    Yeah for some reason every time I edit the OP it deletes a bunch of random spaces. Probably an FF extension I have. I'll look at it later. Anyway it should be fixed.

    Do we seriously have to name it "Luna's New Groove"? Luna has historical reference and stuff, but I never say to anyone "I swept with Luna's New Groove", I say "I swept with NP Jynx".

    Well, people are going to be incredulous regardless of whether you say "I swept with luna's new groove" or "i swept with jynx" so you might as well go for broke.

    Anyway, the set's name doesn't really matter, it's just there to give an idea of what the set does and possibly make punny references (i.e. CroCune, Boah). I'll certainly rename it if other UU QC members would like me to though.

    Just to be completely clear, neither of those example names are puns or jokes. The set's name does matter though, because the name exists to tell a reader what the set is and does, as well as what its referred to at large. Obviously it's up to QC but I felt compelled to add that those set names weren't jokes.

    Well, my point was that from the perspective of telling readers what a set is/does, "CroCune" and "Tyraniboah" might as well be "LolCune" and "TyraniLamamadingdong". The names are pretty much there to pay homage to the set's creator/popularizer or just to describe its impact in some cool way.
    Anyway I don't want to turn this into a big deal or anything. I wouldn't be adverse to changing the set name, I just think it's fine the way it is.

    Hey FlareBlitz, are you going to tackle many of Jynx's other sets? (Perish trapping and what not) The sets on-site are currently OU based.

    I tested the Lead Jynx set and it was pretty good so I'll probably write that up. I wasn't happy with the perish trapper, jynx invites priority and faster revenge killers in, both of which ruin the perish trapping strategy. It would have been better in the more stallish cress meta but...I might write it up just in case UU does enter a stall period at some point in the future.

    Will update the OP with your changes Draco Zephyr, thank you very much.
