Weekly Standard Update - February 23rd, 2016




Another week, another Standard update and another FNM gone by. This past FNM I played my Eldrazi Ramp again and with much success again I managed to get 2nd place after splitting in the final round. I ran the same list but after the night was over I updated my list in preparation for the PPTQ I went to on Saturday February 20th.

The list I ran Saturday is below:


As you can tell it's a big improvement over what I had. When test playing with World Breaker that card just put in it's work over and over again. So how did I do in the PPTQ?

You can listen to my Podcast Episode below or just read my results to see how I did!

Follow my gut instinct. Listen to it more. I have a problem with keeping hands that are sub-optimal and I need to stop that especially when I go on a losing streak. Trust my feelings more! Thanks for listening and reading! Stay tuned for more!
