Episode 271 – The Half Episode

This week is a bit of a strange one.  We’re short one Lead Rambler, so there’s (supposedly) a lot less talking going on.  We’re also running out of server space on our hosting site, because Chewie’s a big idiot.  Don’t worry, all is well now – until he screws it up again.  The way we fixed it, oddly enough, was to record this episode.  With space running low, we realized that the best way to fix it would be to record a really short one at a slightly lower quality and then remember to make all episodes from here out slightly lower quality so they don’t take up all the server space.  Duh.

So with those two things, this episode is just some news and nonsense. We talk about the Introduction to Grand Prix video that the Walk the Planes guys did.  Well, Chewie talked about it.  You should totally go watch it, it’s awesome.  Then we hit the Sorin vs. Tibalt decklists and You Make the Card 4, along with a quick jaunt down memory lane for the last three YMTC cards.

And of course there’s discussion of addictions (Chewie’s playing Skyrim now), pregnancies (Dirk’s wife is SOOOO pregnant), and assorted other nonsense.  Of course, what strange episode would be complete without a look a little too deeply into Chewie’s personal life?  By the way, the Old Man is awesome.  Like damn.

    Babies really are creatures with suspend, aren’t they? But the random number of time counters might be hard to simulate. Maybe something called “Morph-spend,” a face-down, exiled card with Suspend that you have to flip over and put onto the battlefield on the correct turn. If you don’t put it on the battlefield on the right turn, you lose the game once it is revealed. Also, the cost for this mechanic is eight million mana, because college ain’t cheap, you know.

      As someone who recently kid, I can confirm the eight million number.

    That probably is the best Chewie story ever. I never thought anything could be hilarious and sincere at the same time. Your old man rocks. I mean, wait what?
