293: Meghan’s Legion



On this episode, Maria and Meghan welcome Amateur Pro (and newly minted TWO-TIME Pro Tour competitor) Greg back to the show!

SPOILER ALERT: This quiz goes very poorly for one of our hosts! PLUS: Standard chat ahead of the World Championship, brief Modern chat ahead of Grand Prix Detroit, and a Flavor Text Theatre that leaves both Maria and Greg pretty stumped.
