  3. We're hopping in a time machine this week, but first we've gotta talk the future of mulligans with the proposed changes for Mythic Championship London. Then it's a trip down memory lane to revisit a deck of the past, goblins, the former midrange beast has been sadly missing for some time so we're gonna get to the bottom of where things went wrong.

  4. It's been a while since we've seen mono black control, a former vanguard of the format really have a solid place in the metagame.

  16. Ultimate masters is being spoiled the day after this episode goes up, and sadly, we're both going to visit family and won't be able to bring you a set review till next week.

  17. Pauper Leagues are going competitive. You'll be able to go from a regular pauper player all the way to the pro tour if you want!

  19. It's been ages since we've gotten some good old fashioned fan questions on the show, so when Jonah wrote in asking about removing atog from affinity, we simply couldn't resist! They also sent in a list asking for feedback and we let them hear our thoughts on one of the format's most iconic decks. After that it's a discussion about the RW tokens deck that Janicestone piloted to a challenge win, it's got some interesting synergies that were just too good to pass up.
