Gemstone Mine - Black's Share of the Color Pie

Last year, we jumped on the updates that White could expect to see after Mark Rosewater's Mechanical Color Pie Update for 2021, and it's about time we started to talk about some of the other colors! This week, it's time to look at Black's share of the Color Pie! With strengths like unconditional tutors, creature removal, rituals and graveyard manipulation, Black is sometimes hamstrung by its own strengths. Curious about what the new direction for Black will mean for your decks? Be sure to check this episode out!
