From: Greg Gayler

Hey guys!
Recently I’ve been listening to the show and really get a lot out of it. I think I’m
getting better.. Slowly.. Anyway, moving on, I was playing a new priest deck I threw
together and totally beat this guy on casual. Like really bad. I drew just the right
combo for something I hadn’t even thought about! First I drew Oasis Snapjaw 2/7
(which Isnt as useless as you think) and also 2 divine spirit spells, and the cherry
on top was Inner fire. I already had the Snapjaw down with a taunt creature and so
he was undamaged this turn. My opponent was at 28 health. I put both divine spirits
on the Snapjaw and then did inner fire which double-doubled it’s health to 28!! Then
inner fire made its attack equal to its health: a 28/28 creature which I then used
to kill my opponent instantly!!! Crazy huh? Just wanted to share that story with
you. Maybe Ariannwyn would get a kick out of a priest winning on round 6? I sure

Keep up the good work!

Job’s done.
