    With the Doug Jones win in Alabama there is now a 51-49 split in the senate. Meaning now only 2 republicans dissenting will prevent Senate approval. The stupidest part of this is that the FCC chair claims that this is a victory for the bipartisan way of business, yet the 5 person committee vote was 3 republicans for, 2 democrats against.

    Same. It's been a ton of fun and I think the deck has some good potential. I know I'll be playing it again next week and probably for awhile until I find some glaring weakness with it. For now, like I said, my biggest worry is a hyper aggressive physical beats deck like Broly.

    That, is absolutely fantastic xD That makes SO MANY MORE COMBOS viable in so many decks. Thanks for sharing the ruling. I think I will tech in Severing Punch at 2 tbh. I'll take it down to 1 if I find I don't need it too much with some testing, but working with the same rule as with Outburst, better to not need it, and have it, then need it and not have it. Plus, the ability to shutdown competing Dig/Unleashed decks isn't a bad thing by any means. With that, I think I'm actually going to take out Rapid Fire for now. Hopefully I don't come to regret it come Broly time xD At this point, I think we might have changed the deck as much as we can without some more extensive testing. I will comment that I've really enjoyed working on this, and am definitely eager to hear about how it goes on your end (and will try to keep you updated as and if I make any changes from here on out).

    For me last night, getting their discard pile full wasn't a problem, so Strength test was always doing something, but I also didn't have near the level jumping that the new build has. You have a good point with it. I'll keep it in my build for now, but it'll be a possible future cut. Severing punch for me has been a pretty consistent card. So like you said, it might be a meta call. For me, it shuts down black anger decks and orange anger decks (Which mostly use +2 anger cards), while slowing down Red anger decks to some degree plus the hit effect makes it a "must block" card against level jumping decks. This might be to you what Saiyan Destructive Blast is to me. At the very least, I would run a 1 of. Originally I was going to cut Saiyan Power Up from your build as well, however with the switch over to more energy focus I'm worried how we will hold up to an aggressive stage deck. Will the level hopping stages be enough to keep up pressure? Right now I'm not sure, so I left it in. If it turns out that it's not needed, then I will certainly be cutting it (Probably for Rapid fire, or something similar). the card is certainly on the list of possible future cuts alongside strength test. Will require more testing to know for sure though. I LOVE that Cell level 3 doesn't need to hit. I mean, you want to block it anyways just for the 7 life unpreventable. But yeah, it's fantastic that we can almost always get the banish/level effect off. As for the reveal when teching the card. I am like 80% sure it was ruled that the reveal when searching counted. I will double check though, I don't want you to get screwed over on a ruling because I remembered something incorrectly.

    So to report, I got extremely lucky. In all the games I played, opening combat all started with a cell's draining attack or unleashed. The most notable game was against the new piccolo stack using the new mastery (namekian). I got to 4, and kept tutoring out Saiyan domination all game. I knew he was an unleashed build, it's namekian so hybrid defense is a thing, shutting down time, confrontation, and other shenanigans as well. Royally bent him over. He got off level 1 once... only for me to crit ball 2 away and drop him back to 1 in the following action. I think if we merge your new beats build with my more toolbox oriented deck we might actually have quite a beast on our hands. I didn't get to play against any future gohans, but I honestly think I am the only person in my play group that has a deck built up for him right now but I could see him being a problem now as well if it's a variant that gets to level 2/3 before I get to 4. I did forget to mention it earlier. While building this cell, another build came to mind. One focused on stage locking the opponent. It's kind of a mix of my former Raditz deck and a Cell Jr deck I built when oppressive was first announced. Same concept as now, you want to push off of 2 as fast as possible, though with this deck you want to get to 4 asap. Once at 4, you focus on rejuvination while stage locking. Run the drill that forces your opponents first attack to cost +1 stage, the new Saiyan Drill to make everyones PUR 1, Saiyan Emergence (Your preferred fetch card when entering combat at level 4) and the Saiyan card that reduces all opposing personalities 3 stages, gives an anger and then shuffles back into the deck. Plus running triple menace, triple Ki Blast, triple tantrum, rescue, the newer saiyan card that on hit rejuvinates a styled card etc and then Saiyan Overpowering Aura drill for consistent anger control while you are rejuvinating. If these other builds fail, I may have to look back into this one, unless someone is looking for obscure cell ideas and wants to give it a go.

    The inconvenient truth is that public opinion is going to have little weight in the current climate. Moreso than ever our government is steeped in support for business and profit moreso than common voters. This is not a call to give up or not take action, just a call for everyone to accept this truth going forward. Petitions like the ones attached won't have any effect. Petitions have become one of the least effective methods of change. Unless you have a directive from the group that you are trying to change (i.e. they say "get me X signatures and we'll talk") nothing will come from your petition. Especially if you are targeting someone specifically in your petition name ("Save the Internet from Trump"? really? How does this do anything but give him an excuse to go on the defensive? If you act combative against someone like Trump, he will shut down and refuse to work with you. That's just a fact.) Call your representatives, go to Town Halls (if your reps bother to have them), DO SOMETHING. Don't just type your name into an internet data box and figure "my job's done". that's lazy activism and it gets nothing done. Go out in 2018 and vote OUT the people that are selling us away to the corporations. Things are going to get worse as long as we don't work to make sure they get better. Alabama was a spark, it needs to turn into a fire.
