New Card Randomness! – Brawling with Buddies

TAVERN BRAWL! This week we’ve got another repeat Brawl, and it couldn’t come at a more opportune time! Sorry about the recording problems in this episode, I’m working with the software support team to figure out what’s going on!

It’s the return of the Brawl that gives us a bunch of random cards in a class of our choosing. That’s great because there are a whole mess of new cards to play with! I got to play with TGT cards I don’t have yet, maybe you will too!

I’ll be playing a few Brawl games for a video with someone on my friends list every week! Send me a friend request, my battle tag is TMPChewie#1888. This week Ecksell (or Squanto) was good enough to help me out. You can follow him on Twitter, his handle is EcksellHS. Thanks a lot my friend!

Vengeance WILL Be Mine! – Chandra Nalaar Story Pt 2

I’m finally back to continue Chandra’s fiery story! We begin this episode by setting a giant terrifying kitty on fire! Look, no one said Chandra was well-balanced.

Suddenly, Captain Barrel’s lieutenant shows up, burns down the village, kills our parents, and attacks us. If Chandra wasn’t a ginger pyromancer, this idiot would have just created another Batman!

Episode 385 – What Exactly Does Squad Mean?

We begin this episode with a first-impressions review of the Arena of the Planeswalkers miniatures board game! Three of us took the time to figure out how to play (sort of) and successfully completed a game! We’re coming at it from the perspective of Magic players trying it out, since most of us have no experience with miniatures games.

After that Brian’s got another Magic Mad Lib, which is more hilarious than usual when all is said and done!

And after that it’s time for a long-forgotten segment of the show – Out of the Deck Box! Because Chewie actually built a new Commander deck for the first time in some number of years, he’s gonna tell you all about it this episode!

Chewie’s Marath, Will of the Wild Commander Deck

marath thumb

Before our most recent gathering to actually play some Magic together, I felt the urge to do something I hadn’t done in well over TWO YEARS! What was that urge telling me to do? Build a new EDH deck!

I converted one of my favorite and most long-lived 60-card casual decks, the Beast Deck, into a brand new Commander deck! This is a deck I’ve had since I started playing again in college when Onslaught came out. Beasts were a supported tribe in that block, and they caught my eye then and have been much-beloved ever since.

A good chunk of this deck comes straight from the Naya-colored Commander 2013 deck. I had lots of space left when I got done adding in all the cards I wanted from the various versions of the Beast Deck and I didn’t have massive amounts of time to go digging for more cards to add. So if some of it looks familiar, that’s probably because it is. Likewise the mana base is not highly tuned or anything, I just did some rudimentary math and threw in a bunch of cool stuff.

This deck was featured in an Out of the Deck Box segment in Episode 385 – What Exactly Does Squad Mean?
