A general discussion of the great Fate Reforged two drops Soulfire Grand Master and Jeskai Sage. Did we say “great”? Interesting discussion from Patrick turns Mike around on a previously not-loved Jeskai Sage.

Editor’s Note: Patrick and Mike muse on using Soulfire Grand Master to recycle Temporal Tresspass. Temporal Trespass exiles itself so this is not a possible interaction.
