In general, I didnt like these, they were too brief and off the cuff to be really helpful. I did however like the financial review. Things are going to be slow until Besieged shows up on MTGO. Hang in there.
Here is a downloadable, printable pdf with the commons and uncommons split by color and faction. Nothing fancy but handy none the less. It helped me decide to go Mirran. The removal seems better in Mirran and I feel like the only reason to go Phyrexian is to play infect. I could be an idiot. Tell me if you disagree in the comments.
