What has ten guilds, a bunch of cats being placed in ovens, and no more Elk? Standard, thanks to the recent round of bannings! Brandon, Charla, and Kevin discuss the ban’s implications on what feels like a Wild West of decks raring to take the mantle now that Simic Food has been abolished—but not before they eulogize Oko, Once Upon a Time, and Veil of Summer...and talk about Charla’s burial plans. Uh, this one got weird. In our Stories from the Left Field Bleachers segment, we talk about...

Well, that was fast. Bye, Field. Brandon, Charla, and Kevin discuss the recent Standard ban’s implications on the format and what decks stand poised to benefit from the hydra-made-of-2/2 zombies deck that was Golos getting put on the bench. Also featured is a lightning round discussing if the bans didn’t go far enough; should Oko have been banned? Nissa? Teferi or Krasis? Ban everything, see if we care. Plus the introduction of our future Pulitzer-winning segment, Kevin’s Serious Magic: the...
