(00:22:54) Standard Regional MCQ this Sunday filled up so fast, it is awarding 10 slots. Which deck will Andy play in that event? Why has Esper Control gotten better since the last Mythic Championship? Is it suprising that Sultai had a poor win rate overall at the MC?
(00:32:19) The MTGArena Mythic Top 8 from February have been announced, are there any surprises? How much of an improvement is the new top 1000 Mythic PTQ that has been announced?
(00:40:13) Which cards does the cast want to see reprinted in Modern Horizons? Can Force of Will be reprinted into Modern? Would it warp the format around it?
