Who is Gertrude Yorkes?


You tell me.

What does that totem montage say to you about our freshly minted one-drop Runaways wonder-rare? Have you ever experienced her mythos in the comics? In seventy two hours I will have the card in my hands and answer the question myself, but for now… you tell me.

Who is Gertrude Yorkes?

Longshot loves Arsenic. He loves her a lot.

How blonde are you? That’s the flavor text of the Runaways’ one-drop Vs. System character, and she rocks Longshot’s world. The Mulletman is blonde as it gets.

Gertrude Yorkes also give a wink and a nod to any weenie-loving Ratcatcher fan who was looking to ride The Leapfrog into an evasion-burn black hole of cardboard glory.

In other words, Stu happy. Stu VERY happy.

This is gonna work. More than I ever imagined it could.

Leave me a comment, or just stay tuned. My drawing board just lit up like a nuclear powered disco ball. The party is ON.

New Day Rising with a Leapfrogged Last Laugh.


The card was unveiled on Carlos the Dwarf’s master blog.

It was the first thing that entered my brain this glorious new day, immediately following my morning triple espresso.

Then, obviously, I googled “Savage Tofu Last Laugh”.  If you know me at all, you are catching the drift.

Let the opposing attacks wreck Ratcatcher. Wait until all your dudes are stunned, and then burn for 60.

If the opponent has dished out less than 79 endurance loss by the end of turn 4 with this goldfish, the Rat’s Laugh will be laughing last. After all this is said and done, there were only ten cards left in the deck. This was a fairly clunky draw, so it obviously can be really brutal to play against. I have been working on versions of this deck since Pro Circuit Los Angeles 2006. As more 1-drop evaders are created, Rat’s Laugh will become even more gruesome.

The original article that houses that quote from Joe Corbett is right here at the click of a mouse. It is one of the crowning achievements in Vs. System history. And if you scroll down to see the punk rock pioneer-o-thon that was officially endorsed by Mike Watt himself in the post under this one, you can see that this New Day Rising is coming together quite nicely in a way that I could have never dreamed possible.

Stay tuned to this station. The Leapfrog is gonna get my groove back, I can feel it.
