CCR

Episode 63: Guilds of Ravnica Deckstravaganza!

They’re here! Week 0 standard decks are here! We’ve been brewing, we’ve been playing, and we’re bringing you all the latest of this experimental frenzy. Is monogreen stompy the deck to beat? Or is tribal angels perhaps going to be the new format bogeyman? Find out on this week’s episode! Thanks as always to Wave Sunray for our music.

Episode 62: Gerry! Gerry! Gerry!

The Magic: the Gathering World Championship was this weekend as you may…or may not… have known. With GerryT choosing to sit this one out in protest of WotC’s treatment of pro players and organized play, we’ve got Serious Thoughts about what this means for Magic. Plus! Collins played some big colorless monsters this weekend and CCR goes into his European experience. Come hang out!

CCR is back from Germany, just in time to review the hottest new set around.

Come hang out!

Episode 59: Reid Duke, Reactive Decks, and Return to Ravnica

This week! We’re talking GP Reid Duke and how totally rad coverage was this past weekend. Slightly less importantly: we’ve got Guilds of Ravnica Spoilers! And since spoiler season is starting we’re going to take some time to talk about the cards that are leaving the format, what holes we’re trying to fill, and what we’re looking for in spoiled cards.

Come hang out! Thanks as always to Wave Sunray for our music.

Episode 58: The Spirit of Modern

Modern’s moving faster than ever! With GP Prague and SCG Baltimore behind us we’ve got some new decks taking over the top tier of the metagame–are UW control, spirits, and hardened scales here to stay? And what’s the deal with Vengevine? Plus we talk about making mistakes and how to respond to them. Come hang out!

Thanks as always to Wave Sunray for our music.

Episode 57: Be Better Today

A different kind of episode this week. We’ll pick back up with your regularly scheduled hard-hitting metagame analyses next week, but this week we wanted to hit pause and talk about some of the stuff going on around the gamec, including cheating, the hall of fame, and some of the other issues that have engrossed the Magic community. Then, Collins shares a little of the story of his own Magic journey, and what the future holds for him.

Episode 56: From Hardened Scales to Hard-to-Crack Metas

Fasten your seatbelts and harden your scales, because standard and modern are moving quick! But we’re here to break the formats down and take a look at the latest tech popping up in tournaments all over the physical and digital realms. Plus: what to do when you feel like your metagame calls keep falling short, even while other people seem to succeed again and again.

Episode 55: The Pro Tour 25th Anniversary Special!

Pro Tour 25th Anniversary is in the books, and the pros put on a bit of a show for us! From Turbofog to turbo street wraiths, and some Vengevines thrown into the mix (looks like Collins was right) we’re breaking apart all the action from this weekend and trying to figure out what the heck CCR is going to play at GP Brussels this weekend. Come hang out!

Thanks as always to Wave Sunray for our music.

Episode 54: Modern Madness!

SCG Indy is over and done, and brought some huge changes to the modern format! So this week we’re talking Militia Bugler, Wizard’s Lightning, and Drogskol Captain. Even a little Vengevine for spice! Plus we settle once and for all whether Jeskai Control is unplayable in Modern. Come hang out!
