As far as freelances go, Czar did say the five-out freelances were reverted to four-out for now, and touched on the five-out isolation plays as well to make those four out as well.

This week, the newest slate of Perfect Team cards celebrates the all-time best mustaches in the history of the sport – and introduces a card that has quickly become a collector’s dream and a Perfect Team club’s prized possession!
