Random Card – Mana Vault

Random Card - Mana Vault

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

This time I’m joined again by my cohost from the podcast, Mike! Join us as we discuss this powerhouse of an old mana rock with a fairly intense drawback, Mana Vault! Also included in this episode: epic animation of a tangent, doubting Mike causes the internet to die, and the realization that we’re old.

- We use the Random Card button on Gatherer to find 8 creatures that go into a tournament bracket.
- We take their art, flavor text, and abilities into account and ignore their power and toughness.
