On today’s episode Cavedan and Morde take their first steps into the iterative brewing pool with a close look at Invoke Calamity, the winning card from our monthly project vote.

We start with an analysis of the card’s strengths and weaknesses, drawing inspiration from previous posted results in various formats. Invoke has already made inroads into Pioneer in the Neoform Velomachus Turns deck, and in Standard it powers an intriguing one-shot combo with Body of Research and Kazuul’s Fury. Can either of these concepts translate to higher powered formats?


Then, we develop our first concepts and ideas for brand new brews playing to Invoke Calamity’s advantages. Morde explores Collected Conjuring in Modern, while David is interested in copying ritual effects and Cavedan has his eye on land destruction. Can they crack Invoke Calamity before the return of the Serum Visions gang? Tune in to find out.

Happy brewing!
