Tarmogoyfs & Elvish Visionaries

Listener submitted pack 1, pick 1
What are Baneslayers and Mulldrifters
Why is “Baneslayer” often used in a derogatory way?
How Andy’s thinking about this dichotomy has changed over time
How good are these namesake cards in Anthony’s ‘Regular Cube’?
Andy’s top 5 Baneslayers he’s added to his Cube in the past 12 months

Andy and Anthony are back at it again, returning to the font of endless Magic discussion: Baneslayers and Mulldrifters. After years of not consciously thinking about this dichotomy, Andy has discovered that his primary cube has skewed heavily towards “Baneslayers”. The boys get into why this descriptor is so often used derogatorily, some reasons why “Mulldrifter” maybe should be used derogatorily, and how people’s perceptions of the difference between these two iconic cards changes when you choose different examples lower on the curve.

Our listener submitted pack 1, pick 1 this week is a grid draft pick from 123jhd’s Crimson Hunt.
