Limited Resources 487 – Ravnica Allegiance Sunset Show

This week on Limited Resources Marshall and Luis look back on a really good set, Ravnica Allegiance! It’s time to bid it farewell, but before we do we have to figure out which card was the biggest groan test, which had the best artwork, and all the other points of recognition shall we say, for the set.

And yes, Luis has his soundboard for this one…

Limited Resources 482 – A Fresh Look BREAD (And Why You Shouldn’t Use It)

This week on Limited Resources Marshall and Luis tackle one of the most often-cited tools for Limited players: BREAD. Bombs, Removal, Evasion, and some other words that nobody quite seems to know are often used as a heuristic for drafting well. Marshall and Luis do not subscribe to this school of thought and give you the reasoning why. But it wouldn’t be LR unless they DID give you their approach and you’ll get to hear that this week on LR! 

Also Let’s Stump Vargas returns 🙂 

Thanks to Ryan Spain and Brian David-Marshall for their contributions to the notes on this one!
