Historical Solutions

So we were not thrilled with Historic Anthologies 4, so we decided to suggest some cards.  We went through Magic to try to find some interesting cards that would spice up the Historic format.  We also asked our listeners to do the same.  We have some interesting things to talk about.

The Shadow Over Historic

This week we have two very different topics.  First, we talk about the changes to LGS owners and in-store players that will be happening with the release of Modern Horizons 2. We ask the hard questions like "What is spelltable?" Then we get into what we think is the best thing to be doing in historic which is casting Death Shadow.  We talk about what we have tested, seen and what could be shells to look it for one of the most powerful cards in the format.

What should be in the next historic anthologies - 5:39

What’s Spelltable? - 31:12
