    This week on Skullcraic, David hears back from the Judge Investigation Committee, and we also had Pro Tour Rivals of Ixalan, the return of the Modern Pro Tour! Many people are hailing it as one of the most enjoyable Pro Tours in years, so could this be the start of a Golden Era of Modern coverage? Our deck of the week is one of the most interesting and newest decks from the PT: B/R Hollow One as played by Ken Yukuhiro all the way to a Top 8 finish! In other news, Wizards have reversed their decision on FNM promos at last! This week also features the return of Craickling Doom after a short hiatus.

Stay tuned during Extra Turns for Alan's latest concoction: Craickling Doom!
