Episode 240 – Primal Ducks (Toolkit Deckbuilding)

Primal Ducks

We begin this episode with a look at the Magic 2013 Event Decks, now that they’ve FINALLY released them.  If you’d like to follow along, you can do so here: http://www.wizards.com/Magic/Magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/arcana/1022

But of course that’s not the real reason we recorded this episode.  Brian bought a brand-spanking-new Deckbuilder’s Toolkit, opened everything up, catalogued it, and sent us our homework.  We were to take this pool and build a 60-card deck with an eye towards multiplayer of course.  Unfortunately, Mike was unable to join us for this one but perhaps he’ll tell us about it next week.  As for the rest of us, I think you’ll appreciate the decks we built as well as the decks we didn’t build.  We spent a fair amount of time talking about both.  The pool was pretty deep (except for one color).  If you’d like to see the card pool in all its glory, here it is: http://themanapool.com/pool-notices/ep240pool/

By the way, here’s the Onion link that Chewie mentioned during the final thoughts. It’s meant to be funny, but do take it seriously: http://www.theonion.com/articles/sadly-nation-knows-exactly-how-colorado-shootings,28857

    Well Brian, that’s why Evan and Brad are payed to do those sets reviews, because they obviously know more than you do on how to evaluate cards, and btw, value is important

        eh, maybe I overreacted, after thinking about it, Brian has a good point, value doesn’t always define a card, my bad fellas, forgive me
