We coming in hot with a fresh Premodcast drop! In between vacations we did an hour record to talk about how the meta is looking these days as well as a...let's say a look at the wild June monthly finals won by Rich Shay over Jens Jaeger on Turtle Splash. Then Mike and Andrew talk with Ken Meyer Jr. Apologies again for timeliness on this one, we recorded it back in early May but had some technical difficulties and couldn't get it out before Lobstercon. Still a great interview with a classic Magic artist!
Guess who's back! After a bit of hiatus premodcast is right back at ya with more premodern content. We catch up a bit on the last few months since lobstercon and then do a Weatherlight top 5. Turns out it's a weird but weirdly good set!

Happy New Year everyone! We welcome Gabe Farkas to the pod after his second place finish in the November monthly to talk about, among other things, the many different quality black removal spells. Many of you know Gabe in the Premodern community for his encyclopedic knowledge of cards you've never heard of from the format, as well as his suite of brews some of which have become format staples. Between those factors as well as his background in data analysis we hope to crack the nut that is "destroy target (x) creature".
The boys go over a few listener requests this week. Chiefly what the heck you're supposed to name with Cabal Therapy and Meddling Mage! But also some chat about how we store our cards and the usual fluff.
Premodcast welcomes Gerard Siatkowski to the pod for a diverse conversation covering many topics, in particular his fondness for Korean and other foreign premodern cards, hate for foils, and some of the off-the-wall decks he likes to sleeve up (with foreign cards of course). Somehow we didn't talk about turtles, hopefully you all come for the magic conversation instead.
