Grindcast Episode 116: Oko is Loco

Just a week into Throne of Eldraine and we’re playing Oko in…every deck. In every format. Is he the best planeswalker ever printed? Time will tell, but for now he’ll likely be the most ubiquitous. We also talk a bit about CCR’s run to mythic with standard reanimator, and how to goose modern. Come hang out!

Thanks as always to Wave Sunray for our music.

Grindcast Episode 115: Can we Beat Golos?

The field at SCG Philly was full of the dead, so we’re breaking down what’s working and what isn’t in a Golos-dominated standard. Plus, how about this Mox Opal-dominated Modern? Magic’s two biggest formats have two clear best decks, and we’re breaking down how we see this playing out. Come hang out!

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!

Grindcast Episode 112: Our Standard Rotation Rest in Peace Show

As with every standard rotation these days, we are losing a TON of cards. Join us as we go over all our old favorites and all our old…less than favorites that we’ll never get to play with again. We promise this is useful for future analysis and not just an excuse for reminiscing.
