Episode 40 - Skredded Summary
In Episode 40, John and Davis discuss Skred’s big win at GP Dallas and its place in the Modern format. We then dive more into Modern, talking about various fast decks and how Burn is toeing the line as well as the different builds and what their differences implicate. Mono Red Burn in Standard and Mardu Vehicles are covered too, with a study of what we think could attack weaknesses in the tier 1 group. Lastly, we get into our usual Mailbag, Brewers Corner, and Loose Change, divulging on some of our upcoming tournaments in #GPMIL and the Salt Lake City RPTQ
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 (see further down for Show Notes):
