      1. Why?
      2. Ryan discusses some with Zack
    2. Deck outside Zack’s comfort zone - Boros / Aggro
      1. Lenny (@LennyWooley)
        1. Mono red is outside my comfort zone. I can brew it but I don't like playing it because it's not great at defense and I can't make plans with its card advantage. 
        2. 5 color is also really tough unless I have a very specific idea in mind. Otherwise I get paralyzed by all the opportunity
        1. I struggle with playing blue. In particular the whole counterspell/draw go style. I feel bad countering someone's spell and even worse countering their commander, because I find it less enjoyable to play, I play it less which means I'm worse at it.
      2. Craig -(@Scraignoth)
        1. I'm an Aggro/Midrange player and have always struggled with control. I taught myself how to play control and that helped me to understand how better to fight against control. That being said blue is the color that eludes me the most but I'm always trying to expand my prowess in commander. my main problem is I'm a very proactive player and blue intrinsically plays a reactive game
      3. Andy Bently (@BentzMr)
        1. my main problem is I'm a very proactive player and blue intrinsically plays a reactive game
        2. After he left his comfort zone to play black - It took a second to get in a groove cause of what I’m typically drawn to, but once I got going, I really hit a groove. I kinda role played it. Since I’m a Dimir mage, I approached it as I was spying on everyone else to learn their secrets
        3. #MtgAmatureFinance also taught me what I don’t really like so I avoid spending on stuff that won’t hold my interest long term
      4. Chris von Doom (@chrisvondoom1)
        1. Discuss
      5. Four patrons have specifically spoken about blue control

  8. Main Topic - Decks Outside Our Comfort Zone
    1. Stretch one’s horizons to include new things
    2. Understand your opponents strategies better
    3. Poker example, players that only put their chips in when they have the best hand
    4. So, has anyone out there stepped outside their comfort zone? Let us know!
  9. Wrap it up - why should we play decks outside of our comfort zone
