Episode 75.5 – Dominaria Spoiler Minisode

* This episode is ALL spoilers so if you are avoiding them, don’t listen to this for a few weeks *

A bunch of Dominaria got spoiled due to an internal mix up. Normally we don’t discuss leaks but in this case since the information wasn’t stolen or anything and the doc ended up being posted officially we will hit some of what caught our eye.

(Spoiler of the spoiler: the set looks insane!)

Episode 73 – Modern Pro Tour AFTERMATH

Modern Pro Tour happened. Lantern won. How did we get there? Where are we now? What even is life?

We go over the Pro Tour results, review the nuts and bolts of Lantern, strategies for successful sideboarding and as a special treat, since this was (obviously) recorded prior to the B&R you get to listen to our 25% correct predictions toward the end.

All that and a charming Spice Rack card!

* Quick note: We reference a “Call a Judge” segment but it was a casualty of a cat induced data loss. We’ll add it to the next episode.

 

Episode 67 – Tribal Nines

In this episode, “Mr. Ninth Place” and I talk about Tribal decks! 5c Humans and UG Merfolk had great showings at the last SCG event so I brewed up Tribal Warriors with a bunch of new tools and cover some of the other “almost there” tribes.

There were some rumblings of unbannings with the last announcement and we speculate about what that could mean for the future of our beloved format!

There’s Gitrog Monster Loam Pox, a sweet playmat giveaway and a NEW INTRO SONG FEATURING Shael Riley, Beefy, Ty Guenly and Tanner of The freakin’ Grammar Club remixed by me!
