First Pass at Throne of Eldraine

New set, get hype. I love the flavor of Throne of Eldraine, it’s such a cool variation on the sort of “PG-13 slightly-edgy fantasy” stuff we’ve been doing for a while. Anyway, this is my first pass at the set, a Sealed queue on Magic Arena. My pool was mediocre, and so was my performance. […]
