Episode 358 – Greg’s Fifteen Minutes of Fame (Ask Your Parents)

Mad Stork

Welcome to our second Kickstarter backer episode! This week we have on Greg, the MadStork, who has been listening to us for far, far too long. And we love him for it! He brings with him an episode idea that really appeals to us. Greg has us combining two things we love – Duel Decks and Commander!

The discussion begins with a brief recap of what Duel Decks in Magic actually are. We then roam around our brains trying to track down other conflicts that would be great as Duel Decks, no matter how ridiculous. Cats are apparently jerks, because we came up with a lot of different conflicts involving cats. It’s pretty ridiculous.

So ridiculous in fact that we picked one of these cat conflicts to do a pair of Story Circles! One is a Cat Commander Duel Deck, because cats are jerks, and the opponent is…you know what? I’m gonna keep that a secret. Just listen and find out!

    I remember entering that Duel Deck competition. My groundbreaking “Poison vs. Leeches” was years, er, year ahead of Scars block’s infect mechanic. The concept was, unfortunately, disqualified from the contest for having 4 copies of Leeches with a 2-card-max limit. I mean, how else was the Leeches deck supposed to get rid of poison!?

    I nearly died at Balls vs. Walls. I’m sure the other people in my office thought I was going into epileptic fits as I shook silently with barely-controlled laughter. Great to meet the Mad Stork! That was a winner of a topic. 😀

    How about Advisors for the ‘Rebels vs. [blank]’? Plenty of Advisor-typed creatures are lawmakers and various other shades of authority.

    And as a random language fact in case you’ve never heard it: Mirri is Finnish for pussy (i.e. a pussy cat, ya dirty person you). Cue G.I. Joe music.
