Seb: I’ve been playing out of my mind still. Really pretty much anything that has packs involved and have been doing pretty decent.

Great show again, guys. Seemed like there was a little mic trouble in the middle, but not too bad.

I really wish they were doing Masques differently. The bad limited play of the sets + the fact that getting a Port/Tangle Wire is going to be nigh impossible means only the most hard core limited nuts are going to crack packs. The allure of this "new old format" will only carry drafts for so long.

Otherwise, I wanted to list a few cards that I am excited about:

Spellshapers (Kris Mage, Waterfront Bouncer), Dust Bowl, Vine Dryad, Rishadan Port, Land Grant, Tangle Wire, Invigorate, Submerge, Unmask, Misdirection, Daze, Depletion Lands, Game Preserve, Foster, Thwart, Foil, Blastoderm, Skyshroud Ridgeback, Food Chain, Cave-In, Saproling Burst, Nether Spirit, Other Seals besides Fire (make my goyf bigger), Chimeric Idol (no mana burn makes this cool), Bribery, the best Brainstorm picture, Sunff Out, War Cadence (cause it reminds me of my favorite Slayer song).

Lol @ Doris Day.

Modern Storm deck is already ridiculous with Desperate Ravings, Past in Flames, and Pyromancer Ascension. Faithless looting is a great filter though.

Past in Flames was the mistake. I promise. That card will see standard play now even with just the Looting card. Desperate Ravings + Looting + Alchemy = One-stop shopping/Great Selection.

IDK if Looting will make Dredge more viable in Modern because the I have been seeing BUG Dredgevine, which means they would have to splash and find other justification for red but this could be strong enough.

As far as Legacy Dredge, I could see this making the cut. I mean, 12 Careful Studies would not be all that bad, right?

Land Grant! I can't believe I forgot about that. In my scrubbier days that was like my favorite card of all time!
