Welcome one and all to News of the Realm! Here’s what we and our friends had going on for the week leading up to April 22nd, 2022.

Our Friends

Loading Ready Run Drafted some KND with Numot, chatted with Numot and Marshall on Tap Tap Concede, cracked SNC Collector Boosters with both Marshall and Numot…oh and there was a Pre-Prerelease, I think.

Numot drafted a whole bunch of Tinkerer’s Cube on Arena, a little bit of KND, and one flashback to Zendikar Rising.
