Duncan and I haven't done a video this week because of REASONS so, in lieu of audio-visual content, here is the script that we would have shot if we had done a video (or if these things were rigorously scripted in the first place).
DuncanHi Dan!DanHi Duncan!DuncanTell us about some of the cards we've got coming out this week!
DuncanOkay, please tell us about some of the cards we've got coming out this week.
DanOn Wednesday we've got four new Unruly Rulers cards - Louis XIV, Elizabeth I, Paul I of Russia and the not-numbered Oliver Cromwell.
DuncanWow, what a magical menagerie of meticulously manicured monarchs!
DanCuriously well said... although I have to bring you up on calling them "Monarchs" because, famously, Oliver Cromwell didn't consider himself a monarch. It's partly why the collection is no longer called Mad Monarchs - that, and the problematic connotations of that name. Good move away from it, I think.
DuncanIndeed. Tell me about Elizabeth I.
DanWell, as you'll know if you've read the back of the Mary Queen of Scots card, they hated each other. Elizabeth's ability requires you to have Mary in your deck, but don't play them together because they'll give each other a massive debuff! Or maybe you could try playing them together...
DuncanSound like you're dropping a subtle hint there Dan...
DanYeah, but it's really hard to be subtle in writing. I might as well have just written out "why don't you try playing Elizabeth I and Mary Queen of Scots together and see what happens?"
DuncanIt's a good thing the only way this'll be consumed is as video content then.
DanLook out for tomorrow's Warty Crab card - it requires Oliver Cromwell to trigger it's ability. There's also Booster Bundle out later - a bunch of gems for a great price, as usual.
DuncanDon't mess with a classic, eh?
DanThat's what I say about Cheesy Doodles and Family Guy shirts!
DuncanIs that all?
DanYeah, I'm done. I know we normally talk about the stuff coming out on Thursday, Friday and Saturday but, even in your current narrative device form, you know this is a news story and it's only about today. In fact, as a narrative device, I can make you say whatever I like.
DanWhat am I like?SFX: Slide whistleNormal video service will be resumed next week, reading-dislikers!
