This week, Hien and I talk about our initial impressions of Dragons of Tarkir. We start the show by cracking a DTK pack. After that, we jump into a more conversational episode about DTK, relying on our recent drafts and pre-release experiences. We briefly touch on some trap rare cards. Near the end of the episode, we get a bit more specific and talk favorite archetypes.
