So its become all about Oko over the last week, to an extent that seams to be forcing the metagame into a corner where your deck needs to have a coheasive gameplan to beat the food decks if you intend to compete. Meaning that this week we discuss how to go about fighting the food decks, and talk about what we have found effective in testing.
