About Standard Intelligence:

Standard Intelligence is a podcast focussing on the standard competitive metagame in the UK&I. Its aim is to let you know which decks are doing well, decks that may be advantageous to play, and technology for you to use against the likely decks at your next standard event. The show is hosted by WPNQ grinders Jack Patten and Jonathan Partridge. Jonathan has been playing Magic since Theros and has a love of all things Green midrange, preferably with Courser of Kruphix. In the real world, Jonathan is a father, partner and project manager and hopes to get more involved magic coverage. Jack originally learned magic from a VHS tape in 1999, but only really started playing during Dragons of Tarkir. As a muggle, Jack will claim he is “The most overqualified house-husband in the world” having recently completed his PhD in Physics.
