GP Indy And The Diversity Of Modern


In Episode 37 Davis and John divulge on their Grand Prix Indianapolis weekend, with tales of good times, solid tournament finishes, and Davis's RPTQ. We talk about some different Red archetypes that made a splash on the weekend across the world, celebrate Brandon Burton "Sandydogmtg"'s win, and break into some questions about Burn and rogue archetypes. This one covers the gamut, and as usual is closed out by 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:
