The Great Work continues! With Phyrexia: All Will Be One fully previewed, we turned loose our resident brew master to analyze the best new offerings for Pioneer. (This time around, we are diving our set review by format — if you’d like to hear our analysis of the Modern cards, check out the previous episode of Faithless Brewing).

In the brewer’s paradise that is Pioneer, the powerful new offerings from Phyrexia are glistening with oil-slick possibilities. More than 60 cards made the cut in this massive episode, which still only scratches the surface of what All Will Be One has to offer. There’s something for everyone in this set, and we can’t wait to grease the wheels of the brewing machine and get to work.
