Episode 204 – Hyper Instinct Turbo Third Strike Game of the Year Edition Alpha

ArenaIt’s that time again, where we use Gatherer to find a group of unwitting creatures to beat the crap out of each other for our amusement.  I mean…to compete for fame and glory on the battlefield. And charity! Yeah, that’s it. Look, what’s the point of being able to summon up creatures from around the multiverse if you can’t have a little fun with it?

But yes, starting with one of the lamest creatures in Magic and going from there, we have pitched battles between random creatures.  By pitched battles, of course I mean nerd arguments about who would win (and yet Batman vs. Captain America doesn’t come up once…huh).  Eight enter, but only one will come away victorious!  Feel free to join in the nerd arguments on the forums or in the comments, of course.

After that, Brian gives us an in-depth rundown of a draft he did on MTGO that he thought was especially interesting.  And it was, so listen up.  You in the back there!  Pay attention!

    Vigor and the Grief Tyrant would be a good team.

    Grief Tyrant: “I hate my life” *Cuts self*

    Vigor: “Dude you’re getting bigger keep doing that”

    Grief Tyrant: “Shut up! You don’t understand me. No one understands me, I wanna write bad poetry and cut myself” *Continues to cut self*

    This process continues until the Grief Tyrant is so big it crushes everyone.

      Holy crap we did! Now I feel terrible about poor Skirk Fire Marshal. I’ll have to buy him lunch or something…

        It’s a good thing this is the Alpha Edition of the Third Strike, otherwise this could have been embarrassing.

    I would like to thank Mike for inducing a coffee-spit of epic proportions. Will Grief Tyrant poetry become the new Your-Dirk-So-Green??? One can only hope… xD
