Episode 341 – Khans Prerelease Field Recordings

Khans of Tarkir - Mardu

It’s Prerelease time again!  You know what that means – Chewie and the dorks are heading out to play some Magic, and the digital recorder is coming with them!  On this episode, follow Mike and Chewie as they check out Khans on Saturday at Lucky’s Card Shop in Greensboro, then Brian joins them for Sunday to have a second go at the format!

Find out which clans the dorks played as well as what lots of other dorks in the room were playing!  Learn why Round Two is Chewie’s least favorite round number ever!  Marvel as Mike plays a supposedly crappy Sealed card to great effect!  And listen as Brian tells you all about his midnight prerelease experience in one go!

 

Intro & Outro Music – Diamond by Swift – http://www.myspace.com/swiftband
Break Music – First Place music from Excitebike on the NES
Quick Break Music – Pause Music from Battletoads on the NES

Random Card of the Day – Virulent Swipe

Virulent Swipe

I’ll hit Random Card on Gatherer and tell you all about what I get. Nice and simple huh?

This week I’m back after an extended absence to bring the Random Card back, now with even more nonsensical references!  And we get Virulent Swipe to talk about this week!

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!
