This week on Limited Resources Marshall and Luis go deep on an often-asked-about Level-Up topic: Bluffing. When should you do it? How do you decide if it’s correct to do so? How can you turn it around on your opponent? Find out this and more in this episode of LR!

I typically find that I can determine within just a few attack phases in the first game whether or not my opponent bluffs. I think you’re right- most people don’t bluff and I will usually go out of my way to figure out whether or not my op is the type of person who only attacks/blocks if they are certain it’s favorable. Once you’ve determined the “honesty” level of your opponent it’s almost like you can see the tricks in your opponents hand. Oddly enough in this format I agree with Luis in that most of the time I’d rather just get the removal out of my opponents hand asap to prevent blowouts later. One of the most skill-intensive aspects of magic is being able to craft a play-around for a card for multiple turns.
Very good stuff fellas. Definitely one of the best general strategy-oriented episodes you guys have ever posted.
