Tusk Talk Podcast Episode 18: Top Banned, Gush & Probe Restricted, and Team Tusk Going Off

Welcome to another episode of TuskTalk with Team Tusk. Today we have Evan Nyquist (HymnYou), Sean O’Brien (Nedleeds), and Josh Hand (Megadeus). Sensei’s Diving Top is now banned in Legacy. Gitaxian Probe and Gush are now restricted in Vintage. Reactions, analysis, small predictions, and bad cards. Legacy talk, Vintage talk, and then back to Legacy talk. Rated R, for Mature Audiences. (Editor’s Note: If you have delicate sensibilities, this is probably not for you).
