Playing Making News in core set only tournaments made me really enjoy the identity. Getting two credits when you don't expect is endearing for reasons only William Forrester can explain.
I've really really wanted to play it outside of the core set context, but outside of Door to Door Making News, I hadn't really figured out a good excuse to play it. It's certainly pretty hard to justify next to Azmari EdTech: Shaping the Future where the gifts are unexpected but a little more reliable. I don't really think I justified it here, but here is my flimsy reasoning:
My biggest regret is that @osclate talked me out of playing Hunter just because I have no tag punishment, which is a really delightful card in Making News.
I played this at the New York Store Champ and went 2 and 2, but the real important results are here:
Round 1: 5 brain damage
Round 2: 6 brain damage
Round 3: 0 brain damage
Round 4: 4 brain damage
Total: 15 brain damage
Mwanza and Brainstorm are a match made in heaven because Ganked! is really funny and also you have to pay for stupid Brainstorms somehow. Everything else in the deck is based on a pretty rickety premise, tbh.
The deck is called Farm to Table because it is more wholesome than Door to Door.
