Thanx for the feedback. I could see why the Cherry/Widow swap, but I
myself wouldn't do it as I'm fussy about the elven theme. ;o)

I plan two make and test two adjustments over the original formula,
and hopefully playtest the deck this Saturday. (You available for our
usual 2:30 start time Tony?)

I'm thinking of swapping Chomps out for a Fusion gate. (I like the
directed damage and the tech-2 can be a tough sleaze. However, Chomps
is a good "Go Home) thus the play test.)

I'm also trading for a third Initiation. (The deck hinges on the
Ancients, so I'd like 3 of the main Objectives to be ganger makers.)

Other then that, I'm really happy with how the deck stands. If and
when you get the Nerps and other Initiation(s) let me know how the
original recipe works for you.
