So until they get back and have some spare time to make Standard videos for us, I'll be taking a look at where Standard is headed. Bant Control Bant Control was the big winner at States, with the highest frequency of Top 8 appearances and a handful of wins to go along with them.

I’m very excited for the release of the new Commander’s Arsenal product—although it’s a real shame about how limited the release is. I understand that the intent is for it to be a status symbol and a big bonus for loyal stores, but this is even worse than the FTV products in that regard. Woo Brews – Unveiling the Epic Experiment. It only takes one to dream of walking the moon.
But only a hivemind can send someone to the moon and back. When we have sweet ideas, it’s tempting to keep them to ourselves to reap the full rewards.
