265: Me Like 2HG



On this episode, Maria and Meghan take a swim in the wonderfully pleasant waters of Two-Headed Giant! After the announcement of a new 2HG product called Battlebond, our hosts break down the basics of the world’s most two-headed format. What does it mean to draft 2HG? What are best practices for building sealed? And if Maria and Meghan could make up any 2HG mechanics, what would they create?! PLUS: Standard is alive and thriving! Wahoo! Listen in as Maria breathlessly raves about Vampires while Meghan enjoys a different…approach. (See what I did there?) ALSO: Flavor Text Theatre takes a trip from Kaladesh to Ixalan and Meghan has a hilarious slip of the tongue.

264: Oh, Bloody Elf! Jace is Back!



On this episode, Maria and Meghan break your brains with some HUGE Modern news! (To be read in a cockney accent:) “Oh, Bloody Elf, Jace is back!” Our hosts break down what the Modern unbannings of Jace, the Mind Sculptor and Bloodbraid Elf and what that could mean for the format. PLUS: Maria is on Cloud 9 after Bogles takes down Grand Prix Toronto, Meghan walks us through her top-decking triumphs on the Team Modern Super League, and a For the N00bs that helped Meghan level-up her sideboarding.

263: Don’t Prove Yourself, Improve Yourself!



On this episode, Maria and Meghan welcome back Amateur Pro Greg (@Magic_Michelp) to the show to talk about his first Pro Tour experience at PT Rivals of Ixalan! Greg walks us through the trials of picking a deck, what it’s like to open Tetzimoc (!!) in your first-ever Pro Tour draft, and his favorite things about Spain. PLUS: Insight on Lantern Control, 5-Color Humans, Hollow One, and other sweet Modern decks that grabbed the spotlight on Magic’s biggest stage. Our hosts also chat about the upcoming Team Modern Super League (go Team MNVA!) , play “Guess that Flavor Text” as Meghan tries to stump our chumps, and MtA kicks off its February Patron Pledge Drive with the rallying call of 612-FOSSILZ! …Seriously, call our number and leave a message. It’ll be great!
