Episode 198 – Innistrad Previews with Panahinuva

Innistrad Expansion SymbolYes, you read that correctly.  We are joined on this episode by Panahinuva, otherwise known as Ben.  He’s one of those omnipresent listener-types, and we love him for it.  Apparently, since here he is on the show again.

But we begin with some news.  Well, it was news when we recorded, I’m sure no one really cares much anymore.  But that’s okay, we still have to give you our take on it.  They made a slight change to drafting procedures vis a vis the double-faced cards.  The Banned & Restricted list has been updated, with Modern and Extended taking some pretty major changes in direction.  And there were a few key changes to the Commander Banned list too.  So we covered all of that of course.

Then there’s Innistrad.  At this point, the entire spoiler had been revealed, so we just went through each color, pointing at various cards and going “Ooooo” at them until we were done.  I love this set.

    YES, I’ve been waiting for the Unsolved Mysteries theme.

    I got an Undead Alchemist, a Trepanation Blade, and two Dream Twists in my sealed pool at the prerelease. It only all worked in full harmony once, but when it did it was glorious.

    Also, Trep Blade is particularly brutal against an opponent who’s mana-screwed or color-screwed, since it always at least mills a land.

    Hm… Mike is now a ‘game lore guru’ – someone is feeling mighty happy about himself right now 😛

    And Ben might be the only guest host that is comfortable enough to refer to the normal hosts with their names (disregarding the fitfth member, that suitcase guy/guru). That is awesome.

      I’m confused. How do other people refer to us if not by our names? :p

        I don’t know about everyone else but I devised a complex system where each host is referred to by a binary number that represents who they are by defining various traits that appear through the show (comedic value, rules knowledge, greenness, amount talked etc). Interestingly Brian’s code is over 1,000,000 digits long, and as such takes a very long time to say (coincidence, I think not =D)

          Yes, and it takes forever to tell people about the show. sigh

    On my old computer, when I right clicked Download, I would “Save Target As” which I thought was appropriate for this. Now it says “Save Link As” and that makes me a little sad.
