Grindcast Episode 104: CCR’s Artifact Adventure

We had quite a weekend at SCG Philly! We got lost in a mall, and then CCR got lost playing Urza to an almost-top-8 at the classic. Collins DID top 8 the standard classic but who really cares about that? Let’s talk some mox opals, some ichor wellsprings, and ok maybe a little standard and modern.

Thanks as always to Wave Sunray for our music!

Grindcast Episode 102: M20 Constructed Set Review

It’s here! We made it through 3.5 hours of set review to bring you only the best of “I don’t think this can keep up with what the elementals deck is doing” over and over again. Ok, maybe slightly more interesting than that. Come see what we think of M20!

Grindcast Episode 101: Jeremy’s Episode

Grindcast Episode 97: Your Gruul Guide

Not Gruul? Then we have to smash. But before we get to the smashing, how about a nuanced discussion about privilege and need within the mtg community? But don’t worry, we spend plenty of time talking about smashing.

Grindcast Episode 95: ZAN’S NUMBER ONE (Jeremy’s ok too)

The Grindcast has been bested. Our roommates caught wind of our sick finishes at SCG Richmond and, quite literally, one-upped us with first place finishes in the open and the modern classic. Zan’s here to give us the lowdown on Jeskai walkers, and Jeremy has the latest on running four Narsets in Modern. Plus! Modern Horizon spoilers.

Grindcast Episode 94: All Eyes on the MPL

This week, Chris and Collins are talking about a small announcement or two out of Organized play. You know, little things like GerryT quitting the MPL, new MPL members, diversity invitations to Arena Mythic Championships. That sort of little thing.

Plus! Standard: so many planeswalkers, so little time. Come hang out!

Grindcast Episode 87: A Whir-lwind Weekend (with Zan Syed!)

Lotus Box team captain Zan Syed joins us this week, fresh off of a top 8 at SCG Cincinnati! We chat about his deck choice methodology, team tournaments, going to time, and even find a few minutes to hear about best of one. Don’t miss it!

Grindcast Episode 83: Getting Curious in Cleveland

Autumn Burchett absolutely smashed MC Cleveland, and we’re here to pick up the pieces. What did we learn from the first ever mythic championship? Has Sultai been unplayable all along? Are merfolk the hidden gem of the format?

Plus! Modern discussion, including updates to the restore balance deck and of course the new mulligan rule for MC London. Come hang out!

Thanks as always to Wave Sunray for our music.

Grindcast Episode 81: CCR was Wrong about Monoblue (so let’s talk about modern instead)

Monoblue tempo crushed it at SCG DFW, and we…did not call it. We check out the latest standard developments before moving on to a breakdown of what’s been happening in modern. Is Phoenix broken now that KCI is banned? Is Death’s Shadow really where we want to be? All this and more!
