Episode 99 – Valar Morghulis

So folks aren’t blindsided, Episode 99 was Zach’s last episode. That’s the main reasons this episode took so long to come out. It was a tough record and proved to be a tough edit.
He is stepping away from the game for the time being, there’s no drama or bad blood. His time with the show was great and there will always be space in the lineup if/when he comes back.
Original co-host Chris will be returning for Episode 100 currently scheduled for release the week of the 20th. Following that, the main Turn One Thoughtseize show will be split into a “pro/spike” focused show with myself and Ari Lax and a “general/Johnny Jenny” show with myself and Emma Partlow (Hipsters of the Coast, Card Kingdom).
Chris will be heading up new content for the third week of the schedule focusing on Standard and Arena.
I’m leaving the “fourth” week of the month open for special features, future shows or just a good ol’ fashioned week off.
This episode we cover:
– Modern Horizons wishlist/discussion
– Zach’s memories and farewell

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!
