You know, videos. Instead of still images, the images move! And there’s usually audio involved too. Any kind of video we put on the site will go here.

Random Card of the Day – Ydwen Efreet

Ydwen Efreet

I’ll hit Random Card on Gatherer and tell you all about what I get.  Nice and simple huh?  This week I was exhausted after a long day of driving, and the random card button gave me a doozy.  Enjoy!

Chewie’s Johan CMDR Decks

103_johan

Hey look, it’s another CMDR Decks video!  I haven’t done one of these in forever!  Maybe even two forevers!  But Uriah (@CMDRDecks) was good enough to let me do this one to plug the Kickstarter as well as show off one of my favorite EDH decks!  It was originally conceived WAY back in Episode 219 during a Story Circle with guest host Bennie Smith (@blairwitchgreen), and I LOVED it!  I loved it SO MUCH that I tracked down a copy of Johan and set to work putting the deck together.

As usually happens when building a deck, new ideas came to mind and new cards popped into my head, so the version you see here isn’t straight from the Story Circle. Given my inability to procure new cards for the last little while, there are cards from the last couple blocks that would fit beautifully, but I haven’t managed to snag any of them just yet.  Feel free to throw any suggestions you want at me!

Whazzap! – The Mana Pool Edition!

Whazzap!

Here it is, the first video for The Mana Pool’s new YouTube channel! This is more of a proof-of-concept than actual content, giving me a chance to brush up on my image editing and learning to use video editing software. I’m confident now that I can do this for real videos with quality results.

Squee GTC Launch Sealed: Bombs Away

Some days you just can't get rid of a bomb

Squee fails at preparing for GP Charlotte by opening an absolutely absurd pool of cards that no one should ever see in a large event. You know you’ve got something when Mad Skills stays in the sideboard and Borborygmos isn’t even considered for a slot in the deck. Rather than the typical Squee voice, you’ll instead be treated to the smooth sounds of ambient videogame music in the background throughout each round as things get progressively more absurd. More or less every bomb in the format makes an appearance in the deck or on the other side of the virtual table, so this is your chance to get a top-level view of the format’s high points. Round 3 in particular has an absurd turn of events that you know left someone swearing profusely. Sounds like a Squee Sealed!
