Do you believe in magic?

If so, you do NOT want to miss all of the action in our newest episode of Magic The Gathering!

Just like last week, this will be a best-of-three match, featuring Ryan and Tad facing off once again! When combined with the deck-building expertise of Aryeh Wiznitzer, and the color commentary from Adam Lyons, longtime Magic fans and new players alike are in for a ton of fun!

Of course, half the fun of a good Magic game is knowing how the decks stack up! So, we’ve got the full list of cards for each player below!

Tad:

After his defeat to Ryan last week, Tad has brought a new deck to the table, and he’s using the infamous Goblin Chainwhirler strategy! This deck has been used by tournament players worldwide, and although it’s been modified slightly with the inclusion of 4 Viashino Pyromancers, it should be the perfect test of strength to see how M19 will affect the current deck strategies! His deck includes:
