Show Notes

Show notes provided by Sam Lowe
Brief recap:
- think carefully about potential pioneer bans before buying/selling -Teferi, Time Raveler, Oko, Thief of Crowns, Field of the Dead, Treasure Cruise, Dig Through Time, Nexus of Fate, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, are all on the watchlist
- sealed product from traditionally low-impact sets is likely undervalued due to future pioneer staples
- buy metagame staples before it's obvious that they're staples
- Right now that means Enter the Infinite and Possibility Storm -don't forget about Commander Finance because it's still king
