Episode 190 – Quick Hits (Well For Us Anyway)

Creepy DollBefore recording this episode, I put out a call for some topics that we could talk about that required no preparation ahead of time, and boy did you guys come through!  We got a whole massive list of stuff to talk about.  After we covered the Innistrad news from the San Diego Comic Con, of course.  Don’t let’s be silly.  Mark Rosewater tweeted a recap of the information that was revealed, and I gathered up all those tweets so we could then share them with all of you listeners out there.

We go through a few emails, which is where we get our first major discussion.  Tosus asks what he should do with his $500 worth of free stuff, so we kick that around for a bit.  Then there’s a bit of reflection on the multiplayer products Wizards has released over the last few years, followed by a discussion on whether or not Commander should become a sanctioned format.  Then there’s some serious discussion about how to keep things fresh when playing with the SAME people all the time.  Even if it’s the SAME people using the SAME decks, you can still change some stuff up to make it fun, and we’re gonna give you some suggestions.

Thanks to everyone who gave us some show ideas, we’re gonna hold on to the ones we didn’t get to for future shows!

    Listening right now to the cast & that pack of revised was collated correctly.

    The 3 cards before the Mishra’s War Poop WERE uncommons. I started at the tail end of unlimited & you could open a “rare” island out of the Beta & Unlimited packs (I think Alpha had 2 rare basics due to the omission of Volcanic Island.

    If you think your pack was miserable you should buy a Revised starter & try to build a 40 card sealed deck with it. When we did it in tournament we could not add extra basic lands. That was a miserable format.

    Hey Mike,

    Just heard you bad revised pack… but Mishra’s War Machine was only printed in 4th… did you buy a 4th edition pack? If not, sounds like a re-pack!

      Nah dude, the War Machine was definitely printed in Revised and Antiquities before it was in Fourth. Mike knows his stuff, trust me 😉
