In episode 7 of Everyday Eternal, Matt Pavlic (sdematt) and Sam Craven (@TheCravenOne on Twitter) delve into more detail about the playability of M14’s most talked about card: Young Pyromancer. Warning: Deck discussion and brewing ahead! Our hosts also address the growing presence of combo in the Legacy metagame, and what you can do to fight it. Omni-Tell and Tendrils are the lessons for today, but the same can be applied to many of the other major combo decks.
As always, the guys open up with some discussion of recent events. This week, they also spend just a couple minutes analyzing the prevalence of Shardless BUG at the invitational, and the UWR Delver/Stoneforge deck that’s been gaining traction recently.
