Attacking GP Portland and SCG Regionals


In Episode 36 Davis and John talk about their past few tournament weekends which included a Top 8 finish at SCG Regionals by Davis and a Top 16 finish by John. Davis also attended GP Portland and met one of our listeners, both of whom made Day 2 and just missed out narrowly on cash. We do a giveaway, get into some Gameday successes by listeners, and go over some of the cool Red decks that made a splash at big events this past weekend. Later we discuss future plans for GP Indy, Louisville, Atlanta, answer a reader mailbag question about Atarka Red, showcase a RW Control deck in the brewers corner, and close things out with film and music discussion.

We’re looking to expand our current segments going forward, so please stay tuned for some positive development. Lastly, if you have any suggestions please let us know, you can find us here:

(55:30) Mailbag

Austin Baird - "Thoughts on splashing green in Standard for Atarka's Command to give you 20 burn spells? A friend of mine had decent success at Gamedays this weekend with his deck. Seems like it could be really good with the right shell."
