Ursinity and Proud theorycraft a little differently this week.  Ursinity reveals his ideas about a five-man composition to try with the Theorycrafters' teammates in Hakuna Mirana.  The composition consists of  Necrophos, Undying, Centaur Warruner, Shadow Shaman, and Invoker.  But when the Theorycrafters head in-game to try this latest form of cheese out, they come face to face with some enemy cheese.  And it's stinkier.  Like good stinky though.  The way it's supposed to be with cheese.  Which is funny, cause you never really do that with anything else.  I wouldn't hand you a delicious cookie and be like, "Damn, that's a stinky-ass cookie, better eat that right up."  But we do with cheese?  Oh yeah.  Dota 2.  That's what this show is about.
