‘Tis the Season

It’s that time of year when we get to play Sealed PTQs. The format has its upsides and downsides and you’re certainly going to increase your odds of winning by practicing as much as possible. I like Sealed because it evens the playing field to a degree by emphasizing deckbuilding. I also dislike Sealed due to the high variance—you’re basically at the whims of the pack gods. That said, there is always a deck to be made and played, and the great players will make the best of what they’re given. So join me as I take on a Theros-Born Sealed eight-man.
