MinMax has been on hiatus for a long time as the woes of 2020 plus general life stuff has stricken both Max and I. However, we're both proud to be back! Legacy as a format has felt kind of droll for a few months, but thanks to Skyclave Apparition, things seem to be quite a bit more reasonable. We've got checks in place for all of the top decks in the format, and matches seem a lot more dynamic than before. This change, coupled with a brand new sponsor (more on that in a moment!) means that we're back to producing the hard-hitting content you folks know and love!

We're also now extremely proud to be sponsored by Cardhoarder! With their sponsorship, we can not only make content in our favorite formats, but also dive into more diversified content overall, allowing us to swap decks that we'd otherwise never be able to play, as well as formats we've not doing any pieces for in the past! So you can soon look forward to seeing how I do navigating cars (Fleetwheel Cruiser) in Vintage, and perhaps even some Modern or Pioneer content too!

We're beyond excited and thankful for Cardhoarder's support, and in celebration, I streamed yesterday (11/12/2020) as I dipped my toes back into Legacy. I've not played the format in many months, so there was a LOT of rust to shakeoff, as well as a LOT of learning to be done. I went in with my trademarked boring fair deck, 5C Snow! Decklist here:

Creatures Spells Lands Sideboard
2 Ice-Fang Coatl 4 Brainstorm 2 Flooded Strand 2 Nihil Spellbomb
3 Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath 4 Ponder 1 Karakas 2 Pyroblast
4 Swords to Plowshares 4 Misty Rainforest 1 Red Elemental Blast
1 Thoughtseize 2 Polluted Delta 1 Veil of Summer
2 Abrupt Decay 2 Prismatic Vista 1 Containment Priest
1 Assassin's Trophy 2 Snow-Covered Forest 1 Damping Sphere
2 Dead of Winter 2 Snow-Covered Island 1 Ethersworn Canonist
1 Force of Negation 1 Snow-Covered Plains 1 Leovold, Emissary of Trest
4 Force of Will 1 Snow-Covered Swamp 2 Plague Engineer
4 Arcum's Astrolabe 1 Tropical Island 1 Wear // Tear
2 Narset, Parter of Veils 1 Tundra 1 Felidar Retreat
3 Oko, Thief of Crowns 1 Underground Sea 1 Mindbreak Trap
2 Sylvan Library 1 Volcanic Island

Please enjoy the matches from the League! We had a lot of fun and learned a lot from the most fair magic possible!
