Nobody likes mono-blue decks, mono-blue players, and cards that are best in mono-blue. Subsequently, I don’t think anybody will like this podcast. The contents are all mono-blue, with the exception of the final segment, which is still all about blue cards. I’d like to apologize to our listeners for supplying such an inherently unlikable podcast. Myself, Byron, Carlos and guest Neale aka Wrongwaygoback accept full responsibility for producing this travesty. Neale has volunteered to accept the hatemail, as well as physical attacks in the real.

If you think you can stomach listening to a bunch of boring mono-blue crap, show notes are below. Try to enjoy it, I guess.



00:00 to 04:00: Intro: Introducing the podcast, your hosts, and a brief rundown of podcast news for the week.


04:12 to 18:25: The Mono-Blue Boogeyman: So I already went over the fact that everyone hates Blue. Here, we’re discussing whether the hate is deserved. Is mono-blue really THAT oppressive? When is blue GOOD for everyone? How much of this reputation is created by playing broken telephone with other players, and how much is based from experience in the real?


18:38 to 39:18: Mono-Blue: We are here to help you oppress your play group. Not only do we go over why you should use blue to destroy the souls of everyone at the table, but we also review blue’s soft spots so you can be careful to minimize them.

39:30 to 56:45: Mono-Blue Technology: These are some cards people might not hate enough in your playgroup yet.

56:55 to 1:19:30: Most Obnoxious Blue Cards: Here’s a list of blue cards that lots of people already hate. If you’ve never seen them before, you’ll probably hate them by the end of the segment (Teferi = dick).
