Color Commontary 152: The Post-Gush Era

Color Commontary 152: The Post-Gush Era

May 21, 2019

Gush is gone. The biggest surprise was what went with it. With such a massive shake up to the metagame we had to invite our spikiest of friends on the show to discuss the fallout of this huge decision, so we of course turned to Kendra, aka The Maverick Girl.

Color Commontary 151: Hypernormalisation in Pauper

Color Commontary 151: Hypernormalisation in Pauper

May 15, 2019

Here it is, we took a week off to bring you a real experiment in the format of our podcast. This week we're on the eve of a B&R announcement and wanted to talk about the discourse surrounding it from a slightly more academic perspective than we usually take.

Recommended viewing prior to this. Yes this is 6 hours of content, but we do strongly urge you watch them at some point.

Hypernormalisation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fh2cDKyFdyU

All watched over by machines of loving grace

Color Commontary 149: War of the Spark Set Review

April 23, 2019

It's that time again! A whole new set, new toys for the format and most relevant, a new collection of takes on things entering the format! We've tried a return to the old format for set reviews where we cut a lot of the chaff to make for a more streamlined review experience, thanks to everyone who let us know the old format wasn't working for you!

Color Commontary 148: The Tax Man Cometh

Color Commontary 148: The Tax Man Cometh

April 16, 2019

With Tax Day just having passed us by, we figured there's no better time to talk about a classic standby in other formats: Death and Taxes. What would some of the classic pieces of this deck look like if they were shifted to common? It might have been a pipe dream once upon a time, but with uncommon planeswalkers, who knows what the future could hold?
