Karim, Alaric, and The Angel are back to explore more of Trivester and see what they can get into! We’re heading towards a huge tree, losing our way, and getting into a scrape with goblins! At least I get to use my awesome sword! Much love to Jars for the amazing map! Here’s a link: http://themanapool.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/trivester-map-logo.png
After that, we’re catching up on stuff – Mike’s prereleases, Dirk’s job hunt, Chewie’s trip to Busch Gardens, and Brian’s anniversary!
In case you’re completely lost, Brian created this MTG RPG from scratch and we periodically play it on the show. This campaign is called Heirs of Trivester. If you’d like to hear the previous installments, here are some links to get you caught up!

The dorks are covering the rest of Hour of Devastation since the full set was revealed immediately after we recorded last week. There are quite a few bits of good stuff left. There’s a lot of art on commons and uncommons that is just awesome too, so we’ll be sure to point that out.
And there are discussions of StarCraft and copyright claim at the end. Just a warning.
The dorks are taking another look at Hour of Devastation previews! Torments, afflictions, curses, eternalization, more Hours, and lots of sand. I hate sand. It’s coarse and rough and irritating…and it gets everywhere.
Also, now ALL my horses can be amazing, and there’s a zombie camel. Oh yeah, you read that right.

The Hour of Devastation looms near! Brian is getting attacked by malicious flying creatures and Dirk is being stalked by the gods of sleep, but at least Mike’s beard is still glorious. Thank goodness.
In case you can’t tell, we’re covering the early Hour of Devastation previews. The Invocations, the mechanics of the set, and all the really sick stuff that had shown up at this point. Bolas is a bad bad dude, and we’re really concerned about what’s going to happen. This whole story is getting seriously dark and depressing.
