The MagicGatheringStrat Show, Ep. 16

Section 1: This week in Standard Pauper

Section 2: Player run events

I want to give a quick shout out to the folks at the MPDC this week. I am sorry we didn’t discuss it on the show. A special shout out to Eddy for making sure I was on top my MPDC coverage.

I was very busy and I am afraid cuts had to be made. Do not fear! You are first on the article and in my heart.
