Outro

Andy and Anthony discuss all things Battle Box, one of their favorite casual ways to play Magic. A Battle Box is a great thing to have for quick games between and around matches. Without the variance of land draws it’s both very approachable and gives spikes an opportunity to test their skills in detailed aspects of gameplay.

Our listener submitted pack 1, pick 1 this week comes from Milkshake1988’s spell’s only cube, which really commits to the bit.
