Questionable if these guys actually play modern

By redteerex - Oct 05 2019
Read more
2/3 hosts almost certainly do not play modern. Maybe Marshall does since alotta times he’s the only one that has a clue about cards or synergies. It’s definitely not a passion project. Prep clearly isn’t there, chemistry is medium at best. Been going downhill for a good while. Feels genuinely that modern is the last format these dudes play, and they’re trapped doing a podcast on the format since that’s what they started on.
