    Pioneer Bans and Full Set Reprints

    Pioneer Bans and Full Set Reprints

    Happy Holidays! Modern wasn't the only format to to see bans. Pioneer saw 2 bans and 1 unban. This week we discuss what we think of those changes and go over the idea of reprinting entire sets instead of masters sets. Let us know what you think!

Pretty good overall

So overall the podcast is pretty good. As a new listener, i feel like quite a bit of the recent content is not focused on modern, but rather the general news in the magic community. I think the podcast space is large enough where people (at least speaking for myself) desire niche areas like specifically modern. Do i care if teferi is banned in standard? Do i care about historic? Well i do, but i dont tune into a podcast specifically for modern to find that info. To provide some constructive feedback, play to your niche. I would love to see weekly metagame updates to the format and interviews with skilled players rather than hear about BnRs to a format that the podcast isnt about (ive been listening to the older shows because this was the case before). Thanks for what you do! Im a subscriber and ive added this to my weekly podcast rotation.

What happened to modern

I understand not wanting to do play modern anymore but don’t market to modern players and then talk about artisan commander and magic news. I came for metagame deep dives and deck techs and instead I get commander content. Just change the name.

Magic podcast or CNN?

Long time listener. Unsubscribed and out.
