Episode 11 - Mana is overrated

In this episode we talk to Sean O’Brien, a player that has playing since the beginning of magic and also is honoured as the founder of the O’Brien School of Magic in one of the most important early strategy books for Magic the Gathering. The O’Brien School of Magic is a mana denial strategy all about not letting your opponent cast spells at all. We talk about the early days and also of course about how that strategy works today in Old School.

Me, Seb and Grant also talk a bit about some cards that may, or may not be, underrated.
