Episode 176 – Bludgeon Brawl at Lightning Helix Camp

New Phyrexia Expansion SymbolThis is one crazy episode we’ve got here for you, folks! New Phyrexia has been completely spoiled, and we decided to have fun with it this time. To that end, everything in this episode is a look at the new set, no exceptions (except for all the tangents, of course). I mean it, we had no other topics this time around, nothing else we wanted to talk about, not even listener mail! New Phyrexia is serious business, much like the internet.

And when Brian steps away for a few minutes on baby business, I bring in the heavy hitters. We’re joined by a pair of old friends (podcast whores) to look over all this new stuff. First off, joining us for a short while from his car, we have Eric of Many Names. Rubber pants are optional, of course. Then we’re joined by none other than our favorite Ben Shout-Out recipient…Ben! Known as Panahinuva on forums all across the internet, he had a class let out early and was able to join us for the second half of the show.

So yes, we’re just crawling with dorks. It was really a stupid amount of fun having these guys on the show to talk about the compleation of Mirrodin, you guys are gonna enjoy it! Find out which card makes Mike want to go lie down for a while, causes Brian to wish suicide on his opponent, and forces Dirk to consider rage-quitting. Also find out which card has flavor implications that had me laughing uncontrollably for a long time. I blame Ben and his roommate, personally.

    Opponent has karn ready to limit break next turn.
    My turn: I use liquid metal coating on karn then play metalic mastery taking karn and then use the limit break. lol

    He guys, don’t tout Brian’s horn more than he deserves! As I posted in mike’s spoiler-dump-post, Dirk got Jin-Gitaxis almost right, not Brian! 😉

    Eric’s Sound quality was really crappy before the break but it was ok afterwards.

    Nice episode allround though!

    You guys are keeping me sane and in touch with magic through my painful final year of high school, briefly replacing overwhelming stress with a giggle and relax. For that I can’t thank you guys enough. Keep ’em coming 🙂

    Hey Guys! Chewie, I thought you could use this: http://wiki.mtgsalvation.com/article/New_Phyrexia

    Send that out to the dorks for the next episode. It’ll be good to organize Brian’s thoughts and keep him at least in the realm of coherency. xD Thanks for the shows!!
