As 5 Color Media, I'm dedicated to bringing you quality audio content about Magic and other nerdy pursuits. I'm currently recording three podcasts. Mental Discipline is a weekly "hangout" cast with James Mellish and Dustin Sendejas dedicated to improving your game. The second is an interview show called Across the Table. The third?

Sometimes the Arjunaman is pretty damn deece at MTG, and this week is such a week! His pet deck of the new format, Sultai Ultimatum, is currently the deck to beat in Standard. We go deeper on the archetype and explore both how to win with it and how to beat it. We also go over the winrate matrix for Standard in week 2 to discover what's winning and…
 
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Sultai just might be the best deck in Standard. However, Gerry and Bryan are more optimistic about their chances of fighting back this time, and they’re here to highlight a bevy of decks that might have what it takes to compete. Plus, breaking news and Bryan browbeats Gerry into teaching everyone Sealed for …
 
Arena Craft continues another proud tradition by welcoming DanyTLaw back to the show! Dany's always plugged in to the Standard meta, especially at the beginning of a format, so we thought it was high time to get him back on the show. We discuss recent developments in the format such as Temur Taking Turns, Naya and Selesnya Toski builds, Naya and Sh…
 
A format is the sums of all its sets, and not just the best cards in it. Pioneer has been around for more than a year now and has seen many cards come and go due to bannings and the ever evolving metagame. Just because you only see the best cards show up in top decklists doesn't mean the format is figured out or that another card isn't good. It jus…
 
Another day, another huge announcement from Wizards of the Coast, and to the surprise of no one Gerry and Bryan are... fine with it? Are we sure this is right? Why are the guys happily taking their Magic cards to Mordor and beyond? Plus, a look at the decks currently dominating Standard, and an impassioned defense of Nickelback.Music:Mega Man 2 "En…
 
Strixhaven swooped in and surprised us this past week – literally nobody was expecting to see material for the next set yet. Oh well, go where the content takes you! We discuss the five Colleges of Strixhaven: Quandrix, Witherbloom, Silverquill, Prismari and Lorehold. They each have a rare command card that gives us clues as to the play patterns an…
 
With Uro gone, graveyards have become a little bit safer, but also putting things INTO graveyards has become safer as well. Our good friend and MTGO Grinder Amit, AKA EkerossMTG, joins us to talk about one of his favorite decks, the sole purpose of which is to put things of your opponent's into their graveyard and then get cards out of yours. That'…

Sweeping change has come to almost every Magic format, and Uro (and some of its most notorious pals) have been left out in the cold. Where do we go from here? Let Gerry and Bryan tell you in this special bonus episode!Music:Mega Man 2 "Ending theme" Remix by zookun | Music composed by Manami Matsumae & Takashi TateishiTimestamps: Why did it take so…

An absolute bomb was dropped on the competitive Magic the Gathering community last week in the form of an announcement that stated that there would be a banning of Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath across multiple formats in the second week of February. We couldn't just sit on this news and not react to it as soon as possible, so Kevin and I dropped eve…
 
Dreams of Ashiok, Twitch streamer and MTGO grinder, joins us this week to talk about one of the most exciting decks of the new Kaldheim Pioneer season; Mono Green Planeswalkers. The deck has always been a competitor and has stuck around as a tiered deck since the beginning of the format. It's been hit multiple times by bannings but the deck continu…
 
We're baaaaack, and this time to discussed the Kaldheim Week One Standard Metagame! Goldspan Dragons and Showdown of the Skalds are flying around everywhere. Rakdos is back on the menu. Tibalt is Trickery-ing his way through the BO1 metagame, and it's a bit much for CGB. We discuss what we're seeing on the ladder, as well as looking at two SCG Top …

I have to admit, I've been rather skeptical of the last few sets and their impact on the Pioneer format, but ever since the full Kaldheim card gallery came out both Kevin and I have been brewing like crazy. While the "Spike's", or competitive players of the format, might be unexcited about what the new set brought to Pioneer, the "Timmy's" and "Joh…
 
No sleep. No food. No Genshin Impact or Teamfight Tactics. The boys lived on Magic Arena for the first day of Kaldheim’s release, and they’re already seeing the trends emerge. What has impressed and what has come up short? What important principles must deckbuilders keep in mind? Why is Haste the keyword you need to focus on right now? The answers …

Jonathan Medina may sound like he literally 'dialed it in' on the phone in today's episode, but audio issues and joking aside, set release time is one of the most exciting times of the year for the First Pioneers. Kaldheim is bringing a lot of brewing potential to the Pioneer format and while there are no clear cut broken cards like in some of the …

After a less than stellar start to the preview season, the last few days have brought some exciting new cards to Kaldheim.
