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). This is a long one (of course) but it’s SO MUCH FUN the entire time! Who will come out on top as the Exiled Champion?

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!

The dorks are back! After a wonderful discussion about the Cube Rule of Food Classification, which is very important by the way, we’re doing another Mythic Conscription! This time we’re doing Planeshift, the second set of the Invasion block. Planeshift is…problematic. You’ll see what we mean.

Episode 597 – Double Double Toil & Trouble

The dorks finally take a look at Double Masters! It’s a reprint set, so it’s a little weird to talk about all these cards that we already know about, but we managed to remember how to do it! After we give you the news about YET ANOTHER new kind of booster, that is. That doesn’t show up until Zendikar Rising though, so who even cares right now, right?

Episode 596 – Hello Darkness My Old Friend (Heirs of Trivester)

But yeah, with the party split during the last episode we were really hot to try to get back together, even though we literally had no idea what the other part of the group was up to. And since I haven’t listened to any of the other part, I don’t actually know how to write this. Let’s just say some crazy stuff happens and leave it at that, shall we?

Wait, what? The dorks are doing a second RPG episode…IN A ROW? Inconceivable!

Also, an update on the YouTube side of things at the end!
