My Digimon collection is in a pretty good place right now, all considered. Only truly expensive stuff is still uncollected. I think that for future releases, at least in the mid-term, I'm going to hold off on buying them for a bit. Unless I hear about availability shortages or something, I suppose. Joc and I are investigating the possibility of getting a house (!) so I'll be saving any collection expansion until after we've figured out what the deal is there.

I did retire MaloMyotismon and build a Blue Flare deck. Hopefully soon Joc'll be through with her more pressing work and we can have some hobby nights. Really want to play some Digimon soon.

Got BT10 in last weekend, pretty happy with the results. The set is blessedly pretty cheap compared to BT9, in terms of singles. Didn't even break $90 on the slush-buy, and that with accidentally overbuying the MetalGreymon this set. A lot of expensive promos have dropped in price, too - Sunarizamon under $10! - but I'm holding off for now.

Deck updates will be nice, particularly for the Sakuyamon Plug-In deck. Also have touch-ups for Bugs and Cyborgs. As for new decks, I like the look of Blue Flare and Bagra Army, but for now I'm just building out Canoweissmon. Gonna add Kimeramon and one of the early WarGreymons - probably BT1 since it protects from Options. My brother might build out a proper RagnaLoardmon deck, too, which looks fun.

EX3 is hitting next month. Love me some dragons, and there's a great piece for Cyborgs.

We played Dinogenics this weekend when that brother visited, and let me tell you I had a lot of fun. I was afraid it had too much going on but it played really well. Hoping to hit a higher player count at Thanksgiving.

Bought some Mage Wars this weekend for real cheap, so I've decided to fill out the core 4 for both Arena and Academy. Working out what I ought to consider a "complete" collection has been fun, it'll be easier with the cards layed out in front of me. Going for a "complete experience" as opposed to "complete collection" thing here, if that makes sense. Never played much of it before but I love tactical and card games, pretty hard to say "no" to mixing that peanut butter with this chocolate. I may branch out to add the Druid vs Necromancer stuff, but that strongly depends on the final collection layout I settle on - if I need doubles, those get too costly very quickly, even at the steep discounts I'm finding online.

I ordered a Berserk Fury Zoid earlier this year, and it finally shipped, two months later than it really ought to have. That'll be a fun build, eventually. I really ought to plan out a couple nights on biweekly schedules so I touch my various hobby projects and play my verious games reasonably often. Hopefully as the boys get older actually pulling that off gets easier.

Got BT9 opened last night and made my customary finishing order. No SECs and I didn't buy any - they're sitting at ~$30 each, so that's what, $250 for eight cards? No thanks. I did finish out the promo Gammamons and Hiros, though, in anticipation of getting BT10 and building Canoweissmon.

What I'm really disappointed about price-wise is the promo Okuwamon from the Update Pack included with each box. That's running $25 and it'd be perfect for my Insectoids deck, but I just cannot justify that price point.

I'm bringing alt-arts with me this Thursday to try and trade for some EX2 AAs for Joc's Renamon deck, maybe someone'll have Okuwamons for trade.

This set has pieces for Shoutmon Blitz, Armor, Garurumon, Cats & Angels, Insects, Alphamon, and Machinedramon. Gonna take a look at each later, see if I can't expand them out. I am missing some of the pieces I'd want to use, but it's a start. I also really like Gaiomon, might try and slap together a BlackWarGreymon deck.

I've tweaked most of my decks, and made several completely brand-new ones, so over the course of the next few days I'll be posting deck techs for each of them. The only one that's unchanged from the version currently on this site is Eosmon Yellow. I do have some thoughts on that one, below, but nothing I've committed to. I've also got some prognosticatory deck ideas fot BT9 and BT10.

Got our BT8 preorder in today, and it was a decent pull. Also got the starters plus the entire rest of the set ordered. I considered getting some other expensive cards that have fallen in price, but I think I'm gonna have to hold on those a bit longer - we're still talking $10-20 cards in playsets. Hopefully their prices will continue downward; maybe rotation will finally hit and some of these will be affordable.

Gotta think about what needs updating. I think this is the shortlist;

There are a couple other neat bits or buildarounds that might be worth investigating, and Veemon Armor looks like it could be fun. Several of the Veemons are tied up in Blue/Green Imperialdramon though.

Next set on the horizon is EX2, which we have to get because it's Tamers themed. After that I'm mildly interested in BT9 - X-Antibody plus the remaining Armor digivolves that didn't fit here. I might have to be much more conservative post-EX2, though, if only because childcare eats up so much of our budget. Hopefully my wife will be moving up the ladder at her job, and it sure would be nice for me to get a cost-of-living raise…

In other news, lots of Jurassic Park things happening. Dr. Sattler vs. T Rex finally shipped, and there've been reports of copies of the JWMG in the wild, in Europe at least. Hopefully that'll come here soon too. That'll be fun to review, but I'd like to trick it out with some tokens and sleeves, and I already covered finances.

I'm hoping we hear more about MonPoc soon too.

I spent last night making a few more decks - Red Shoutmon Blitz, Blue Omnimon, Green Insectoids, Black Cyborg Blockers, and Purple Trash. I'll work on deck techs for these soon. I'm still looking forward to a black Ouryamon buld, but that's gotta wait until mid-May, probably.

I spent some time updating my decks, in light of BT6, EX1, and some of the promos I've gotten. I haven't had a chance to test these (or Eosmon) yet; I hope to be able to soon. As a reminder, most of these decks already saw some modifications from their original listings.

We got some new artwork from Jack Clark, so I ordered some more playmats. This time we included overlays for the card game - two with custom work, and two with the standard options Inked provides.

Aquilamon and Repamon Plesiomon and ExVeemon

The Aquilamon and Repamon ones are for me and my wife, respectively. The other two are for some friends of ours. I did notice a few minor graphical mistakes I made in preparing the ones for my wife and me - the "Player 2" banner has a vertical line in the former and an extra shadow on the latter. I may order a fixed replacement for mine in the future if I make another order from Inked - I have some discounts that could help to offset it - but it's subtle enough that I can ignore it otherwise.

I also got some custom dashboards for Godtear that I designed, but those need to be cut out yet.
