Thanks Botvinik. What are you siding out?

Ravager Shops players: what is your approach to sideboarding against Bazaar decks? The lists I've seen lately are on 4 Needle, 4 Leyline. If that's your package, what are you cutting?

I've been experimenting with cutting my lock pieces. The Bazaar decks seem to have enough mana to play through them, and the play pattern of "FoV your Hate Piece & Mox, leave you with a Sphere that's taxing your own shit" is so devastating.

(I wrote this.) Thanks for sharing this, Sam. This was an enjoyable project for me to work on. 7000 words, so I wouldn’t begrudge anyone for not reading. But likewise, I’d love anyone’s feedback.

The fuck were they thinking, building card disadvantage into a Planeswalker answer? I know that’s just what Masticores do, but this has to be a nonstarter.

. . . I’ll still get a playset for my Eldrazi collection.

Is WotC mismanaging the B&r list? In my opinion, they've been pretty responsive to issues the past few years, and dealt with Karn, Forge, Narset, Lurrus, etc in a timely manner. Certainly they're doing a better job managing us than they are Legacy, where the hole is dug way too deep at this point.

WotC is actually doing the damage with the cards it prints. I appreciate their proactive B&R moves, but it's still bad for the format if every new set introduces cards that need to be restricted. And a community-run format doesn't really solve that.

(I have thoughts on proxies, but won't add them here as the thread isn't exactly about proxies.)

If y’all could just move this back to next weekend so people actually watch our stream, that’d be great.
