The rumors of modern's death have been greatly exaggerated. In this episode we dissect some of the recent large tournament results and see how interactive decks are competing in this proactive meta game.

We also look at the format to see what cards could be safely unbanned and if anything really needs to be banned for the health of the format.

Lastly, we talk about Grixis Delver and Temur Delver as our current decks of choice.

TurnOneThoughtseize is coming to you now from several remote locations, as we talk about the ever growing Aggressive threat in the modern format. Looking at Caleb Durward's recent run with Bant spirits, does this show a trend for more lower to the ground creature based midrange and tempo strategies? We dissect some recent tournament results and break down how you can still play what you want in this faster modern meta.
