Episode 460 – Duster the Crash Test Mummy

duster the crash test mummy

There are a few bits of quick news that popped up over the last few days, but none of that matters. What matters is the full Amonkhet set is up! Sadly, you don’t get to hear us discuss the whole thing, because some manner of technical difficulty resulted in the loss of the last…hour? Or so? Sorry about that, I have no idea what happened or why. It sucks. Let the cavalcade of links begin!

Episode 459 – Gods and Callbacks

amonkhet3

We have now seen all the Gods of Amonkhet, and they’re pretty neat. We’ve also got a few stand out cards that will be powerful in various formats, like Harsh Mentor. We’ve got a few completely bizarre cards that will hopefully snatch a few games for people. We’ve also got a new and possibly improved Krosan Tusker, a new Desert, a fixed Unstable Mutation, and Fling. What is going on here?

Also, some discussion about the story of Amonkhet and beard oil. Not at the same time though. That would just be weird. Buh.

Episode 458 – Invoking Amonkhet

amonkhet ep

The Age of Amonkhet is upon us! The new Masterpieces are called Invocations and they have the entire internet in an uproar. We’ll touch on all the problems people have had and give our opinions. Then we’ll cover all the mechanics and a handful of cards that are just sick, including a pair of awesome planeswalkers. The new set looks like fun!

Episode 456 – Ultimate Kombat Smashy-Smashy Face Punch: Konflict F4rce

musical hatchling

This episode is a truly strange one. Brian’s not here, he got sick and died since I saw him the previous night. We have a sponsor this week, Easy Roller Dice Co. We grabbed Cap from Lair of Lore to join us. We’ve got a truly epic listener-submitted Mad Lib. And our Flavor Fight has a dance number in it. Yup, it’s definitely a weird one.

For those that don’t know, the original incarnation of this segment was Mortal Instinct Fighter Calibur Vs. We use the Random Card function to find creatures, then pit them head to head in a single elimination tournament using only flavor to guide us! This time I limited the random creatures to the uncommon rarity just to keep the power level somewhat even. And it got bizarre this time. Do you believe in life after love? Do you like Hamilton? You’re gonna love this!

Just don’t click this, trust me. It’s The Slug from Marvel Comics.
