Episode 350 – We Ignored the Milestone

The Mana Pool 350

Yeah, we didn’t really care that this was a big milestone episode. It’s like we’ve done six other 50-episode increments!

We started off this episode with a bit of news, then go into one of Brian’s Magic Mad Libs! This one was pretty funny, so we hope you guys enjoy. All the links for the news are down below!

From there, we dove into the main topic of the episode. You know, once we finally all got on the same page during the musical break. We’re taking a deep look at the Abzan clan (not tribe!) of Tarkir. More specifically, we’re looking at how the colors (and guilds) that make up the Abzan work with the Outlast mechanic. This is a pretty good mental exercise that allows us to look at the fundamentals and see how all the pieces fit together, which is pretty nice.

Episode 349 – Dorksgiving Commander Shenanigans

Dorksgiving

Happy Dorksgiving everyone! Before Thanksgiving, Brian invited us all over to his house to have a big meal and some Magic. He also invited our good friend (and Monday Night Magic cohost) Bill Bloodworth (Squee) to join us. During all that time, we wanted to do a new installment of our Commander Shenanigans series, which we do whenever a new Commander product is released. To keep it from becoming an extra-long monstrosity of an episode, and since there were five monocolored decks, we decided to play a game of Star. If you don’t know what that is, don’t worry – we explained it in the show.

Since the Dorksgiving portion of the show was not an extra-long monstrosity, it just didn’t feel right. So we decided to put one of our Kickstarter backer rewards on here too! Two people took the “Send us a decklist and we’ll play it” reward tier – Michael Serrahn and Rachel Franzen. Michael sent in a mono-white Avacyn, Angel of Hope equipment-based deck, and Rachel submitted her “hippy-dippy Trostani EDH deck”. So Mike came over to Chewie’s house and after a VERY long setup time (holy crap), we knocked out a few games as promised!
