I am Ego ,

I thought this was about tribal human EDH!??!

Oh well. I love learning about the small handful of people who have made MTG such a huge part of their lives, particularly those who have taken the risk and the workload in earn a living off of MTG. Streaming, designing, podcasting, pro touring. Whatever. It's neat.

Interview rough to listen to.

The people you have on are GREAT and you ask good questions but man I cringe when you ask them. Idk if your nervous or what but the delivery of your (good) questions is so rough and monotonous it just needs work. Good interviews but just not done in an entertaining way!

Truly Eternal Content

I came to this podcast looking for English content on the experience of playing Legacy in China. Sure, I get a little of that here and there during the casts but the guest interviews on their personal experience is far better than I was expecting.

I’m still not caught up to the current episodes but everything I’ve heard so far is very relevant. I wish that I had found this podcast earlier in my competitive play and recommend it for anyone who wants to play and be successful in sanctioned magic tournaments. Listen to the people that have been there before, decks don’t matter forever, your approach to the game and life does.
