For episode 47, Geoff Moes (@ThallidTosser on Twitter), Nat Moes (@GrandpaBelcher), and Josh Chapple (@joshchapple) talk with Jerry Yang. Jerry is a longtime Team Serious member and a big influence on many teammates’ love of fun Magic and incredible food. If you want credible, he also has multiple StarCityGames Power 9 Top 8 appearances to his name. But who are we kidding, you don’t listen to this podcast for credibility.

    @desolutionist I was being sarcastic - as in every set seems to push blue even further over the top. I'm a notorious blue hater, so I'd never actually want to see that.

    How about something basic like:
    Volcanic Mana Source
    Land - Island Mountain
    When ~this~ comes into play, target opponent draws a card (or scry 2 or 3?)
    T: Add U
    T: Add R

  • @thewhitedragon69 said in What could replace the fetches/duals as a default mana base:

    @desolutionist No, you give it island so you can run it as a 1-of and fetch it. But only make it for blue, not the other colors. Because...blue.

    I don’t follow your logic. The point is to not play fetches.
