Faithless Brewing, Episode 49: Modern Brewing with Lawson Zandi
On April 16, Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths is poised to lay waste to Magic’s eternal formats. The set is chock full of giant monsters, insane enchantment engines, and “if you dare” build-arounds. There has never been a better time to be a brewer. What better time, then, to pick the brain of one of Modern’s most prolific brewers and streamers: the youngest old soul in Magic and certified mad scientist Lawson Zandi.
Our full Ikoria set review will be out next week, but in the meantime, we’ve got six eye-popping decks from Lawson that are among the wildest Modern brews you will see. Perhaps the craziest this about them is that Lawson has been winning with them, a lot. Also, on the Flashback: our testing results with Aristocrats strategies in Pioneer. Many of these proved to be Woeful, but we’re taking it all in Stride. Come join us for a walk on the wild side!
