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 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!

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!

Grindcast Episode 73: SCGcon Storytime Featuring Lee McLeod!

We made it out of Roanoke alive! And we brought stories! CCR and Collins are joined by honorary third member of the Grindcast (and cube championship participant) Lee McLeod to break down everything that happened over this past snowy invitational weekend, from 10 thousand dollar cube drafts to the 10 million dollar pro tour–excuse me, mythic championships.

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.
