Arena Decklists (formerly The GAM Podcast) is hosted by Gerry Thompson and Bryan Gottlieb and is the most hyper-focused, competitive Magic: The Gathering podcast. They've defined metagames and helped countless players up their game.
@HS_Orange talks Pioneer! Orange got his professional gaming start in Magic and has been crushing Pioneer online. Gerry asks Orange about the format, the Banned and Restricted list, how to test, and lessons learned from playing Hearthstone at the highest level.
In a massive podcast clocking in at over 90 minutes, Gerry and Bryan discuss post-banning Standard before turning their attention to Pioneer, its key cards, and their early tier list for the new metagame!
The Arena Decklist crew has been hard at work figuring out the deck to play in the new Standard. In Bryan’s case, he’s been defining the metagame almost singlehandedly! Find out what they think are the best decks for this weekend!
Gerry and Bryan review the MTG Arena Streamer Showcase event and talk about where Standard is going, which cards went up in their rankings, and which cards went down after seeing Throne of Eldraine in action.
