We welcome Sierkovitz—limited data specialist, frequent 17lands.com and channelfireball.com collaborator, and actual ILYM listener—to the I Love You, Mana HQ for an incredibly scholarly jaunt. To Zach’s horror, Sierkovitz allies himself with Mike and chooses chaos over order for almost the entirety of the ep. Mike, Belly, Zach, and Sierkovitz talk about (18:30) Polish milk bars, American Football, the depravity of U.S. television advertisements, and Sierkovitz’s MTG origin story; (44:04) Belly delivers the cold open, which we learn is Sierkovitz’s favorite segment; (57:40) the pod is graced by a very special guest, Mike’s father—Joe Lester; (1:20:00) Zach finally talks about and plugs Sierkovitz unique analysis of MtG Arena limited data; (1:26:40) Zach and Sierkovitz face off in The War of “Who Said It?”; lastly, (1:32:27) we talk about the limited format for 15-contractually-obligated-minutes.
