  1. Two things:

    1. Do you plan to add time stamps to your segments? It would make your commentary much easier to follow, especially for mobile users.
    2. Cardsphere has gone live two days ago-will there be an article/review on that soon?

  2. Sphinx’s rise was 100% due to the New Perspectives deck SaffronOlive posted a week before the Pro Tour.
