Episode 247 – Stack of Pancakes!

Cyclonic Rift of Pancakes

Look, it’s really late.  You’re getting this episode really early because I’m going to be at the Escapist Expo all weekend.  Mike and I were up way too late getting our respective decks for the big Saturday tournament up and running, then I had to go ask the hot nurse upstairs if she had a needle to help me get this MASSIVE splinter out of my hand.  Seriously, you guys should have seen it, it was crazy.  So now it’s 3am and I still haven’t finished posting this.  But you don’t care about any of that, you just wanna know what we talked about don’t you?

First off, Mike and Brian told us all about their experiences at the Magic Celebration, which was pretty awesome.  Then we had to…let’s say discuss.  We had to discuss the fact that the Prerelease cards are the same as the Intro Pack rares.  See?

From there, it was pretty much just all previews all the time.  We covered everything that we could find that had been officially spoiled.  I wonder what they’ll come out with next?  Probably a stack of pancakes!

Oh yeah, and Bill joined us for this episode!  You know, the guy behind the Squee Draft videos!  You can find him on Twitter @SqueeGoblnNabob

    hey guys, i just thought that Loxodon Smiter was holding a Behemoth Sledge, not a warhammer. what do you think?

    • September 14, 2012 at 12:20 pm | Permalink

      I agree, it does look a lot more like the Alara art for Sledge than it does the Mirrodin etc. art for Warhammer. Of course, it could just be the Warhammer 2013 Ravnica SE model.

        Oh man, did you see the specs on the SLT model? It comes with a freakin’ iPad AND has a heated & air-conditioned handle! The lap of luxury, man!

            Don’t bother with the retro-encabulator attachment; complete waste of money.

    Stack of Pancakes 2BR

    Target creature an opponent controls gets a number of Pancake Counters equal to it’s CMC. (A Pancake Counter gives a creature summoning sickness, you may remove one Pancake Counter from a creature you control during your upkeep)

    Overload 4BBRR

    The real secret to Niv Mizzet’s success was his fantastic pancake recipe. Nobody can resist Niv Mizzets pancakes.

    Hey guys just wanted to say thanks for giving me something to listen to while programming at work. And wanted to see if anyone saw the combo with Corpsejack Menace and Primordial Hyrdra. Pretty gross.

    Also, Menace’s head is shaped like a vagina.. just saying

      The art for Corpsejack Menace was done by Georgia O’keeffe, that’s all. I believe she also did Delraich.

    One thing that hasn’t been mentioned that really made me ‘WOW’ was the art on the basic lands. I looooove this setting, and the lands just capture the essence of it so well. I’m buying a fat pack, and am actually excited about that pack of 100 lands…

      Love the Ravnica islands… and Kamigawa islands, and Zendikar islands. Islands always get the nice art, I guess. I definitely regretted not loading up on lands during the original Ravnica. I haven’t bought a fat pack in years, but you’re right, this is probably a good one to pick up.

    OK…just watched the episode of Storage Wars with the M:TG cards in it.
    Beta Mox Pearl, Beta Timetwister, Unlimited Black Lotus and he took $700 for them. What a moron!!!!! I love it when stupid people who think that they’re intelligent get screwed!!!!!!!

    • September 19, 2012 at 11:45 pm | Permalink

      Actually, it was Collector’s Edition Pearl and Twister, and the Lotus was beat to hell. Depending on when in the last year the segment was filmed (there’s a Parasitic Implant in the shoebox), it was either fair or only a slight lowball.

        Well, hell….that’s what I get for watching it on my computer while half asleep…LOL
        At least I did get to see it.
        I feel sorry for whoever “inherits” my Magic cards….
