Episode 116 – “Companion. Is it good or is it whack?”

 

Ikoria is upon us and the Companion mechanic is causing shockwaves in every constructed format. So…is it good or is it whack?

Join Ari and I as we dig into Companion, brushwaggs and more!

(We also hit some highlights from the set AND put together an infinite mana combo with a card I can guarantee you haven’t heard of before!)

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!

This episode is a little late coming out (long story) but we cover the Oko, Opal, Lattice ban and make some predictions. How did we do? Listen and find out!

There’s puns, Pioneer talk, Theros stuff…it is a big old burger with all the fixins (no lettuce tho) and a Spice Rack to boot.

We should be back to regular schedule after this so thanks for sticking with us!

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!
