#86 - KAI BUDDE

SEPTEMBER 5, 2013: Horde of Notions is brought to you by Face to Face Games, Canada’s #1 source for MTG singles and products.

In the world of Magic: The Gathering, certain personalities are known by one name. Finkel, Paulo, Kibler, Bob…and Kai. Chris and Will are honoured to be joined by the one and only Kai Budde to discuss a whole load of things, including:

Is he better than Jon?
Was there ever a true rivalry between him and Jon or was the goal always to go out, win and beat every opponent whether Jon was one or not?
Why was he so dominant?
How did Voidmage Prodigy come about and how does he feel about it?

Plus his thoughts on today’s players, deckbuilders, Theros, the Pro Tour and much much more! You do NOT want to miss this one!
