Companion to Episode 206

On episode 206 Marshall and I discussed our tier lists for Theros commons.  These lists represent where we are at right now in our evaluations.  Within a tier, we’re fairly willing to select based on the demands of our deck, be that mana curve, creature count or the need for ways to interact with our opponent.  Usually, we will not dip down a tier if a card in a higher tier is available.  We didn’t spend too much time ordering the cards within the tiers, so please don’t read too much into that.  We also did not make the tiers comparable across colors.  There are definitely going to be corner cases where you’ll want to make a large divergence.  Also, we recognize that people have “pet” cards that really fit into the color in the way you like to draft that color.

**This is intended to be a companion to the show, not a substitute for it!**  We bounced back and forth between our lists, so we created the necessity to post here for ease of access.  What we say in the show will be far more useful than just the lists themselves.
