Ep. 12 – Interview with Aaron Gertler, Dreamhack Champion!

This week we bring you another interview with friend of the podcast and returning guest, Aaron Gertler. Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks, you’ll probably recognize him and Temur Clover deck from taking down Dreamhack Anaheim. He’s been consistently #1 Mythic with this deck, and now he’s proven it can go all the way in a high-stakes tournament.

More and more pro players, as well as the larger Magic community, are starting to take notice of Temur Clover as a serious contender for best deck in Standard right now. On this episode, we discuss the deck, the most common matchups, reflect on Aaron’s performance at Dreamhack, and get into some of the subtler interactions in the deck. We also cover sideboarding and get some thoughts from Aaron on the shape of the meta at the moment.
