The dorks dive into Jumpstart! First we’ll explain what it is, and the concept is actually pretty neat. Then we’ll jump into the Card Image Gallery and go through all the new cards in it. The new cards are mostly really cool. Oh, and there are Legendary creatures that have actually interesting abilities! Remember those? Wow!
New Shrines! Sure there are lots of other neat cards too, but new Shrines! There are new card versions of old characters, which is pretty awesome. We get to see more of Teferi’s family. There are lots of doggos and kitty-kitties! Bronto-Dave is back! There are neat twists on old standard effects (Traitorous Greed is really cool)! There are some SWEET new goblins if that’s your thing! There are some nifty brain-bending pieces of art alongside nifty brain-bending card text!
But really, none of that matters. Because NEW SHRINES!
The dorks are back with another edition of There’s No Plane Like Home! This time we’re taking a look at everyone’s favorite (?) time-travel affected plane, Tarkir. Tarkir is based on various real-world Asian countries, so the physical aspects of the plane don’t really change through the versions.

In the Dragons timeline you’re subservient to your dragon overlords. And in the Khans timeline…well that’s actually not so bad. The one thing that is consistent throughout all timelines is that the Sultai… are just awful. The worst.Continue reading
We now return to Trivester for another installment of Brian’s custom MTG RPG! After the last installment’s massive exposition dump Karim, Alaric, and the Angel are off to track down someone else that might have some idea what’s going on. Along the way we’ll be accosted by various critters that could potentially want to kill us. And of course, our beloved soldier boy really has a hang-up about fighting animals. Even when they’re killer bees with little swords and shields!
After we’re done with the RPG bit the final thoughts turn back to current events. You have been warned.Continue reading
