Episode 313 – From Kitchen to Tourney

Wizards Play Network

On this episode, the dorks cover a few more bits of news. Last week we missed that some of the Conspiracy cards are going to not be legal in Vintage and Legacy, which sparks some discussion about why that could be.  Hasbro is loving the Magic, because it’s making them lots of money.  Not only that, but they’re gonna be making some Pop! vinyl figures and actual action figures of your favorite planeswalkers…and Nissa.  For links to all of this, just look down a bit.

But the meat of the episode comes from an idea from our old buddy JT.  A very old idea.  We’re going to prepare you to move from the kitchen table to the tournament scene.  We’re not talking about cards or formats (at least not much), we’re primarily talking about mental preparations.  Because we’re trying to cover everything it might sound a little intimidating, but it’s really not.  It’s really hard to sum up all the different aspects we talked about on this episode, so you’re just going to have to listen.

It comes down to this: if you’ve been thinking about going to any sort of tournament, be it a prerelease, FNM, or a GP…then GO! Give it a shot, it’ll be fine.  Just listen to us first.
