I am excited about our exclusive preview card from Rise of Eldrazi. This card should be see play in both Standard and Block Constructed and presents some interesting challenges for deck designers. I spoke with two of them — perhaps you have even read their books — about Consuming Vapors and what impact it might have on Constructed. The first two podcasts are with Deckade author Michael J. Flores huddled outside of Shake Shack on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Mike and I also scroll through some of the officially spoiled cards and muse about their roles in Constructed formats.
The second two ‘casts were also done within line of sight of a Shake Shack. This time we were in My Files author Zvi Mowshowitz’ Chelsea apartment. We caught Zvi’s unfiltered reaction to the card as he had not seen it prior to switching on the recorder after once again talking about the highlights from the officially spoiled cards. Zvi also talked about his preparations for Pro Tour San Juan and the team he is assembling to follow up on the success of his Mythic build for PT San Diego.
