On this week's Theorycraft Thursday Proud and Ursi set out to do one thing, and end up learning a whole lot about something completely different! Our segment revolves around the prevalence of midas, why you're seeing it so often, when it's strong vs. when it's not, and the math behind it all! For heroes we played support Phoenix with mid DK, but we end up focusing on the mid Viper we ran into for the most part, because their build and play was a real treat to learn from!
