Matchup Mulligan: Miracles II

Maverick Hand Answer Hand 10: (on the draw) » Keep or Mulligan? Keep I am honestly shocked by the number of people who said they would ship this hand. Risk vs. reward!

Development and Progress: The EPIC Storm moving forward

”Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.” -Benjamin Franklin In a game of variance, there is no one true way to determine the best iteration of a deck. As metagames shift and adapt, one must also adapt the list they are playing with. Sometimes this means changing sideboard slots, replacing flex slots, or even swapping the number of key cards.
