Episode 180 – Headline: M12 Goes Bloodthirsty, Dies

Furyborn HellkiteEven though we ran through over 30 emails in the last episode, we still have more! So we took another chunk out of the remaining emails. I really enjoy doing lots of listener mail, because it lets us talk about all kinds of things we wouldn’t ordinarily talk about. For instance, an email gave me a perfect segue into discussing a new repacked product thing I got at Target!

But of course, we had to talk about lots of other things this episode! Which we were able to do, because Brian couldn’t be with us. Apparently he couldn’t stop coughing for more than a few seconds at a time, so he opted out. Of all people though, Dirk really picked up the slack Brian left us. He’s on fire! (be sure to read that in the NBA Jam announcer voice)

As far as what other stuff, it was all M12 all the time baby! Well not really, but we did talk about all the M12 stuff that has come to light since our last recording. It’s all down there in those links

    This really needs to go up on Itunes faster. Great show.

    Regarding Sorin Markov’s +2 ability. They totally copied Wet Willy of the Damned. So… I just lost all respect for our Emo Vampire.

    Yo, great show as usually. ive been listening since episode 18. Yep, long time, 1st time and all that. I’m a bit of a vorthos, so on the topic of wedge naming, during apocalypse, when I started playing, there was multiple cycles of card that dealt with a color “allied” with both its enemy colors: WBR dega, URG ceta, BGW necra, RGU raka, and GUB ana. Hope that helps some. Again, great show, great new show, just all around greatness. +2 to Chewie’s ego!

      Ah, I had forgotten about those. I even used to have some of the “sactuaries” in my 5-color deck. Thanks for reminding us!

    I’ve acctually had to deal with prototype portal on prototype portal with a memnite on one of the copys and on other copies; throne of Geth, tumble magnet, and other stuff. Also this episode helped me not be bored out of my mind during the thunder storm/tornado warning while there was no power. You guys are awesome!

    Something that popped into my head as I read about M12’s bloodthirst (I’m returning to the game after a long, long, long time away, so it was new to me) was interacting with proliferate to make big things even bigger.

    Maybe a red/blue deck with red bloodthirsty creatures + blue tools to make ’em bigger?

    In any case, I really enjoy your show, so thanks for doing it!

      As a completly new player, I look back at Magic’s history, and there are soooo many things that proliferation could work with.
