September 29, 2021

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 take another pass at some old favorites. Can Song of Creation take center stage after some of the recent set releases, and how did Brian end up back on Bolas’s Citadel?
