It's new set time and what a doozy this one was. Hopefully Wizards continues with products like this as Modern Horizons is primed to shake up an already wide open metagame.

With the recent bannings the meta has been shaken to its very core. This week we delve into lists from the most recent challenge to see what new spice can be found in the wake of some unprecedented bannings in pauper. An old favorite of Mike's as well as an out of left field Blue/Red deck are among the 5 different lists we're highlighting this week.

Here it is, we took a week off to bring you a real experiment in the format of our podcast. This week we're on the eve of a B&R announcement and wanted to talk about the discourse surrounding it from a slightly more academic perspective than we usually take.
Recommended viewing prior to this. Yes this is 6 hours of content, but we do strongly urge you watch them at some point.

It's that time again! A whole new set, new toys for the format and most relevant, a new collection of takes on things entering the format! We've tried a return to the old format for set reviews where we cut a lot of the chaff to make for a more streamlined review experience, thanks to everyone who let us know the old format wasn't working for you!

With Tax Day just having passed us by, we figured there's no better time to talk about a classic standby in other formats: Death and Taxes. What would some of the classic pieces of this deck look like if they were shifted to common? It might have been a pipe dream once upon a time, but with uncommon planeswalkers, who knows what the future could hold?

Turns out all it needed was a little drop of blue to put up a 12th place finish in last week's challenge. Check out the list and a bit of a trip down memory lane with Mike and Adrian.
