You’ve probably heard the term thrown around as an insult, generally describing players who aren’t very good at a game. This isn’t the most useful definition, however. In his book Playing to Win, author David Sirlin describes scrubs as players who create and abide by self-imposed rules that hamstring their ability to be their very best.
Hey guys, I’ve been playing with an updated Crystal Games version of my deck from this post and still enjoying it! CG brought us some neat tools, mostly in Orange (sadly, as I am a Dash player at heart), and some tools that are neat but probably also should not be.
So, revised deck is here, with some notes under the cut!
I don’t know why I gravitate towards bad cards. I think part of it is that I sincerely hope that there is a reason that card exists, like a Zelda treasure chest you can see but never actually get to. So my latest brush with Stockholm syndrome involves not just a card but a mane. Prior to the release of Cadence, this might have been the very worst mane in the game. However, when Crystal Games came out my Cheesy sense began to tingle. Bad Rarity (as we shall call her) drove up in a van, put a hood over my head, and kidnapped me. And now, just like Noted Speaker (we are never, ever, ever getting back together Twilight), I have Stockholm syndrome.
Niko has already done an extensive examination of Crystal Games cards, but he did it from the OCR, which means he neglected a very important part of his discussion: what’s the most hilarious art? What’s the most awkward art? Which art makes you feel sad in your soul?
Worry not. I’m here for you.
Let’s do this thing.
