Learning from Lords of Limited
I found the Lords of Limited podcast entirely by chance, while scrolling through posts online. Someone had off-handedly recommended the podcast. They claimed that the show’s advice had been incredibly helpful to them in understanding the game. My first thought, based on the name alone, was that it was a YouTube channel focusing on limited. A quick google search proved me wrong, and it led me to listen to my first episode. The ninety-minute length is a bit daunting, and I had assumed it was going to be mostly useless commentary and fluff. I couldn’t have been more wrong. After listening to a few others, my first episode “Episode 199: Strixhaven Set Review” is still my favorite. My favorite, and perhaps the most useful, moments are the mechanic discussions between the two hosts. These segments not only build an extensive knowledge of an individual set, they also build the ability to make accurate judgments. Looking at your differences in grading and listening to your thought process in analysis have built up my own ability to make an assessment. Previously, jumping blindly into a new set was like a death sentence. Now, I feel confident in my capability to do well. And it shows in the results. Every single episode is filled with so much information and not a single second goes to waste. It’s no surprise there is a long list of new Patrons every time. I personally don’t have the means to become one of them myself, but the access to the community Discord makes it tempting. Further, the prospect of the in-dept community engagement is very enticing. Enough that I felt the need to write this review to encourage others and support the show. My only problem with the show is that it can quickly turn into a thick sludge of material. A veritable bombardment of advice. The episodes normally have the sponsor segment as the final topic, but I would appreciate it being somewhere in the middle to segment the hour and a half more cleanly. Also, I’m pretty sure Ethan is the only one who changes his grading on the excel sheet throughout the analysis. I hope Lords of Limited continues on just as successfully into the far future.

This podcast is perfect for anyone interested in limited MTG, wherever they like to play it. Ben and Ethan are great drafters and go to lengths to get to the heart of what makes every set tick. The weekly draft roundtables are much more informative than the typical crack-a-pack / p1p1 you’ll...Read full review »
