  1. I particularly liked the discussion about Trinisphere and Tangle Wire. Never thought of it like that before and it certainly hit home. Trini is really only good in the early game, which is why it’s such a good choice for a restricted card, however, there is no denying, Wire is a much better overall card in Classic.
