There's going to be non-stop goodness on Land of Redemption between now and the end of Nationals!

Here's the line up:

Wednesday - Wolves in Sheeps Clothing (heretics preview)
Thursday - The Preeminence of Christ Jesus and the Colossi Church (preview)
Friday - DOUBLE FEATURE - Pocket Devo: Epaphras and Can I Get a Counter? King David
Saturday - Nationals Booster Draft Primer Podcast: Part 1 Commons
Sunday - Nationals Booster Draft Primer Podcast: Part 2 Rares
Monday - Full Spoiler of The Persecuted Church revealed!!!
Tuesday - Nationals preview
Wednesday - Seek and Ye Shall Find (new card overview)
Thursday - The Christ Likeness of Joseph
Thursday, Friday & Saturday - Nationals Coverage

We will be taking a short break starting Sunday, August 2nd but content will resume later that week.

For those of you that are not attending Nationals, what type of coverage would you like to see?

Gabe, JD is planning on setting a camera up to broadcast some live footage I believe. Not sure if it'll be through Periscope or what. But at least we'll have that, which is pretty cool.

Hey yall! Just wondering if this is something we want to do or not! Got the GoPro to stream live footage to a screen so if we set up a laptop to a projector or tv we can stream the footage from a table so everyone can see it :) There is a little bit of latency but it looks pretty cool!

Really looking forward to Nationals!! Can't believe it's only a week away! Blessings ^^

I for one would be definitely in favor of this. It should probably be left up to the players whether or not they want their decks revealed during the tourney, but I'd say if both players at the table agree, this would be a great resource to have for future players to see top decks in action (assuming the stream is also recorded).

Stinks because I can not go to nationals this year this is definitely something I would like to see, but I do agree that you should make sure the players are okay with it

That's awesome that there will be live streaming!

Are you only planning to show the games on a screen in house? I'm not sure I completely understand the purpose of that outside of top cut.

If you plan to live stream online, has anyone checked to make sure the bandwidth at the church can handle live streaming?

Typically, the way live streaming games is handled is that the players involved are asked in advance if they're OK with it. If they mind then choose a different "top table" to broadcast. This works for games outside the top cut. Once the top cut begins, players that are involved should expect to have their game broadcast.

Games broadcast online are far more interesting if there's someone (or a pair of people) commentating. You could also record the games and add commentary later, then upload them to the web.

I'm no expert at any of this but I do have some experience so if you need any assistance I'm glad to help.

Some sort of general ideas of which types of decks are being successful in the different categories would be cool. Also a breakdown of interesting ruling situations that are bound to come up.

I would like to see unique situations and deep types of ruling. I would also like to see awesome plays that almost no one has seen if there are any:)

Thanks for the input. We will try to provide that and more!

Any other feedback is welcome too.

As for the bandwidth issue, if the church Wi-Fi can't handle it, I could probably set up my mobile hotspot on my phone to see if that would work. I get data pretty cheap (one of the benefits of working for Verizon) so as long as the signal is strong enough, I wouldn't mind helping to set it up. We can try to run some tests Thursday evening to see if that would be possible.

I nominate Westy and Olijar. Since, you know, there is a ~6% chance they will both be in top cut... ;)

For the video we can do either record for later (top cut tables only, possibly undefeated players only) or stream to a projector so others can watch with ease :)

I'd rather watch the bottom tables. They usually have better (and longer) Battle Phases.  ;D

Commentating was hysterical at OH district. My favorite was whenever someone rescued a soul we'd start going nuts while yelling "SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUULLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!"
Good times.

Did anyone notice Gabe changed his profile picture to a photo of his great great great great great uncle?  Do you see the family resemblance?

Congrats John I am excited to read your report.

In case you haven't already noticed, on Land of Redemption we have a number of reports, deck and play analysis coming in from Nationals. There are more on the way!

Unfortunately we were not able to record any matches. The GoPro we expected did not make it to Nationals and honestly, if you read the reports, the final match between John and Josiah would not have been very exciting to watch.

For those that want to see a high level game with commentary on the thought process and plays, it's still forthcoming. John and I have plans to produce such a video, possibly of a game between his 1st place deck and my 4th place deck.

I am looking forward to this a lot!  Hopefully you and John are able to make it happen   :D

If it does end up happening, and you are able to make multiple videos, I would recommend targeting specific deck type matchups from these generic categories to mix things up:

1. Offense-heavy, meta (Teal tomb, Disciples/Pharisees, FBTNB, etc.)
2. Balanced, meta (Disciples or OT spread offense paired with NT Gray/Black splash, Genyptians, Hand Control, John's version of The Deck, etc.)
3. Balanced, anti-meta (Josiah's deck, Judges/Assyrian magician decks, my Judges/Ezekiel/Babylonian magician deck, etc.)
4. Defense-heavy, anti-meta (John's deck, etc.)

If you have two good players piloting well-built decks, the commentary and analysis will always be valuable to the Redemption community as a whole - but I think different deck matchups from the list above will definitely help players learn advanced strategies, depending the type of deck they are playing with or playing against.

This week on Land of Redemption we have a full plate of articles, interviews and insights from Nationals as well as the Friday devotion!

John and I recorded a game using new decks with Persecuted Church cards. We still need to edit the footage and add commentary. It might be up as early as next week.

We decided a game against our decks from Nationals wouldn't be very exciting to watch (or play) since John's deck is very one sided. If this project goes well you can expect more like this in the future.
