Episode 246 – Return to Ravnica, Address Unknown

Ravnica Plains122...& an eighth! Terrific. Where the heck is 122 & an eighth?

Yup, it’s preview time again!  We are returning to Ravnica in the next set, Return…to Ravnica.  Really?  Is that the best they could come up with?  Maybe the next time they do this we can just all it “Printing Money” or “Preying on Nostalgia”.  Anyway, the Card Image Gallery is right here so you can follow along:

We also talked about the upcoming Duel Decks: Sorin vs. Tibalt.  Of course, that’s basically all we know, so congratulations to us for covering that one so well.  Here’s a link:

Also, the first Magic Player’s Championship happened, and it sounded completely awesome.  The new World Champion was…huh?  Not the World Champion?  Player of the Year?  But that’s decided by pro point accumulation throughout the year isn’t it?  Not anymore?  Weird.  Anyway, it was Yuuya Watanabe, and here’s the full coverage:

Also, Chewie is still going to the Escapist Expo in Durham next weekend (Sept 14-16).  If you’re at all interested, here’s a link to the Magic events that are happening all weekend:

    2/4 for six:
    Play Ach! Hans, Run! for six. On your next upkeep name Hazezon Tamar. Look through your deck and facepalm when you realize you took out the Hazezon when you eliminated white from the deck. The upkeep after that, name Seedborn Muse instead.

    It sounds like San-Sahn, and he kicked ass. See “Danse Macabre”.

    Parallel Lives is in Innistrad, not M13

    and You guys should of classified each guild in the set if it would appeak to a timmy/johnny/spike

      That’s a very interesting way to think of assessing the guilds, and I think it just didn’t ocurr to us. My initial reaction is that the timmy/johnny/spike types are more easily applied to individual cards that guilds (especially spike, who cares less about asthetics and more about power), but I’ll definately try to remember to bring this up on the episode we record next week. Hopefully having more of the set available will help us to really give these guilds identities.

    I just noted the caption for the image on this episode and I had to respond:

    “Wise man say: forgiveness is divine, but never pay full price for late pizza.”
