Episode 259 – Tundra Wolves Man 13

Tundra Wolves Man

Man, this episode is all over the place.  We have a Cardshark promotion to tell you about, first and foremost.  If you want a shot at winning the five best planeswalkers in Standard, you should definitely pay attention.  Here’s the link, in case you can’t pay attention:

Then, we hear from a Russian listener.  We’ve been at this a long time (over 5 years now in fact) and that might be a first.  How cool is that?

Then we have another Magic Mad Lib.  If you thought last week’s was funny, then you’ve got to hear this one.  Featuring 100% less singing (thank goodness), this Mad Lib might be Chewie’s favorite ever.  No kidding.  The follow-up discussion was also some top-notch stuff.

“What are the monkey people called?” – Dirk

The rest of the episode (yeah, all that was only like a quarter of it at most) is taken up by our responses to two listener emails.  Tony Mendolia (who never fails to tell the world about our new episodes on Google Plus, even though we’ve pretty much given up on it) asks us a question about saving sets of commons and uncommons for his kids.  This was a really good discussion, plus it gave Dirk a chance to weigh in with some serious mic time!

The second half of the show is all about Ravnican flavor.  More specifically, the storyline of Return to Ravnica.  Andrew from CO in LA (confusing, innit?) wanted to know about it, since he wasn’t exactly sure what was going on.  We ended up going over everything we know, or think we know, and connecting as much of it as possible to the original Ravnica storyline.  Another good discussion, and another satisfied listener (in theory anyway, since we didn’t exactly run it past him ahead of time).

Hope you all enjoy, and try not to get stabbed in the uterus.  Just sayin’.

    Unfortunately, Tundra Wolves Man was considered too difficult for American audiences and was significantly dumbed-down. For the full experience and a better story, you should play Jopa-Man, which is the game in its native Russian.

      I tried to take your suggestion, but I think the search result I downloaded from was the wrong one and now I’m getting Kyrgyz mail order bride spam every 5 minutes. I was about to respond with a sarcastic “thanks a lot” but some of these are actually pretty good deals.

        A word of warning, the Kyrgyz mail order bride services are scams, 9 out of 10 times. That said, the tenth, well, let’s just say Mrs. Okuhara and I are very happy together

        I’m going to stop now because of Poe’s Law 🙂

    Niv-Mizzet photobombing Jace is a hilarious idea. Jace was posing, “I’m going to fold my arms to show that I mean business. Be sure to get these awesome buildings behind me in the shot too. Sure glad I wore by extra big cape today.” Then the Dracogenius swoops in. He’s clearly holding back a chuckle to look humorously serious. Jace was so upset that he didn’t even ask the photographer to remove his ‘blue-eye’.

    The flavor nerd is released! So as of book two of original ravnica block The Ghost Quarter became a sort of pocket plane connected to Ravnica but after the mending it was seperated from Ravnica and has become a plane of its own but its location is not known.

    at the beginning of book one the sisters were the guild leaders with the support of the Tetragens but Savra built svogthir a new body and used him to over throw them after which she attempted to kill him and became the “queen of the swarm” for about a week before her attempt to join the chorus of Dryads failed and she was killed and Jarad took over.

      Ah, got it. So Brian was right on the Savra/Sisters thing.
