Last weekend I finally found some time to compete in the Legacy Challenges on Magic Online again. Coming off a couple of 5-0s with the current list, I felt like my list was heavily optimized against all the various flavours of Grixis Delver/Control as well as Czech Pile, so I was happy to give it a try in the Challenge. The 2 Mindbreak Traps in the sideboard are a kind of concession to the amount of Goblin Charbelcher I have seen lately; they might just as well be the third Cabal Therapy and 3rd Surgical Extraction, to get additional value against Sneak Show, Dredge, Lands and Reanimator.
Since I didn’t record the matches at the time, I am commentating the match replays instead, since several people had told me they’d still love to watch those. So here we go!

Round 2 vs Elves:
Round 3 vs RB Reanimator:

Hope you guys were able to follow my explanations. It was quite interesting for me to see to what extent my decisions were consistent with my estimation of the situation while reviewing the games with you. In some way I actually felt that by reviewing these matches, I actually learned quite a bit about my own play style. Thinking about it, it would actually be pretty cool to see more people re-commentate previous matches of theirs.
I recently decided to sign on to Patreon, a cool website that lets you support the people and projects you enjoy the most in order to make it easier for them to produce additional content. There’s several tiers of support, that will give you special perks like coaching sessions or Legacy Premier League swagchandise. Note that all of my content and projects themselves will always remain free no matter whether you pledge any amount of not. Patreon is a way for people who want to see even more, crazier and bigger projects from me in the future!
