This week instead of looking at the mechanics we are trying to get an idea of how the cards and decks fit together with some of the new cards in Ikoria. Many of these cards are extreamly hard to evaluate, so I have a guest on who has made a name for being a man to recognise hidden potential in cards, Alexander Gordon-Brown, hot off of his top 4 at the MagicFest Online Season Finals. Check him out over on Twitter, here.

If you are interested in watching some of the new set be played, I had a chance to play with the new set thanks to WotC, you can check out the video here.
