Episode 46: How to Beat Goblin Chainwhirler

…or, at least, how to try to beat it. With PT Dominaria in the books, standard has a new semi-psychotic overlord. Have his decrees made 1 toughness creatures completely unplayable? Are Chris and Collins trying to find a way to beat the three mana goblin, or are we just living in a chain whirled? Find out on this episode!

Episode 45: PT Dominaria Preview Show!

Pro Tour Dominaria is almost here! To prepare you for your viewing experience, Chris and Collins break down the pillars of Standard as they stand going into the tournament. From Monored to no-win-con UW control, and all the sizes of BR aggro in between we look at the basics of the format and the latest developments. Plus a quick runthrough of the draft format to help get you as hype as we are.

Episode 44: Teferi is Busted

Teferi is making himself known in both standard and modern, drawing cards, exiling permanents, untapping lands and even serving as a mind-numbing win condition. We take a look at last week’s modern results and the rapidly evolving standard landscape, bringing you an up to the minute look at both metas. Come hang out!

Episode 43: Snakes and Shadows: GP Birmingham and (finally) a Modern Episode!

CCR is back from GP Birmingham where he tells the story of barely squeaking into top 64 with…not the right deck for the weekend. Plus Collins shares how he’s trying to break back into modern with a deck you might not expect (unless you look at the thumbnail for this episode). Come hang out!

Episode 42: Vehicles and Vampires: Going Deep on Standard and Legacy

Fresh off of yet another Team Open top 8, Collins gives us the inside scoop on that Lotus Box build of WB that absolutely dominated this past weekend. Plus we talk about the slightly oxymoronic Slow Turbo Depths that Jody Keith played next to him all weekend and that CCR’s about to take to a title in Birmingham. Come hang out!

As always, thanks to Wave Sunray for our music.

Episode 40: Dominaria Constructed Set Review 2 (Red/Green/Multicolor/Colorless/Land)

We made it! This one’s a monster but we didn’t want to short any of the cards we’re excited about in Dominaria–or any of the cards we’re not so excited about. But we chat about every card in the set with constructed potential, what we like and what we don’t. Give us a listen before you start brewing!

Thanks as always to Wave Sunray for our music.

Episode 39: Dominaria Constructed Set Review (White/Blue/Black)

It’s here! Spoiler season is over, so Chris and Collins get together for a card-by-card set review. For Dominaria we’re trying out a 2-part review, entirely because the set looks really sweet and not at all because we tend to ramble when we get excited. So sit back, relax, and let us let you in on which cards are great and which cards are…speculative.

Episode 38: Hometown Hero: GP Seattle Legacy Champion Daniel Duterte!

Friend of the show Daniel Duterte ran the tables at GP Seattle, his only loss coming in the form of a concession to Steve Rubin in Round 15 so he could eat a crepe. We were lucky enough to snag him for an episode, where he talks tournament prep, getting into legacy, and how he fits Magic into his life. Come hang out, and maybe pick up a couple of Grixis Delver tricks and lunch strategy along the way!

Episode 37: Man, that’s W.A.A.C: How far is too far?

Player interaction is one aspect of tournament play that sometimes gets pushed to the side in favor of metgame analysis and sideboard choices. But it’s something we do every single match, and our choices in how we approach judge calls, die rolls, and communication with our opponents can affect the way your tournament plays out as well as your place in the community. This episode is definitely an oddball, so buckle up and enjoy!

Episode 36: Top 8’s and Topdecks

Collins is fresh off of his third Team Open top 8, and we’ve got plenty to talk about! From being carried to the elimination rounds by 15-year-old Austin Collins, to the latest on MTGArena, to CCR’s first tentative forays into legacy, there’s something here for everyone!

Oh yeah, and we talk about a bunch of rad new Dominaria cards too!
