At the risk of turning the End Step into a weekly comment spam post, I’d like to pass along another fine example of the genre: “I just like the valuable information you supply to your articles,” Study Habits for Middle School Students writes. “I’m somewhat sure I will be informed many new stuff proper right here!”

I’d like to personally thank SHfMSS for writing and to assure him/her that thousands of other readers somewhat share his enthusiasm for Hipsters of the Coast.

This week, Rich Stein discussed the ins and outs of format stagnation and Zac Clark posted his take on the Standard meta as we wait for Dragon’s Maze.

Last weekend, Matt Jones stumbled at a local PTQ with Prime Speaker Bant, while limited master Hunter Slaton crashed and burned with Naya Humans.

On Monday, Jess Stirba competed in the 20SS Commander League and found that the power level of the meta was unexpectedly high, whereas known scrub Giaco Furino couldn’t have had more fun bringing a knife to a gun fight.

Elsewhere, Zach Barash explored how new sets can shake up an already well-defined limited format, as Jess Stirba wrote about her process and evaluation of her very own Pauper Cube. Matt Jones took a look at some preview art from the Dragon’s Maze spoiler season, and Li Xu gave in and booked his ticket to GP Vegas.

Have a good weekend! See you on the other side.
