Episode 479 – Interesting Cannon Ammunition

ep479

This episode begins with super sexy Unstable lands. Then we bounce around Iconic Masters and try to figure out 1) what exactly is the point of this set? and B) why are there so many kitties in the art?

After that it’s back to Ixalan! There’s still a lot awesome stuff here to talk about, including the new Vraska, terrors of the sky, and what weird monkey goblins put in cannons.

Episode 478 – Arena and Paleontology

ep478

We recorded this the same day as the MTG Arena reveal, so the first part of the episode revolves around that. How we feel about what we’ve seen, expectations, hopes & dreams, that sort of thing.

From there it’s time to dive into more Ixalan! There’s the new Cradle, the old dinosaurs, the promos, and of course, the Card Image Gallery! This set is a crazy mishmash of lots of things that nerds love…and also Merfolk.

Yarrr, it be a Sam Quiz, then story time! After that it’s time to talk Ixalan! There are feathered dinosaurs, pirates with their treasure, beautifully colored merfolk, and religious fanatic vampires. This set is gonna be AWESOME! We also get to look at the new Jace and the new (lack of) Planeswalker Uniqueness Rule. After that we dive into a bunch of the revealed cards and marvel at how much fun all the lady pirates seem to be having. Yarrr!

Episode 476 – The Post-Eclipse Pretender Episode

mairsil eclipse

After a brief discussion about Fuller House and a not-so-brief discussion about our experiences with the Great North American Eclipse, we’re actually going to talk about Magic! Seriously though, the total eclipse was amazing and moving. Like wow.

We’re doing a Commander 2017 Story Circle! After discounting the Eminence commanders and a few of the less interesting legends in the set, we finally decided on Mairsil, the Pretender. The problem with Mairsil is…I guess you’ll just have to listen and find out what the problem with Mairsil is!

Episode 475 – Travis the Cursed

travis the dork cursed

Let us tell you a tale, a tale of a dude. That dude is Travis, and he just keeps having problems. Poor Travis. Maybe if he wasn’t so awesome he wouldn’t run into so much trouble. Or maybe he just really sucks.

Hey look, Brian’s back! And look, we have a lot more Commander cards to talk about! Yay! And look, the Cat Dragon token is SO ADORABLE! I WANT ONE!

Please excuse Chewie’s mic the first 2.5 minutes of this episode. That was weird.
