Episode 290 – Horde Magic of Two Varieties (Live)

Hey look, another live episode!  The dorks gathered at Dirk’s house to hang out, play some Magic, and try to remember what each of us actually look like.  Oddly enough we look just like our cartoons on the website, only slightly less cartoony.  Hey, I said slightly!

We played a rousing game of Commander right off the bat, with some happenings that happened that were seriously awesome.  Okay, so I either don’t want to spoil anything or I don’t actually remember anything that happened.  I’ll leave that up to your imagination.   Either way is fine.  It was a pretty good game though.

Then we took a short break and played a game of Horde Magic with the deck sent to us by a listener, Lou.  Of course, he built it for other more intricate reasons, but my incredibly well-prepared self had neglected to bring the rules he made up for the alternate format.  So we played a simple game of Horde Magic, treating all the */* Minion tokens as 2/2 zombies.  Then we played another one, treating them as having power and toughness equal to the number of them on the battlefield.  Both were fun games, and we hope you enjoy listening to them as much as we enjoyed playing them!

    What few games of horde I’ve played were fun, though since the horde deck was a home-brew of mine, balance was an issue. Did you post a deck list of this somewhere?

    Sweet episode! Is there anywhere I can see the actual rules for what sounds like a blast of a format?
