Episode 362 – Dragons / Tempest

Dragon Tempest

Since neverending preview season is upon us yet again, we’re taking a look at the first batch of new cards from Dragons of Tarkir. Previews just started the day before we recorded, so there aren’t terribly many yet. Don’t worry though, we’ll make up for that on the next couple episodes.

Because we were so short on previews, we had to fill the time with something. Last week they announced Tempest Remastered for Magic Online, so what better way to finish the episode than to run a Mythic Conscription on Tempest? We couldn’t think of anything better either, so that’s what we did! Man, old Magic sets are SO incredibly bizarre by today’s standards.

Let the Wookiee Win #3 – Heroic Maexxna | Hearthstone

maexxna small thumbnail

Chewie tackles the Heroic mode of Naxxramas, the first Adventure for Hearthstone! Maexxna is all that stands between us and finishing the Arachnid Quarter. And let’s not forget how much Chewie hates spiders. Nah, I’m sure this will all work out in the end, right? Right?

Be sure to tell me how you liked the video. Rather than have it drawn out for 43 minutes, I did some judicious editing. I’m still not back to 100%, but hopefully I was able to keep you all entertained in this one. And let me know what you guys think of the series in general! I’m still trying to get everything dialed in, but I’m definitely enjoying it!

Episode 361 – The Conveniently Recorded Live Episode

Ep. 361 Generals

This episode was recorded at Brian’s house last weekend! And thank goodness it was, because we didn’t record a new episode this week because Chewie got sick and died. How convenient!

But yes, in this extra-long episode we play two games of four-player Commander! Nothing fancy this time, no Planechase, no Archenemy, no Tiny Leaders, no Assassin. Just good old EDH at its best! The first game was really good, while the second game was a normal good.  It was not one of those bad drag-on games that we sometimes accidentally record. There’s really not much else to say, we hope you guys enjoy these games as much as we did!
