The world championship... is already over! But before it was, Covertgoblue and Arjuna got together to discuss the decklists and the metagame for the tournament. A lot of these decklists will be templates for the meta moving forward, so even though it went a certain way, we expect to keep seeing these lists show up on the ladder and getting refined. Exciting times for Standard!
This week, we have an absolute legend of a content creator on the show – Michael J Flores! He is known for his prolific articles, including perhaps the most famous MTG article of all time, "Who's The Beatdown?" Michael J still writes, currently for Coolstuffinc, and also hosts several podcasts, of which Top Level Podcast is a Crafty Host fave.This week, we're discussing the SCG Satellite Standard tournaments from the past week, and there is a clear 3-deck format trend emerging: Izzet Turns, Monogreen Aggro, and Monowhite Aggro. We discuss how these decks are positioned, whether black-based control decks have any place in the meta, and a whole lot else about card choices and implications for these decks!If you love the show and want to support us, head over to our Patreon and check out our tiers: https://patreon.com/arenacraftpodcast .

This week Crafties, we're doing deep on Standard 2022. We come up with a tier list for the format, and go into detail about builds and matchups you need to be thinking about. Arjuna goes into detail about his Simic Summoner list that he is convinced is tier 1. Covertgoblue discusses the best build of his Blood Money deck.

This week we do a (somewhat comprehensive) review of Jumpstart: Historic Horizons. These are the cards that we think are going to matter in new or existing archetypes. Unfortunately, the release has been DELAYED UNTIL AUGUST 24. So even more time to do your homework. We also may or may not discuss some other spoiled cards, to Arjuna's deep chagrin.Does our show bring value to you?

Huge news this past week – Historic Horizons is on the, er, horizon, and we'll, be reviewing the best of what we've seen so far. Also, 100 Card Historic Brawl is coming to the Arena!

There's some exciting news announced this week – there will be a Historic Masters Jumpstart set coming to Arena August 12! That means a massive injection of powerful cards into the format, including (from WOTC themselves) cards from MH and MH2! We'll be looking out to see what busted stuff is coming down the pipe next for the Historic format.We also revisit the Standard 2022 queue to see what strategies are emerging and dominating. There have definitely been some metagame shifts, as midrange is starting to find its footing in the arena. This week we focus on two decklists, one brew by each of us, that have both beeing seeing meta play on the list: Arjuna with Simic Ramp, and CGB with Orzhov Kaya. This is an evolving metagame, so keep up on with with our review.Does our show bring value to you?

This week we discuss the pillars of this new format so far in the form of Mono Green, Izzet Dragons, the various builds of Mono White, Dimir Control, Rakdos Tresure lists, and some spicy other includes. This queue is AWESOME and very fresh at the moment, so be sure to get in on it before it becomes boring and stale.Arjuna's decklists:Simic RampMono GreenMono WhiteCovertgoblue's decklists:Mono WhiteMono GreenDimir ControlFind Arena Craft on:PatreonDiscordTwitterTwitchYouTubeFacebookEmail UsThis show features the track 'Cascade' by Kubbi which is licensed under a Creative Commons License.Find Kubbi's amazing music at kubbimusic.com
It's finally here – Covertgoblue and Arjuna's complete set review for DND: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms! This time we're trying something different, going into archetypes and splitting the cards into categories we think will be most relevant. We also wanted to shorten our typical 10-12 hour sprawling set review to just the cards we think are relevant or likely to show up. Let us know what you think!We now have a Patreon!

Alright, Crafties – the Adventures in the Forgotten Realms set is half previewed so far, and today Arjuna and Covertgoblue dive in to see what's standing out so far. We cover the new Class enchantment type, then go over a select handful of cards to see what we think might emerge as forefront archetypes for the new format.We now have a Patreon!

This past week, Arjuna and Covertgoblue set out to determine the parameters of – and the best decks in – 100 Card Historic Brawl. This took us on a journey down rabbit holes with some of Arena's wiliest legends. This show outlines our findings and some of what we believe to be the core axioms of the format.We also go into a new card type being introduced in the next set, D&D: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms – Dungeons. We explain what this new card type is and how it works in-game.We now have a Patreon! Head right over to patreon.com/arenacraftpodcast to view the tiers and register your support.

This week, we look at one of the hardest-to-play decks to hit Standard in a long time: Jeskai Mutate. This deck has so many combo pieces and requires so many game actions to get anywhere that it will test your time management and game action bandwidth. As such, we though it would be a good deck to encourage playing to hone your combo deck chops.ALSO, look out for our 100-card Historic Brawl Showdown this Thursday, June 24th at around 2pm Pacific Time / 5pm Eastern!

We all suspected it might happen, so many of us aren't that surprised to see Time Warp banned in Historic. Is it really the fall guy for Mizzix's Mastery though, or perhaps Brainstorm? Looks like the format still has a way to go before reaching stasis. This week we also discuss the Jeskai Mutate deck that has been taking Standard by storm, and then celebrate another Gas or Ass segment focused on some of the temporary formats coming to Arena!We now have a Patreon!

This week we host a Strixhaven Graduation Ceremony, where we review the set and see which cards got there, which cards didn't, and how it has impacted formats. We also dive into the results of our podcast listener survey (not too late to take it here!) and see what your feedback has to contribute to the future of the show.

Today, we talk about a number of common pitfalls that players make when evaluating cards and plays. These are all things that gain you an advantage, but not as much of an advantage as you might think. Learning when to value these things and when to disregard them is yet another part of your arsenal for playing Magic.>>> TAKE OUR PODCAST SURVEY! <<<This will shape the future of the podcast, so weigh in, let your opinion be known, and get this podcast even closer to the product you want to listen to every week!We now have a Patreon!
