We're not really preparing for war (in the strictest sense) though, we're preparing for BSK. In less than three weeks from now, Juzams will be battling in Borås. We have run into some speed bumps with the location though; the one we thought we had recently got cancelled on short notice, and among the other dozen alternatives we've checked out, none has panned out well yet. Wherever we land, there will surely be sweet magic with good people. We have random prices, some pins, and soon some trophies.
Players giving casual "prices" to other participants are a fairly long-standing tradition at BSK and n00bcon. Last year, Daniel "Kungen" Ahlberg placed last at BSK, and he was awarded a playset of each Kobold with trash talk about his mediocre skill written on them by the top12 players.

The Kobold Deck isn't really a budget deck, as it needs four copies of Gauntlet of Might to run well. It doesn't require any duals though, so if you happen to a have a playset of the third most expensive card in Magic (in 1994), this could be something fun to try out :)
