With Vegas only a week away, the cast gets hyped for the grand return and discusses their Vegas plans. Standard discussion covers potential shakeups from bannings and Hour of Devastation; this draws the usual ire from DJ. Breaking Bulk runs a wide range from casual core set rares to intro deck picks. Pick of the week focuses on some EDH picks with the new 2017 tribal decks on the horizon. Also, find out which cast member has no love for Star Trek, the Next Generation. Join us for Brainstorm Brewery.
Corbin is tired from PT Amonkhet and Jason hijacks the start of the cast. The evolving standard meta and best moment in player interviews are discussed. Someone gives Doug an excuse to talk about Pokemon. Breaking bulk covers odd tokens and old core sets. Jason talks about which EDH decks Amonkhet cards are influencing.
This week we check in on the cast’s prerelease experience, and hear which cast member is least helpful in their stores whenever they vend. Jason shares some second-level thoughts on what will be good in EDH in light of Protean’s hulk unbanning. DJ gets two shots at breaking bulk. Like everyone else, we were blown out by the late standard bannings, as this was recorded on Monday.
Today we are incredibly lucky to be joined by Brian Braun-Duin for our Amonkhet set review. Brian shares his insight into which cards are poised to have a large first weekend, and which ones are traps. Join us for a look at the important cards in the set.
