Odes of the day:

Mountebank
by seanahan

Mountebank Mountebank
Games with it really stank
So much junk decks would tank
Then you would dud

Mountebank Mountebank
Engines? Completely jank!
Donald said walk the plank
He is our bud

Mountebank Mountebank
All of its memes were dank
Skipping it? Let’s be frank
You will get killed

Mountebank Mountebank
Games with it truly stank
Donald X we should thank
Now let us build

Mountebank
by JNails

Monte made a living off a rank protection racket
Offering elixir for a respite from attack, yet
Utterly annihilating any found to lack it
None could run a working engine; all who tried were lost
Those who sought to prosper had to pay his cursed cost
Even so he might drop in again after it’s tossed

Buried by his flood of copper, one too many drowned
Adding to his status as the baddest man around
Now the feds have intervened and shut the whole thing down
Keep a lookout anyway, a charlatan’s in town

Ode of the day:

Trade Route
by Sharur

I don’t know if it’s Root or Rout,
But certainly this is true:
Since trashing’s good, without a doubt,
This Action card must be too.

Moreover, it does something that
Not many more cards can claim:
You’ll see its power level rise
Throughout a Dominion game.

And now that Rout - or Root - is gone,
In case you are asking, why?
It must be that it was too strong,
So sadly, it had to die.

Ode of the day:

Embassy
by JNails

You gave high fives but then went “Not so fast!
Deceptively, I’m no more draw than Vault”
It’s come to pass, the joke’s on you at last
Some say it’s that old Baba Yaga’s fault

The kingdom’s renovating with the times
Yes, even way out in the hinterlands
With fewer duds they’re no longer inclined
T’ward terminally sifting through bad hands

Thematically ambassadorial
With Silvers as the treasure passed about
We gather here in grim memorial
To mourn a card that came then went back out

I bid adieu, majestic Embassy
Sincerely signed, one who remembers ye.

Ode of the day:

Venture
by saltroza

At times, when once I looked upon a board
Whose drawlessness foretold a sorry game
And wondered how I'd manage to afford
The provinces my heart would seek to claim,
I'd scan the kingdom yet, until my eye
Fell wearily upon a yellow gleam
More typically ignored, and with a sigh,
I'd undertake a speculative scheme
To chain my way through shuffles, on a trek
Past endless junk, through treasures uncontrolled,
Haphazardly discarding bits of deck,
To end the quest, perhaps, by striking gold —
And glad I was that still some hope remained
When, truly, nothing Ventured, nothing gained.

Ode of the day:

Embargo
by JNails

You sparked a great fire inside of my soul
Those tactical tokens I sought and revered
But others could not see your critical role
The vanishing Silver's once more disappeared

My heart's palpitations have started to slow
No fancy Duration could block my lament
And so as they lifted the last Embargo
So out from within me the last ember went

Ode of the day:

Loan
by Sharur

There once was a card made for thinning
That, confusingly, didn’t cause winning
Many times, its reveals
Led to furious squeals
And it felt like your wheels were just spinning

With his gaze on a crystalline ball
Donald X made a radical call
New Prosperity’s great
You can trash that Estate
Loan forgiveness is slated for all

Ode of the day:

Cache
by JNails

Cache can’t curse or dole out spiced up tokens
Merely gains on-gain that make one wince
So it fell as new cards were awoken
Death knell dealt to copper strategists

While it was the furthest thing from broken
No one save its strongest malcontents
Would allege that it was too soft-spoken
If naught else, it gave you its two cents

Ode of the day:

Noble Brigand
by saltroza

Your deck is close to golden — frig! and
Yet I do not give a fig, and
Plan to play it bold and big and
As you zag, instead I’ll zig, and
Profit from your clunky rig and
Through your precious cards I’ll dig, and
Swipe your silver, dance a jig, and
From the victory cup I’ll swig, and
Toast my saviour, Noble Brigand!

Ode of the day:

Goons
by Sharur
(To the tune of Beans, Beans)

Goons, Goons, a magical card!
The more you have, the more it's hard
To keep your scoring under control.
As payload, it fills every role!

Goons, Goons, departed too soon.
Collection’s strength is more in tune.
It had to be? I cannot agree.
Oh Goons, my heart yet mourns for thee!

Ode of the day:

Pirate Ship
by seanhan

The pirate ship sailed out from port
To plunder natives in their village
The islands offered cache in spades
With treasures ripe to trash and pillage

Could magic make this ship retire?
For years it lurched but never sank
Could second coming seaside be
What made it walk the fateful plank?

And now we see its voyage end:
The centre failed, the beast was rough,
Its flag was lowered one last time
In tribute to the dragon Puff
