The MetaPod – XY: BREAKthrough set review w/ WanderingVenser

Hello Nurglings!

Welcome to the first official blog post where I announce the fact that our “Pokémon talk” recordings shall now be called:

The Metapod Log

I’m aware that this recording is VEEERY long, but we talked about every single card and we may have spent a bit to much talking about the early bad cards just to rush through them towards the end.

BUT, still had a great and fun time reviewing this card for card, and I hope you will enjoy it as well.

Thanks for watching/listening!

Pokémon TCG deck – Dugtrio / Eeveelutions [Standard]

Hello Nurglings!

Main Pokémon: Dugtrio / Eeveelutions
Deck Name: DiggiDiggi
Format: Standard 2015 – 2016





4 Diglett 4 VS Seeker 4 Fighting Energy
4 Dugtrio 4 Fighting Stadium 4 Strong Energy
4 Hawlucha 3 Muscle Band
4 Eevee 3 Professor Sycamore
2 Jolteon 2 Level Ball
2 Flareon 2 Switch
1 Vaporeon 2 Ultra Ball
2 Shaymin EX 2 Korrina
2 Lysandre
1 Shauna
1 AZ
1 Ace Trainer
1 Professor’s Letter
1 Battle Compressor

Hints / Things to think about

  • Depending on the Matchup only focus on getting the correct Eeveeltution in to play, the rest can be discarded to Ultra Balls or even cleared from the deck with Battle Compressor. They are there as a combat enhancer, not attackers
  • After that first Ultra Ball / Korrina / Level Ball always make sure to check how many Digletts and Dugtrios you have in your deck. As Dugtrio is your main attacker.
  • The overall strategy is very straight forward in this deck, put out your Dugtrios and attack, focus on getting that damage out fast and try to get as many prices as possible with your knockouts.

Pokémon TCG Online – Talking About Anicent Origins w/ ReclusiveSlowbro & WanderingVenser

Hello everybody!

Just uploaded a YouTube vid for the first time in ages! Well, it was recorded live on stream but still a video. It’s Me, WanderingVenser and ReclusiveSlowbro (two other great Pokemon TCG Online streamers) that talk about the latest Pokemon TCG set!

Sadly Twitch decided to mute some of the audio but it’s only about 10 minutes out of 2 long hours. So still plenty of cool things to listen in on.

You can find us all on

Boardgames with Nurgleprobe #10 – TOP 5 Games for new players (PODCAST)

Time for another TOP 5 list. This time I’m talking about 5 games that I think you should use to introduce new players to the hobby. So they’re not for groups made completley out of new players, but for a mix.

Hope you enjoy the list, and I will see you next week with another review!


Until next time, take care.
Cya soon!

What is topdecking? EXPLAINED

Hello everyone and welcome to a new series of YouTube series of videos that I’m working on, I will release a new one ever so often. Gonna try to do atleast 3-4 videos a month… covering different gaming terms! Explaining them, giving some backstory, showing of some moments with this happening (if all of these things are possible to talk about and/or show of course).

The first one is about topdecking, and as always the video itself will be better with time. As I get a better camera, or … a camera. And work my way around how I want the video edited and so on. Thanks for reading and watching.

Until next time, take care.
Cya soon!

MTG / MTGO – 5$ EDH deck – Alesha Utility

Hello everyone!

Time to share my latest 5$ EDH deck here on the blog as well! It’s a 3 color deck that is mostly made to play in 1v1 matches and beware that this cost is for MTG ONLINE and not the paper game. So if you’re interested to get in to EDH online this is one deck you could start with.


Until next time, take care.
Cya soon!

MTG – Modern Deck – Land Maze

Hello Nurglings!

It’s time again for another one of my… weird… ass… Modern decks! And I have not even tried it yet! So I give you all the pleasure of doing so for me. I’m that nice. Yes. So what’s so special about this deck? Well first of all we’re using a win condition that is not very… played at the moment in any format… or probably ever will be.

Dragon's Maze Spoiler - Promo - Maze's End

Yup. The Maze!

So let’s start with the other spells for once. Summer Bloom and Treasure Hunt (Seen below) are the only two non-land cards we’re playing in this list. And it’s simply because Treasure Hunt is giving us one insane amount of value and Summer Bloom will follow that up nicely with letting you play more lands immediately. I was thinking of adding a third spell in the form anything with Cascade. So that you would dig through a few of the spells more efficiently.

But hey, this will be interesting!

MTG - the only spells

Other spells: 8
4x Summer Bloom
4x Treasure Hunt

And here comes the lands…

Deck - Land Maze

Lands: 52
4x Desert
4x Tolaria West
4x Quicksand
4x Horizon Canopy
4x Temple of Mystery
3x Tectonic Edge
3x Maze’s End
2x Simic Guildgate
2x Izzet Guildgate
2x Azorius Guildgate
2x Boros Guildgate
2x Dimir Guildgate
2x Golgari Guildgate
2x Gruul Guildgate
2x Rakdos Guildgate
2x Orzhov Guildgate
2x Selesnya Guildgate
2x Reliquary Tower
1x Mystifying Maze
1x Bojuka Bog
1x Prahv, Spires of Order
1x Desolate Lighthouse

Seriously, you don’t want me to talk about all of em do you?

We have the Maze’s End that will help us win and thin out the deck from gates.

We have Desert, Quick Sand, Mystifing Maze, Prahv, Spires of Order to help us protect ourselves against evil creatures.

We have Horizon Canopy, Tolaria West, Desolate Lightous and Temple of Mystery to help us get a bit deeper and find the best cads.

We have gates… oh the gates.

We have Reliquary Tower that will help us keep the value given to us by Treasure Hunt.

We have one single Bojuka Bog and a few copies of Tectonic Edge cause… Well we may just need that!

Hope you enjoy this deck everyone!

Until next time, take care.
Cya soon!
