Episode 600 – Exiled!

THIS IS IT! This number is just ridiculous, so we decided to do something ridiculous to celebrate! We are joined by four excellent guests to be contestants in the return of Exiled, our deckbuilding game show! It’s like Chopped, but with Magic cards! We’ve got the original voice of Casual Magic himself, Anthony Alongi (@anthonyaalongi), digital alterer and longtime listener ALK Alters (@AltersALK), content creator extraordinaire DeQuan Watson (@PowrDragn), and the always infectious & enthusiastic Chase (@ManaCurves).

Episode 599 – As Different As Night & Day

The dorks are back with another edition of There’s No Plane Like Home! Do you like happiness and sunshine and friendly creatures? Or do you prefer darkness, creepiness, and danger? Either way, do we have a place for you! Lorwyn is for the sunshine people, where the most dangerous thing to worry about is…well, racist elves running you through simply for being ugly. But other than that, there’s not much to worry about.

If horror and paranoia are more your style we’ve got Shadowmoor. Things wanting to kill or eat you are actually everywhere. In fact, one of the only safe parts of this world is…well, the friendly elves that are out to preserve beauty. Everything else either hates you, is terrified of you, wants to eat you, or is just mean and wants to kill you simply because you’re there.

Be sure to hang out for a sneak peek at what we’re doing for episode 600 and how YOU can help us out with it!
