KYT, Bryan, and Robert are itching to get into Amonkhet Standard, and share the questions on their minds leading into the Amonkhet Prerelease weekend.

  • (00:01:33) Why no Banned and Restricted announcement before the Prerelease? Is this good news or bad?
  • (00:14:11) Early Amonkhet release on MTGO is now Monday after the Prerelease weekend! How great is that?
  • (00:21:47) Are Prereleases actually friendly for new players?
  • (00:31:05) The Five Trials promotion for Amonkhet, what do they think?
  • (00:38:06) The Modern Combo of Devoted Druid and Vizier of Remedies, is it worth playing?
  • (00:43:06) Are price spikes based on speculative combos in unreleased sets a worry?
  • (00:45:35) AKH reviews: Approach of the Second Sun
  • (00:50:16) AKH reviews: Gideon of the Trials
  • (00:56:24) AKH reviews: Glory-Bound Initiate
  • (01:02:00) AKH reviews: Rhonas the Indomitable
  • (01:07:37) AKH reviews: Gate to the Afterlife
  • (01:10:57) Is Arlinn Kord playable now that she synergizes with all of the Exert cards?
