MSP #28 AKH Standard Predictions

May 3rd, 2017

This week on MTG Speculator Podcast Massimo and Sam share our testing results for the new Amonkhet Standard! We were unfortunately blindsided by the Felidar Guardian banning (as was everybody), so our data isn’t as concrete as it usually is, but hopefully our findings are still useful to you!
