  • (00:33:04) Speaking of team, what about team constructed? What Standard decks look good right now, especially with the Pro Tour coming up for Edgar?
  • (00:41:32) What kind of chemistry should a team look for in a team event?
  • (00:44:28) Mulligan math, are people doing it right, or not mulliganing enough?
