Season 11, Episode 8: Weekly Roundup + Flashback (Otherworldly Gaze)

Last week, cavedan planted his flag in favor of Otherworldly Gaze. The card continues to impress in Jeskai Murktide Phoenix, with friend of the show ManaCymbal notching another 5-0 last week with the same 75. Certain streamers still refuse to try it, but they do so at their own peril.

Meanwhile, two weeks into Innistrad: Midnight Hunt season, the spice has begun to rise to the top. We take a look at three of the most exciting builds featuring new cards, including two flavors of Rakdos Zombardment, Sultai and Temur Reclamation featuring Memory Deluge, and a wild Storm the Festival ramp deck.

We also kick off this episode with a look at the large upcoming paper Magic events, CFB Las Vegas and SCG Con. With shifting COVID protocols and the continuing Delta surge, what can we expect from these events and is it a good idea to go?
