KYT, Bryan Gottlieb, Andy Peters, Matthew Dilks, and Alex Bianchi get together to discuss fair decks in Modern, Grixis in Standard, and when a disqualification can be right but unfair.

  • (00:01:42) What deck did Matthew Dilks pilot to 1st at the F2F Modern Open in Toronto last weekend? Why was Blue Moon good in Modern right now?
  • (00:11:48) Why is Bryan in love with Standard right now? Other people seem to be loving it too.
  • (00:21:52) Is Ravenous Chupacabra not as good in Standard as people think it is?
  • (00:30:44) Does Andy feel that Grixis Energy is still the best deck in Standard?
  • (00:35:39) Are team event streams inherently boring to watch?
  • (00:45:25) Judge situation at Grand Prix Houston: Why did two players get disqualified because one made a joke?
