Sadly this episode we are one Dirk short of a full cast due to grad school holding him down and beating him. But to replace him, we brought along two guest hosts! We have a half-Dirk veteran, our old buddy Bill Bloodworth (@SqueeGoblnNabob) joining us again! And the other half of Dirk is our buddy from GP Charlotte and GP Pittsburgh, JT Kohnen (@NerdPop140)! You know and love him as CyberPunkOtaku01 on the forums.
So what were we actually talking about this episode? Well of course the Prerelease results were the first thing. Everyone but Chewie is here to tell you all about how they did and what they played. Chewie missed his first Prerelease in no one knows how long, but at least Brian’s sealed pool still thinks it’s a Ravnica block.
After that, we had to talk about all the cards that are rotating out of Standard. It’s not something that we usually talk about, but it’s a tradition here on The Mana Pool! Every rotation we rant and rave about all the crap we don’t have to hear about any more, and it’s great! Since Bill and JT pay attention to Standard, and Mike and Brian do too, it’s a really good discussion.
A moment of silence please for JT’s Deadeye Navigator deck. It will be missed.
