In this episode of The Third Power, Usman and Anthony talk about our Modern Horizons 2 preview card - Dragon's Rage Channeler!  Thanks, Wizards of the Coast, for the free preview!
We discuss Dragon's Rage Channeler in the context of red's role of beatdown in cube, how Dragon's Rage Channeler's myriad of keywords play together, how red does other things than just beatdown and burn and a smattering of other tangents (as usual.)
