The Main Phase

The Main Phase


The Main Phase is a premiere Magic: The Gathering fan-driven podcast dedicated to analyzing and reviewing all aspects of the game, primarily the Standard format, as well as share our favorite stories and memories we’ve had with the game, competitive game results, deck techs, and current MTG news. We love this game, and whether you are a newbie or a seasoned veteran, The Main Phase offers something for everyone.

This week, DBoe and Nate discuss the contentious banning of Uro, Titan of Nature’s Wrath from standard before Zendikar Rising was even released in paper. Was this even the right card to ban? What’ll happen now with the meta?

Wizards of the Coast also released spoilers for their newest Secret Lair; this time of the Walking Dead. But instead of silver boarders, we are greeted with unique, one of a kind, eternal format legal cards. What does this mean for us as players?
