Episode 168 – Tribal Time with Tom

Tribal GolemWhat an episode we’ve got for you this time!  We’ve got a new contest, a super-secret special guest host, and…well that’s about it.  But isn’t that enough?

Okay, contest.  If you want the full skinny, you’re gonna have to hit the website for the official rules and all that.  You can find it here:

Then there’s a quick look at the new Deckbuilder’s Toolkit, and some email, and really this was just a stalling tactic until our host arrived.  When he does arrive, holy crap it’s Tom from Monday Night Magic!  I’m not entirely sure how I managed it, but I talked him into recording with us for a while!  He joins us to give us some insight into a Quest for Ula’s Temple deck first, then we do some Tribal Story Circle shenanigans.  Of course with Tom on the job, all semblance of order went right out the window, so this isn’t so much a deck as it is a lot of nifty possibilities.  We start off with Sunrise Sovereign, the giant that makes all other giants infinitely more terrifying.  Then there’s the oldie-but-not-too-goodie Thrull Champion that made for an interesting deck idea.

After all that excitement, Tom turns and walks away, quite literally fading into the aether.  But we’ll never forget Tom, for our man-crushes are far too strong for that.  Now, did I forget anything?

    Ah, Tom. I got to meet him in real life, you know. He’s a real cool guy and has some mean-ass decks. The only reason I beat his Muse Vessel deck was because I was playing my milling deck which didn’t feature any serious on-board threats for him to steal and play. And I don’t remember how I beat his umbilicus deck, although I’m certain I did. Maybe by using Bant? No, Elves! That’s how I beat it. And then he whipped me black and blue with his Tsabo Tsabok EDH deck. It was pretty bad.

    Also, Tom apparently has infect. Living weapon hur hur hur.

    You fools almost forgot to shout out about my donation! See if I ever give you more unnecessary money!

    Also, if you didn’t want money, what’s the point of the donation button?

    Thanks for another great show guys, I always appreciate it. If I won the contest I’d trade any of the other prizes for the playmat if I could get all of you guys to sign it for me. Best. Prize. Ever!

    PS. Apparently I’m a robot since I always have problems with the ‘type in these squiggly letters and numbers’ -thingie. That is all.

    My first intelligent comment is that Ajani Goldmane was indeed reprinted with different art. He was the promo for Pro Tour Paris.
