What’s the deal with Mono-Red? And Khans Block Rotisserie Draft? And what’s the deal with Gred and Reen?
HOLY SHIT GUYS! BEARS!

With regard to how Cam loses, I know there is at least one card that can make your opponent draw in this format, though it IS in black. Since he's just one card ahead that would cause Cam to lose instead.

Also, at the point that you must always mulligan one more than your opponent, wouldn't a 41 card deck be better?

First of all, excellent video. A lot of little details done right, like the ticker for PT: AK. I also appreciate how you continue to break down various Magic conventions for newer players each month.

The most obvious card to solve Paul's problem is Lightning Shrieker. Although it is quite possible Paul is smart enough to not run that, or Cam saw it in an earlier round (probably Graham's deck). Regardless I can just imagine Cam carefully balancing his deck so he could still cast Treasure Cruise and Weave Fate and have the opponent end up one card short.

Edit: upon further review, it appears as though Kathleen ended up with Treasure Cruise (and Whisk Away, another potential out for Paul).

This episode was sooo good, I really enjoyed it. The Pro Tour Alex's Kitchen made me laugh so hard. The counterspelling sequence reminded me of the iconic scene in Dirty Harry. "You have to ask yourself a question: did I cast 5 counterspells or only 4?"

Come now, you expect me to believe FN!Cam would play blue black and no card draw? (Honestly, any plan that relies on milling an opponent with an empty board wins on style alone anyway.)

So if this ability can't fizzle, what happens if the person you're targeting dies before it resolves?

It doesn't say poison counters...

But if a player leaves the game, everything they own leaves the game too.

The stinger of the video was, I think, the highlight for me. :P

Really nice touch with the empty chair being Swedish.

Have I missed something, or are there really only 4 counter spells? Negate (played at 7:54) is Dragons. ( [url=http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Search/Default.aspx?action=advanced&set=+[%22Khans%20of%20Tarkir%22]&rarity=+![M]+![R]&text=+[counter]+[spell]]Gatherer[/url] )

They're playing Khans block (that is, Dragons, Fate Reforged and Khans), so that list won't be comprehensive. On the flip side, it's pauper, so no uncommons either. Gatherer says 5 - Cancel, Contradict, Disdainful Stroke, Negate and Rakshasa's Disdain.
