C20 - Ruthless Regiment Deck Upgrade
How's it going? We're under a shelter-in-place order like many of you, which is not fun. Making this podcast for you has really been great in terms of keeping us mentally sane. Today, we upgrade Ruthless Regiment, the Commander 2020 Mardu Human Tribal deck commanded by Jirina Kudro. Our gameplan is to create tons of creatures, attack with them, and swiftly KO our opponents. If that doesn't work, we have an Aristocrat style backup plan where we sacrifice our creatures for value and win an attrition-based game. We've replaced ten cards in the deck. The price for the upgrade is about $5.60. Enjoy! -- Email us at youngpyrocast@gmail.com. Please like, share, subscribe, or leave a review wherever you listen.

Playing and Deckmaking From Home
Hello! We hope you are all staying safe during this time. Magic, and especially Commander, is a social game. The coronavirus is making it hard for all of us to do many things. We have tons of extra time that we usually don't have. As a result, we will be releasing lots of bonus content this week. Today, Ezra talks through the many resources and tools that are available to us online to deck build and play online, as well as other Magic-related things. Thanks for tuning in! As always, we appreciate your feedback. Comment wherever you listen, send us an email (youngpyrocast@gmail.com), or shoot us a voice message. You could be featured on a future episode and have your question answered on the podcast! We have a little joke in the thumbnail.

Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain
Welcome to the Young Pyromancers, your new podcast for all aspects of Magic: the Gathering! We look to help you improve your play experience, regardless of how old you are. We put a focus on budget Commander. Magic is a pricey game, especially for us kids who don’t have a huge amount of money to spend on cards. You don’t need to shell out one thousand dollars on pieces of cardboard. Decks can be fun to play, powerful, and cheap at the same time. Today's topic is a deck tech of Ezra's Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain deck. We hope you enjoy! This is brand new for us, so please leave comments and helpful feedback. -- Email us: youngpyrocast@gmail.com Music: Basic Implosion by Kevin MacLeod Link: https://incompetech.filmmusic.io/song/3420-basic-implosion License: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/
