Welcome to The Birthing Pod, a brand new Competitive EDH (cEDH) focused podcast. Our hosts are asm, Wedge, and tw0handt0uch, all three of which are mods and mentors within the cEDH discord community. We hope to bring you guys some interesting insight and content about the going ons within the online world of fast mana and gross combos. 

Today's topics are:

1. Introducing The Birthing Pod

2. Brief overview of the current state of the cEDH meta as we have experienced it

3. Thoughts on new cards from Battle Bond (BBD)

4. Partners - Good, Bad?

Although we did not discuss it heavily in the podcast, the cEDH discord server is a great community to play games online budgetless for convenience or perhaps you don't have a playgroup near you. We also have a ranked league system where players can compete for points on the ranked ladder.
