About this Episode

This week it's all about the NRG Championship Series event in Chicago. We dive deep into the data, the most popular decks, the sickest plays, and the cherished friendships that make an event like this possible. We go over the top 10 (or so) decks of the weekend, break down the overall metagame, talk with a few players from the floor of the tournament, and hear how Stan did in the swiss (spoiler: pretty well!).

Intro: Number One Horn Player Meets Captain Cascade
The Break Down: Pivots and Points Per Pilot
The Break Down, 2: What Do We Think Now?
