Brainstorm Brewery #73 – Current Pro
Raymond Perez, a.k.a. “Ray Future Pro,” is going to need a new nickname after finishing an astonishing eleventh place at the Pro Tour in Dublin, netting $5,000, an invite to Valencia, and a spot on Team Brainstorm Brewery. Back again to regale the gang with tales of the Pro Tour, muse about the future of splashy weekend decks, and give some analysis in the form of Picks of the Week, this is one episode you won’t want to miss. A contentious topic for the finance community also broached in this episode—this will be one for the history books. What should be done about stores that cancel card orders after cards spike? How do you beat the best decks from the Pro Tour? Who has decided to jump into Magic Online finance in a big way? Find out the answer to all these questions and more on a jimmy-jam-packed episode of your favorite podcast that will leave you feeling like you ingested so much value you’ll explode like the guy in that Monty Python sketch. Join us for Brainstorm Brewery.
