Naughty or Spice? Gerry Thompson Reviews Your Brews

Faithless Brewing, Episode 86: Brew Review Holiday Edition

The Brew Review is back for the holidays, and we asked listeners to send in their spiciest decklists. We also invited Pro Tour Champion and legendary deckbuilder Gerry Thompson to be a special guest judge! We’ve read your lists and checked them twice, so which ones are naughty and which ones are spice?

Gerry has built a career seeking information from far-flung places, and knows better than anyone that inspiration can come from anywhere. Can the crew get these lists pointed in the right direction? We also discuss Gerry’s heuristics for card evaluation, and put them to the test on the latest batch of previews from Kaldheim. Happy brewing!
