Season 14, Episode 3: Serum Visions x Faithless Brewing Monthly Project #1
Tonight, we have a special episode for our faithless family. A few weeks ago we announced in our discord the evolution of the Brewer´s Choice, a pretty loved feature on our podcast where our patrons got the chance to vote for the cards they wanted us to play. However the system had some flaws, the biggest of them being that, for all the time it takes to administer a vote, the actual episode release happened on a very compressed timeline. Once the voting was done, there wasn’t much room for community input.
So, this time we iterate.
Our usual format doesn’t allow much time for iterative brewing, which means we had to get some experts to lend us a hand. On this episode we are joined by the mighty Dr. Combo, AKA Arun “Jiggywiggy” Singh, and Brian Madden, the mad artificer. These two masters of iterative brewing have taken some of their brews to the fringes of competitive deck building.
Alongside the Serum Visions gang we will be discussing the 12 potential candidates for a month of dedicated brewing, as we try to find the perfect home for the winner. Will we be casting Invoke Calamity targeting Collected Conjuring alongside a cantrip? Will we be trying to combo off with Kinnan and mana dorks, or will we get our mana from Flux Channeler alongside Pentad Prism and Mishra’s Bauble? The candidates are many and our patrons get to choose our poison.
