The way players qualify for the Pro Tour is about to change radically. Who better to join the discussion than Brainstorm Brewery’s #1 Super Fan? You’ve heard him called Zander Bandersbee, Bander Sandersbee and every possible variation by Ryan and Marcel, but there can be only 1- the man, the myth, the legend; Brainstorm finance writer, Dutch idiom expert and now…PTQ winner? That’s right Sander Van Der Zee (really guys, how hard is that?) joins the cast to discuss the changes to the PTQ structure, Khans of Tarkir, Finance 101 – Sander’s even got a pick of the week locked and loaded. That’s more than we can say for the rest of the cast for the past few weeks, isn’t it? Strap yourself in and hook up your value pipe because this episode is going to be all up in your grill with so much information you’re going to need to call in sick to work on Monday because you spent the whole weekend recovering from having your mind blown. Who snags Ryan’s pick of the week? What does Sander do when he’s not winning PTQs? What are the Khans of Travis? Find out the answer to all these questions and more in an episode that goes a little long but you won’t even mind that will have you saying “I get the feeling we’re getting an After Hours pretty soon”. Join us for Brainstorm Brewery.
