    I really enjoyed that, thanks. And not just the grammar nonsense. Vintage non-nonsense was also good.

    Thanks for doing this guys! It wS highly enjoyable as always. I'm always excited when a new episode goes up.

    I am also intrigued about Eldrazi tribal. I wonder if a lot of people will play it at champs in an attempt to top 8 as well as qualify for the non-powered prize.

  • Hey guys! I really enjoyed the cast, very entertaining and informative :)

    I'm very curious about the BUG deck you talked about in one of the segments... does anyone have a list they could post? I've been wanting to play a Null Rod BUG list for sometime and haven't had the chance to in the current meta.

    Keep on rocking!!

  • Hey, here's the BUG deck Josh played. He and I built it at Nat's table the night before. It's based on my Champs deck from last year, which in turn was heavily based on Justin Becker's list from (I think?) NYSE that year:

    3x Grafdigger’s Cage
    2x Nature’s Claim
    1x Engineered Explosives
    1x Virulent Plague
    1x Dread of Night
    1x Tormod’s Crypt
    1x Forest
    1x Ravenous Trap
    1x Abrupt Decay
    1x Dismember
    1x Murderous Cut
    1x Null Rod

    I watched most of his games and we talked about the deck after. We agreed therapy was bad and would cut it. I'd like to see a third Strix, that card is great right now. JTMS was also an underperformer. I might try -2 therapy, -1 JTMS, +1 strix, +2 thoughtseize right now and see how that plays. I'd also like to play a Malicious Affliction, maybe in the sideboard over the murderous cut. Snuff out would also be fine there. I think Josh just found a Cut first so that was that.

  • lhc I think you also mentioned to me once that you were looking at jamming in a 4th Deathrite at some point.

  • Thanks so much for posting the list Ihc! I really like the looks of it! I'll be throwing it together in paper (and hopefully on mtgo soon).

  • I just finished this yesterday and I really enjoyed it.

    I genuinely hope to remember the singular form of Eldrazi: Eldrazo.

  • These podcasts are fantastic. Loved the caveman lawyer reference at the end.
