This week, after a delay to get Bryan off his death bed (really he just had a cold), we are back with the end of MTG Finance.  We talk about foils, sealed product, tracking your collection's value and most importantly where to sell your cards to maximize your value!   We then take a trip to Arena town to talk a little about the meta game breakdown and a lot about the decks we are playing.  Bryan switched from mono-red to play Gruul warriors and James is jamming some Judith.   We also talk about the different random version of Esper control that you play against.
