Welcome to another episode of TuskTalk with Team Tusk. Today we have Evan Nyquist (HymnYou) from Team Tusk with Chicago Mage Danny Friedman from the Lords of the Pit Club. This cast is focused strictly on 93/94 aka Oldschool magic. Danny is one of the few people that have equal or more enthusiasm for this greatest magic format. Chicago’s scene has grown tremendously, and Danny brings his knowledge to the table, experiences and overall format knowledge. We dig deep into the format and some of Danny’s recent adventures including Noobcon, Chicago Invitationals, and upcoming premier event: The Oldschool Player’s Ball. This cast goes deep into the format from a lot of angles, but tried to keep it approachable for those new to the format. Cheers.
***EDIT: During quick legacy chat, there is a point where Song of the Dryads interaction with Jace and Thespian Stage is noted (copying enchanted Jace with stage). Although a judge told me this works due to layers, Sean O’Brien from Team Tusk noted that it would enter with no loyalty counters. If you Song of Dryads a plainswalker and use Vesuva to copy the plainswalker that will work due to vesuva getting ETB trigger.
