Alex ‘Vivarus’ McKinley joins Callum & Julian to celebrate his recent win in the Eternal Weekend Vintage Mox Emerald Championship. Alex and his crew applied specific principles to constructing the Grixis Tinker Breach list that guided him all the way to the trophy, and we promise only 90% of it is gonna about playing the most broken card they could find. Is Preordain secretly the best still unrestricted spell in Vintage?

In the second part of the show we take a look at Legacy, and its pathological addiction towards adding more colours to decks – and getting away with it! Especially the most recent Challenges & the NRG Series have driven this trend up another notch. However, unlike during previous Blue Soup Seasons, there’s a noticeable trend towards loading up on Wastelands and Life From the Loams, instead of adding a 5th colour. Seriously, what happened to everybody’s favourite trend of 5c Blood Moon? Towards the end Julian is interested in bringing back an old classic, but Callum is just dead inside 🙁
