Everyday Eternal #39: Sideboarding and Shenanigans

Everyone knows that you need to bring a full 75 cards to play competitively. But how do you choose those cards and which cards come out of the deck? The team discuss strategy for building and executing your sideboard plan along with a great many other things.

Unfortunately, we got off topic a lot with discussion ranging from Matt’s recent experience with ‘shops, this year’s major tournaments, and how upcoming banned and restricted list changes will affect those tournaments.
