Pete Ingram joins The Crew!

The Crew discusses their Top-8 cards from Ravnica Allegiance. While some cards are certainly agreed upon, our lists came out very different. Who do you think got it right?

This episode was recorded on 1/15, prior to going live on MTGO and MTGA. It will be interesting to see who's off to a hot start after RNA went live this past weekend and who may be right going into the first IRL weekend coming up.
