Sleep is for the weak. At least that is what Jason and Marcel want you all to believe as they both pick the first week of February to have their kids. Marcel has to bow out this week due to child-related obligations so the gang gets a very special guest to fill in – Mr. Frank Lepore (@FrankLepore), hot off of his first ever PT where he finished Top 8 which we hear is pretty good. Frank has a lot to talk about and the gang wastes no time interrogating him. Want to know the future of Modern? Look no further.

The Eldrazi are great, but their names could be a lot more distinct. World Crusher? Reality Bruiser? I sometimes think the price of Thought-Knot Seer is so high because it’s the only Eldrazi people are able to identify and buy on purpose without trying to buy something else. The gang keeps getting tripped up on the names. Listen and laugh at them as they get confused. Come for their confusion, stay for one of the most insightful episodes in a long while. I figure like 10% of our total listeners read the show notes and those who do are the most dedicated. I don’t know why I preach to the choir. Still, I’m making the case for this episode whether you like it or not, so strap in. We discuss Standard and Modern and read some e-mails and make fun of Corbin and he tries to make fun of us back and we laugh at him and we even do Pick of the Week. Remember that segment? Well it’s back! You knew there was a reason this was your favorite podcast. It’s because it’s the best. Now stop reading like a nerd and put our audio entertainment in your head holes already. Brainstorm Brewery OUT.
Weird intro. It’s hard to know what will make the final cut.

There were lots of happenings the last few weeks and since we didn’t get to talk about anything last week due to the set review, we decided to jimmy jam everything into one action-packed episode and get caught up. There were prerelease weekend shenanigans, GP Oakland was a thing, multiple bannings happened and Reddit showed how bad they are at reading comprehension and how good they are at pillorying innocent WotC employees. There’s a lot to cover, so why not stop reading the show notes because reading is for nerds, and sit back and put this podcast in your head holes. You’re about to be taken to value town.

Bannings? What do they mean?
