    1. A few notes up front:
      1. Super cool that we are getting to do an episode based on feedback from the Community!!!
      2. This is just our thoughts on the deck, no one is right or wrong. In fact, that is one of the best things about EDH, the fact that everyone gets to bring their own personal style to each deck they build
      3. Awesome that it’s a “Brothers” card and we are the Brothers War!
      4. What a great direction to take this deck in. Eldrazi Tribal? No one sees that coming.
