Episode 52 – The Price of Progress

This seems obligatory:

I’m sure there’s a ridiculous combo here somewhere, but we don’t mention it on this show at all.  In fact, apart from one passing mention of 42 land Swans, we don’t have anything to say about cards today.  Instead, we decided to look at and around the side of our favorite game that is always there, but often glanced over: the business.  Want to know why Standard is stale, why mistakes are made, why Tournament Organizers exist and why we trust Channel Fireball in 2018?  Its because those dollars are pretty important to the people who not only love the game and want to see it succeed, but whose rent and car payments are dependent on it doing so.  If you believe in seeking first to understand, there’s maybe something here to be enlightened by.  Enjoy!

Oh, and 42 land swans?  IT IS GLORIOUS.
