Fantastic resource for staying up to date on rapidly shifting metagames. I find this especially useful if I'm prepping for a competition but didn't have a ton of time to prep in person!

Nate and Zac react to the banned and restricted announcement!

Hey friends! Nathan and I have settled on our first goal for our patrons! When we hit $100 Monthly we will be featuring deck techs and deconstructions for the top 8 most played legacy decks. Our hope is that this will be of use to legacy veterans as well as a nice entry point for folks new to the format. The goal is to be as comprehensive as possible, build options, match-ups with the other top 8 decks and of course extensive sideboard discussion. Of course, we will be offering some raffles in the next couple of weeks for out patrons as well! We’re excited to be able to offer this to our legacy community, and moreso excited to have you listening.

This week we talk about the rest of Amonkhet and then our Predictions for Monday’s banned and restricted announcement.
