  1. Gush is gone. The biggest surprise was what went with it. With such a massive shake up to the metagame we had to invite our spikiest of friends on the show to discuss the fallout of this huge decision, so we of course turned to Kendra, aka The Maverick Girl. Kendra can be found on: Twitch at https://www.twitch.tv/themaverickgirl Twitter at https://twitter.com/TheMaverickGal/ Cool Stuff Inc https://www.coolstuffinc.com/a/?action=search&page=1&author%5B%5D=Kendra+Smith&search_text= Support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/colorcommontaryYou Can Buy Playmats with our Logo on them here: https://www.inkedgaming.com/collections/artists/color-commontaryFollow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/ColorCommontaryLike us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/colorcommontary/Website: http://colorcommontary.com/Our theme song is courtesy of Ell, whose music is available at http://soundcloud.net/ellellell View the full article
  2. 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.

  5. 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?
