Draw 3 cards or force opponent to draw 3 cards
Great podcast! Teaches so much about traditional magic strategy and history. Absolutely target yourself with this card, and beneficial to target your opponents as well.
Flores fans rejoice
A podcast where Mike Flores can talk about himself for an hour, what's not to love? Honestly, I love this show. The combo of grizzled veteran and rising star is great, and unlike some podcasts the audio quality is excellent. Worth a listen simply for the banter, and the content is fantastic too. Definitely my favorite MtG podcast.
