EDHRECast 117: Setup and Payoff: Your Deck’s Synergy Ratio,Community Spotlight



“Synergy” is a very nebulous term, so this week the cast dives into the finer points of the deckbuilding template to examine how many card slots a deck tends to devote to its multi-part strategy. How many cards in your deck should help enable the deck in the first place, and how many do you need to help the deck turn the corner and win the game?
