P1P1 For August 7, 2015

It’s been a little while, so let’s do one of these things why not! Chifley Cole A weak looking pack, the candidate picks that I’m considering are Fiery Conclusion, Knightly Valor, Aspiring Aeronaut and Wild Instincts, with the Deadbridge Shaman as the black option if you’ve sworn an oath to always force black.
