It is time! After a long, long, LONG time coming, we finally have our own exclusive preview card from Wizards of the Coast! It’s for the upcoming Eternal Masters set (in case you couldn’t tell from the ridiculous amount of EMA previews from the last couple days). If you want to cheat and check out the card, scroll ALL the way down to the bottom of this post to see it!

After we get done with our card we’re gonna go over even more previews as well as all the announcements we missed when we took off last week!

Smashing the Gearmaster! – Brawling with Buddies

TAVERN BRAWL! They’ve altered the Priest/Pally Mechazod Brawl just slightly to make it a little more interactive and fun!

Team up with a friend to take down the crazy clockwork gnome leader guy! He no longer Assassinates the minion with the highest power, now he just zaps it. That means divine shields are a LOT more useful than they were in the past, and this Brawl becomes even more cool!

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 Mike was good enough to help me out with no notice so I could actually get this one recorded at all this week! Thanks buddy!

Sorry again the video’s so late, but I had to go to GP Charlotte and record lots of things!

Peculiar Flavor Roundup – Count ‘er Spell? But There’s Just the One…

Peculiar Flavor Avatar

Welcome to the Peculiar Flavor Roundup!

Every day at Peculiar Flavor, we bring you rejected flavor text from some of your “favorite” Magic cards. Whether it’s a visual joke, an absurd one-liner, or a response to the real flavor text, it’s guaranteed to make you laugh.* Each Monday on the Roundup, you’ll get to see a few of last week’s, ah… best entries.

As a quick note, in addition to the URL above, Peculiar Flavor can now be found at FlavorText.LOL. It goes to the exact same site, I just thought it’d be fun to have a dedicated domain name.

On this Roundup: Might Weaver, Magister of Worth, Angelic Edict, and Ravaging Riftwurm!

Episode 419 – Recapturing the Magic

bfz vs soi

We weren’t terribly excited about Battle for Zendikar. We were SUPER excited about Shadows Over Innistrad. What’s the difference between these two sets? We’re diving into the differences between both cases of nostalgia to figure out what’s going on here. And since Brian’s not here, we spend a lot of time rambling and tangenting in his honor. And because that’s sort of what we do.

Be sure to stick around until the very end for a super awesome amazing announcement! And be sure to come back here on May 25th!
