Episode 11: The Thing About Combo

Hello everyone and welcome to another episode of the Power Nine Podcast.

This week, we sit down with our two guests, Nuno Sa and Baal Quinhones, to discuss about combo decks and how we feel about them. In most competitive formats, combo has always been a good way to win games, and generally, it’s okay. However, in casual formats like Commander, these strategies have always divided the community, some even saying it destroys the essence of the format. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
