Josh Lee Kwai returns to discuss Commander 2017 and push DJ to the #2 guest spot. The cast discusses the make-up of the new decks and which cards might grow in value. Corbin gives a rundown of modern, and the crew covers breaking bulk and pick of the week with their guest.
This week Corbin returns and Jason finds himself in his first political office. Doug tries to remain awake through a pro-tour recap, and then wakes up with two red-hot breaking bulk picks. Listener emails cover the impact of finance “thought-leaders” on the market and how to adjust your EDH buying habits in light of more speculation on that format. Pick of the week covers an invocation that can be targeted.
The cast is down a host this week as Corbin is summoned to chew loudly near a national scrabble tournament. DJ and Jason answer the call and recap current trends. The long-awaited discussion on running a case in a card shop is covered. The patreon is getting very close to frosted tips, yet somehow farther away from DJ being a real cast member. Most shockingly, it appears as though Jason might actually be a loss for words without Corbin around to make fun of.
This week the cast discusses the current state of standard, including deck diversity, cheap deck option, and sneaking Gideon into sideboards. The power of suggestion drives Corbin to custard, and Jason briefly disappears from the cast. Listener emails cover Pucatrade and consumer confidence. DJ reviews some coming changes to the patreon, including chances to frost Jason’s hair. Strangely, breaking bulk features as many rares as pick up the week.
