Min | UW Miracles vs UWr Miracles with Luke Strasler | Legacy Testing

Today we’ve got something a bit special! I invited Luke Strasler (@Lightlee_Salted) to do some Legacy testing with me! We tried out two different UW variants against a stock UWr configuration of Miracles to see how much of a difference access to Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast made, as well as what different play patterns and cards UW could employ to overcome that. Please enjoy the playlist below, and particularly the Conclusions video at the end!

Editors Note: Sadly some of Luke’s audio cut off a bit and we were unable to fix that issue in post-editing. We’ll use a different voice chat client next time we do content like this!
