Examining The MPL (MTG)
01:15:52
Cedric Phillips dials up log time pal and Magic Online superstar, Tommy Ashton, to talk about all things MPL. How did the two of them feel about yesterday's announcement by Elaine Chase?

Should be the MPL be about watching the best players play Magic or should it be about watching the most diverse players play Magic? Further, is there any way that the MPL can be both of those things? There doesn't appear to be a right answer to any of these questions but the two longtime friends try to find some anyway.
