Everyday Eternal #9: Preparing for Battle

In episode nine of #EverydayEternal, Matt Pavlic (sdematt), Jacob Kory (@MTGKoby on Twitter), and Sean O’Brien (nedleeds) discuss big tournaments. First, Sean regales us with his tales from GenCon, including winning an uncut sheet of Antiquities (congrats, Sean!). We’ve gotten some feedback about large tournaments such as Vintage Champs, so the guys move on to discussing how to prepare for such a large event. Everyone involved reminds you that it is not just the deck that’s important come game day!
