Thoughts

It's a 57-11 core this week, which makes for a lot of little intersting differences. sixmp's Lotus Petal and SingPanMan's Watery Grave are things we can expect at this point, and the rest is mostly if people wanted Peek or Portent and Chain of Vapor or a Flusterstorm.
We actually do see a Modern Horizons 2 card in Murktide Regent. I tried this in the main for a league this past week and it was... fine? It's not something we need.
It seems that while Doomsday did not get much, if anything from MH2, it is the sideboard where we need to pay attention. More copies of Tabernacle, and playing around cards like Endurance mean a change to how we play, not what we play.
