    #90 – How To Win Over 80% Of Your Matches – feat. Marc Eric Vogt

    #90 – How To Win Over 80% Of Your Matches – feat. Marc Eric Vogt

    This is an episode I've been looking forward to for a long time. Marc Eric Vogt is not only one of the very first people I got to know when I started playing Legacy ~15 years ago, I also feel overwhelmingly confident in saying that he is one of the best, if not the best Legacy player I ever met.



    Marc recently picked up MTGO again after an 8-year hiatus and immediately jumped to completely anihilating the competition. After two months of grinding and streaming, he is sitting at an absolutely mindblowing winrate of over 80%. He has won the AnziD Lotus Box Invitational and a Challenge, has Top8'ed another and just last weekend finished Top4 in the giant Mana Traders tournament.



    But what is Marc's success built on? Callum and I invited him for one of our deepest dives on how to be a winning Legacy player. This is not only (but especially) for those who want to learn the underappreciated art of Control-Fu, but also for those who want to understand game on a deeper level. Marc offers incredible advice (and some bad takes on Sauerkraut) that's gonna be invaluable to anyone looking to take their game to the next level.

    #89 – Commander Legends Review + Top5 Legacy Decks

    #89 – Commander Legends Review + Top5 Legacy Decks

    Prelude: Callum hates the Monarch mechanic. 



    Today's show starts off with a therapy session for Callum & Julian, who have both been recently exposed to the power of MINOTAURS in Legacy. Recounting how they both got destroyed by Legacy's hottest new way to break Didggerido, they dissect the deck known as Thunderbluff 3.0. 



    After looking at a couple of recent tournament results, Julian proposes the Top 5 decks of Legacy, while Callum suggests a couple of decks that are also up there, rounding out the most likely decks you're gonna encounter in a competitive environment. Afterwards we move on to our review of Commander Rising, covering all the parts that will, might or probably won't see play. Did we mention that Callum hates the Monarch mechanic?

    #88 – Vintage Vibes with Justin Gennari

    Joining us for a special Vintage-themed episode is Justin "IamActuallyLvL1" Gennari. Justin has made a name for himself as the premier streamer of the format, and is responsible for a ton of new blood entering the format over the last couple of month. Together we explore one of the most booming formats on Magic Online right now, as well as the over 18,000 matches that were recently analyzed by Justin and his crew of dedicated data collectors!



    If you've always been curious about what Vintage actually how, what the gameplay is like and how to best get into the format on Magic Online, this episode is for you! We roughly outline the major archetypes of the format, recent developments and which decks are up and coming again. We also discuss Callum's and Julian's runs in Eternal Weekend Vintage, as well as Julian's victory in the Vintage Challenge, and do a deep dive on one of Vintage's most exciting decks, Paradoxical Outcome.

    #87 – Review of All 8-2 or Better EW Legacy Lists!

    #87 – Review of All 8-2 or Better EW Legacy Lists!

    Eternal Weekend 2020 is in the books, and with over 1,600 entrants between the three main events, this has been one of THE highlights in the 15+ year history of our beloved Legacy format. Following WotC's decision to pair entry into the format with access to (almost) ALL cards on Magic Online, one of the biggest breathes of fresh air hit the format as people rallied to enter the Karkas, Rishadan Port and Maze of Ith championships.



    On this episode Callum and Julian cover both the spirit and results of these three events, as they go about the Top16 of each event and some of the most interesting deckbuilding choices they can find. [mtg_card]Garruk, Primal Hunter[/mtg_card] and[mtg_card] Retrofitter Foundry[/mtg_card] in Snow, Ground Seal in Oops All Spells and many more things to shake up a format...that is yet still dominated by RUG Delver and 4/5c Snowko. Still, the glorious return of Death & Taxes into the limelight is one of the most positive takeaways from this weekend, and we're looking forward to how things are gonna develop.



    We also show you what you haven't seen on coverage yet. Following the communitiy's effort to map out all 8-2 and better lists from the vent, we bring you a much larger metagame overview than just the Top16 lists!

    #86 – If You’re Blocking, You’re Losing

    With Matt back from his secret mission, he joins Callum and Julian for a discussion of all things Legacy (and a tiny bit of Vintage!) that have happened recently: Legacy Showcase Challenge results (including Julian's Top4 with Elves), Marc Vogt's Bant Miracles and our recommendations for both Legacy and Vintage in the upcoming Eternal Weekend Online! Speaking of which, definitely don't miss this chance to get your "god account" with (almost) all the cards in Magic!



    We also cover our thoughts on the recently released Secret Lair: Walking Dead, both with regards to the playability of the those cards as well as the general concept of Secret Lairs.



    Bonus content: Matt asks you to anonymously submit your questions about everything you always wanted to know about dentistry, but never dared to ask ;-)

    #85 – EPIC Weekend Results & Zendikar Rising Review

    #85 – EPIC Weekend Results & Zendikar Rising Review

    There's these rare weekends where the MTGO metagame gets entirely anihialted by a single player. With JPA93 currently in an identity crisis, this task has been handed to Bryant "Bryant_Cook" Cook, who completely CRUSHED both the Legacy Super PTQ on Saturday, and the Legacy Challenge on Sunday. Callum and I go over these epic results, as well as how Hogaak might actually be the biggest threat to the currently metagame!



    In the second half of the show we scan the upcoming Zendikar Rising set for Legacy playables. We are pretty sure about one of the cards making a big splash in a tier1 deck, and then proceed to go over a ton of "maybes."
