Draft Mechanic Episode #95: Keyforge

Each episode of Draft Mechanic is just like a deck of Keyforge - they’re all unique and have their own special content! This one, thankfully, is reviewing Keyforge, so that metaphor was applicable and totally called for. We’re also going on a weird unique detour in the CarcaZone… the Card game? Plus Herbaceous gets dice, your tour band gets… other dice, and lots more. Such interesting combinations!
