Hey there Cool Kid! Welcome to the Cool Kid Club! This week, the CKC is discussing a lot of stuff and we get REAL feisty! First, since the passing of the NC Bathroom Bill, there's been a whole lot of craziness! Old Navy posted a seemingly innocuous ad that was met with massive amounts of racism! The Indiana primary had a big effect on the political landscape, hear all about it in Politics Roundup! GLAAD released its Studio Responsibility Index and most outlets boiled it down to "Need More Gay Characters in Star Wars". All that, plus the Wi-Five of the week! Enjoy and be sure to tell a friend!

Remember when reality TV was so budge? RIP ANTM. Well this week Erin and Bryan when fist to cuffs over this ssue: in Shasta County two ladies were voted prom king and queen and not so shockingly some people were pissed. And the GOP fever dream continued in Alabama where they're now trying to restrict transgender people from using the "wrong" fitting room in Target. Also guest and journalist Joel Stein is here with some stories about Martha Stewart!

If you're curious to know about Magic the Gathering methods suggested by listeners, you can find them below!
Hannah suggested that the friends play:
"Constructed, in which players make their decks ahead of time with whatever cards they can get their hands on. This format is the problem the plaintiff is complaining about.
Or drafting, where they each open a pack of cards and take turns picking cards from those packs until each has built a suitable deck for play. At which point, the two play with these new decks that did not exist prior to the game at hand."
Mark suggested another mode of play:
"I've used this one in friendly, non-tournament play and it helps even the playing field. Everyone brings their favorite decks, and each player randomly selects one of the decks that was brought." Essentially, each player has an equal chance of using an "overpowered" deck during a given match.
and Gabe thought of these:
Reject rare draft
(in which each player donates 45 cards and then drafts cards. The rares are "donated", as everyone takes home the deck they draft and no attempt is made to return the rares to the original owners.)
(In Peasant a deck may contain up to 5 uncommon cards and the rest must be common. Peasant Magic was created by Rob Baranowski who felt that players with limited access to cards should still have an opportunity for competitive play.)
(where each player tries to build the worst deck possible, because each player gives another player that deck to play in the tournament.)
