    New Death Cult K

    What happens when a team says new aff, and you just don't have that much to say? This is one of the most useful generic critiques that you can have ready to go- it has a high record of success and tricks to answer all of the common arguments. This is not the old Dartmouth version, it has been revamped and features a lot of newer and stronger evidence. It is a must have for flex and K teams (policy teams even read this argument, though).

    Critical Advantage Frontlines

    This is a all purpose file that is useful to construct a critique on the fly based on the advantages the aff is reading. The file includes critiques to handle a variety of different arguments the aff will likely make on this topic. A must have for NFL districts, the ToC, NFL nationals or any other crucial tournament.

    Give Back the Land

    This is an old classic that I put together a couple of years ago as a fallback generic strategy. It's pretty useful when you're not exactly sure what to read. You should have it, just in case you need it in a pinch.

    China Impact Turns

    This is a file that includes impact turns to US-Chinese relations, US-China war and CCP collapse. A bunch of camps have put out affs with China advantages, so this should be pretty useful next year.

    Generic Kritik Answers

    Table of Contents
     
    We all know that reading a generic K frontline is not desirable, but given the massive community consensus against framework as a theory argument and the fact that many people have insufficient answers to the majority of criticisms, I believe this file is necessary. Essentially it contains a 2AC that can be read against any criticism, and will allow the aff to win the debate, though it is probably more effective against epistemological and ontological criticisms. It will allow you to at least put yourself in a better position come the 2AC than spending 8 minutes of prep trying to find answers to an author you have never heard of.

    Aff Theory Essentials

    Table of Contents
     
    This is a theory file I put together that contains the 2AC for most of the theory arguments you could ever actually need in a debate. It also has the 1NC for a couple of arguments that are generally useful. The intent of this file is to counteract two problems that I have seen in a large number of high school debates: 1.) Theory blocks that are much too long and contain useless arguments; 2.) Not knowing why a situation you haven't seen before is cheating. This file allows you to put a foot down on the largest theory questions of the day.

    Living PIC

    Table of Contents
     
    If you are looking for something to catch the other team off guard, this is the file for you. The evidence is surprisingly good and qualified, and the argument is not something that generic word PIC answers will be super effective against. This is a file I put together a while back and never actually had a team read. Its fairly useful and could definitely win a debate or two at districts.

    Table of Contents
     
    Hot off the presses, economy updates! These are the most crucial updates every weekend, and if you haven't done any, this should get it done. The evidence this week is especially good, given that both sides of the debate have some good arguments.

    Increase PIC

    Table of Contents
     
    This file is one of the more useful files on this topic, since everyone seems to have forgotten about it. When teams read affs that just remove a barrier, there is no reason they need to actually increase social services. So the trick to this argument is to PIC out of the increase in social services, read a DA, like politics with a spending link or just the economy DA, and then read topicality. They can't win the perm without being untopical, and they can't win T without conceding the perm. Either way, you are in a good strategic position, and take out the majority of their advantages, most likely all of them.

    Asylum Seekers CP/Refugee Flow Net Benefit

    Table of Contents
     
    This counterplan was written against Carrollton's aff, though it could be used against any aff like it. It contains a pretty useful counterplan and net benefit against the aff. Its a must have if you find yourself without a strategy against teams that read this aff.

    Military Health Care Neg

    Table of Contents
     
    This is a negative I wrote for Blake against Rowland Hall St. Mark's aff. These arguments did not get run, but would also be effective against affs of a similar type, and has an effective strategy against any aff with a ground forces good advantage, making it an effective multifunctional file.

    This is a file of economy updates that take into account the most recent events in the US and world economies.

The main feature of the file is that every card in the file is from November 12, which means you will probably have the newest cards for this weekend.

    Native Risk Aff

    Table of Contents
     
    This affirmative is quite a steal, since it already has 2AC frontlines to all generic negative arguments. Not only that, but it also has 2AC's to the best specific arguments against the aff. It's very strategic, since it has a couple of tricks to answer both DA's and the K. Its especially useful to answer that annoying team that always reads the cap K, since this aff can give it the smackdown, and the 2AC to the two most common manifestations of the K are included.

    R&D PIC/Medicaid Neg

    Table of Contents
     
    This is a tricky PIC that one of our teams deployed with great success. It's useful more generally than just a PIC, but it can be used against some Medicaid affs as a PIC. The basic argument is a DA about government funded R&D, versus privately funded R&D. It's a more theoretically sound version of the crowd-out DA that people have been running, though it has nothing to do with charities. Our team is the only one I can think of that's actually read this DA, so it could be very useful!

    God Affirmative

    Table of Contents
     
    This is a tricky aff designed to take down the majority of team's policy arguments. First, it is probably topical and is oriented to defeat topicality fairly easily. Second, it has several tricks to answer utilitarianism and other disad tricks people commonly try to use against K teams. Third, it gets around the argument that God doesn't exist, making it especially useful against most policy teams, who won't pack much else. Finally, it has some tricks against the counterplan and the K. All in all a solid choice of aff.

    Increase Justification

    Table of Contents
     
    This is the oldest trick in the debate book, and I mean that almost literally. Justification is an extremely effective argument at the NFL tournament, as numerous previous years (including the NFL finals two years ago) prove. This argument is a theory argument and a counterplan rolled into one, and questions whether we really need to increase alternative energy incentives, or if we can just shift them from existing ineffective programs and save ourselves a bit of money/an unfortunate trade-off.

    Energy Regime K/Alternative Energy PIC

    Table of Contents
     
    This criticism is an effective response to any policy aff on the topic- it criticizes the meta narrative of progress surrounding alternative energy. This criticism is particularly useful, especially for NFL, because it is incredibly easy to explain and understand and surprisingly difficult to respond to because there are few common criticism answers that actually answer it. The basic argument is that the aff's 1ac is constructed around an idea that progress is the ultimate answer to the question of energy, and that if we only advanced our technology further we could overcome the past failures of technology. Basically, the aff assumes that progress is desirable in and of itself. This is bad in the specific instance of alternative energy, because this progress meta narrative has allowed the inequalities within energy distribution to be ignored and let's energy companies get away with destroying the environment and encouraging wasteful consumption, as well as creating and pushing wars in order to sell more product. Also included in the file is a PIC out of the term alternative energy, which is basically the same argument redeployed as a specific criticism of the term alternative energy as a euphemism.

    This aff worked well at the NFL qualifying tournament and is sure to be effective at nationals. It includes two versions of the affirmative, to make it more adaptable to the variable judging types that appear at NFL. It includes advantages that are fairly uncommon and utilizes an alternative energy that not many have discussed this year. Included in the file are blocks to the most common arguments and various impact modules and advantages.
