Faithless Brewing, Episode 78: Halloween Spooktacular

 

The Day of Reckoning draws closer as the US elections are just days away. But before that, it's All Hallows' Eve! What could be more fitting than a full-on Halloween Thriller, with Zombies, creepy crawlies, and monsters rising from the grave? You can join the army of the Walking Dead, or you can Thwart the Grave and fight another day. The choice is yours!

Faithless Brewing, Episode 77: Rogues Week

 

Thieves' Guild Enforcer doesn't look like much, but the sneaky 1-drop has begun to prove its chops across Magic's formats. What began as a mini renaissance for delver strategies has blossomed into full-on Rogues tribal with the advent of Zendikar Rising. So what exactly is a Rogues deck, and which Rogues are strong enough to make the cut? We've got a few different builds for Modern and Pioneer, so let's find out in the queues!

Faithless Brewing, Episode 76: Luminarch Aspirant

 

Alright, we admit it: we've been known to bag on the color White in the past. We called it the worst color for constructed, and even dedicated a whole episode to seven bad white cards from Core 2021. Wizards vowed to improve the color's fortunes, even promising that Zendikar Rising would contain powerful White cards. And you know what? They delivered!

 

With Skyclave Apparition currently the darling of Modern, we're taking a week to highlight another strong creature that is still mostly flying under the radar. Luminarch Aspirant may not look like much, but it is quietly putting up 5-0s in both Modern and Pioneer. This is perhaps the largest standalone 2 drop White has ever seen, and it synergizes with +1/+1 counters and Human tribal to boot. Don't sleep on it!

Faithless Brewing, Episode 75: Magmatic Channeler

 

For months we've been trying to break the curse of Dreadhorde Arcanist: a red creature that you can add to any deck, no matter how powerful, and immediately go 2-3 in a league. Is Magmatic Channeler the one we've been waiting for? David thinks so, but his colleagues will need some convincing. The only way to find out is in the queues!
