Episode 122 – Deck Docs Post Strix Meta Edition

The new format overlords have been solidified for a few weeks and you still won’t let go of your old deck. We’re here to help! In this episode we cover some broad guidelines for what works and what doesn’t then provide some lists we’ve doctored to help escape the Stockholm Syndrome of thinking a 30% matchup against Heliod is a-OK.

Episode 119 – Stop, Hammertime!

We’re tackling a deckbuilding conundrum in this episode. Can you take a meme deck like Modern Hammertime and turn it into a real contender? If so, how?

Enter: the Elephant! We dig into this approach to thinking about card choices and deck composition and bang out something that we’re happy to have in the tool box.

Episode 116 – “Companion. Is it good or is it whack?”

 

Ikoria is upon us and the Companion mechanic is causing shockwaves in every constructed format. So…is it good or is it whack?

Join Ari and I as we dig into Companion, brushwaggs and more!

(We also hit some highlights from the set AND put together an infinite mana combo with a card I can guarantee you haven’t heard of before!)

Episode 114 – Sideboarding for Fun and Profit

“Great players that sideboard badly lose more than medium players that sideboard well.”

Sideboarding is an essential skill both at the deckbuilding level and for tournament success. In this episode we cover some general points on the subject along with a card by card case study of the sideboard configuration that took Ahren’s TemUro deck from a 2-3 zero to 5-0 hero.

More Real Talk about Pioneer, an Underworld Breach deck that should be on your radar, BOGO Spice Rack cards and more!
