Episode 307 – Old vs New Wrap Up

Old vs New Mana Rocks

We had lots of news to cover since we hadn’t recorded in two weeks.  We took the holiday weeks off don’t you know.  There’s the new planeswalker, the new card frame, and some other less impressive stuff.  We’ll give you our take on all of it, no matter how lame and/or insignificant.

After that we’re off to our wrap up of the Old vs. New series.  Since we covered all the guilds, we decided to take a look at the other aspects of the two blocks.  Mana rocks, lands, overall block structure, that sort of thing.  It’s actually a pretty good discussion, we hope you guys enjoy.  That’s about it for the wrap up, we’re just shooting for a nice short episode to ease back into the podcasting gig.

You know, to be a short episode, the file sure is pretty big.  Huh.


Proceed to Bane Alley, await further instructions.

    Brian, would say that you’ve met your daily dose of stupidity?

    I enjoyed the Old vs. New super-series. I wasn’t playing during original Ravnica, so it was fun to hear about it. It’s too bad that my favorite color combination, black/blue, doesn’t have a guild. I would have enjoyed hearing your take on it.

    I’m usually pretty cool with change, but I don’t like how the color doesn’t wrap the entire card in the new frame. Call me old-fashioned, but MY Wall of Fire has a full red border and doesn’t lose it’s +1/+0 at the end of turn, Consarnit!

    Either i am missing something, or you guys forgot the dimir. Not trying to be a nitpicky jerk, but i just really love the old vs new series and want to see it completed.
