Grindcast Episode 114: Adventuring with Throne of Eldraine

Whew, time for a normal episode! Throne of Eldraine has, of course, massively shaken up Standard but it’s also having some immediate impact on Modern! We check out the latest iterations of Mox Opal decks and go over just how much standard has progressed in the *checks watch* two days the set has been on Arena. Come hang out!

Thanks as always to Wave Sunray for our music.

Grindcast Episode 111: Loch-ing Down Legacy

We’ve been working hard to break legacy in half and we’re here to report the latest on delver, decks that lose to delver, and slow decks that ostensibly beat delver but probably don’t. Plus! Hella Throne of Eldraine spoilers.

Grindcast Episode 109: Nogaak Modern!

Holy crap, they really did it. Not only is Hogaak banned, but Faithless Looting is out and Stoneforge Mystic is in. What’s in store for Magic’s most reliably broken format? Are we talking fair fights galore? Or do we just need to look for new ways to cheat now that our graveyards are empty? Come find out!

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.

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

Holy hell, Jeremy won an open! He comes and hangs out with Chris and Collins as we talk about Hogaak, modern bans, and even a bit of theology. Don’t miss this one!

Grindcast Episode 98: SCG Season 1 Champ Abe Corrigan!!!

The first half of the year is behind us, and the Season 1 points leader is here to chat with us about the standard, the Invi, and his journey to the Players’ Championship. Come hang out!

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!
