Serum Visions is a Magic: The Gathering podcast about iterative brewing. Each episode we work on a project -- a deck, strategy, or archetype that we think has room for exploration -- and brew to the fringes of competitive deck building. 

 

In this episode we ring in the new year by talking about the old. We’ll wax poetic on the state of brewing in Modern and how the past year of cards have impacted the format.
