Rituals and Fast Mana with Cyrus Corman-Gill
Dark Ritual defined a class of cards that make more mana than they cost to play. In honor to the black "boon" we now refer to these types of cards as "rituals." Decks can do powerful things with bursts of fast mana, and Legacy showcases the breadth of possiblities when mana is available way ahead of schedule. Joining the show is Storm player and fellow Podcaster, Cyrus Corman-GIll. He knows a lot about casting Dark Ritual, and he's well versed in putting fast mana to use. Check it out!
Reanimator with Eric Landon

Joining the show is MTGO star ewlandon, aka Eric Landon, known for his persistent trophy leader status. We talk reanimate, entomb, faithless looting, and the Deathrite ban all to get to the core of one of Legacy's most consistent and powerful combo decks. Check it out!
The evolution of Miracles with Sam Roukas
On this episode, we return our discussion to the top control deck of Legacy. In spite of bans, card printings that challenge the strength of counterspells, and a format shift towards big mana and ultra-grindy strategies, Miracles persevered and won GP Richmond, reclaiming its Tier 1 status. What all has happened in the deck's 6 year history that shaped it's evolution and gotten us to this point? Where will the deck go in the future? Joining the show to answer these questions is Miracles steadfast, Sam Roukas.
12 and Eldrazi Post with Collins Mullen
For years, decks seeking to utilize the massive mana generating capabilities of the "post" lands have existed in Legacy. Battle for Zendikar gave the strategy an early game plan, and since then multiple iterations of the deck have brought us to a point where big mana is strong enough to hold its own. On this episode, SCG powerhouse Collins Mullen joins the show to discuss the deck and its many variants. He tells us all about his and his teammates' successes playing the deck, and his thoughts on future iterations.
Wasteland with Jadine Klomparens
Nonbasic lands beware, the fun police of both 5-color and Tron-style decks alike is a lynchpin piece of the Legacy format. Joining the show is accomplished player and content writer, Jadine Klomparens. In this episode, she shows off her understanding and tactical analysis of tempo decks and land destruction. Join us as Legacy's Allure discusses format powerhouse, Wasteland.
Sylvan Library with Jody Keith
Legends had a number of crazy cards that defied the color pie and caused templating nightmares. On this episode of Legacy's Allure we're talking all about Sylvan Library, not only its crazy templating, but also how incredibly powerful it is! Joining us to talk about Sylvan Library is Lands master and Legacy specialist Jody Keith. Jody shows off some of the powerful interactions, decks, and quirky interactions the card offers and helps explain how this anomoly of card design impacts Magic's greatest format.
