Mike is out moving to the frigid wasteland of Boston Mass, so it’s up to our handsome hero Adrian Gwarzalez and his guest star Aaron Rubin to try and rescue the show from the inevitable ratings slide.

We discuss Mono Blue Delver at length and learn a little bit about Aaron, a local player.

This week, no deck techs, no maybeboard, just a reflection on the past year in pauper and what it brought to the format and where we’re heading. Mike and Adrian also make some New Year’s Resolutions about pauper. Also of note, this will be the last episode for a while where we’re together, so look forward to more developments to compensate for the inevitable technical issues to follow.

Back from his trip, Mike’s highly sleep deprived and ready to discuss pauper again. This week’s deck tech is a boros tokens list looking to crash in for that lethal alpha strike. The maybeboard is a spicy Ice Age orc who can ramp you at a cost. This week’s episode is rounded out by a discussion on the issue of meta perception and how the league format changes the way we see results.

We’re talking Turbo Fog, covering the list featured in our collaborative video over on his channel. After that we talk about a spicy little flyer you may have overlooked in Eternal Masters (it’s not drake, don’t worry) and finish things off with an open chat about nostalgia, Will himself and a little bit of last minute discussion about the recent bans, or rather lack there of.

This week we recorded a little early so we could interview Alex Ullman of gatheringmagic.com! Sadly the audio on his end got corrupted so we had to work what little magic we could on the audio from our end. It’s not pretty, but we felt the actual discussion was too good to miss. Hopefully in the future we’ll have a cleaner audio recording set up for guests!
