Episode 251 – Prerelease! (I’m Out of Control!)

Tablet of the Guilds art signed by R&D!

Hey look, we’re finally gonna talk about the Prerelease!  Oh shut up, it was worth the wait to have Squanto on episode 250 and you know it.  As you may know, ALL FOUR of the host dorks were at the Return to Ravnica prerelease!  Dirk (of all people) even did TWO!  We had Azorius, Rakdos, and Golgari represented at the one we all did together at Lucky’s Card Shop in Greensboro, NC.  How’d we all do?  Well you’re gonna have to listen for that one, aren’t you?  And that’s the majority of the episode, of course.

That’s not all though!  We also took a look at the new Standard now that RTR is available.  Of course this isn’t anything in-depth or even useful, we just wanted to poke at it and see what’s changed.  My old favorite Kamikaze deck is still alive and kicking, in three different major variations!

We also have major problems with time dilation, time slipping slipping slipping, into the future, and Time Reversal being more than just a card.

Also, I got a ridiculously awesome gift from Wizards of the Coast and 360 Public Relations, and I have to take my final thought to explain it and thank everyone that might have had anything to do with it!  It’s a Tablet of the Guilds print signed by a bunch of RTR’s Design and Development team members!  Holy crap!  You can click on the link down there that says “This episode’s post” to see the picture!

Also, I reveal the source of all my power!

    Great episode dorks!

    I played Rakdos in a recent draft with my playgroup and found that you really need some late game bombs. I don’t know how many time I got my opponent to around 5 life only to run out of gas. The Rakdos that Chewie pulled and the double Hellsteeds Mike got really pushed their respective decks over the edge.

    Keep up the good work!

      I agree. Without my prerelease card and his special friends, my deck would have been “You’re at 7! *dies* That’s the joke!”

    Okay, perhaps I was a little harsh comparing Squanto’s angelic twang with the rest of your tortured-cat excuses for voices. I’m sorry, what? Oh, I did not actually use those words that last time? Well I meant to. In any case, I’m sorry for saying what I didn’t not say but didn’t mean to not. All your voices are perfectly, uh… adequate. (Myke sighs as he longingly marks his calendar awaiting episode 500 for Squanto’s return)
