Episode 191 – Bigheadjoe and the Mechanics

Bigheadjoe and the MechanicsWe are joined this week by the highly entertaining Bigheadjoe of Yo! MTG Taps and formerly of SCG Live.  He fits right in as one of the dorks, and I think you’ll enjoy having him on to take Mike’s place this episode.  Hold out until the end to hear an announcement from Joe about his new wrestling podcast.

We begin with Brian’s experience at a recent FNM, followed by a massive bout of nostalgia.  I’m not entirely sure what that means, but I remember it was pretty awesome.  Then we have a nice discussion about the M12 Event Decks, FNM promo cards, and have a bizarre example of M12 print runs.  Blood Ogre, Angel’s Mercy, Garruk’s Companion, Child of Night – in that order, first four cards of all three packs I opened on the air.  What the hell?

Oh, and we finish the episode off with a nice big discussion about our favorite mechanics, a topic Dirk came up with a long time ago that we’re finally getting around to.  Yeah, we’ve been putting it off for at least a couple months.

I want to apologize for my (Chewie’s) voice doing the Max Headroom thing this episode.  It starts around a third of the way through, and it lasts the entire damn episode.  I have no idea what caused it, but since it’s just me and I wasn’t speaking as much as usual this episode, I just let it go.  Sorry again, hope you can make it through.

    I missed The Mike. Maybe Mike missing was the reason that the mike was… screwed up. Bighead Joe is awesome. I can feel his energy and lifeforce through the mike. I did not listen to the end, the mike made it like torture. Bring Bighead Joe back to give him a problem free episode.

    I love when Chewie’s trying to talk about Persist and his voice just keeps saying, “persist-persist-persis-ist-ist-ist…..”
