Episode 17: Slower Than Cruise Control

Sometimes, we just need some time to think, and sometimes it takes longer than usual. In this week’s episode, we discuss how to assess slow play and other things that we do in the game that gets us into unnecessary trouble. Warnings for GRVs rack up and in a large tournament, they upgrade to game losses pretty easily if we’re not careful. We highlight all the things that we shouldn’t be doing to avoid finding ourselves on the end of that penalty.

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.
