Episode 340 – So Much Khansy Goodness

Rite of the Serpent

This episode begins with another Sam Quiz, be warned!  After that there are a few bits of news to talk about, then it’s off to the full set of Khans of Tarkir!  We jump around the Card Image Gallery picking out stuff that’s cool, pointing out some seriously amazing art, and generally taking it all in.  It’s a fun episode and we hope you all enjoy!

Episode 339 – Looks Dragony

Pearl Lake Ancient

Be warned: this episode begins with another adorably cute Sam Quiz. Don’t listen to the first 3 minutes if you have a particular allergy to things that are “totes adorbs”.

PREVIEWS!  Khans previews are in full swing, and we’re talking about them all!  At least, everything on the Card Image Gallery the day we recorded plus the ones in the mothership articles that day.  There’s a ridiculous amount of cool stuff, including all the mana fixing you could ever want and lots of nifty rares.  So yeah, that’s what we’re doing this week, so hope you guys enjoy!

Episode 338 – Presumitably All the Big News

Jeskai - Narset, Enlightened Master

Since last week’s Exiled! was something we really wanted to do right, we focused on it exclusively and ignored the insanely huge news that dropped that week.  So this week we’re making up for it by going extremely deep on the new way that Magic blocks will be done.  And I mean it, we’re leaving no stone unturned here.

After that, we’re telling you all about the different clans of Tarkir!  We’re hitting their mechanics, their color identities, their khans, and anything else we can think of!  There were FAR too many preview cards to talk about this week, so we finish up by hitting the high notes and calling it done.

It’s a really long one (silence truncation knocked off, no kidding, 27 minutes!), but it’s a really good one!  Let us know what you think about the new Standard, the clans, and whatever else you can think of!
