Grindcast Episode 106: Strategy Mailbag with Lee McLeod!

Every once in a while our Patreon questions start to pile up, and rather than letting such a valuable resource go to waste we save them up for a quiet week with no major tournaments on the horizon. And that’s this week! We’re diving deep into some overarching questions of Magic strategy, giving our takes on breaking metas, building decks, and how best to improve your game for the long term. Come hang out!

Grindcast Episode 105: Guess who’s Gaak? Gaak again.

Well, here we are. Again. The most heavily played card at MC Barcelona? Leyline of the Void, and it wasn’t particularly close. This week we’re talking about how to deal with our new (old) graveyard overlord, what the modern hellscape will look like for the next few weeks, and the best way to exploit Hogaak to get an edge in legacy. Come hang 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 103: How to Stomp Standard

With SCG Worcester finished up, we have at least an idea of what the standard meta is looking like. With Risen Reefs and Nexuses of Fate galore, this is a powerful format. You need to be doing something powerful to keep up… maybe seven power?

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 100: Live from CCR’s Bedroom!

Holy crap, we finally made it! 100 episodes in and still going strong. This week we’re talking about new patreon rewards, Hogaak’s impact on modern, and three mana 7/6’s. Come hang out!

Grindcast Episode 99: Modern Horizons Top 8s (With Lee McLeod!)

Just in time for M20 spoilers, we’re finally going over Modern Horizons! Lee comes and hangs out with Chris and Collins to go over their top 8 picks from the new set. Thrill at our car-by-card analyses, most of which include the phrase “once they ban something from Hogaak…” Exciting times!

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!
