The two co-hosts are clearly experienced players and provide quite a bit of valuable insight into the game-especially Modern.
Great balance between tournament coverage & brewing
I’ve listened to these guys since the beginning when there were around 100 co-hosts on the cast :) Now Cory and Daryl (bigdeezyrider on Twitch) run the podcast. I love their balance between weekly tournament coverage, MtG news, their assessments of new cards/tech., and their brews. I finally decided to write a review after listening to episode #102. In that episode, their conversation about how to play/beat Jace, the Mind Sculptor in Modern was the most comprehensive and beneficial coverage I have heard on a podcast (or YouTube video) since the unbanning announcement yesterday. If you haven’t yet, I recommend giving Card Knock Life a listen!
