Episode 113 – Preparing for PT Ixalan

In this episode, which was recorded last week, we lift the veil of until-recently-Gold-Pro Ben Weitz’s testing for Pro Tour Ixalan! This Pro Tour is remarkable in that we’ve had such a long time between the set’s release and the event itself, due to Wizards’ new timing of the World Championships, we talk with Ben about the impact of this timing, and how that combined with the relatively low impact of Ixalan to create a Pro Tour more heavily tilted towards tuners and away from brewers than any in recent memory.

We also did an experimental end story bit which we decided to only air if it was funny, listen to the episode to see if we did.

Next week we’ll engage in a hearty postmortem of the Pro Tour with soon-to-be-PT-Champ Ben Weitz who will have hopefully skipped his old status of Gold and jumped straight from Silver to Platinum this weekend! Fingers Crossed!
