Episode 338 – Presumitably All the Big News

Jeskai - Narset, Enlightened Master

Since last week’s Exiled! was something we really wanted to do right, we focused on it exclusively and ignored the insanely huge news that dropped that week.  So this week we’re making up for it by going extremely deep on the new way that Magic blocks will be done.  And I mean it, we’re leaving no stone unturned here.

After that, we’re telling you all about the different clans of Tarkir!  We’re hitting their mechanics, their color identities, their khans, and anything else we can think of!  There were FAR too many preview cards to talk about this week, so we finish up by hitting the high notes and calling it done.

It’s a really long one (silence truncation knocked off, no kidding, 27 minutes!), but it’s a really good one!  Let us know what you think about the new Standard, the clans, and whatever else you can think of!

    BREAKING: Wizards confirms that the time travel aspect of Tarkir block will see Sorin and Sarkhan attempting to prevent an altered timeline in which the entire multiverse has been turned into an apocalyptic wasteland following the changes to the core set and block structure.

      Will they be fighting a superintelligent race of artifact creatures who must teleport through time naked?

        Probably, since the phyrexians already do all of that, so the supervillians for the next set are already laid out.
