GerryT thinks Dominaria is one of the deepest sets in years! Today he shows the results of his experiments with two black sleeper cards. Could the overlooked Torgaar, Famine Incarnate break into Modern? And is Lich's Mastery anything but a brewer's trap?
The full Dominaria set has been previewed and Gerry and Bryan are both excited! They each break down their Top 10 picks from the set, but it easily could have been a Top 30.
As always, they both have some picks that will surprise you.
GerryT's unearthed some oddball goodies this week! And when we say "Unearth," that's one of the cards in one of the decks. Also, what happens when you start with Legacy Death and Taxes and add black...and then blue?
First, Gerry and Bryan discuss Grand Prix Seattle, Gerry's Top 4 finish with R/B Aggro, and whether this Standard format succeeded!
The real meat of the episode is about Modern, Grand Prix Hartford, and how Bryan doesn't know what to play. Should he default to playing Karn again?
Dominaria is so stuffed with high-profile cards that a few with major potential were bound to slip through the cracks! Gerry Thompson turns his brewer's eye to three underrated cards that could make waves in Standard!
Gerry's latest adventures have brought him not just Magic Online gems but also Grand Prix and GPT brews! The best place for fresh decks just got even better!
There are format truths in Standard, Modern, and Legacy, but people don't always come to the same conclusions. In this episode, Gerry and Bryan agree on the truths of the formats, but take wildly different approaches to adapting to those truths.
How do aggro decks hold their ground against Walking Ballista and a bevy of removal? How do you get an edge in the Hymn to Tourach / Kolaghan's Command grindfest in Legacy? Humans and Hollow One are the best decks in Modern, but how do you beat them? How is everyone else going to beat them?
While this is "just" an episode about deck selection for the coming weeks, it's a fascinating look at how people can tackle the same problems in different ways.
With SCG Milwaukee just hours away, GerryT has a big reveal! But first you must go through all the dead decks he's gone by to get to the big winner! What would he sleeve up this weekend for Modern? Oh my...
Gerry Thompson has gathered some strange brews that are winning matches of Magic...somehow. Join Gerry for some great commentary on the kinds of decks that make this game so great! Who still needs a deck for SCG Milwaukee?
Gerry Thompson has some big words to say about Dominaria. There are new angles no one is seeing, and fortunately, Gerry is! He's got plenty of decklists to start Standard off with once we go back to Magic's future!
In what could be the greatest episode yet, Gerry and Bryan tackle the subject of greatness. What does it mean to be "great" at something? What does it take to get there? What are some traits shared by people with the capability for greatness?
Inspired by the movie "Whiplash," this is a can't miss "level up" episode, no matter your skill level.
Sometimes, the Magic Online results throw out a list that's just plain odd. Or, as GerryT shows today, ten of them. Maybe more than ten, if we go back and count. But we're kind of afraid to. We're pretty sure that Sphinx Tribal list at the end is warping spacetime with its weirdness...
After dipping his toes back into the waters of Modern, Gerry recounts his experience playing the innovative Human Company deck. What was good about the deck, and what fell short?
There are still more Dominaria previews to go over and one hour wasn't nearly enough last time. As it turns out, this podcast wasn't enough either!
Company decks, Humans decks, Mardu...how much field research did GerryT do for you this weekend at the Grand Prix? Tons! Get the expert's take on the Modern you'll find for yourself at SCG Cincinnati!
Gerry and Bryan waste some precious minutes bragging and talking about recent Standard and Modern trends, but then it's time for Dominaria! Classic characters as planeswalkers, new card types, beloved reprints, and homages position Dominaria to be the greatest Magic set of all time, and it's not enough to cover in just one episode.
Jund used to be the deck that wouldn't die, but Mardu is making a run at it these days! GerryT talks about which two decks he's taking to Grand Prix Phoenix and what the next level of Modern may be--assuming you can build the deck for it.
Gerry is back with commentary on a lot of decks across multiple formats, but the truth is...someone has gone too far. See Gerry talk about a deck so deep, so dark, that it absolutely must be stopped before it's too late.
Yeah, Jund is going to be a factor. But GerryT has the tech to do something about it! If you want to slay Jund on your way to the trophy, here are the decks you should be looking at! Good luck!
Standard still isn't solved after several weeks, which makes it a lot better than its recent brethren! Gerry Thompson has all the most important takeaways from Memphis and the decks that still matter here, including a surprise contender!
Standard is the talk of the town, and we've got a lot of Legacy to play at SCG Worcester tomorrow! Join two of the best and brightest as they talk about these formats before the big weekend!
