Episode 261 – Crashing All the Gates

Ogre Gatecrasher

We begin this episode short one host, but don’t worry about him.  He’ll show up in the nick of time.  Brian gives us his take on last episode, throwing out ideas for Hellsing seen through the lens of Magic cards.  Then he and Chewie tell us about some of their experiences with the Return to Ravnica Booster Battle Packs, or whatever they’re called.  But of course, that’s not why any of you are here, is it?

Yes, we’re going to hit each and every Gatecrash card that had been revealed when we recorded this.  And holy crap there were a lot of them.  From the first five that revealed the new guild mechanics all the way down to everyone’s favorite planeswalker bro, we’re taking a look at them all.  And be sure you stay tuned until the very end, because we have some information about playing Extort cards in EDH that came all the way from a high-level judge.

    “Sun Butt”… okay, I would have gone with Holy Armor or maybe the Honor Guard ability, but, yeah… Sun Butt, I like that.

    “Holy armor,” of course. That’s an answer so perfect it undermines the humor of all the joke names.

      To satisfy both tradition and humor, may I suggest a compromise: “Butt-Breathing”. A cursory search of Magic threads seems to lend credence to its usage.

        I agree and will support this in all ways possible. “Butt-Breathing,” an honorable name for a highly desirable ability.

        “Sun-Farting” sounds good too, as a mirror to Fire-Breathing..
