Episode 546 – Tolkien, with More Clanking and Meowing

The dorks are back with another edition of There’s No Plane Like Home! We’re tackling (sort of) three planes this episode…and they’re all the same plane! We’re starting on Argentum, then moving on to Mirrodin, and ending on New Phyrexia! From quiet empty paradise to mostly good generic fantasy world (plus metal) to horrific war zone, we’re covering the entire history of the plane! Doesn’t that sound like fun? It’s actually not as bad as you might think! You know, until the Phyrexians show up and everything falls apart.

Episode 545 – Firebreathing and Tree Pants

After some technological difficulties on Mike’s part, the dorks decide to forge ahead without him! We’re doing a Mythic Conscription for Visions, the follow up to Mirage. But where Mirage was loaded with good fodder for a Mythic Conscription, Visions is a little less…diverse.

Episode 543 – Jungles & Panthers & Ants Oh My

The dorks are back on Trivester with Brian’s custom MTG RPG! This episode is pretty heavy on the combat encounters and light on the narrative, but I’m sure we’ll get back to the mystery in the next installment! If you want to know who gets mauled horribly out of nowhere, who is stalking the party through the jungle, and who you should have rolling your D20s, you’re in for a treat!

Episode 542 – Dirk Ruins Everything

Don’t worry, Dirk doesn’t really ruin EVERYTHING. In fact, Dirk was on fire for most of this episode. Like in Overwatch or NBA Jam, not like actual fire. Anyway…

This episode we’re putting Mirage through a Mythic Conscription. And unlike several of the Conscriptions we’ve done for older sets, this one actually has plenty of cards to talk about. During the episode we even dig up some actual recent evidence for why certain cards would be mythic! Be sure to let us know what you think about Mirage’s potential mythics!
