Episode 115 – Once Upon a Ban

Welp, the fairy tale has come to an end for many decks with the banning of Once Upon a Time. We provide a little commentary, a little perspective, and more importantly, practical advice on some things the major OUaT decks can slot in for the time being.

Thanks for listening and please wash your hands!

Episode 114 – Sideboarding for Fun and Profit

“Great players that sideboard badly lose more than medium players that sideboard well.”

Sideboarding is an essential skill both at the deckbuilding level and for tournament success. In this episode we cover some general points on the subject along with a card by card case study of the sideboard configuration that took Ahren’s TemUro deck from a 2-3 zero to 5-0 hero.

More Real Talk about Pioneer, an Underworld Breach deck that should be on your radar, BOGO Spice Rack cards and more!

Episode 111 – Now For Something Completely Different

Join Ari and I as we jump back into the Flying Circus of Modern and Pioneer with…Something Completely Different.

We run down the problems with Pioneer, are they solvable? The numbers tell the tale.

Modern isn’t perfect either but we pull some interesting stats and what the implications are there as well.

All that AND two Spice Rack cards.

Episode 110 – Oregon Trail

First off, apologies for the extreme lateness of the November episodes. November was an insane month in my personal life (I changed jobs and had an unexpected death in the family) so this episode and the next one took a lot longer than expected to release.

This episode was recorded live with OG co-host Chris on Discord for Patrons right after the Pioneer announcement. The first round of bans hadn’t happened yet but it is an interesting look into what our predictions for the format would be like (we did pretty well).

Enjoy this time capsule and thanks for listening!

Episode 109 – Watch the Throne

This episode we dive into Throne of Eldraine’s impact on Modern. Spoiler alert: it is BIG! Ari and I cover what hit, what missed, how to catch that darn gingerbread man, a Spice Rack that’s twice as nice and more!

Thanks for listening!

Episode 108 – The One Where Zach Stops By

Zach swings by the ol’ podcast to give us a peek into what he’s been up to then we talk:

  • Throne of Eldraine Rare lands (and why you’re evaluating them wrong)
  • Stoneforge Mystic unbanning so far
  • Urza, Lord High Artificer (and why you shouldn’t buy Mox Opals)
  • Spice Rack and more!

  3. The numbering got a little weird because last month was a nightmare so the ep is introduced in the recording as 110. There’s 2 “lost episodes” that will be released at some point that fill in that gap.

Episode 107 – Banned and Delivered

Ari and I are back and things have changed for the better! Join us for a rousing discussion of bannings, unbannings, The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota, what to do when you hate Magic, possible homes for Stoneforge, TWO Spice Rack cards and more!

It’s a whole new world folks!

Thanks for listening and thanks for sticking with us while Hogaak blew over.
