Episode 98 – Calling All Degens 2 – Ancient Stirrings

Direct | Spotify Soundcloud iTunes | Stitcher | YouTube | Twitch ​

Zach was cloistered with his Pro Tour testing team earlier this week so Dylan Hand, Star City grinder and contributor subbed in to help me cover the back half of our Faithless Looting/Ancient Stirrings degeneracy review in the post-KCI world!

We cover:

  • Recent event results
  • Metagame trends
  • Cards you *should* be playing
  • Ancient Stirrings decks – how to play ’em and how to beat ’em
  • Decks we’re playing, the Spice Rack and more!

Episode 97 – Calling All Degenerates

KCI is dead. What is the most busted thing you can be doing in Modern right now? What is the mysterious Modern announcement at the end of the month? What cards would we add to Modern?

Long story short, Faithless Looting and Ancient Stirrings are where its at. We’ll do a deep dive on Ancient Stirrings decks next time but right now we’re going Looting!
