1:41 pm – Deck techs with the one and only Scott MacCallum. The first one is with Reid Duke and his version of Jund, while the second one is the crazy Bant list Team Panik was able to concoct. Apologies for the loud background noise we had to work with, but I am sure you guys will love the information given. I am uploading Tom Martell’s deck tech on the Aristocrats deck right now.

Some of you probably saw the deck on coverage already. The deck plays a lot of counter spells, Sphinx’s Revelation to draw cards and finishes things up by Harvest Pyring its own Boros Reckoner. Now I doubt the deck runs 4, but Lemish here says he is buying 4 because he is lazy.

4:02 pm – Sorry for the lack of updates. I decided to run an errand to make sure that Team Panik got their new and beautiful Channel Fireball t-shirts. They were being sent to the hotel and the participants didn’t want to risk potentially missing a match to go get them.

Scott is here now and he’s got quite a number of pros lined up to do deck techs between rounds. In his words, he wants to put out more video than WOTC tonight. Big game? Definitely. He’s recording one with Matthias Hunt right now.

For Round 5, we have got two of our team members playing each other in Tzu-Ching Kuo and Doug Potter. It looks like Kuo decided to move away from the team deck and is piloting Reanimator.
