Grindcast Episode 155: Prowessing up a Storm in Modern

This week we’re breaking down where Modern has gone post-Astrolabe ban, including the 5(!!) different colors of prowess decks that showed up in the Manatraders tournament. Plus we complain about standard and give our takes on Historic!

Grindcast Episode 154: Surveying the Modern Landscape

Astrolabe took a ban, and now Modern is wide open. Well, wide open-er. We’ve got goblins and titans and sprite dragons all making a bid for the top of the heap, and Lee and CCR are looking at their favorites.

Grindcast Episode 152: Goodbye Collins

It’s kind of hard to believe, but this is Collins’s last episode! We’re talking about future plans, the work we’ve done and, because we don’t want to get away from our roots, we’re talking about Magic too.

Collins, it’s been awesome. You will be missed.

Grindcast Episode 151: A Truly Historic Episode

For the first time ever, CCR and Collins are digging into the Historic format. With the Lotus Box Invitational coming up we’ve got to have at least some idea of what the format’s about, so we dig into some lists and prepare to get some matches in. Is the format Nexus v Gruul, or can we pull out some nuance?

Grindcast Episode 150: M21 Constructed Set Review!

M21 is here, and Chris and Collins are taking a look! How much will a set full of Baneslayers impact a meta full of Elspeth Conquers Death? Let’s find out!

Grindcast Episode 149: Reclaiming Standard (and Spoilers!)

We’re in a gap week: two PTs last weekend, two PTs this weekend. What can we learn in the meantime? Well, Temur Rec is pretty good. Pretty really good. Is there any way to keep up?

Grindcast Episode 148: Sharking the PT (with Zan Syed)

Zan is hanging out with us as he shares his prep for the PT–which he says will be defined by misinformation. Come get the scoop on standard and stick around for some m21 spoilers!

Grindcast Episode 147: Com-ban-ions

That big announcement is here and it’s a wild one! A couple of bans to standard and historic, and a companion nerf to every format. But is it enough?

Thanks as always to Wave Sunray for our music.

Grindcast Episode 146: You’ve just been Organized Played

Big changes for Organized Play, some of them unavoidable, some of them…extremely avoidable. Lee and CCR sit down and talk over everything that’s happened in this very full week.
