I'm going to go out on a limb and say that we should at least try to get somebody who isn't Toxie if Toxie's going anyway on the idea that this would bring up a double-or-nothing situation - it's a risk, yes, but it could be worth it.
It's not double or nothing. It's something or nothing.

Lynching scum now would be nice, but it would not actually give us another phase. That's why I'm saying we literally only gain from lynching Toxie this phase. (Again, effectively a no-lynch, but without leaving him any wiggle room.)

It's also worth nothing that if both modkills *are* Town, and there are four scum players, we literally cannot lynch scum. (4 scum, 6 active Town, 7 to lynch.) This makes lynching now an extremely bad idea.

If one of the modkills is scum, as we can hope, it's still 3 scum players against 7 active players. If literally everyone in the Town comes together, we can just barely lynch scum, if, and only if we make no mistakes at all. (Yugi > Decoy > Goose?)

I'm not going to lie, looking at the heavy Town power revealed at this point in the game, I'm expecting scum to have something to compensate. A bigger, four-man team is looking likely. A three man team is nice if it happens, but not something I'm counting on.

I'm doing this.

VOTE: Toxie. This ensures Toxie dies this phase, without upsetting the lynching balance. Again, it's basically a no-lynch, but confirms the modkill we are assuming will happen.

As things stand, scum likely have too much control over the lynch, and potentially can prevent us from lynching scum at all simply by not voting. We lose nothing waiting a phase, and we gain significant information via flips.

If nobody else agrees, then I'll vote scum. Currently leaning Yugi > Decoy > Goose(?) all things staying the same.

Backslash, you're probably one of the better people at math still in the game. Naft, Deamon, Zet, trusting your opinions as well. Yay/Nay?

bruh I'm an anthropology major, I don't do math

In all seriousness though, I'm agreeing with what you're saying here. I never took my vote off Toxie so I'm fine leaving it there whether we manage to lynch him or not. I'm not sold on an Espi lynch at all until I see Prim's flip, and I might rank decoy slightly scummier than Yugi but either way they're both scummier than Goose atm.

Kinda not liking Decoy for how he ignored my math and pushed it as double or nothing.

Caveat - It's Decoy. Yeah.

I used to be able to do maths, but then I quit my engineering major and that part of my brain magically stopped working.

Uhm...yes. The math checks out.

Scumnulling Yugi and Decoy, but not enough to risk a flip on either until we have more info.

I feel more or less comfortable with throwing in my VOTE: Toxie, but I wanna see if we can get more info out of Yugi and/or decoy before hammering.

My thoughts on them:

Decoy's been lurking hard, while just barely scraping by enough to dodge inactivity, and his posts don't really offer much in the way of reads. Any other time I'd push for a policy lynch there, but we can't afford a mislynch.

Yugi's a mixed bag, but scumnull and trending scummier: his no-voting combined with his echoing of other people's pushes is scummy, his day 1 refusal to back either the fogue or the flare wagon is very sketch just cuz it looks like he's trying to avoid suspicion without having to actually push flare, and this is only somewhat alleviated by his 'yeah, i know I'm not being super original, but I don't really have new thoughts here' disclaimers. Scum can easily put that kind of thing up to avoid having a strong opinion. I still like his push on candy, even though she flipped town, because it was a hard push based on pretty solid reasoning, but I'm biased because I thought Candy's play was scummy af. Could've been a legit push, could've been scum targeting flailing townie. I've already brought up why I don't like his play this round, though I'm inclined to believe out-of-game claims to tiredness, since lying about irl stuff is highly frowned upon. The main thing about Yugi is that while his plays can be characterized and understood from a town perspective, he still looks scummy.

I think Backslash already touched on this, but since I can't seem to find the post, or any response - what makes it so unlikely Murder decided to use a role that hasn't seen much use here before?

It just seems a really odd thing to base doubt on.

I'm down with the Toxie lynch, if that's what you're asking me, but I'd actually prefer to have it happen through a no-lynch rather than through putting our votes on him. That way the phase goes all the way through to its natural conclusion and if something happens between now and that time (say, someone counterclaiming after taking their time doing so or anything else that might happen, IDK) we have enough time to react and change our votes accordingly.

Honestly, I disagree.

The most dangerous thing for us right now is apathy, and drawing the phase out unnecessarily is not helpful. This is an argument we will be able to discuss next phase, with more information. The best part of this strategy is that even in the ridiculously unlikely event somebody counterclaims, and it's too late to change votes, it doesn't hurt us. That's what I spent ages Math-ing about.

If anyone has anything new left to say, after already having had five days to say it, there's still time while we're moving forward towards a lynch. That said, if we're just going to lynch Toxie anyway, there isn't any good reason to take our time about it. It doesn't add anything new to the table. It just discourages what activity we have.

Basically, it's hard enough creating activity in endgame. Don't make it worse. Unless there is a reason to draw things out, when we will be in a better position to have this argument next phase, please just vote.

Vyse, I'm down to clown. I'm also for lynching Decoy before Yugi at this point - I think they're both scum, but I'm not sure.

Also open to the possibility that Zetsu's hoodwinked us, though. That's me with my paranoid hat on. Right now townblock is Deamon, backslash, yourself, and I, with zetsu and Goose floating around outside of it.

Following the prim flip, boogie and Espi can join us - not that I'm counting on their support considering we haven't heard from them in a while.
