Hi there! In this week's Back in't'Day, Rob takes us all the way back to 2015, for another SCG event, which highlights a rapid change in creature based decks' approach to standard: from going tall to going wide. The best part of this event was the fact that names in the top 8 allowed for some pretty cringe-worthy wordplay. Back in't'day: http://www.starcitygames.com/events/250415_cleveland.html Of course the main (and only) talking point this week is the big announcement on OP changes made last week, followed by a swift retraction two days later. If you're confused about why everyone was telling you to #paythepros, we have (most of) the answers. Announcement: http://magic.wizards.com/en/events/coverage/ptsoi/2016-and-2017-premier-play-updates-announced-at-ptsoi-2016-04-24 Retraction: http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/news/announcement-concerning-changes-pro-club-2016-04-26 As usual, we have a Trash to Treasure for you, and Neil's word of the day (brought to you by fake neil) is the (gravy) train.
