    Ancestral Recall #27 - Tomfidence

    Mike and Roman read Jon Becker's article on confidence, or in this case, "Tomfidence." The article focuses on PTQ player Tom Kelleher and why he had such outstanding confidence in competitive Magic tournaments. Mike and Roman examine the question of not why should you have confidence, but rather why shouldn't you?

Flores fans rejoice

A podcast where Mike Flores can talk about himself for an hour, what's not to love? Honestly, I love this show. The combo of grizzled veteran and rising star is great, and unlike some podcasts the audio quality is excellent. Worth a listen simply for the banter, and the content is fantastic too. Definitely my favorite MtG podcast.

Great show

Great idea for a show- reading old Magic Articles and discussing their impact/ modern relevance. Only reason this isn't 5 stars is that the release schedule is inconsistent, and when reading decklists, they just blow thru them like crazy, which is usually fine for me (as someone whose played for years), but when they did an article on a time period I wasn't playing (Time Spiral) it was impossible to follow because I didn't know what the cards did. They don't need to say what each card does, but going a little slower so you can differentiate cards and pause to look up would be a great improvement

Draw 3 cards or force opponent to draw 3 cards

Great podcast! Teaches so much about traditional magic strategy and history. Absolutely target yourself with this card, and beneficial to target your opponents as well.
