Episode 199 – Prerelease and Rules, Lots of Rules

Innistrad Expansion SymbolWe are joined this week by Amanda Stevens, one of the originators of RedSiteWins.com and hosts of Red Cast Wins.  You guys remember her, right?  She interviewed us a long while back.  And it’s a good thing, because Brian was unable to join us this week.  Anyway, we’ve got to talk about the Innistrad Prerelease, because we recorded this right after that happened.  Mike, Brian, and Chewie (that’s me) all went to the tourney, so find out how we did and what we pulled.  Amanda did some spellslinging at her prerelease, so there’s another nifty story.  Of course, then we’ve gotta talk about how we like the set as a whole and all that.

There was a rules update!  Some of the updates are actually pretty cool, so we had to talk about them.  If you’d like to follow along at home, just click here.

From there, we tackled our mountain of listener emails.  There were a lot of rules questions, funny comments, and completely random nonsense that have built up over the last several weeks.  So we’ve got to share those with you.  Whether you like it or not.  But I think you’ll like it.  So there.

    Re: the question about similar art.

    Wasn’t there a story about some pro player getting some kind of punishment during an ONS Block limited event because they mistook one of Onslaught’s “blue blobby mutant wizards” for another? My memory is telling me that it was Finkel, but I can’t find anything to corroborate the story.

    But if it’s true, Mike is in good company.

      I can’t remember who it was, but I’m pretty certain the cards were Whipgrass Entangler and Daru Sanctifier. He thought he was playing a Sanctifier face-down, but when he flipped over his stuff at the end of the game, it was an Entangler, and he got a game loss for it.

    RE: where I heard about The Mana Pool

    As you guys speculated, it was from Stybs’ article on podcasts. The Serious Fun column on the MTG site is my favorite one to read. I think I’m doomed to be a casual player…thanks a lot, guys.
