Chewie’s Mom Opens Packs: Khans of Tarkir Edition

Chewie's Mom Opens Packs: Khans of Tarkir Edition

D’awww, Mom’s so cute!

Better late than never! During our Thanksgiving vacation, Chewie and his mom took some packs of Khans of Tarkir to Nana’s house. After everyone left and Nana went to bed, we turned on the webcam and opened some packs! And since Mom is so cute, it was pretty hilarious. Hope you guys enjoy!

Be sure to let me know what you think! How’s the background music? The editing? Want to see more? Was this a waste of everyone’s time? Let me know!

Random Card – Terramorphic Expanse

terramorphic expanse small thumb

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

This time it’s a frequently-reprinted common originally from Time Spiral! Because Terramorphic Expanse has a functional reprint in Evolving Wilds, I just included both of them in the video. Between the two cards, they’ve been printed 27 times! That should tell you just how basic and useful they are. Who doesn’t love a free basic slow fetchland? They’re not flashy, super efficient, or expensive but that doesn’t stop them from being really good cards!

Episode 365 – Stronghold: Very Weird

Sliver Queen Bling

This episode begins with a discussion of the new Commander rules change that eliminates tucking and bouncing of Commanders. The dorks are split for and against this particular change, let us know how you feel about it!

Next up is a Mythic Conscription for the next set in the Tempest block – Stronghold! This is a seriously strange set, as each of us had trouble actually finding ten mythics! But the discussion is really interesting and entertaining. Let us know what you think should or should not have been mythic!

And finally, the dorks tell you all about their Prerelease experiences! Brian and Mike did two apiece and Chewie did one, so you’ll get to hear all about that! What did you play and how did you do?

Let the Wookiee Win #5 – Heroic Noth the Plaguebringer | Hearthstone

5 - Noth the Plaguebringer small thumb

Chewie takes on the Noth the Plaguebringer with his Robert Smith deck (The Cure, duh)! How many tries will THIS one take? Maybe it was another one-shot? Maybe Noth kicked the crap out of me multiple times? I guess you’ll just have to watch and find out!

After the hell Maexxna put me through, anything would have been better. To combat Noth’s passive hero ability, I built a deck with lots of spells and only a few sturdy creatures. This one was actually a lot of fun, so I hope you enjoy as much as I did!
