Episode 9 August 24th, 2020
Rotisserie Rundown

On this episode, Andy and Anthony bring you the long awaited conclusion of their rotisserie draft of Andy’s cube. They also do a pack 1, pick 1 from, and discuss Anthony’s draft of, Riku’s Jund Cube, which leads into a conversation about black aggro, how profoundly player perceptions shape a draft and our resulting understanding of our environments, just how broken Oko is, a theoretical cube whose only stipulation is that it cannot contain any cards in your main cube, Anthony’s new beginner-focused cube, the difference between trying to draft a good deck and trying to draft a 3-0 deck, potentially problematic planeswalkers that have such high starting loyalty that they basically can’t be attacked profitably, and modifying the rules text of cards for your environment. Anthony airs some justifiable grievances about how his matches went which slowly leads Andy to the realization that a certain card just has to go.
