I haven't seen any threads about classic core NBN so I thought I'd start one. I know there is a "Post Clot NBN" thread but that is mainly dedicated to discussing how NEH can attempt to FA around the Clot threat.
I've always liked the tag threat Making News decks, but they always played second or third fiddle to Taxman or Never Advance styles of play--decks with very limited tag threats.
I think with some of the new mean sentries NBN now has available, combined with the popularity of Mimic and the diminished Criminal (and Faerie) play, it's more possible to stick a tag and do something mean with it.
Does anyone else think taggy Making News can be a competitive deck? I think it's got a shot. Here's a list that I've been toying with with some success, would like to hear if anyone else has been winning with tag-centric Making News decks.
