We took last week off because it seemed like not enough happened to warrant recording. Then we got Jeremy Noell of StarCityGames.com on the show and suddenly all that stuff we skipped last week easily turned this into a three hour show! Jeremy helped us check out the first look at new Standard and Modern and even pointed out a few things we missed in the show notes! He’s pretty awesome, go follow him on Twitter. The real meat of the discussion, however, was the seemingly-simple press release from WotC’s new president and what it could possibly mean for the future of Magic! We all hope you enjoy, and be sure to check out Jeremy over on SCG’s YouTube channel, he’s on Commander Versus and Split Second!
