Chris finally talk GCB into playing some mediocre midrange control deck. GCB makes unfounded assertions about Return to Ravnica & reminisces about old magic cards. We play our first game with our audience & our first game with Chris as the contestant, and none of it works out the way we're hoping.

Chris also continues to broadcast his phone number on the podcast, which is just baffling. So enjoy that.


GCB is finally onboard with the Zombie Apocalypse, much to Chris' confusion. Chris invents yet another game, but his PC screws up the recording so you don't get to hear it. In our first episode recorded in the Chris Murray Home Studio, you get to hear hungry babies, yapping dogs, and creative swears. And we lose all of Gatherer to audio issues.

Here's the deck we played. You can see the version GCB Top 8'ed with here:

GCB goes on and on about his PTQ failure, Chris explains what it is to be a gentleman, Chris asks the worst rules question yet, and the boys can't think of a value 4-drop in standard to add to Bant Pod, even though every other Bant Pod list has Solemn Simulacrum in it. Chris demonstrates emotional denial about an upcoming life-changing experience (which has now taken place.)

Here's what we ran. I recommend getting the Deadeye into the maindeck (perhaps over Sun Titan), and a Simulacrum. Maybe you can cut a Borderland Ranger. A second Acidic Slime somewhere would suit my style but your mileage may vary.
