We were all set to take a week off, and then there were more Standard bannings. Yes, you read that right. We also have a special guest this week! Level 3 judge, mossy old man, and private citizen Bryan Prillaman is with us! You know him, he’s on JudgeCast. And we periodically pick on him on the show, but only because we love him.
Of course we spent a good chunk of time on the banned list update. And if you’re trying to figure out why Rampaging Ferocidon was banned, just look at the title of this episode. There’s also a fairly long discussion about the newly announced policy of background checks, and what we know about it. Spoilers: we don’t actually know much, and that’s important.
