Episode 367 – Shenanigans Remastered

On this episode, the dorks are taking a look at Exodus, the last set in the Tempest block! We’re putting it through the Mythic Conscription, picking out the rares that would have been mythics if that was a thing back then. After we’re done with Exodus, we pull up the rares and mythics from Tempest Remastered to see how we did over our last three Conscriptions. Spoiler alert: not bad, not bad at all.

Then it’s time for a good old Magic Mad Lib! Brian cooked up a nice long one, and after all the old-school card discussion we were suitably silly. Shenanigans, shenanigans everywhere! And our final thoughts this week were pretty long, with Brian going over three different ones himself and Chewie telling a story about almost dying! We hope you all enjoy!

    Thought experiment!

    How much damage would Oath of Mages have to do to make it Mythic?

    • April 9, 2015 at 6:09 pm | Permalink

      In my mind, the problem with Oath of Mages isn’t the amount of damage, it’s that it isn’t a good Red card, period. When you think about the others they all fit in with a core strategy of the color: Lieges goes in a weenie deck that skimps on lands, Scholars lets you refresh your hand when it gets too low or can trick your opponent into milling himself, Ghouls goes in a deck that just puts the creatures back into the graveyard for some benefit, and Druids powers a deck that only needs a few powerful creatures out at a time. The only thing Red about Mages is the word “damage”, but it doesn’t play into any Red strategy. To be honest, I think it would make for a perfectly decent Black uncommon, but definitely not a Red rare or mythic. That’s part of what I meant when I said it needed a redesign, but I didn’t expand on my thought at the time.

    “Shenanig” and thus, “Shenaniging” does have an entry on Urban Dictionary, so, it must be legit.

    That mad lib was a thing of beauty. you guys must release an episode which is only mad libs from the past. then do another which has a redo of all the mad libs, with new responses.

    I agree with Oath of Mages not feeling like a red card – it’s very much a black suicide effect; if you’re playing burn, you really don’t want to be the player with the lowest life. I’m not sure how it could have been fixed; if it instead said more, that would feel Orzov to me. Maybe if instead had a condition based on whether or not the target player had taken damage the previous turn? Like an inverted luminarch ascension?
