Episode 308 – Dual-Colored Gods

Mogis, God of Slaughter

On this episode, the dorks take on all the news and the first round of Born of the Gods spoilers!  There’s a serious amount of bizarre news, from coins to a movie to a high-priced Modern Event Deck announcement.  News you can use?  Probably not, but there’s plenty enough news here!  All the links are down below, so follow along if you want!

After that, we have a super secret special guest!  So secret that we didn’t actually know about him until he was on the show!  But out of nowhere we invited JT to join us for previews!  You know him from our GP Charlotte episode and I’m pretty sure he was on another episode at some point.  You’ve got a search bar on the site, if you wanna hear him again I’m sure you can find him.  He’s pretty awesome, and so are the new mechanics and some of the new cards from Born of the Gods!

Everyone enjoy, then go follow JT on Twitter, he’s @NerdPop140!

    Hey, I loved The Wizard as a kid! I refuse to watch it now, however, as it probably is terrible. I made the mistake of watching Voltron recently and it ruined a sacred part of my childhood.

    Also, from Reddit detailing many great points regarding the potential for a MtG movie.

    For everyone who says Fated Conflagration is the first burn spell to directly damage planeswalkers, Magmaquake would like a word. I like tribute a lot, but I think most of the cards so far are easy choices based on the situation. The really tricky ones are the most interesting to me, like the Fanatic of Xenagos. Way more to think about than “Do I have an answer/kill spell?”

      Argh! I really like Magmaquake, so I can’t believe we missed it. Sorry about that. We were probably thrown off by the “damage to target planeswalker” text that hasn’t appeared before.

        Is the only purpose of targeting a planeswalker directly to avoid Leyline of Sanctity/Imperial Mask-type effects or am I missing something?

        • January 23, 2014 at 4:03 pm | Permalink

          I think the primary reason is actually because it allows for stronger damage-based removal spells for planeswalkers. It’s kind of like how Flame Slash would be completely insane if it could also target players. To be balanced it would have to cost a fair amount extra, but then it wouldn’t be as good for killing creatures anymore.

            That makes a ton of sense. Mike, you are kinda the Brian Greene of MtG. Also, I really need to RTFC, because my mind read that the damage was to a player or planeswalker, not creature or planeswalker.

    A question about Silent Sentinel: When it attacks, you can return an enchantment card from the graveyard to the battlefield. If you target an enchantment creature with Bestow, can you put it on a creature like a regular Aura?
    I assume that’s how it would work, but I’ve been wrong about weird interactions before.

    • January 26, 2014 at 9:30 pm | Permalink

      Bestowing is only an option when you’re casting the card as a spell. If you’re bringing it onto the battlefield without casting it, then it can only be a creature.

        Thanks, Mike! Very, very good to know.

    Apotheosis is definitely the word you were thinking of, Mike. Understandably, it’s not a word that gets tossed around often, because, well, how often does one talk about ascension to godhood in everyday conversation? Not surprisingly, the word is Greek in origin.

      Heh, I actually ended up getting my confirmation the very next day when the word was used in an article on DailyMTG.
