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.
