How to Win at the Pro Tour + What to Play in Every Format



What does it take to win at a Pro Tour? And how do you get yourself there in the first place? Amateur Pro Greg is back on the show to detail his epic run at Pro Tour Thunder Junction where he finished in 17th place. He’ll share the story behind his powerful Standard deck, how he managed to never lose a match in Draft — and what it was like playing against World Champions! PLUS: Greg runs us through a primer of what decks to play in every format and sits down for a game of Flavor Text Theatre: MadLibs (joined by a voiceless Maria, sitting on the ground, writing words on a whiteboard. You’ll see.)
