D.C. #24: Unorthodox Predictions

A bumper episode packed with pre-Euros content! The 2018 European Championships are coming, and Johno and Chris start by perusing Whispers in Nalubaale, the latest pack which will be legal at the event. Then they move on to the current meta and break down what your options are on each side and in each faction, then Chris tells us all what to play, thank God. And then, the predictions game is back: we glance into our murky crystal balls and glimpse the future, and encourage you to play along.



The All-Seeing I (00:32:45)

Johno and Chris dig deep into the current state of the meta and the archetypes that are in a good position right now on each side.


Unorthodox Predictions (00:55:46)
