The Salt Mine Episode 16 ft Callum Smith aka Whitefaces – The Unexpected Rise of Miracles and Canadian Thresh.

 

We’re back!

Happy New Year dear listeners!

We leap into 2018 with a longtime friend of the cast, Callum Smith also known as Whitefaces on MtgtheSource and Magic Online.

In this cast we take an in-depth look at the new Miracles lists that Callum has helped to pioneer and examine the strengths and weaknesses of these “topless miracles” decks. We also look at Canadian Threshold, a deck which Sean and friends have been carving up the tournament scene with here in Australia and around the world.
