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.

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.
