This week Simeon and I look into two PPTQ top 8s from AC Models and Freaking Awesome. Our deep dive is on a deck which makes use of a strategy we said on last weeks show would be one to consider when facing off against UB Control and Mono-Red – tokens! But not the sort Simeon keeps playing.

Also, we had some severe technical issues this week, with a mid-recording computer crash and missing sections of the cast that were apparently just not recorded at all. So, I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize for any loss in quality in this week’s show. We have attempted to compensate for this as much as possible, but there may still be some issues. We hope that this will not be a recurring issue, and will work towards this not happening in the future.

We’ve spent the last couple of weeks talking about the Mono-Red menace. This week, we notice the indications that the metagame has maybe begun to turn back and we might have space opening up at the top. Simeon has also had a look at the conversion rates for the decks at the one PPTQ we have results for, Alpha Games, have a look at that here.
