That was last year’s Vs. System Thanksgiving feast, live on the mothership. I was playing as the newly released Galactus, and my three wonderful children were running hordes of one-drop army dudes to swarm their father into submission. You can click that link to see the decklists and the final results. For the Feast of 2008, we have a fresh recipe from the other side of the Atlantic.
The center photograph is the actual gamestate that Joe “lordoflimbo” Clarke found himself in on turn six the other night in Britain. How in the world could so much stuffing come out of a single 60-card deck?
Before we start, you will need to know where to find the mythical Currs to stuff your bird. This is from the official Marvel Comics’ continuity book:
Annihilation: Silver Surfer #1, (2006)
They use sensory like tentacles to find their way through the cosmos. They are only found in packs of threes and are attached to each other by a glowing umbilical cord.
Dog like creatures with no eyes.
That’s the meat of the deck, allowing the Thanos Turkey to spill its juicy bounty all over the board. Here is the actual recipe, by the Jankmaster Chef Joe Clarke himself. I hope you are hungry.
