!

This week, we ponder the mechanical implementation of Three Nut and why it makes weird things happen. Then, through some listener mail, pondering a collection of decks from metas past, and the implications of releasing a set in two batches. Then, we check out SuraF and Justini's awesome graphics, wherein they ponder the relative power of various event cards. Finally, Mike asks you to ponder which block meter shenanigans generate the most feelbads.

Stick around after the show, where we ponder why Ready Player One looks so lame.

Hello, everybody! Welcome to a lively, rodent-like episode of Shroom for Two!

Shroom for Two Episode 23: Peas to Meet You

Hello, Heroes! Welcome to a wholesome, green episode of Shroom for Two!

This week, we open with a discussion about not playing OTK Valkyrie makes you a cool kid. Don't you want to be cool?

Then, we answer some listener mail from listeners who were cool enough to send their questions in to shroomfortwopodcast@gmail.com. Don't you want us to answer your questions?

Then, we discuss Bonus Track Buckethead, and how that Smash deck from f00gers absolutely destroys every deck Taylor plays on the ladder. Don't you want to beat Taylor on the ladder?

Finally, we talk about peas. All children love peas, as do Green Shadow and her ally Mike. Don't you want to be like them?

Tune in next week, for the return of Class Warfare!

Shroom for Two Episode 22: Double Decker
