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.
After several weeks of new and returning guests, the show return to its regular lineup of hosts and DJ. With a lull before the new set drops, a ton of knowledge is shared as the cast hits breaking bulk, pick of the week and clears a swath of listener emails. Topics include how to track price movements, finding rare booster packs, building relationships with GP vendors, and speculations on Commander 2017. We learn that Corbin is to blame for terrible deck names, and Jason does his best impression of Wizard’s customer service.
Today we are joined by Phil DeLuca of the Commanderin’ podcast for the Hour of Devastation set review. Since this set looks to be much spicier in Commander than Standard, we invited Phil on to share his perspective. Also, DJ tells perhaps the worst joke in BSB history.
