    This week Joey and bigheadjoe dig through the results of Players Tours Brussels and Nagoya, which I guess they are calling Players Tours Europe and Asia-Pacific, respectively. Whatever. We cast a watchful eye upon the Dimir Inverter deck especially, just as the pro players and WotC will need to do this weekend at Players Tour uhhh... Americas. Which is in Phoenix. Finally, we discuss Skura's U/W Thirst Trap deck which I just renamed as I was typing this. You're welcome, Skura. In addition to that, I make a number of other references that Joey doesn't understand.
