Horde of Notions #25 – Jon Finkel

There’s not much more that needs to be said really, is there? It’s a podcast with Jon Finkel. Oh sure you’ve got Chris, Jack, Adena and Will talking to the greatest of all time and everything but I mean…it’s Jon Finkel. What else could a person possibly need?

Jon talks about current players he respects, who he trusts to give him a decklist, who should and shouldn’t be in the Hall of Fame, what made him so great and what he sees as his place in the pantheon of MtG gods. It’s an hour and a half of pure Magic knowledge from Jonny Magic. You know you want to hear this.
