The regular episode for this week is a meditation on the Human condition, with deep ponderings on what is a counterspell. Is a discard spell a counterspell? What the hell is tempo?

Our Spice Rack is the stone cold nuts mirror breaker for a very prominent matchup so don't miss it at the end of the cast!

The first week of Dominaria's Modern legality was very eventful. Cards from the new set are popping up everywhere!

Adam over at Brew City MTG broke Teshar already so we run that down.

We talk about SCG Atlanta, switching decks, picking land destruction, a sweet Dominaria Spice Rack card and more!

Nothing is sweeter than a homecoming, except when the homecoming is to Dominaria and the set looks bonkers amazing.

We (mostly Zach) winnowed the list from the 40 cards I picked to a much more reasonable but still hefty list of cards to keep an eye on.

The set looks *BONKERS*. Do yourself a favor and play it.

We have the pleasure of unleashing unto the world Torgarr, Famine Incarnate from the upcoming Magic: The Gathering set, Dominaria!

 

Torgarr, Famine Incarnate

6BB

Legendary Creature — Avatar

As an additional cost to cast this spell, you may sacrifice any number of creatures. This spell costs {2} less to cast for each creature sacrificed this way.

When Torgaar, Famine Incarnate enters the battlefield, up to one target player’s life total becomes half their starting life total, rounded down.

7/6
 
We cover some possible homes in Standard, Brawl, a fair Modern shell and, of course, a few spicy takes on ways to combo off with some sweet older cards!

* This episode is ALL spoilers so if you are avoiding them, don't listen to this for a few weeks * 

A bunch of Dominaria got spoiled due to an internal mix up. Normally we don't discuss leaks but in this case since the information wasn't stolen or anything and the doc ended up being posted officially we will hit some of what caught our eye.

(Spoiler of the spoiler: the set looks insane!)

Sometimes we hit, sometimes we miss. Turns out Jace is kinda meh and Bloodbraid Elf is our new overlord!

Jund is back in a big way but is that the best home...? Elves, Goblins, decks, and a weird Spice Rack card.

Modern Pro Tour happened. Lantern won. How did we get there? Where are we now? What even is life?

We go over the Pro Tour results, review the nuts and bolts of playing against Lantern, strategies for successful sideboarding and as a special treat, since this was (obviously) recorded prior to the B&R you get to listen to our 25% correct predictions toward the end.

All that and a charming Spice Rack card!

We go over the weirdly short history of the Modern Pro Tour, make some realistic predictions, some wild speculation and have a *totally fair* Magic card as our Spice Rack thanks to an intrepid Redditor...

In this episode, "Mr. Ninth Place" and I talk about Tribal decks! 5c Humans and UG Merfolk had great showings at the last SCG event so I brewed up Tribal Warriors with a bunch of new tools and cover some of the other "almost there" tribes.

There were some rumblings of unbannings with the last announcement and we speculate about what that could mean for the future of our beloved format!

There's Gitrog Monster Loam Pox, a sweet playmat giveaway and a NEW INTRO SONG FEATURING Shael Riley, Beefy, Ty Guenly and Tanner of The freakin' Grammar Club remixed by me!

This week is the return of the popular "Live Brew" episode format where we pick a card and make a deck around it. Our choice this time: Cryptic Serpent! What's better than a 6/5 for 7? A 6/5 for 2!

I also tested this deck on Twitch for the Saturday Morning Breakfast Stream. You can watch the replay HERE.

Stay tuned after the regular show for our interview with Ari Lax where we delve into Death's Shadow: past, present and future!
