Episode 568 – Happily Ever After

The dorks dive once more into the Throne of Eldraine previews! We’ve got plenty of cycles to finish – hybrid cards, lands, uncommon knights, legendary creatures and artifacts, lots of stuff! While we’re at it we’re bouncing around and hitting whatever other good stuff we can find, whether it’s super flavorful, an obvious fairy tale reference, or blatantly powerful. We’ll even hit that one blue mythic (yeah, you know the one) and discuss reasons it could be mythic and just how powerful it really could be.

Episode 564 – The Magnor Stack

Back in June, I got a mystery package in the mail from longtime listener Magnor Criol. Inside was an amazing thing that took an insane amount of time, effort, and dedication to create. We’ve decided to call it the Magnor Stack. It was a collection of cards, real and custom, that represented a new way for us dorks to play Magic whenever we get together. The custom cards were all in-jokes of some sort, and a lot of the real cards had new flavor text that were references to our silliness.

We finally got together to play this weekend, and 2/3 of our games were played with the Magnor Stack. And IT. WAS. AWESOME! On this episode we’re just going to show off a bunch of the cards from the Stack that we played and what was going on when we played them.

Huge huge HUGE thanks to Magnor Criol for the amazing gift! We love it and we’re totally gonna keep playing with it whenever possible!
