Color Commontary 128: Penultimate Masters

November 20, 2018

Ultimate masters is being spoiled the day after this episode goes up, and sadly, we're both going to visit family and won't be able to bring you a set review till next week. Until then we talk about one of the hottest // coolest spells being introduced to the format, then take a bit of a walk down memory lane while we discuss Temur Tron and a white combat trick we'd all but forgotten about.

Color Commontary 125: Robots and Tokens and Combat, Oh My!

October 30, 2018

It's been ages since we've gotten some good old fashioned fan questions on the show, so when Jonah wrote in asking about removing atog from affinity, we simply couldn't resist! They also sent in a list asking for feedback and we let them hear our thoughts on one of the format's most iconic decks.

After that it's a discussion about the RW tokens deck that Janicestone piloted to a challenge win, it's got some interesting synergies that were just too good to pass up.
